WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

If you can’t beat the heat, it’s best to head outdoors for a perfect night of music. That’s right, I am talking about fabulous concert attire. Now going to a concert in the south requires strategic planning. Once you factor in the weather, the crowds and the uncontrollable dancing, you’re definitely going to want to make sure your outfit can withstand the night.

My style tip for concerts is to sport layers. It sounds crazy, but some summer nights can get pretty chilly, so it’s best to be prepared. Obviously you don’t want to wear a parka in the summer, but a light denim jacket or flowing kimono can be a life saver once the sun sets.

Take a look at this Fashionista’s edgy look. I love this Fashionista’s style solution to make her outfit last all night long. Her secret is her flannel shirt tied around her waist. Not only is it adding a bold color to her chic, all black ensemble, but it can also provide a little extra warmth as it starts to cool down later into the evening.

Accompanying her flannel shirt are two classic pieces every girl should keep in their closets. The first is a go-to black shirt. This Fashionista’s three quarter length shirt is ideal because it can be used for a variety of events, from interviews to social gatherings. The second classic garment needed in your wardrobe is a black skirt. Our Fashionista has opted for a chic body conscious skirt that has endless possibilities in terms of mixing and matching.

Wrapping up her look, she is wearing combat boots with an awesome pocket detail that I am obsessed with. Although she keeps her jewelry limited to a single necklace, the magnifying glass pendant ties the whole look together.

Try this look out at your next concert and you’ll be jamming without any worries.

One Simple Change: This Fashionista was headed to a rap concert, but let’s say you are headed to a night out with the girls. Ditch the flannel shirt for a sleek black glittery blazer. It will add just enough shine fit for dinner and dancing.
