Spring is here and music is in the air! If you are like us, you’ll be spending most of your time hitting up shows with your friends–like Blake Lively (the totally on-point fashionista above) and her best friend, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Florence Welch[/lastfm], from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Florence and the Machine.[/lastfm]
Picking out the perfect outfit for a concert or show doesn’t have to be hard. All you need is the five essential items–an awesome t-shirt, a funky jacket, a rockin’ pair of jeans, the perfect bag, and shoes that are functional and fashionable.
Check out how we styled these five different pieces for five kinds of shows–the rock show, the pop show, the jazz night under the stars, the balcony seats, and the intimate lounge vibe.
Dive Bar Rock Show:
This cheeky little tee from Dimepiece Designs shows off your punk rock attitude without being too harsh. Plus, it’s a great conversation starter if you actually are looking for love.
This faux-studded gray leather jacket from Miss Sixty is totally on trend and is a soft, summery way of pulling off biker chic.
Jeans are must for a gross dive-bar. Don’t try to get too dressed up. You don’t have to look like a slacker though with these trendy, tight mid-rise acid wash skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters.
The Must Have Bag:
Keep it small, girlie, and something you can easily sling across your body like this Betsey Johnson bag. You won’t have to hold on to it while you are being thrown around the pit.
The Killer Shoes:
We know you want a little height, but wearing heels to a show where you will be standing most of the time is super uncomfortable. These boots from 80%20 are a perfect compromise. They hide your toes from being stomped, but add a little height with a secret inside wedge.
