How to Dress for a Concert (Teenage)
Going to a concert is a lot of fun! It's a great way to enjoy your favorite music and spend time with friends. However, you might not be sure what to wear, especially if you aren't a regular concert goer. Putting together your base outfit, tailored for the event you’re attending, then adding accessories to finish the look will ensure you can enjoy your concert and look great doing it.
Picking the Perfect Outfit for the Occasion
Wear comfortable clothes.No matter what kind of concert you’re going to, you will want to be comfortable. If your clothes are too tight, they'll be distracting and hard to dance in. Jeans can be great, but if they're skinny jeans make sure they have some stretch so you can move. Shirts or dresses that restrict your arm movement will make it difficult to dance or move through a crowd. When you try on an outfit, move around in it and see if it's too binding.
Dress for the venue.If you’re going to an outdoor concert, layer to deal with different temperatures. Wear a light jacket or long sleeved shirt over a T-shirt or tank top so you won’t be cold before the concert starts, but can take it off once the show begins and things heat up. If you’ll be in an inside arena, don’t bother with layers, because overheating is going to your first concern. Keep it lightweight.
Wear casual and simple clothes for a rock concert.You don't want to look too polished or formal, so stick with jeans and a T-shirt. A tank top is a good choice too.To avoid looking inexperienced, don’t wear the band’s T-shirt.
Opt for street chic at a Hip Hop concert.Wear baggy pants with T-shirt. Add loose hoodie to complete the look, especially for guys.
Girls who want something with a slimmer profile can wear a crop top and skinny jeans.
Choose a bohemian look for a music festival.Guys can wear shorts and a bright printed T-shirt or casual button down.For girls, a lightweight dress or comfortable romper is a good choice.Keep it light to stay cool, but bring some layers in case you get chilled. A long sleeved button down shirt can be tossed on top of most outfits.
Wear a romantic look for a country concert.Girls can wear a white top or one with tassels. A floral or flowy dress is another good choice.For guys, a plain T-shirt or plaid button down will work.For everyone, denim is appropriate.
Dress to look more polished and cool for a pop concert.For guys, wear a slim shirt, either a nice T-shirt or a button down shirt. Pair it with slim, dark jeans.For girls, jeans with a crop top or sheer blouse look sleek. This is the place to wear sequins.
Wear what you like, ultimately.There really are no rules. You have your own style and should follow that more than anyone else's look. Wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident, and enjoy your night.
Accessorizing to Complete Your Look
Wear comfortable shoes.You’ll be on your feet a lot, and probably dancing. High heels will hurt after a while, and open toed shoes leave your feet vulnerable to being stepped on. Pick flat, sturdy shoes that will keep your feet safe and pain-free.
- For a rock concert, choose boots, either flat ankle boots or lace-up combat style. Sneakers will also work.
- Wear athletic shoes for a hip hop concert. They're super comfortable and ideal for the look.
- Pick shoes that can handle outdoor surfaces for a music festival. Wear sneakers or flat boots.
- Choose cowboy boots for country concerts. Just make sure they're flat and comfortable. Sneakers would work here also.
- For a pop concert, girls can complete their polished look by wearing sleek flats or ankle boots. Guys should wear lace-up shoes that are just a little more formal than sneakers.
Wear simple jewelry.Chunky or heavy styles will be uncomfortable when you’re dancing in close quarters, and could even hurt people if you accidentally hit someone! Opt for smaller pieces, and softer materials, like cloth or leather.
Keep your hands free.If you usually carry a purse or a bag, leave it at home. You want your hands to be free, so keep a few essentials in a crossbody bag, or carry what you need in your pockets. All you really need is your I.D., a phone, and some money.

- When driving home from a concert be careful, It's a good idea to have someone with you, and to avoid back roads. Have a charged phone in case of emergency.
