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:

The T-Shirt:

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.

The Jacket:

This faux-studded gray leather jacket from Miss Sixty is totally on trend and is a soft, summery way of pulling off biker chic.

The Jeans:

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.

The Pop Show

The T-Shirt:

This tunic-length loose-fitting t-shirt from Numph is both fun and functional. The sleeves are nice and short for those sweaty moments on the dance-floor and the vibrant lioness will make you feel like a wild, feral animal.

The Jacket:

Chartreuse is the color of the moment and this gorgeous silk jacket from Chaser is the perfect way to class up your outfit without wearing a heavy cover up on mildly chilly spring nights.

The Jeans:

These sexy jeans from J Brand are skin-tight, but they also have stretch (for those down low dance moves) and are dark (in case you spill your drink on them doing aforementioned dance moves.)

The Must-Have Bag:

Bag it up with this fun disco cross-body bag from Forever 21.

The Killer Shoes:

We know you may want to look like a diva, but keep your heel low enough so that you can actually dance (and aren’t stumbling out of the venue). These cute little kitten heels from Heart of Darkness have a slingback (stays on your foot), small heels (so you aren’t falling), and adorable fringe to make give your feet extra action.

The Jazz Concert Under The Stars:

The T-Shirt:

Get the elegant look of a simple gray t-shirt rocking a trendy edge with this burn-out insert tee from David Learner.

The Jacket:

This Michael Stars linen military jacket is the perfect way to beat the chill without a jacket that is too bulky. Plus, there are tons of pockets to hold all your ticket stubs, programs, and your wine bottle opener.

The Jeans:

These wide-legged jeans from Hudson are equally comfortable, classy, stunning, and practical. The fit is lose enough for easy sitting and the wash is dark enough to hide any stains from sitting on the grass.

The Must-Have Bag:

With all that dark color, you are going to want a bag that pops. It will also need to have enough room to hold a fair amount of stuff (sandwiches and wine, anyone?) and be in a material that won’t get ruined from being damp like this on-trend orange fabric bag from Mario Valentino.

The Killer Shoes:

You’ll actually get to sit down so take advantage of that by wearing fun, flirty heels! Follow the orange theme with these cozy, yet gorgeous suede espadrilles from Nordstrom.

Trendy, Upscale Venue

The T-Shirt:

A funky t-shirt can look refined if all the other elements of the outfit are in place. This t-shirt by Cheeseburglar has that striped Parisian flair, a sophisticated fitted v-neck, and a touch of whimsy with an embroidered cheese wedge.

The Jacket:

If you want to look ultra-elegant, but still a little edgy, this cool Jagger tuxedo blazer from Plastic Island is fierce, but refined.

The Jeans:

Behold the wonder of black stretch velvet jeans like these from Rock & Republic. The fabric and cut is comfortable, while the velvet makes the jeans look like a super classy pair of trousers–without the overwhelming look of formal wear.
