Your teenage years spent listening to head-banging music while lying in the dark may be far behind you. But that doesn’t mean your soul still doesn’t belong to rock and roll.
If your favorite band is still going strong and you have tickets to see them, what do you wear to look like the cool rocker you’ve always been? Here are three ideas for what to wear to a rock concert when you are over 40 or 50.
Leather Jacket + Jeans
A pair of jeans and a cool moto jacket is a no-brainer combo for a rock concert. Whether you wear skinny jeans or bootcut, dark wash or light wash ripped jeans or clean; it doesn’t matter. Whatever suits your body type is the best pair for you.
As for the leather moto jacket, black is the everlasting symbol of rock and roll. However, now that you are older, you may find you have outgrown it. Black leather can be harsh and aging next to mature skin, so you’re OK to go with a more sophisticated shade like blush, which is considered neutral.
Pair your leather jacket with a white or cream top with a slight edge. Look for tops with cutouts, studs, or other rock n’ roll touches. Top it off with your upscale rocker look with a designer bag and a pair of cute suede booties.
Black Leggings + a Long Top
Black leggings worn with a long top are another great way to get the grown-up rocker chic look. Plus, you will feel super comfy all night long. Any black legging will do, but leather or faux leggings add to the heavy metal vibe. Team your leggings with a sleek, long top that covers your bottom. This brick cashmere sweater looks fabulous with this inky crossbody bag and comfy black slides.
A Concert Tee + Edgy Accessories
This last look may feel a little corny for some, but hey, it’s a rock concert. Cheer on your favorite rockers in a band concert tee. Your favorite black jeans, dress them up. Finish off the look with a fabulous bag and flat booties loaded with heavy metal studs and hardware. It’s simple, but it does the trick.
