WHAT TO WEAR: Concert On Campus

Midterms are back, but for a lot of us here at Kent State University there has been another event taking priority over studying, The 1975’s concert on our campus. Don’t get me wrong, exams are important, but how often is it that a widely popular band from the UK makes their way into Kent, Ohio? Exactly.

The 1975, along with the majority of their fanbase, has established a very unique style and brand. The front men’s clothes are typically centered around black jeans and leather jacket looks, while their album art and stage effects utilize pale pink and blue florals. Their shows consist of on-stage cigarette smoking and glasses of wine to accompany the setlist, which consists of a mixture of old jams and songs from their newest album.

My main concern when getting dressed for any show is comfort. From standing in line beforehand (or if you’re like me, sitting outside the venue for 6+ hours to secure your front row spot), to singing and dancing for the entire 2 hour set, being comfortable while still looking fashionable is key.

This Fashionista killed it in this oversized, DIY’d tee with the band’s logo from Hot Topic. The lace-up top trend is huge right now, and she pulled it off effortlessly by pairing it with heeled booties from Kohl’s and a stack of Alex and Ani bracelets. Her look was simple yet fun, and perfectly executed the cute and comfy combo that every concert-goer strives for.

In my opinion, there is no better place for people to gathering fashion inspiration than music venues. Seeing an artist’s musical style reflected in the clothing of the audience is something so interesting and makes each show fun and unique. Plus, admiring the outfits of those around you is a perfect way to pass the time while you’re waiting for the show to start.
