A breezy OTS top, black skinnies, and flats are a fail-proof choice.

Fashion Agony 

Pretty much anything in your closet becomes concert-appropriate with sneakers, including a girly maxi dress. Need a boost? Try a pair of platform kicks, like these.

Lady Addict 

Cute flat sandals + ruffled pieces = perfection.

Style MBA

Take a cue from Kate Bosworth and pair a short shirtdress with a cute jacket (denim will work fine!) and a pair of comfy ankle boots.

Pregnant girls can go see concerts too! Keep it comfy with layered basics.

A Mama in Love

Cool matching sets were practically made for concert culture. (This one's by Lovers and Friends—get it here!)

Happily Grey

Even if Coachella passed you by, this boho look is serious inspo for any summer concert.

Nothing says cool, casual, and classic like an oversized white shirt—tied at the waist!—and your favorite pair of jeans. If it's a daytime show outside, add flats. At a nighttime arena? Dress it up with low-heeled mules.

Sylvie Mus 

A little expected, but a vintage tee paired with leather shorts and boots are classics for a reason.

We Wore What

No need to stick to denim—wide cropped pants look cool with everything from frilly blouses to basic tanks.

Sincerely Jules 

So cool: wide-legged pants, a strapless top, and some retro specs.
