Slim Taper Fit Jeans
A nice tailored pair of black jeans is everything. These Levi’s ones (69.50) are classics and affordable too which makes them an easy choice for a concert and everyday wear. Pair them with a button up shirt to dress them up or a casual tee for a laid-back look.
These vintage-inspired leather boots ($375) will instantly make your concert outfit look extra cool. They’ll look just as good with a worn-in pair of jeans and a plaid shirt as they will with slacks and a dress shirt.
Like we said, summer nights can be breezy. Keep warm with the jacket of the moment: the bomber jacket. This white sherling jacket ($195) has a collar, which gives it an extra pop.
Dress up your concert look with a wide-brimmed hat like this one ($39). It’s budget-friendly and it’s guaranteed to get tons of wear well into the colder months.
When it comes to fashion, it’s all about the details and this braided leather belt ($215) adds just the right touch of sophistication to a look. The best part? It’s a timeless piece that will last you for years to come.
If you’re heading to an outdoor concert, cool sunglasses are a must. Those that are not into flashy shades can opt for a classic pair of Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunnies ($200). The retro shape and gold frames make them forever in style.
For The Girls
Fringe Biker Jacket
Summer nights can get a little chilly. Get cozy with this edgy, fringy biker jacket ($72) and we promise you’ll be the coolest-dressed music-lover in the audience. The jacket will no doubt become a staple in your fall wardrobe too.
Satin Slip Dress
Nothing beats a sexy slip dress for a night out. This dress’ ($115) gold satin finish, strappy back details, and flowy silhouette make it a must-have for dancing to the tunes of your favorite artist. Style it with minimalist jewelry, soft wavy hair, and a pair of tiny heeled or flat sandals.
