Last night, I had the absolute honour of seeing Nick Carter (yes, from the Backstreet Boys) perform right in front of me. Dead serious; right in front of me – I was second row. He touched my hand; I cried and I died. Although I could go on and on about the concert, Nick Carter and the Backstreet Boys in general, this post is actually about the concert outfit I chose. I’ll leave my massive upload of pictures and teenie-bopper ranting for another blog post.
As you can imagine, it’s been a while since I’ve been to a pop concert. Believe it or not but I don’t have $400 to dish out on Bieber tickets, and well, he’s not the Backstreet Boys. The good news is, considering the genre of the music, any “popular” fashion lookbook or trendy outfits can be worn to a pop concert. A basic tee and jeans are standard.
But me? I am not standard.
Since I write from home as a freelance writer, I don’t go out as much as I like. So when I go out, I go out! Seriously, I wear track pants and a tee on a regular basis with a bun plopped on my head So, I wanted to give myself an excuse to A) shop and B) not look like a homeless person and C) create a fabulous concert lookbook.
And this is how I picked my concert outfit for this lookbook!
Have a Concert Outfit Idea in Mind
The secret to shopping for an outfit last minute is to have an idea of what you want to wear already in mind. I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable with gold accents, preferably to be worn with my gold and black Coach high tops.
Be Open to Changing your Concert Outfit
With that said, be willing to wear the complete opposite. You can’t predict what stores are going to have in stock, and in your size so be prepared to change your outfit as needed. I came across a to-die-for pair of Jessica Simpson shoes, which instantly changed up my style game for the day.
Choose a Fashion Accent Colour to Bring it Together
I knew gold was going to be my accent colour. Although my shoes were being changed up, I knew that my entire ensemble had to die together with gold. I had the option of swapping out the gold accessories with feather bohemian accessories because of my new shoes, but I decided to stick with what I already had in mind.
It doesn’t matter what you wear, who you wear, or how you wear your fashion. Even if you’re wearing a basic tee, jeans and flats, it comes down to your confidence. So, whatever you wear to your next concert, kill it; love it; rock it; own it. That’s really the only fashion advice you need on what to wear to a pop concert.
