WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

As the weather heats up, summertime ushers in months of freedom from tests, stress and sleepless nights. This freedom enables Fashionista to reinvent their unique, personal styles. Concerts are the perfect platform to get creative and push boundaries. We attend concerts to appreciate the artists but, let’s be honest, they’re also places to see and be seen. From the flappers of the ‘20s to the flower crowns of today, the music industry along with festival fashions have had a heavy influence on youth culture.

This Fashionista’s concert attire caught my eye because of the subtle textures, details and effortless combination of colors. She made her adorable button-up skirt stand out by pairing it with this striped top. The unique neckline flatters her shape while attributing to her outfit’s retro-vibe. Since she is attending an outdoor concert, she opted for a pair of classic Converse sneakers that are as cute as they are practical! Accenting this outfit with a few simple rings adds another element without distracting from the detail of the skirt.

This Fashionista’s ensemble exemplifies a reinvention of personal style. The subtle textures of the skirt and top mix flawlessly. Take note: mixing textures and patterns is an easy way to rework your favorite summer clothing pieces. Concerts are also great opportunities to play around with color. As someone who does not embrace color enough in their wardrobe, I was inspired by this Fashionista’s unique mix of colors that is understated yet edgy. Although bright colors are often considered a summertime staple, experimenting with muted colors can be just as bold!

One Simple Change: If you’re not in on the concert scene, you can transition this outfit into weekend wear by switching out the sneaks for sandals and throwing your hair up into a messy bun. This gives the timeless-yet-trendy ensemble a more casual feel.
