Alternative rock is my favorite kind of music. I love listening to bands, like Cage The Elephant, The Lumineers and The Arcs, while getting ready for my day or night out. What’s even better than having my most loved bands jamming on my speakers? Going to concerts, of course!
Recently, I saw The Arcs perform. The band was incredible. I even got to meet them after the show! It was a night filled with great music and even better people. Besides watching the amazing performance, I loved planning what I was going to be wearing to the show.
I’ve learned a lot about what to wear and not to wear to concerts. So, whether you’re going to see Beyonce at her “Formation” world tour or your favorite indie band at a small local venue, here are a few tips to make sure you have a rock-out ready outfit:
Keep these babies flat. You want to get your dance on and be comfortable, so this is not a night to bring out your heels-no matter the height.
Put your lipgloss, wallet, and phone in a small cross body bag. My current obsession is my Ceri Hoover cross body bag. I also invested in a small wallet by FASHIONABLE that I can easily transfer from bag to bag. Pack light, so you can dance through the night.
The only time you might be outside is when you’re getting to the venue and waiting to get inside. Even if it’s super cold, I highly suggest you keep your sub zero winter jacket at home. You want something you can easily hold, so opt for, let’s say, a leather/faux leather jacket, fur/faux fur jacket, or a camo jacket.
Have fun with your look. Whether I’m going to a black-tie gala or the airport, I use any reason to play dress-up!
With a lot of heart,
