Before we get to the different looks for specific types of concerts, you must keep a simple idea in mind. Your outfit will change depending on the artists and the music genre.

Pop Concert Looks For Men
A pop concert comes with a lot of outfit freedom. You can wear practically anything you want and still have an acceptable look. You can choose to be quirky, classic, colourful and stick to dark tones, it is entirely up to you! However, if you are still confused, dress with simplicity and restraint. You can never go wrong with a T-shirt and jeans. A classic white tee and blue jeans combo with sneakers is a great look in and of itself. But, it is also a phenomenal foundation to add things on top. A statement jacket, funky accessories, and quirky shoes are all great additional pieces.

Styl Tip: Never compromise on comfort for concert looks. You will be standing on your feet for hours, dancing and moving around, so keep comfort as the number one priority.
What To Wear To A Concert For Men: Think Rock
Rebel is the first word that comes to mind when we think of the word rock. Rock’ n’ Roll has long been associated with darkness and teen rebellion. So, those are the themes to pick on when searching for what to wear to a concert for men. For a rock concert in 2023, Kurt Cobain is your style icon. His grunge with soft punk aesthetic fits perfectly with the vibe of any concert now. So, we suggest selecting distressed denim, leather, plaid and studs. If you have a vintage band tee, you are winning the outfit game! Rock concerts allow you to have a bad-boy persona, so do not shy away from it. Shar Rukh Khan in Josh dressed in chains and leather with worn denim is also a great inspiration to draw from.

What To Wear To A Concert That Is Outdoors
No matter what the weather conditions are, dressing for an outdoor rock concert is always a hassle. It is too hot during the day and too cold during the evening to be truly comfortable in anything you wear. But remembering a couple of easy rules will make things easier for you. Layering is your best friend for outdoor concerts. Always carry a light jacket to protect yourself from the cold and the sun. Additionally, you need to wear breathable clothing. You are going to be surrounded by a lot of people in a lot of heat. So, your trusted cotton button-down is your best friend here. As opposed to heavy jeans, you can opt for tailored shorts or cotton pants. If you want to wear denim, remember to wear a light one. Finally, keep your white sneakers at home. Outdoor concerts are a place where things easily get muddy, so opt for footwear you don’t mind getting dirty.

What To Wear To A Concert For Men Held At A Music Festival?
Music festivals are the perfect place to experiment with your clothes. They are a space full of varying weather conditions and many people to take inspiration from. There is no wrong answer when questioning what to wear to a music festival. However, we do recommend emulating a colourful palette. That can be in the form of a colourful shirt with classic shorts. It can also mean mixing and matching multiple prints and patterns. The only limit to festival dressing is you!

Outfits To Wear To A Punjabi Pop Concert
Punjabi pop music has reached new highs in the last few years in India. Artists like King, Diljit Dosanjh and AP Dhillon hold events left right and centre. We are now seeing many musical events pop up for the same. So, having a trusty set of outfits for these events is a good idea. After all, you never know which opportunities will pop up. A great way to decide on looks for such an event is to see what the artists themselves wear. You can wear a streetwear-inspired look for a Diljit Dosanjh show but go for dressy casuals for AP Dhillon. A rule of thumb here is that exaggerated streetwear, hoodies and your favourite pair of denim are great outfits. Pops of colour here and there are recommended but primarily focus on showcasing your personality.
