Scroll down below to see the what pieces I consider to be essential elements of a "concert ready" look!
1. The Sequin Blazer
Over the years, blazers have become a wardrobe staple for most girls. They are figure-flattering, can be worn with a multitude of outfits and sometimes function as a light jacket in the spring and fall. Sequins are synonymous with fun, parties and happy times, making them a special event staple whether they are on skirts, dresses, handbags or blazers! The marriage between the two staples creates an essential piece for a "concert ready" look. When you are dancing away and getting lost in the music at your favourite concert, the sequin blazer will compliment your shape and look glamorous at the exact same time! Sequin blazers also look great when worn over a concert T-shirt.
2. The Quilted Bag
As you are enjoying yourself while watching your favourite musical artist perform, the last thing you want to do is search through a large, clunky bag as you look for your camera phone because you want to capture the moment for your Instagram page! A small quilted bag is the perfect size and style for a "concert ready" look because it allows you just enough space for your cash, lipstick, keys and phone (and just enough style to make your standout in the crowd).
3. The Shiny Leggings
Depending on the musical genre of the concert that you go to, you may feel inclined to wear loose fitting pants. However, if you want comfort, style and something that does not run the risk of getting trampled on when you are twerking away (jokes!), then I suggest wearing shiny leggings as they are fun, edgy and, somewhat simple, all in one. Shiny leggings also would work well with a loose-fitting concert T-shirt, sequin blazer, quilted bag and the beauty looks below!
4. The Bold Lip
5. The Smoky Eye
Sultry, mysterious and, transformative is what makes the smoky eye a staple for so many women. With the swipe of some dark shadow across your eyelids, you can go from a day look to a "concert ready" look in a few minutes.
When creating your beauty "concert ready" look, I suggest wearing either the bold lip or smoky eye separately and not together as it will look a little too glamorous. As much as I love glamour, sometimes it is best to rein it in a little bit.
