Looking the part at high-profile events

By Molly Brodhacker | Staff Writer

San Antonio, being a major city of the US, is frequented by many musical and theatrical acts every month. Whenever I go to an event one of the main things on my mind- besides finding parking and buying merchandise is what to wear. Fashion seems to be one of the main focuses at events, and I can’t help but to notice the outfits that surround me whenever I’m at one. There are a few simple guidelines that may help you decide on that perfect outfit.

Sparkles. With the dim lights of amphitheaters and stadiums nothing can make as  much of an impression as sparkles that catch and refract even the tiniest light. But glitz should be used in moderation, maybe a sequined tank under a cardigan, or a sparkly purse to add that nice touch to your outfit.

Country Concerts. Being relatively new to Texas, I recently experienced my first country concert. It certainly was an experience, and the fashion was a whole new rodeo in itself. One of the main points I can share is that with jeans there is one simple rule… It must have bling! The jeans by the brand of “MissMe” are obviously the most popular (and expensive) choice. Cowboy boots are also required, especially at the rodeo. I saw lots of women wearing big cross necklaces, and many stone and rhinestone embellished belts. With so many other detailed pieces of your outfit, I would keep your shirt relatively simple.

If you’re going to a musical event, more than likely you’ll be jumping around on your feet all night. Because of this, I would recommend not wearing heels. Your feet will thank you. Boots are usually a safe bet, and can really tie a whole outfit together depending on how you use them.

Most larger venues, (AT&T center, Alamo Dome) are really cold during events like these. I would highly suggest a cute coat, maybe a leather jacket or a peacoat to make sure you don’t have a chill. Even if you don’t need the jacket, you can always leave it on your chair if you feel warm later on.

Most importantly, stay classy, San Antonio. We all know those girls who look like they forgot a whole part of their outfit at home, and it’s simply not a good look. When in doubt, put more clothes on.

A night out on the town seeing a favorite act can  be a fun time to share with friends or family, and now you can make sure you look your best when you’re there.
