What To Wear: Concert Chic

With the arrival of Summer, comes the arrival of the outdoor concerts. Whether you're heading to your favourite bands show or the Warped Tour, you should never be struggling to find the perfect outfit to keep you looking chic and stylish all day long. 

When I head out to a concert, I almost always wear a sleeveless top. Some prefer to wear their favourite bands t-shirt, but my theory is if it's boiling hot out, I don't want sweat to show up all over the place. A plain white flowy tank top is perfect to pair with a cute pair of pastel coloured short shorts. Pastel shorts, or any coloured shorts for that matter, add a pop of Summer colour to any neutral outfit. If you're on a budget, check out Hollister's selection of vibrant shorts! 

Footwear is very important at any concert. Blisters are the worst thing that can happen to you when you're standing for hours on end. Also, you never want to leave with only one shoe on. I usually look for a gladiator sandal. They stay on your feet and are usually pretty durable. If you find yourself on the shoulders of someone else or surfing the crowd, the last thing you want to worry about is losing a flip flop! 

I usually skip the purse. My fear of people grabbing it off of my shoulder is far too great and they're also not comfortable sitting on your arm all night. I opt for a stylish backpack. They're larger but still maintain the level  of comfort that you're seeking. Also, they're perfect for housing some makeup to touch up your skin. My must have product for any outdoor concert is a pressed matte powder to keep shine down. 

Lastly, you can accessorize your outfit with some bangles and sunglasses! Outdoor concerts do not have to be difficult! Looking good and stylish can be accomplished by keeping a few staple items in your wardrobe!
