What To Wear For A Concert

At Never Fully Dressed we are regular gig-goers and love a night out at a concert, you may have seen our recent trip to watch Lizzo at the O2. We had such a blast! 

Choosing what to wear when you attend music events can be pretty tricky, especially when you are navigating wanting to look amazing and feel comfortable. 

So we have put together the ultimate guide on what to wear for a concert for women, a carefully curated guide designed to help you style your perfect gig-going outfit.

Understanding the Concert Venue

When planning your perfect concert attire, take a moment to consider the venue. 

The location significantly impacts your outfit choice. Let's break down how to dress for different concert settings:

Open-Air Concerts

Outdoor concerts are a breath of fresh air but can be a bit unpredictable weather-wise. 

Here's your cue to opt for layers. A stylish yet comfortable top paired with jeans or shorts can be your base layer. 

A lightweight jacket, cardigan, or even an oversized shirt can serve as an additional layer.

Remember to include a few practical accessories in your concert ensemble. A crossbody bag to keep your essentials close, a stylish hat for shade, and don't forget those sunglasses if the concert is during the day!

Indoor Concerts

If the concert is indoors, it might allow for a more polished outfit without worrying about weather changes.

 However, comfort is still king since you might be on your feet for a long time.

A relaxed, stylish blouse paired with tailored pants or a trendy midi skirt creates a fashionable yet practical outfit. 

Alternatively, a comfortable, chic dress could also be a fantastic choice. Balance the look with a pair of comfortable block heels or fashionable flats.

When it comes to accessories, less is more for indoor concerts. Opt for a small, chic clutch or a minimalist crossbody bag. 

Simple, elegant jewellery can add the perfect finishing touch to your concert attire.

Choosing Your Concert Outfit

Deciding what to wear to a concert can be as exciting as the event itself! 

Whether you're planning to wear a rock concert out, looking to stylishly bask in the soulful strains of a jazz ensemble, or bounce along to a lively pop concert, we've got your concert fashion covered.


While band tees are a staple at concerts, there's plenty of room for creativity. Why not switch it up a bit? 

Consider a flirty crop top, a boho-inspired blouse, or even a sleek bodysuit. These can be as trendy and comfortable as your beloved band tee. 

Prioritise breathable materials like cotton for comfort, especially at crowded or outdoor concerts.


As for bottoms, comfortable jeans or shorts are your safe bet, but feel free to strut your style. 

Want to amp up your look? Try a faux leather mini skirt or flared pants for a touch of vintage chic. 

Whatever you choose, make sure it allows you to move freely — because concerts are all about grooving to the rhythm!

Dresses and Jumpsuits

Now, let's talk dresses and jumpsuits. 

In our opinion, they are the best choice for concerts, especially for indoor venues or music festivals.

 An airy maxi dress offers comfort and style, while a bold, printed jumpsuit makes a cool statement. 

But remember, choose practical lengths and comfortable fabrics to avoid any potential wardrobe malfunctions!

Footwear Choices

Now, onto the all-important topic of footwear. 

Picking the right shoes for a concert can make or break your experience. 

Always remember, comfort is paramount, as you'll likely be on your feet dancing and standing for most of the event.


Sneakers are the unsung heroes of concert footwear. They're not just comfortable, as if you choose the right pair they're also high on style. 

From basic white sneakers to funky printed ones, they're perfect for all that foot-tapping and dancing you'll be doing.


A chic pair of boots can add an instant edge to your concert ensemble. 

Consider comfortable ankle boots or a pair of rugged combat boots for that cool rockstar vibe. But let's save those towering stilettos for another night, shall we? 

Concerts are all about having a great time without having to worry about sore feet!

Remember, whatever your style or the concert genre, the best outfit is one where you can comfortably enjoy the music while feeling confident and stylish. 

So, tune into your personal style and have a fabulous concert experience!

Accessorising Your Concert Look

Alright, your concert outfit is almost complete, but let's not forget the cherry on top - accessories! 

While these add a fun element to your look, remember the golden rule of concert going: balancing a cool style with comfort.


The right bag for a concert is one that carries all your essentials without becoming a burden, something like a chic crossbody bag or fanny pack can be an absolute lifesaver. 

They are hands-free, secure, and can often be super stylish. Try and opt for one that complements your outfit but is also practical. 

You’ll need enough room for your phone, keys, wallet, and your physical tickets, if you’re keeping it old school. 



When it comes to jewellery, the key is simplicity. Intricate or large pieces can become uncomfortable or even a hassle in a concert setting if you’re dancing. 

Why not try layering delicate necklaces or wearing small, chic hoops or studs. A cool cuff or a few stacked bracelets can also make a statement. 

Remember to choose pieces that won't get in the way of your concert fun.

Final Thoughts

Congratulations! You're hopefully now equipped with all the style knowledge you need for your next concert. 

Remember, the perfect concert outfit strikes a balance between style, comfort, and practicality.

It reflects your personal style and lets you enjoy the music without any wardrobe worries. 

So get out there and enjoy the rhythm in style! Dance like nobody's watching, sing like you're the star of the show, and, most importantly, enjoy every moment.
