A few weeks back I went to see the Lady Antebellum Take Me Downtown Tour at the Canadian Molson Ampitheatre with Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes.
There was a chance of rain, it was a hot day but supposed to cool down at night and we had seats that weren’t covered.. so what to wear was a conundrum.
TIPS ON WHAT TO WEAR
For country concerts, you want to elude a very carefree, laidback summer vibe, and the best way to do that is with floral sundresses, lacey rompers, touches of leather, dresses that are flowy, fun, and give a little Sounthern hint to your look. All of these are great to match with a cute pair of cowgirl boots too!
I decided not to get too country with wearing cowboy boots this time, but I did wear some boots. I paired this with a skirt and a loose sparkly tee. I brought layers in my cross-body bag (tights, a denim jacket & a waterproof shell). Done! Ready for ANY weather that may come.
For hair, you can curl it, braid it or if you are not feeling like doing anything (like I did), go with a natural wave and if your hair is too straight.. add in some sea salt spray to give you texture. Voila!
ANOTHER CONCERT, ANOTHER FUN TIME
I was lucky enough to score VIP floor tickets (row 10!) thanks to an awesome friend of mine, to see Shania Twain Rock this Country Tour. This was a last-minute, rush from meetings, drop-my stuff-off-and-head-to-the-bus-to-make-it-just-in-time, kind of concert.
What to do in a time-crunch situation?
- Grab your travel bag for makeup essentials (and makeup wipes)
- A toothbrush
- Clean panties
- Dry shampoo
- A coat & scarf to layer
- Make a mad dash out the door!
I made it in time to get the the Air Canada Center, grab a drink and a seat and have about 5 minutes of downtime before the show began.
What did I Wear? A cute flower cobalt A-line T-Shirt dress with lace t-shirt sleeves, and leather cutout, lace-up sandals.. again with a packed-to-the-brim cross-body purse.
The whole vibe at these concerts is to feel good, and have a good time. Enjoy it and if you have any other questions… shoot!
I’d love to hear how you get ready for a country music concert.
