What to Wear to a Rock Show

From Anthropologie

Sometimes when you have kids there isn't much time for yourself, but then there are times when you've got the sitter scheduled and you're ready for a night out on the town. But what to wear? What clothes are right for different occasions? My friend AbbysMom2001 is lucky enough to have tickets to see AC/DC! I'm so jealous. She wanted to know what she should wear so she can shake it all night long. OK, those were my words, but I'm totally singing that song in my head.

Here's what I suggested:

I would wear jeans with boots and a simple top, like a tunic...sort of long. With or without a belt, your choice. But I would wear the belt over the top, at your natural waist. Make sure it's breathable fabric since you may be dancing a little and it may be warm in there. If you don't do a belt, wear a fun necklace. The most important thing is to be comfortable and to feel cute...but wear confidence!

The look in the photo is from Anthropolgie, but you can get this look from other shops, too. Go with darker jeans, even a black rinse, for a more edgy look...perfect for when they sing "Back in Black." Take off the cardigan if it gets hot...like when they're belting out "T.N.T." It's dynamite!

Got any other ideas for AbbysMom2001?

    I think this look works for any concert...unless of course you still have an old t-shirt from that band or in your case Madonna. That's why I always buy the men's shirts from a concert. I don't like clingy tees, so the men's shirt usually looks cute slightly oversize with a belt. I cut the neck ringer off a little and a bit off the sleeves for a cuter look. Of course if you have those black rubber bracelets from Madonna's "Lucky Star" years...that would be perfect!

    I'd like a tutorial on what kinds of jean you buy to tuck into boots. None of my jean/boot combos seem to work - the jeans don't fit into boots - they're all bunchy. But, I see everyone else wearing this look. What am I missing?

    Skinny jeans! They don't mean you have to be skinny to wear them, just that they are "skinny" from the knee down. Great topic cafemama! Will write more about it here on the Buzz.

    I think that definitely outfits the modern mom rocker chic.
