How to dress for a rock concert

rock-gals If you’re a die-hard fan of rock music, you’ll certainly take the opportunity of attending a rock concert given the chance. It’s possible that you may never have been to a concert before. There are also other first-timers who aren’t really music-lovers but merely accompanying their friends or dates.

Now, of course, at a concert, it’s the music that matters the most. However, it is natural to think about what you should wear to the concert. It’s not everyday you get to attend a rock concert and thus want to look your best.

Casual and chic

The key words to rock concert attire are stylish, practical and comfortable. Jeans and leather jackets are akin to uniforms for rock concerts. You can wear these in various styles and combinations. Just make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re wearing. Expensive outfits will be inappropriate at a concert as they can get spoiled or torn.

The guys

Men can wear jeans in varied colors with t-shirts, shirts or sweaters. A belt will make for a cool accessory. Combine these with a leather jacket provided it’s not too hot that day. Shoes are the best footwear; sandals should be avoided as treading on feet is not uncommon at concerts.

The gals

Women can wear jeans and a black, white or colorful t-shirt along with a jacket. Try and avoid too many accessories like bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Tie your hair up if it is long and wear it open if you have short hair. High heels are best avoided. Stay comfortable with shoes that are flat or have low heels.

Dos and don’ts

Ensure that you carry sunscreen and sunglasses for outdoor concerts. Bags and purses are best left at home as it would be inconvenient to hold them when you’re standing or moving around.

Remember that it is important not to obsess too much over what you wear: keep it simple. Last but not the least, enjoy the concert!
