Our friend, Susan, sent us an email about What to Wear to summer concerts: “My husband and I are taking our teenage son and friends to a concert next month. What do I wear that won’t be screaming “I’m the mom” but is age-appropriate and trendy too? The concert will be outside so it’ll be warm (aka jeans will be too hot). Thanks for any suggestions – S”
For outdoor concerts, our go-to is a maxi dress as it is the perfect item for lounging in the grass at summer festivals. It is universally flattering and when paired with wedge sandals, it can create an wonderful elongated look. It is also ageless, so for our cool concert going mom, it’s the perfect free-flowing dress to frolic from concert to the after party. HERE’S AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE MAXI: Make sure the dress is not too long. For comfort, the maximum length should be just above the ankle. Take it to your tailor to find the perfect length. We like to accessorize with a pair of bright statement earrings and an arm full of bangles.
