10 Trends Everyone Will Wear to Concerts From Now On

If you've been to any type of concert at any point over the past decade, you probably know that the people watching has become almost as entertaining as the musical performance, as people really put effort into what they wear to the event. Just look at Coachella, which has become as much about fashion as it is about music, like it or not. 

Now that the New Year (and decade) is in full swing, we're thinking ahead to how concert style will evolve, and we're starting by highlighting the new trends that will inevitably be worn by many a concertgoer in the near future. We mulled through all of the current trends and landed on 10 that are ripe for concert attending, so whether you're currently a proud ticket holder to the upcoming Billie Eilish or Harry Styles tours, one of the many music festivals, or a local act, at least one of these 10 trends is bound to be your ticket to concert outfit success.

Keep scrolling to shop the trends you'll soon see at every concert.

Orange

Orange is the bold color currently taking the fashion world by storm (for lack of a better expression), and it just so happens to be perfect for standing out among a sea of concertgoers.

Platform Shoes

The '70s are back and so are the platform shoes that came along with them. While this shoe trend is pretty comfortable, we'd avoid wearing platforms to an outdoor concert or one where you'll be standing for hours.

Bra Tops

Lingerie-inspired looks were all over the S/S 20 runways, and while bra tops might not be the best choice for, say, the office, they're certainly a fun option for a night out at a concert.

Netting

Netted pieces might not be functional, but they're certainly cool enough to wear to a music festival. Try layering this & Other Stories dress over a swimsuit, jeans, or a slip dress.

Vests

A vest is a great way to add some personality to your outfit, and they come in many forms, from utility to crochet to tailored. They're cooler than ever this season.

Baseball Caps

Baseball caps are poised to be one of S/S 20's biggest accessory trends. Bonus: There are tons of affordable options on the market. (And they're great for shielding your face from the sun at outdoor concerts.)

Tube Tops

Everything from the '90s is new again, including tube tops. While Emily Ratajkowski's is quite ornate, a simple tube top still makes a big impact no matter what it's paired with.

Crochet

Crochet is an obvious choice for music festivals but black crochet, in particular, can also look night out–worthy.

Low-Rise Pants

While still controversial, low-rise trousers have been making a comeback. Just follow Bella Hadid's lead and opt or a trouser-style pair that's slouchy as opposed to tight.
