Today’s chronicles is centered a little bit differently than the others. This weekend (and by the time this post is out) I’ll be in Dubai attending a concert- not that it’s my first time- but concerts, as much as we regard them to be a [no dress code] zone, have “A LOT” of rules to dress by in order to have a good time.
Yes, what you wear matters that much. First off [the rules to the game];
1- Bring out your oldies; I’m pretty sure you have a few T-shirts you’re on the verge of getting rid of- well, this is one way to make sure they go out with a blast!
2- Black leggings over jeans; Jeans is second nature to clothing yourself but in concerts, it’s best to have something hugging you tight. Plus, leggings are lighter in material- they’ll keep you cool between the crowds.
3- No studs, no tugs; Don’t wear your spiked sweaters. You’re going to be neck to neck & shoulder to shoulder with thousands of people, keep it clean. Stay away from things that will allow others to drag you by like hoop accessories & big embellishment buttons.
4- Leather sounds winning, but don’t!; Concerts & leather jackets/leggings go hand in hand… in theory. But in reality they will over heat your body like crazy because leather is not an absorbent material. So if you must, go with something like leather sleeves/leather cutouts instead of a whole leather piece.
5- Combats are a must.; You will need to have on you a pair sturdy enough to counter other people’s feet stepping on yours. A tough leather combat boot is the perfect shoe for this setting.
Now that you’re familiar with the rules, lets [play].
Brand: Forever 21
Pieces: Black cotton leggings- Denim jacket with light leather sleeves- Three loose [band inspired] tank tops- One [American Eagle] shirt.
In case your closet is precious to you, and you have nothing to spare on a [rough&tumble] weekend, then you’re like me. So on such a short notice & unwillingness to spend money…. what’s my go to?
[Forever 21]. Its one of those places that can never run out of [on the go] cotton material. It’s also one of those stores that constantly have [sale] wracks all seasons long. Plus, their prices are cheaper than most retail stores around & their sizes are easy to slip into. In conclusion; a [well-rounded saver].
If the denim jacket isn’t your thing, throw on an oversized T-shirt & you’re set!
Have a super fun charged weekend, everyone xx
