For The Guys

Cool Button-Up Shirt

A casual, cool button-up shirt is a must-have in any guy’s wardrobe. This olive green shirt ($99) can easily go from work to concert without missing a beat and will transition easily into fall.

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.

Leather Boots

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.

Bomber Jacket

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.

Wide-Brimmed Fedora

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.

Leather Belt

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.

Classic Sunnies

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.

Blush Midi Skirt

Forget the mini skirt, this summer has been all about the midi skirt. This blush-toned number ($108) is a great choice if you want to turn heads thanks to its daring high-slit. Go for a summery all-neutral look by pairing the skirt with nude-colored sandals and a white crop top.

Bold Statement Belt

Wrapping a statement belt around your waist is an easy way to elevate a basic outfit. Layer this eye-catching gold belt ($188) over a little black dress or just a simple tank top and jean shorts combo and you’re ready to head out to the concert.

Flirty Black Jumpsuit

This black hip-hugging jumpsuit ($198) screams It Girl. It’s impossible not to feel like a total babe while wearing it. We suggest playing up the look with bold red lipstick. After all, attending a concert is a special occasion.

Lace-Up Bodysuit

Summertime is all about rocking the bodysuit. Keep things fresh for the concert by styling this white lace-up bodysuit ($149) with a pair of dress shorts for a look that’s feminine, fun, and oh so cool.

Comfy Black Sandals

When it comes to concert footwear, comfort is a must. You want to be able to dance all night without having your feet pay the price. These chunky heeled sandals ($695) are the perfect blend of comfort and style.
