10 Cute Outfit Ideas for Every Type of Concert

Whether you’re a Bonnaroo gal or the beats of Taylor Swift’s arena tour are more your speed, we’ve got the concert outfit for you. After all, when it comes to concert-going, a genre-appropriate look is almost as important as the music (well, to us at least). Of course, there are a few other factors to consider when seeking concert outfit ideas: You need to be able to dance, possibly walk long distances (if you’re attending a music festival), and brave the elements if the concert is outdoors. (On that note, also check out our cheat sheet of the best types of shoes to wear to a concert.)

Read on to see and shop 10 concert-ready outfits for rock, country, pop, music festivals, and more. We’re here to help you rock out in style.

While you want to avoid looking costumey for a country music concert, you do want to give a subtle nod to the genre. Mix plaid with more sophisticated pieces and keep denim polished. And no matter what you do, don’t forget the boots. (Yeehaw!)

If you have tickets to a Top-40 star’s tour, bust out your favorite crop top and jeans, top them off with a duster or bomber jacket, and slip on a comfy pair of heels or ankle boots.

Perhaps it’s the wide-open spaces and daylight, but outdoor music festivals are more of a fashion show than any other type of musical event. Try a matching set or chic romper for a cool, easy look, or take advantage of the Woodstock vibe and bust out your best hippie-chic looks. Just avoid going too far—oversize headdresses and barely-there outfits are never a desirable look. And remember: flats. Always flats.

Try a matching set or chic romper for a cool, easy look, or take advantage of the Woodstock vibe and bust out your best boho-chic looks, preferably on the subtler side. And remember: You want flats. Always flats.
