It’s concert season in the UAE, with impending performances from The Weeknd, Post Malone, Sam Smith, Guns ‘N Roses, and more megawatt acts to look forward to in the coming weeks. Besides preparing for the festive season, getting ready for a concert is high on our list of things to buy new outfits for. However, the question of what to wear to a concert is a bit trickier than what to wear to a holiday event, especially given the myriad of factors to consider, from weather to seating – or standing, if that’s the case.
In order to err on the side of caution, we’re building our wardrobes on the foundation of comfort, with walkable shoes as the bedrock of each look. We also considered styles for different tastes and needs, with cool pieces for the street-style crowd and polished items for those of us who have to head to the show straight from work. Considered from all angles, this shoppable guide is all you’ll need for the concerts coming up – backstage passes not included.
If you’re aiming for more of a classic concert-goer look, a slick leather jacket, denim, and boots make for a truly head-turning trio.
If you’re forced to head to the concert straight from work, a simple, stylish, and comfortable ensemble like this will transition effortlessly.
Streetwise threads are required for concerts like Post Malone – or anywhere else the under-30 crowd will be out in full force, for that matter. Embrace the opportunity to blend in with the cool kids in a regional label like Les Benjamins accented with trendy pieces like bike shorts and ugly sneakers.
The new uniform of cool girls everywhere is a simple printed dress – preferably one from popular mid-range brands like Ganni, Self-Portrait, and Reformation – with minimalist sneakers. It couldn’t be easier to put together. In fact, we’re willing to bet that you’ll find yourself living in this look long after the concert has faded into memory.
Co-ords make getting dressed for a concert ultra-easy, especially when they come in a fun print that reflects the mood of the event. Pile on a few stylish accessories, and you’re ready to stand out when it’s time to start snapping group selfies.
