One of the greatest things about a concert T-shirt is it makes everyone look like a rockstar: just add a bit of frayed denim here, a little leather—black, of course—there and layer in a couple of long necklaces. The whole process takes less than five minutes, and guarantees Sky Ferreira-worthy results every time. There’s a reason why we see thousands of variations on the outfit each music festival season. It just works.
But that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself. There’s plenty of ways to style a band tee outside the concert circuit; it’s a much more versatile piece than you might think. To prove it, I’ve included five outfit suggestions in the slideshow that’ll work for pretty much anything except hanging out in a big muddy field for several days on end.
