Excited to see your favorite band perform live? Bought the tickets, planned everything, want to look cool and noticeable among the crowd, but don't know what to wear? Well, let me help you with that. First, you need to know that there are different outfits that will complement different genres of music. You do not want to turn up in a country style dress for a rock concert! You also have to keep in mind the venue (indoor or outdoor) and the seating arrangement (assigned seats or standing).
For Women
sneakers for comfort
★There are a lot of choices for these type of concerts for the ladies. First thing to start with is always the footwear. Since you will be on your feet most of the time, you need to wear comfortable shoes. Ditch the heels altogether, as they won't be comfortable at all, and you might end up stepping on someone too. Instead, go for cute sneakers in bright colors. You can even wear flat boots. Open toe shoes and flip flops are a definite no-no.
dress for pop
★Well-fitted denims are absolutely perfect for any kind of concert (of course not a classical!). Pair it up with a cute girlie top in colorful shades. You can also wear a loose-fitting white shirt and a bright, hued tank underneath it. A little bit of layering is fine. Don't go overboard, as it will be hot out there. Wear a dress or a skirt, fitted denim skirts or pretty floral shirt dresses are cool. Add a cool vest for a trendy look.
sling bag
★Don't wear long chains or necklaces. Accessorize with statement earrings or a nice cuff bracelet. Carry a sling bag to keep all your belongings safe, like your cell phone, money, and makeup.
For Men
men clothing
★T-shirts and denim work well for a concert. You can wear casual trousers as well. Layer your outfit by wearing a white tee under a striped or checked shirt. Team it up with a pair of Converse shoes. If you want to look different, try bright, hued shoes. Concerts are forgiving and a great place to experiment.
►Hip Hop / Rap
For Women
hip hop clothing
★A pair of loose, baggy jeans is ideal for any hip hop or rap concert. Pair it with a fitted top or tanks. Wear an unbuttoned shirt over it. If loose is not your style, you can definitely try fitted jeans in bright colors, and team that with a loose off-shoulder top. Remember, you are not opting for the feminine look here.
ballet shoes
★Shoes, as usual should be comfortable. Sneakers are perfect at such times. You can wear ballet flats in vibrant colors. Avoid wearing flip-flops and heels.
hoop earrings
★For hip hop party you can accessorize with long, layered chains and hoop earrings.
For Men

★Wear loose (but not low) denims with a cool T-shirt. You can even wear an unbuttoned shirt. Hoodie jackets will work well with this outfit. Guys can accessorize with chains and rings. Complete the look with a baseball cap.
►Rock / Metal
For Women
rock party clothes
★For these concerts, think 'rock chic'. Wear skintight jeans in different washes. Distressed and torn works well here. Do not wear leather pants, as it will be very hot, and leather will make you feel very uncomfortable. Shorts are good, as long as they are not too short. Black would be the perfect color to go for at this time. For tops, wear digital prints with skulls, or go for plain black. Carry a jacket if the concert is outdoors.
romper boots
★Romper-style boots will add to the rock chic look.
neon sneakers
★Sneakers in neon colors will go well for a rock party.
★Keep the makeup and accessories minimal. Tying your hair would be a good idea, as it tends to become very hot and sweaty in a big crowd.
For Men

★Guys can opt for slim cut jeans with T-shirt or shirts. Wearing a rock 'n' roll emblem T-shirt in black with a leather jacket is a good option. Shoes can be regular Converse.
For Women
clothing for classical party
★Classical concerts are very different to other concerts. They are usually indoors and there is a well-planned seating arrangement in place. For these types of concerts, you have to dress a bit formally. Avoid loud colors, and of course denims are a big no-no. Wear a dress that is knee-length, or a long skirt with a blouse in a lighter shade. You can wear a blazer, since the show will be quite formal.
★Heels and strappy sandals are the perfect footwear.
simple accessories
simple earrings
★A small clutch and simple jewelry will complete the look.
For Men

★Men can wear a light suit or blazer with a formal shirt. For a more casual look, wear a T-shirt underneath a blazer, with blue jeans. Avoid distressed or torn denims. Wear a pair of leather shoes in black or brown.
For Women
country party clothing
★Denim and leather are the fabrics to go for in country outfits. Wear a pair of denim jeans, a skirt, or shorts with a cute shirt. Knotted shirts with denims looks good too. A baby doll dress with a cardigan, or a sleeveless leather jacket will give you the ultimate country feel.
cowboy boots
★Cowboy boots are the ones you should go for. Don't wear too heavy or thigh-high boots. Ankle-length or calf-length boots, or even gladiator sandals (without heels) go well with the country theme.
hat as an accessories
★For accessories, you can wear a leather belt in tan or burnt orange with a big buckle. Hats work well too, but just make sure they are not so big that you are blocking other people's view.
For Men

★For guys, a regular fitting pair of jeans with a button-down plaid shirt works well. Wear a denim or leather jacket if the concert is outdoors. For footwear, you can opt for cowboy boots or dress boots. Don't forget to wear a belt with a big buckle, although, skip the extremely shiny ones. Cowboy hats are optional.
Finally, one word of advice. In the end, choose an outfit that is comfortable and just have fun.
