Style files: What to wear to a concert

The Global Citizen Fest was held a few weeks ago but we are (somehow) still hungover on Chris Martin. In order to distract ourselves from post-concert trauma, and of course keeping in mind that there are more such music festivals to conquer, we’ve come up a few fail-safe styling options. If you’re keen on figuring out what to wear to a music concert, scroll down.

Vintage Tees and Jeans 

The good thing about this modish combination is that it never ceases to go out of fashion, especially if you are at a rock concert and aim to portray your love for your favourite band.  If aren’t rooting for any band in particular, a quirky graphic t-shirt is a great alternative.



Leather and Lace

Nothing is sexier than a biker jacket paired with a lace camisole or dress, leather and lace being the approved trend this fall. Feeling bold?  Make it a head to toe black look with knee high boots and you are good to go. Don’t forget the scarlet lip colour though!



Bomber Jacket

A bomber jacket is just the thing you need since its December and some of us might be headed towards colder climes. Pair an embroidered bomber jacket with your denim or your overalls for an effortless look that is chic too.



Bohemia never stops to amaze and inspire us, so if you are wondering what might be the best place to channel your bohemian vibes, it’s this. Go for a maxi or short dress with details of winter florals , pair it with an embellished collar to complete your look.


Hair, accessories and makeup

Free flowing hair makes a great case for jewellery (think headbands). You might feel the need to tie your hair after a while, which is why scarves as headbands are always a go-to. Alternatively, you can tie your hair in a top knot bun and adorn it with an intricate hair comb or bright hair tie. If you are feeling fancy, uplift your ponytail game with a set of bobby pins.

Keep a subtle yet smart approach to makeup; a detailed winged eyeliner, a bright lip colour and a statement accessory will not only be cool but also fuss free. Opt for an exquisite choker or a distinct bracelet rather than flaunting numerous pieces of jewellery in one go.





As much as you might like wearing heels just about everywhere, here’s an eye opener: heels at a music fest are a bad idea. Since you will be on your feet most of your time (read all of your time), it would be wise to make a choice between your favourite boots, sneakers or flats.

So now you know the golden rule: ALWAYS wear flats!
