WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

June 3rd, 2015 at 2:00am

Finding something to wear that will keep you cool during the day at an outdoor concert, yet warm when the sun goes down may be a challenge. Fashionistas not only want to look trendy while they enjoy live music, but they strive for comfort so that their outfits do not interfere with their musical experiences. In this case, a soft cotton crop top and a flowy boho skirt do just the trick. This skirt was a serendipitous thrift store find, but similar items can be found at stores, such as this unique piece from Urban Outfitters. The black crop top was purchased from Charlotte Russe.

Next weekend I will be going to a Lana Del Rey concert, and it’s what I immediately thought of when I saw this Fashionista’s outfit. It is perfect for an outdoor concert on a sticky summer night. Our Fashionista has added simple accessories to finish off her look. A simple gold chain necklace emphasizes the mock turtle neck of the crop top and some comfortable, simple sandals with elastic ankle bands add a polished touch to complement the flowy skirt. Other unique accessories that would add flair to an outfit like this would be a delicate hair chain, or a floppy hat that would make a fashionable statement and protect your skin from the harsh summer sun.

One Simple Change: To transfer this look from an outdoor concert experience to a night out, simply switch out the flat sandals for a pair of chunky platform sandals like these from Windsor Smith Australia. The shoes will be comfortable to walk in, but will add an edge to the feminine skirt. Finish off the look with a plum lip and a low ponytail for a sophisticated and daring look.
