Going to a rock concert or an alternative music festival in the summer? Channel the grunge goddesses of the 90s by wearing a fashionable-again slip dress. This simple piece is lightweight enough to keep you cool on hot summer days, without skimping on style. Sneakers (instead of boots) make this outfit feel more modern than retro.

Summer concerts call for a cute outfit that's easy and breezy. If you love to show off your shape, without letting it all hang out, we love this concert outfit idea of a long, colorful striped maxi skirt, paired with a tucked-in, sleeveless tank top. A longer skirt can actually be cooler than shorter outfits on sunny days, since it keeps the sun's rays off your legs. Meanwhile, the movement of the skirt creates a welcome breeze. You could wear this cute summer outfit with thong sandals, or opt for basic sneakers as pictured.

Do you love bohemian fashion looks? Here's an easy, cute concert outfit idea for wearing to country music concerts, outdoor music festivals and concerts in the park this summer.

Then simply tuck in your favorite white t-shirt and add a cross body purse to hold your concert essentials. Wear with thong sandals or ankle boots. Optional but cute — a bohemian style floppy hat to keep the sun off your face.
