What To Wear To A Concert For Guys

When you go to a concert, it goes without saying: you’re there to have fun. You don’t want to have to think about what you’re wearing, or how good you look, or anything remotely related to any of that. But you should dress occasion-appropriate so you can feel as comfortable as possible. And that can be a bigger challenge for guys than they’d like to admit. That’s why we’ve put together a brief guide on what to wear to a concert for guys.

The Laid-Back Approach: Keeping it Casual

As it is with any clothes, what you wear to a concert is dependent on the event itself. Is it a formal concert featuring a classical violinist, or is it an outdoor concert featuring a slate of relatively unknown rock bands? The context will have a dramatic effect on what you wear.

If you need to keep things casual, then you don’t have to think too hard here. You can just focus on what you find most comfortable and enjoy the heck out of it. Here are some suggestions to help:

  • High Performance Shorts. These Windjammer Hybrid shorts in Navy are a great example of casual shorts you can wear to an outdoor concert. Why the focus on performance? This isn’t an athletic event, after all. But the 92% polyester, 8% spandex combination here is ideal for keeping comfortable if you were to sit out on a blanket or do a lot of walking. And at an outdoor concert, either one is a distinct possibility.
  • Button Down Short-Sleeve. Yes, you can go for an occasion-appropriate T-shirt. But if you want to liven things up a little without going too dressy, you can always opt for a Summer Oxford Short Sleeve shirt in Blue. Pair this with fun accessories like sunglasses, a hat, and bracelets to really keep it casual.
  • T-Shirt. And if you want an even more casual option, consider this Negative Slub Crew Neck shirt.

Although the laid-back approach will work for a wide variety of music festivals and concerts, what if you need something that’s a little more appropriate for a formal setting indoors? We have a few tips.

Staying Formal at the Concert

If your concert is a sit-down affair, you’ll be expected to dress nicely, even if you don’t have to segue into formal wear:
