You’ve been planning months for your big concert, and now it’s finally here! So, of course, to make the whole experience even more memorable, you want to dress in a way that matches the show’s vibe. But what should you wear?
I’ll be honest, and most people think concert attire is a bunch of pointless nonsense. They try to gauge which outfit they should pack based on the genre of music they’re going to attend or what temperature the night calls for. But I beg to differ; concerts are so much more than a good performance. They offer an incredible opportunity for new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
The clothes you wear will reflect your personality and set the tone for how you want the night to go. Here is how to dress accordingly:

1. White Dresses
This is a classic and elegant choice that suits any concert. Keep it simple, but don’t wear anything too tube-like or too tight.
2. Black Dresses
If you’re going to a funeral, this might be the right choice for you. But if you want to make a statement at your concert, this is an excellent option! Make sure the dress isn’t too short and show some cleavage — we wouldn’t want anyone to get distracted from the music while they’re trying to enjoy it!
3. Sexy Dresses
Maybe the show you’re going to isn’t a “dressy” event. Still, if you want to impress someone with your sexy dress, this is a good option! Don’t be afraid of high-cut dresses and show some skin!
4. Lace Dresses
This is another classic option that looks great on almost everyone. A lace dress will look fantastic if you want to look elegant in a simple way.
5. Colorful Dresses
It doesn’t harm to be a little colorful when it comes to dressing up for a concert! If you want to show off your personality, don’t be afraid of wearing something bright and bold.
6. Leather Dresses
If you want to look sexy in a classy way, this is the perfect option for you! However, keep in mind that leather doesn’t look good on everyone if you’re not confident with wearing leather yet, it’s best not to wear this one!
7. Midi Dresses
This is another classic that looks fantastic on almost everyone. If you’re going to a concert with your mom, she’ll approve of this style!
8. Denim Dresses
Another classic that works on almost everyone is denim! It’s one of the most flattering fabrics ever and looks fantastic when the light hits it just right. A denim dress can be worn in any event and makes a statement while still appropriate.
9. Dresses With Stripes
Stripes are a classic choice for dresses and suits because of their simplicity and versatility. This is an excellent option if you want to look stylish without drawing too much attention to yourself!
10. Shirt With Jeans
This is the most classic way to wear clothes when you go to a show. It’s comfortable, easy, and usually the lightest option.
11. Tank Top
If you’re going all-in on concerts this summer, a tank top will help you stay calm and, most importantly, comfortable!
These are incredibly common today, but they’ve been around for quite some time! They’re always chic, and they come in various styles as well as colors, so you can find one that perfectly matches your personality size-wise too!
Booties have become pretty standard these days, but they used to be very restricted in style and look until not so long ago! You can find them in all styles, colors, and heel heights, so you’ll find one that compliments your style!
14. Jeans With Blazer
Jeans with a blazer are an excellent style for you. If you want to dress up for a show but still be super comfy in the meantime, then this is my top choice for what to wear to a concert! You can still keep your casual looks while looking chic at the same time!
This is a good option if you’re cold and want to stay warm through the night! I’m all about layering, so I usually pair it with a dress and throw some tights underneath.
These are great options if you don’t have time to heat your home before going out. Just grab a scarf or a turtleneck, and you’ll be all set!
These are great to add warmth to your legs while still being comfortable. They’re also super easy to wear and match almost anything!
18. Jack Purcells
Jack Purcells have been completely popular for a long time now, and they’re my favorite type of shoes! They go with just about any outfit and make you look so great!
Last but not least shorts! Now I know that most people say they don’t wear these because they think it’s too casual but trust me, the right shorts can look just as chic as your favorite pair of jeans or pants!
A simple T-shirt should do the trick. Even if it’s a band you don’t know, you can fit in by wearing your favorite sports team T-shirt.
These are good for standing in long lines, hopping into an action-packed pit and hopping out, or just getting from point A to point B quickly. You’ll be glad you have comfy footwear for when you’re off your feet.
22. Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are almost synonymous with rock music. If you don’t have one, check out some of the band tees and get one that fits your style and remember to wear it open!
23. Patterned Shirts
A fun pattern shirt can turn any plain outfit into a cool look that will wow the crowd at your next concert with its originality! These are particularly good options if you don’t have much color in your wardrobe as they add some without being overwhelming.
The coat should match your outfit, but it doesn’t have to be anything special as long as it’s warm enough for the weather outside. You can also take off your jacket during the show if it’s too hot and get it back on when you want to.
25. Long Sleeve Shirt
If it’s really cold out or you just don’t like how informal short sleeves make you look, go with a long sleeve shirt or sweater as an alternative to your rockin’ tee!
If you’re just going to shows, a pair of dark jeans will suffice. The key here is to match your pants with either an undershirt, tank top, or sweater that is the same color and style as your jeans.
If you’re going to be in a more formal setting at a concert but don’t want to wear dress pants, give these chinos a try. They are dark and not too dressy, but look good enough for a concert!
If you don’t like wearing a coat, a sweater is a great replacement as long as you pair it with the right shirt or top. It can stand alone or be paired with something else.
A hoodie is an easy way to show that you’re down with a band, but it can get old fast. A plain black, gray, or white one are all good options.
30. Vans Shoes
Vans shoes are the perfect shoes for the 90s music fan and are good for almost any occasion. Go with black or white and add some colorful laces to really make them your own.
