Concert Attire: What To Wear At A Concert (PHOTOS)


If you take into consideration the pushing, sweat and screaming fans wearing tees and tanks showing off their favourite bands, putting together an outdoor concert outfit that's chic is often an afterthought.

With the first weekend of Coachella kicking off tomorrow, and music festival Osheaga taking place later this summer, we've pulled together a list of our must-have fashion pieces -- and must-do tips -- to help you survive a concert in style.

Comfortable Shoes

You're probably going to be on your feet for a long period of time if you head to an outdoor concert. We suggest skipping the wedges and heels and opting to flat shoes and ankle-length boots.

Easy To Open Bag

Your bag can be a saviour at music festivals. Bring a medium-sized bag to carry your water, snacks, camera and all your other essentials. Remember, limit your zippers and outer pockets -- you want to keep your goods protected.

Light Pants And Shorts

If you plan on showing off any dance moves, we suggest keeping your outfits lightweight. Try cropped pants or loose-fitted cargo shorts that'll let your legs breathe.

Statement T-Shirt

For the most part, tees are made to stand out. Sticking with spring trends, try neon colours, black and navy stripes and the crop top.

Denim Jacket

Depending on the city you're in, bringing a jacket is always a good idea. This season, stick to denim jackets or leather coats.

Simple Accessories

Don't be afraid to accessorize -- just think practically. Sunglasses, straw hats and string bracelets are all versatile and easy to wear outdoors. If you're thinking about wearing you're studded bracelets, just remember how close you'll be to the others when in a mosh pit.

Here are 10 of our product recommendations for concert attire:
