The A-Z Rock Concert Dress Guide

Most people confuse a rock concert to be a venue where you can pass off freaky pieces of clothing as trends. The truth, however, is that you don’t have to wear weird and strange looking clothes to show that you understand rock or to feel like you fit in. In fact, you could sport your average jeans and tee or formal trousers and a casual shirt and feel like you belong. Here are a few tips to help you nail your next rock performance outing…




1. Be Yourself:

Yes, the most important thing to remember while attending a rock concert is to not get carried away with the high levels of energy and not try too hard, or rather not try to fit in at all. Be yourself and enjoy the moment.




If anything, you could make an effort to learn more about the artists whose performance you are about to witness, so that you identify with their songs and style. If you are most comfortable in denims or formal pants, by all means wear that. You could team them with a slim tee with a message across it, for an edgy look. But if you are keen on experimenting with shredded tees and low rise jeans, this is the place to do that as well. At the end of the day, it’s imperative that you wear clothes that make you feel at ease and help put you in the right frame of mind to enjoy the music all around you.




2. Best Bets:

You can’t go wrong with T-shirts with slogans or doodles on them, funky shoes, the slim tie worn loosely over a tee while attending a rock concert. Shorts are also a common sighting at rock concerts. Since the ambience can turn stuffy, with so many people around, shorts is actually a good idea. Pick a pair in solids colours for a neutral effect. If you’d like to take it a notch higher, beach shorts are the way to go. When it comes to footwear, canvas shoes, keds and even flip flops and open toes footwear will keep you comfortable through the evening.

3. Ape Your Idol:

If you are a die-hard fan of particular artist and you know that you will be attending his or her performance, you could dress up in their signature style, if they have one. Or buy T-shirts that have their band name or logos on them as a mark of your support for them. Most artists like to have a signature style… it could be something as simple as wearing coloured frames, or a particular type of footwear or t-shirt. Watch closely and follow suit.
