After the slew of shows we’ve been to lately (Blood Orange, Sbtrkt, Banks, Ivory Deville) I’ve realized there really is an art to concert going attire. Im not claiming to be an expert, but have been to enough to hold my own, and aim to share a few tips to make your experience easier. The main goal is comfort, body temperature control, easy access, and of course, style. The number one tip that I’ve found helpful is a small purse…messenger style. It sucks to be dancing around with a huge bag on your hip, and it’s not very considerate of your fellow show goers (I’m probably annoying enough being THAT GIRL who is dancing uncontrollably, hands over head for the entire night). This fringed Cleobella number does the trick, and the black leather totally overlaps into everday wear. While were on the subject of fringe, these suede Seychelles booties are comfortable enough to dance all night in, and at $150, they don’t break the bank. I’m loving a crop top layered over a body chain…thanks for that idea Bey. Add a 90’s inspired collar for an eclectic accessorized look. Pile on the rings, especially this set from House of Harlow, and to keep the pops of silver going finish with Nars metallic nail polish. Crimp-free hairties are a must for a ponytail option, plus they and add to wrist stacks when not in use. These python print ties that I found at Nordstrom are rad. As far as touchup essentials, go with what fits in your purse. A few key items like face refresher spray (try the mini size from MAC…they now have mini sized everything!!!), eyeliner, and the obligatory Sin-Min horchata lipspread (has a natural plumper which makes your lips full and soft) are minimal but keep you looking fresh.  When in doubt choose most anything with fringe or distressed detailing and you’ll be good to go.
