How To Choose The Perfect Concert Outfit

How To Choose The Perfect Concert Outfit

If you have tried on more than 5 outfits, you’re trying too hard…

If you are hoping for some advice on what to wear to a certain kind of concert, I am not here to help you with that, but instead, I am here to help you realize something more important.

With that being said, I am going to a concert in New York tonight and I am overthinking way too much about what I should wear. It is going to be darker, so it really doesn’t matter in the end. I want to be comfortable and cute but it’s not like anyone really cares what I am wearing other than myself. Everyone will be looking at the performer anyway. So why am I still sitting here, half-naked, stressing out among all these clothes on the floor? I could just go like this with jeans, a bra, and fuzzy socks anyway...right? I mean it’s not like I have anybody to impress either. I’m not single…although it may seem like an impossible scenario. There actually is somebody who puts up with my crazy indecisiveness.

That wonderful boyfriend of mine is waiting for me to come over, and here I am wasting my time. I understand that there is a rare chance of being “sexy” and comfy at the same time. I get cold so easily, so I need to layer. Hypothermia and sexy is not for me, so I have already ruled out that choice. So….I guess I’ll have to go with looking like a marshmallow with five layers of clothing, a hat, scarf, and gloves. Maybe I’ll wear my penguin hat just because I should not care whatsoever about what anybody else thinks. Why do I do this to myself?

Okay...I’ve decided. Since the performer is a rapper and sorta has a hipster-ness to him, I’m going to wear a graphic-tee with a long sleeve gray shirt underneath, blue jeans...wait what am I doing? You don’t care about what I’m wearing, so why am I telling you? I have to get to my boyfriend’s house so we can get to the concert on time.

Stop wasting your time picking out your outfit. Stop searching on the internet for ideas about what to wear. Just put on some clothes and then go have a good time! Don’t go naked though. Nobody wants to see that. Don’t care what everyone else will think of your outfit because they won’t be paying attention to you anyway...c’mon don’t be so solipsistic. As long as you are comfy, what do you care? This can apply to other events, not just a concert. Chances are that most people won't even give your outfit a second thought...except for an should care about what you wear to those.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
