Whether you want to look strapping in stripes, flirty in floral or subtly chic, we have the outfit for you. Trust us, these 4 looks will have heads turning your way at the next concert you go to!
Striped Cropped Bralet from LavishAlice $25
Anomalous Hem Red Skirt from Romwe $25
Studded Black Peep Toe Wedge from Charlotte Russe $48
Black White Sheer Striped Top from LavishAlice $31
Distressed High-Waisted Shorts from Etsy $35
Peep-Toe Cut-Out Bootie from GoJane $28
Studded Envelope Clutch from XXI $25
Woven Straw Clutch from XXI $17
Dangling Triangle Stud Earrings from Charlotte Russe $6
Cross Tassel Earrings from GoJane $6.90
Concerts, though fun, are often held in large arenas that lack sufficient air conditioning and consumer-conscious seating arrangements. More often than not, concert-goers find themselves stuck behind someone twice their size or are left overwhelmed by the intensity of the heat in the arena. These ensembles aren’t the end-all-be-all cure for bad seating and body heat, but they do offer style, height, comfort, and are sure to keep you cool with their airy fabrics. The distressed cut-offs, cross-tassel earrings, and studded envelope clutch offer a rocker-girl feel, while the striped sheer top and skirt add a feminine touch. Not to mention, the cropped short and the asymmetrical skirt both elongate your legs, which is always a plus!
Mesh Top Floral Petticoat Dress from Storets $75
Ankle Wrap Peep-toe Pumps form GoJane $29
Curve Trimmed Earring from XXI $3.80
This floral petticoat dress screams flirty and fun! The mesh straps give the dress a night look, and the thick platform heel minimizes the actual shoe height and offers great foot support—which you’ll need for all the dancing you’ll be doing!
Sparkle and Fade Context Dress from UrbanOutfitters for $49
Criss Cross Back Wedge Bootie from Charlotte Russe $38.50
Two-tone Cuff from GoJane $12.70
The sparkle and fade context dress’ pattern is entrancing and offers a flattering silhouette for both voluptuous and petite frames. The criss-cross back wedge bootie offers height— which is always a plus at concerts—as well as comfort in its solid sole, and the two-tone cuff acts as a nice contrasting piece.
