Fashion Cents: What to Wear to a Summer Concert

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

--By Kimberly Turner

Summertime! My favorite time of the year. Cookouts, festivals and concerts. I know the music scene happens all year but it seems like there is so much more to do in when it's hot. But of course, keep in mind, I live in Chicago so in the wintertime, we rarely want to come out of the house. So this year the artists are as varied as Bon Jovi to BBD and so are the venues from outdoor stadiums to indoor intimate venues. So what to wear so you look hot and cool? Three things you should know:

1. The venue where you are going. Dressing for the venue is key.

2. If you have assigned seating or if it is standing room only. Makes a difference in what you would wear.

3. How far you have to walk. Stomping a mile to a concert in five inch heels will make for a horrible night.
Now watch the video for some suggestions on what to wear. On to the show...
