What Should You Wear to a Concert?
Many factors should be taken into consideration when building your concert-going outfit. Is the event inside or outside? Does it take place at day or night? How much walking will you have to do?
Day vs. Night
Daytime concerts are a great event to showcase some laid-back, retro style. Consider going for a throwback outfit with colorful bohemian vibes, espadrille sandals, cut-off denim shorts and a bold pair of sunglasses. And don’t forget about band T-shirts!
At night, it’s time to let your glamorous side shine. This does not mean you have to sacrifice comfort, either. You can pick a trusty pair of jeans to pair with a fun top for an evening outdoor show, or you can really blow it out in a sassy dress paired with heels and bold jewelry.
It all depends on the type of show you’re attending, the setting of the concert and the vibe you’re going for.
What to Wear in Certain Weather
Outdoor concerts are going to be held no matter the weather in most cases, be it rain or shine. This means you need to be prepared for anything when heading out to a festival or event that’s open to the elements.
If rain is expected, be sure to bring a water-resistant or waterproof jacket. You will probably also want to bring an extra pair of shoes to change into. And don’t forget an umbrella or ponchos.
When it’s cold, layers are key. That said, you don’t want to opt for outerwear that’s too bulky and makes it hard to move. Choose light coats or jackets like denim jackets, bomber jackets or windbreakers to add that layer that keeps you warm.
On the other hand, if you’re heading to a concert in the middle of summer, you’ll need to beat the heat. This does mean you’re open to other elements, like the sun. Therefore, you may still want a light layer to keep your skin protected. You’ll also want a hat to provide some shade for your face.
Prioritize Function & Comfort
Concerts are events where you’ll likely be moving around a lot, from checking out a variety of stages at festivals to dancing in the aisles when the music starts. This means that you’ll want to wear clothing that allows you to move with ease and in comfort.
To maintain all-day comfort, choose clothing that offers stretch materials that move along with you. Plenty of bottoms like jeans, jeggings and leggings offer stretch properties, making them great to wear to a concert.
You’ll also want to wear clothing that’s breathable, keeping you cool when attending a show in warm weather. Look for clothes that provide moisture-wicking material, as those items will draw sweat away from your skin, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable all day.
With these factors in mind, it makes sense to consider athleisure clothing as part of your concert-going wardrobe. Items like active leggings, tees, tank tops and more can provide the comfort you’ll appreciate
Along with comfort, you’ll want items that offer functionality. This means that you’ll want to find leggings with pockets so you can keep your phone and other must-haves close by. The same is true for other items, as you’ll want to find jackets with pockets, pants with pockets and much more.
Lastly, you’re sure to consider bringing a backpack, bag or purse to the event for added on-the-go storage. Check with the venue to see the rules on items that can be carried in. Some concerts and venues limit the size or type of bag that can be brought in for security purposes.
As you prepare to build a concert-ready outfit for any kind of music event, shop Kohl’s and find women’s apparel that will really sing.
