LuvSeats Style Guide: What to Wear to a Jazz Concert


Picking an outfit for an event can be daunting. Especially when there isn’t a dress code. But LuvSeats has you covered with a complete style guide! So what does one wear to a jazz concert? Well, that is all dependent on what kind of venue it is being held in. What you may wear to a speakeasy, you wouldn’t exactly wear to a show at a nice theater. Today we’ll focus on a jazz concert at a nice theater. Below are five tips to help you prevent any fashion faux pas:

Tip #1

Comfort comes first. 

Often in the theater, the temperature inside can be very cool, the last thing you want is to be so distracted by your discomfort that you can’t fully enjoy the performance. So be sure to wear an outer layer that not only keeps you cool but complements your outfit as well. You can never go wrong with a blazer or cardigan! 

Tip #2

It’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. 

A nice jazz show is absolutely not the time to don a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Show your respect to the artist by not looking like you just rolled out of bed. This doesn’t mean you have to wear your best suit, if you’d like to keep it casual, try smart casual or business casual.

Tip #3

Unless your a fashionista who knows how to mix colors well, keep the color scheme of your outfit simple. 

A jazz concert is an elegant affair, so whether you decide to dress casual or more formal, sticking to one to two colors (not including neutrals) max, will ensure you don’t look a mess. There is elegance in simplicity. Unsure what colors pair well? Check out this article by The Trendspotter for fabulous combinations

Tip #4

Avoid big hats, and big hairstyles. 

The last thing you want to do is be that annoying person, obstructing someone’s view of the performance. Just don’t do it.

Tip #5

Avoid over accessorizing.

Nothing takes away more from a great ensemble than an excessive amount of accessories. Chanel herself once said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off”. It should also be noted that accessories can make an otherwise very casual outfit, one more befitting a jazz concert.  For instance, you may be wearing a nice blouse, jeans, and flats. That alone could work fine, but add a beret, and suddenly its so chic. For more tips on accessorizing check out these articles for men, and women
