Rock Concert Outfits Ideas For Women: Whether you are going to your first rock concert or you are the #groupiegoals chick, the importance of a great outfit can never be denied. To truly rock your outfit and for the right selection, there are a number of factors that you have to keep in mind ranging from the venue to the timings and lastly the weather conditions.
Fashion and trends are changing all the time, and even though you will think graphic tee and shorts are the major popular choice, suddenly, you will find that 1980’s fashion trends are now making a strong comeback. So, for keeping up with major trends, we have collected a vast selection of outfits you can choose from for your perfect rock concert look.
How to Style a Rock Concert Outfit
Here are some great tips to keep in mind:
- You should wear what makes you comfortable and don’t sport a look that doesn’t match your personality just so you can mix well with the crowd.
- Carry a comfortable pair of sneakers with you just in case the heels get too overwhelming. Or bypass the heels altogether and opt for supportive (but still cute) footwear that you can wear for hours on end and jump and dance around in.
- You might not even need to layer up because there will be a lot of activity and you might not need anything to keep you warm.
- To prevent your valuables from getting stolen, consider a fanny pack worn over the chest or a little crossbody purse.
- Don’t wear too much makeup or overdo the accessories because this might become a problem for you. If you are an active type of concert-goer, you’ll likely be doing a lot of sweating! So, wear good deodorant and consider waterproof makeup.

Frequently Asked Questions
We always like to include some frequently asked questions. Here are some about what to wear to a rock concert, how to dress, and more!
Q. What do women wear to a rock concert if they are over 40?
A. No matter your age, you can style a gorgeous and edgy look without feeling juvenile or cartoonish – simply by building on some basic blocks. You can’t go wrong with leather, but don’t overdo it. It’s a common sight at a rock concert. A biker jacket or moto jacket will fit the bill nicely. Wear with jeans and a sleeveless tank or a patterned top. You can rock (pun intended!) some booties or combat boots for a grunge look that your feet won’t hate you for. Wear a small crossbody bag and voila! If you need more inspiration, check out outfits #7, #11, and #17 above.
Q. What should I wear to a rock concert at 30?
A. You can rock Daisy Dukes if you so wish, but we love a classic jeans-and-jacket combo. Add a leather belt and a graphic tee. If you prefer a classier look, check out outfit #2. This is a fun way to style leather capris and a solid-colored top.
Q. What shoes should I wear to a rock concert?
A. Shoes are incredibly important at a rock concert. As you will likely be on your feet most of the night (even jumping around and dancing) you are going to want to wear shoes that support that. After all, nothing ruins a concert like aching, sore feet. So, before turning to your favorite stiletto boots, try giving your Converse a spin. Flats, sneakers, flat-boots… these are all good options. Add insoles to your shoes as well for a bit more comfort!
Q. What should you not wear to a concert?
A. This is an excellent question. Avoid wearing overly restrictive clothing (you want the freedom to move your arms around). Avoid plasticky materials that will have you feeling hot and sticky. An off-the-shoulder top isn’t the greatest option as these need constant adjustment and fixing.
