What to wear to an outdoor bar, or any other place where you might be outside in the winter:
- Be prepared for snow, sleet, rain, and/or other inclement weather. If you’re not sure what you’re in for, dress in layers.
- Wear boots that are sturdy enough to handle snow and ice, but not too heavy or clunky so that they slow you down as you run from a flying snowball or dodge a puddle of slush.
- Wear a hat with a brim so your head doesn’t get cold when it’s windy outside—and because it looks cute!
- Wear gloves (or mittens) so that your hands are warm enough to hold onto hot cocoa—and because they look cute!
- Wear scarves—they’ll keep your neck warm while also adding some color to your outfit!
What to wear to an outdoor bar
When it’s time to go out on the town, you have to look your best. But sometimes that means dressing for a night out in a way that’s not as easy as it sounds.
If you’re headed to an outdoor bar, for example, you might be wondering what you should wear. It’s not like there are rules—but there are guidelines! And if you follow them, you’ll be able to show up in style and still feel comfortable enough to enjoy yourself all night long.
As a professional, you’ve probably got a pretty solid idea of what to wear to work every day. But what about when you want to head out for drinks after work?
It can be tough to know what’s appropriate for an outdoor bar—and if it’s too cold or windy, you might end up leaving your new outfit on the hanger. That’s why we’re here: to help you decide what looks good and keeps you warm, so you can enjoy the night!
When you’re going out for drinks with friends, you can’t always predict what the weather will be like. But that doesn’t mean you should let your outfit choice be dictated by the elements.
If you want to stay warm while still looking cute, these tips are for you:
1) Layer up—but not too much! You don’t want to overdo it on the layers or else you’ll look like a marshmallow.
2) Choose colors that reflect light and keep you warm, like reds and oranges. You can also try wearing black if your coat is warm enough.
3) Dress up your outfit with a statement scarf or hat that accents your outfit without covering it up entirely.
If you’re looking to go out to an outdoor bar on a warm summer night, you’ll need to dress the part. Thankfully, it’s not hard to find what works best for your body type and style.
You know, I love going to concerts.
But one thing that always stresses me out is what to wear.
When you’re in a large crowd, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle—and I don’t want to be the person who shows up in jeans and a t-shirt, only to realize everyone else is wearing formalwear! But on the other hand, if I go all out with my outfit and it rains or gets cold, then what?
I’ve put together this guide for outdoor concerts so that no matter what happens at your next concert experience, you’ll be prepared for anything.
The summer concert season is upon us, and you know what that means: it’s time to pack your bags and head out to an outdoor venue. Whether you’re attending a festival or seeing one of your favorite bands in an open field, you’ll need to know what to wear so that you can stay cool, comfortable, and stylish all at once!
So what should be on your checklist? First off, think about the weather. Is it going to be hot out? Is it going to be rainy? If so, try to bring some water with you—it will help keep you hydrated while also keeping your skin moisturized with a little SPF.
Next up are shoes. You want something durable enough for the dirt and grass (or gravel) but also comfy enough that they won’t make your feet sore by the end of the night.
Finally, think about accessories—you don’t want anything too heavy or bulky because it could get in the way of dancing (or worse: get lost). But if you can find something light that adds just enough color without being distracting, then go for it!
It’s finally here! You’ve been waiting for months, and now it’s almost time to go. You’ve been waiting all year for this concert, and it’s finally here—but what are you going to wear?
If it’s cool outside, consider wearing one of your favorite stylish tees (or a band tee) with a bomber jacket. Bomber jackets are super stylish and can take any casual outfit up a notch. This weatherproof jacket is lightweight, so it won’t be too heavy for an outdoor show.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A CONCERT: 15 ROCKIN’ OUTFIT IDEAS
Half the fun of attending a live concert is picking out what to wear, right? You want to stand out in a sea of fans but still be comfortable enough to dance your butt off all night long. Need a bit of inspiration? Check out these 15 ideas for what to wear to a concert. Rock on!
Bodycon Skirt + Tee + Studded Heels
Do you love getting dressed up for events but still want to look like you just threw on an amazing outfit? Julie of Sincerely, Jules absolutely killed it with this gray bodycon skirt. The studded heels add a bit of bling to dress it up. Swap out the denim for a leather jacket for extra edge, or swap a basic tee for a sheer top.
Leather Overalls + Biker Boots
Looking for something super-trendy with a bit of edge? Give a pair of leather shortalls a go. If you’re daring like Chiara of The Blonde Salad, wear a sporty white bra or crop top underneath and team with a funky pair of shoes. We love sneakers or loafers—cute and, more importantly, comfy.
Flowy Dress + Western-Inspired Ankle Boots
If Jack Johnson ever decides to leave his island home again, we know what we’ll be wearing. A simple flowy dress is the easiest way to be comfortable and stylish at a summer concert. We love how Kimberly of Eat Sleep Wear juxtaposed her breezy boho dress with Western-inspired booties. Add a floppy hat and sunglasses for outdoor summer days.
Slit Skirt + Simple Tank + Sandals
A simple outfit like this is perfect for outdoor music festivals in the summer. Trine’s breezy skirt keeps her covered yet cool, and a simple top dresses down the look for an effortless vibe. Add a strappy pair of sandals or metallic slip-ons, and don’t forget your carryall bag (with lots of sunscreen!).
Lace Romper + Cowboy Boots
No country-show look is complete without a trusty pair of cowboy boots. We love the way Aimee of Song of Style gave hers a sweet vibe by pairing them with a lace romper. A lightweight denim jacket or chambray shirt is perfect for when the sun sets and the bass—er, temperature—drops.
We fell in love with the sporty trend that ruled summer 2014, and, lucky for us, it translates into the perfect outfit for a concert. The white-on-white-on-white of Christina of Trop Rouge’s ensemble is chic. Keep your look monochromatic, and add a pop of color with accessories.
Graphic Sweatshirt + Red Lips
A graphic sweatshirt and a well-fitted pair of jeans make a simple and effortless look for any concert. Channel Sheryl of Walk in Wonderland adds extra sass with a bold red lip. Swap the heeled booties for sneakers for more comfort (though the booties look totally BA).
Graphic Dress + Denim Jacket + Fedora
Dressing up for a concert is a great time to play with colors and patterns. The striking red-and-black pattern on Saray’s shift dress stands out in a crowd. Swipe on some graphic liquid eyeliner, and toss on a structured wide-brimmed hat for a cool yet effortless vibe. Chunky booties are the perfect finishing touch (plus your feet will be safe when you venture into the mosh pit).
Black on Black on Black
An all-black ensemble is a no-brainer when it comes to concert attire. Swap out the usual black pants and black top for a black midi dress and leather booties. A leather jacket toughens it up a bit. Bonus points if yours is customized like Denielle’s of We Wore What. Now that’s badass.
Patterned Pants + Loose Top
Looking for something comfy yet stylish to wear to a concert? We’re obsessed with these loose cotton pants and this silky top on Lucy of Fashion Me Now. Toss a blazer over top for a more refined look, or wear the duo as is to a concert on the beach.
Circle Skirt + Slit Top
A circle skirt and a comfy top is our favorite go-to outfit for a summer concert. Sarah of Framboise Fashion paired her ensemble with heels, but we think a white pair of sneaks would do the trick too. Whether you’re sitting on the green taking in the summer tunes or dancing your ass off in a sweaty arena, this outfit is sure to steal the show.
Boyfriend Jeans + White Tee + Sneakers
Grunge is at the apex of a huge comeback, and what better venue than a concert to show your love for the ’90s? Whether you groove to Garbage or swoon at the voice of Jeff Mangum, you can’t go wrong with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a simple white top. Toss on a chain-link bag and animal-print sneakers to complete the look.
Cutoffs + Kimono
Cutoffs are a summer music festival staple—no news there. This year, up your style game with a floor-length floral kimono. Look for one with pops of color and small details like fringed hems. Team with a pair of moto booties for all-day comfort in style.
Floral Dress + Tough Boots
A floral dress teamed with tough boots is part girly, part grunge. We love the skater cut of Rumi Neely’s ’90s floral dress. Add an oversized and distressed denim jacket to keep you warm in the cool nighttime breeze. Now can we see the Coachella lineup, please?
Leather Skirt + Sweatshirt + Beanie
If Kylie Jenner is your style idol, you’ll love this look (plus Kanye would totally approve, we think). Start with a leather circle skirt, and then add either a sweatshirt or an oversize graphic tee—the sportier the better—up top. Finish with a wordy beanie and high-top sneaks for a flirty and sassy concert outfit.
