Liberty Answers: What to Wear to a Concert

Liberty Answers: What to Wear to a Concert

Got plans to see a winter show, gig or musical? No matter where your ticket takes you, Liberty knows exactly what to wear

By: George Elliot

Whether you’re a budding thespian, pop gig regular, a lover of festive musicals or enjoy a sophisticated night at the ballet, ‘tis the season to see a show. Yet securing a ticket is only half the battle; knowing what to wear to a concert is, in fact, an artform in itself. So let us help. We’ve curated the dream outfit for every type of concert. With it, your sartorial concerns will soon become a thing of the past.

The West End Sing-Along

Liberty Strawberry Thief Tana Lawn™ Cotton Short-Sleeve Shirt Dress, £225

The place to go if you’re after a good sing-along, London’s West End is home to many must-see musicals, from Les Miserables and The Lion King to Pretty Woman and Wicked. But once you’ve decided on a production, your outfit is the next thing that needs careful consideration. Yes, you’ll want to dress up but you’ll also need to factor in wearability, with something comfortable enough for the hours you’ll spend sitting stationary. Liberty’s Strawberry Thief Dress, £225 could be just the solution. Cut from our signature Tana Lawn™ cotton, our signature fabric that’s breathable, durable and supremely soft, it’s a vibrant shirtdress that’ll see you through the show in both style and comfort.

The Pop Performance

House of Sunny Groove Is In The Heart Hockney Dress, £100

Glance over the gig calendar and you’ll see that artists that first made waves decades ago are heading back onto centerstage (think: East 17, Sister Sledge, Rod Stewart and Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp). Take a trip down memory lane by firstly securing a ticket and secondly, embracing the return of vintage fashion trends. House of Sunny Groove Is In The Heart Hockney Dress, £100 is infused with nineties nostalgia, but for something snug over the top, look next to STAND STUDIO’s seventies style Towa Faux-Fur Trench Coat, £580 with Chloé’s Marcie Nano Saddle Bag, £470 as the final retro touch.

The Festive Show

Rixo Samantha Mini-Dress, £295

A festive show is a seasonal necessity, and Team Liberty is especially excited for Love Actually in Concert, The Muppet Christmas Carol in Concert and Rick Astley’s Swinging Christmas. But you can help raise the festive spirit by first dressing the part. Start with RIXO’s sequin-emblazoned Samantha Mini-Dress, £295 paired with something just as opulent like Dries Van Noten’s Blest Blazer, £795. And because you can never have too much sparkle (not during party season, anyway), deck yourself wherever possible with statement pieces, like Kenneth Jay Lanes Gold-Plated Chunky Chain Necklace, £70. Let the show begin.

The Classical Concert

Needle & Thread Lisette Ruffle Gown, £500

Traditionalists will agree; now’s the time for attending a classical concert or festive ballet, so how about a candlelit performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, The Nutcracker or Carols at the Royal Albert Hall this year? Such concerts call for elegance, an outfit that’ll navigate the dress code potholes with ease, so look no further than Needle & Thread’s black, off-the-shoulder Lisette Ruffle Gown, £500. To get to and from the event without feeling winter’s chill, couple this ruffled statement dress with something warm like Totême’s Wool-Cashmere Coat, £790 and keep A.P.C.’s Small Emma Leather Bag, £460 by your side.
