Recently I was asked, “What would you recommend wearing to a concert?“. Though this is a question I do get asked more often than you may expect, it got me thinking. What does one wear to a concert? I recently struggled with this exact situation myself just two weeks ago. I had been counting down the days until the Dance Gavin Dance concert in Memphis (DGD is my fave band, if ya didn’t know). I was beyond excited to rock out, but I was so torn on what to wear. I knew my concert attire wasn’t the hugest deal in the grand scheme of things because I was going for the music, but I wanted to have the perfect outfit for the big day. I tried on several different pieces from my closet, frustrated by the ‘I have nothing to wear!!‘ feeling that we as women sometimes get (even those of us that have an unhealthy collection of clothes and shoes). Picking out an outfit for a concert seems easy initially, but it can actually be pretty tricky (and frustrating)- especially for certain genres. So what did I end up wearing to the post-hardcore concert two Fridays ago? A romper. Simple, easy, comfortable. I paired it with white converse and temporary pink hair dye, and I was out the door & on the road.
I adore rompers for concerts because they are SO versatile. Take this black romper, for example- with cowboy boots and a western necklace, you are ready for any country concert. Throw it on with converse and eyeliner for an edgier show or pair it with booties and a hat for a more indie band. The options are endless. I also feel like a black romper can really work for any season as well. For fall & winter, opt for vests, denim jackets, faux fur coats, and cardis to layer up. For shoes, you can’t go wrong with over the knee boots or suede booties. In the spring & summer, I love simple, lace up sandals and espadrilles. Rompers are easy, which is one reason I just can’t get enough of them.
