As we close out the summer, residents in the Washington, D.C.-area are getting ready to go out with a bang! Two large pop concerts are coming to town- ‘Passion, Pain, & Pleasure Tour’ featuring headliner Trey Songz with R&B Singer, Monica, and the ‘Monster Ball Tour’ with the infamous Lady Gaga. I have been helping some friends shop for months for these concerts. Since I’ve been helping the, I figure, why not help A*cute readers? I know some of you aren’t as dramatic about finding outfits for a concert, but maybe the style choices below can give you some ideas of what you can wear. And for the record, I do believe that the Lady Gaga concert will look like a costume party. So, you may want to head to the party store instead of the mall, lol.
Trey Songz and Monica– September 4, DAR Constitution Hall
Trey Sonz and Monica are two sultry, yet fun R&B singers and I guarantee their show will bring out both sides in them. You'll want to achieve a classy, fun, and sexy look for their concert. The colorful options on the left (pink shoes and purple clutch) will show off your fun and adventurous side, while the black and gold boots with gold jewelry will play up your sexiness. Whatever you decide to wear, just know that there will be a million women trying to compete with you- the ladies LOVE TREY!
Lady Gaga– September 7, Verizon Center
A friend of mine has been looking for a plastic skirt everywhere. But they are super expensive! So opt for either a regular pink high-waist skirt on pants. The high-waist tight featured in this picture are from American Apparel ($42). They also come in a variety of other colors. You can find a bustier at any store that carries lingerie (Macy's, Victoria's Secret, Fredericks of Hollywood, etc.).
This look is very easy to achieve: ALL BLACK EVERYTHING, decorative tights and gaudy jewelry.
