"5 Style Lessons from Dressing for the Eras Concert: Here's what I learned ..."

Doesn't it feel like we've all been living in a Taylor Swift song lately? With all the excitement from Taylor's current Eras Tour swirling around, it's hard not to get swept up in the buzz. But amidst it all, I found a little gem of wisdom about intentional dressing that I just had to share with you.

 

Picture this:

A sea of sequins, excited faces, and sing-a-longs so loud it fills your soul.


If you were one of the lucky ones who got to see our queen Taylor live, you know the next big question was: what will you be wearing to the concert?

 

I'll be honest, the fear of missing out was real. I didn't want to be left behind on the glittery, sequin-drenched bandwagon. In pure Justina-style, I first dug into my own wardrobe, hoping to find something worthy of the occasion, but nothing seemed to sparkle bright enough for it. I scoured the internet for options, dived deep into Pinterest for inspiration, and scrolled through countless 'potential' outfits.

 

But here's the thing, I hit a wall every time I considered buying something new.


It felt like it'd be a one-hit-wonder, something I'd wear once and then never wear again. That just didn't sit right with me, not with my aim to be more intentional about my purchases, both for the sake of my bank account and also the environment.




I don't know what to wear” was not a problem I thought I'd be facing but here I was, one sleep before the big day and still with a BLANK SPACE to the outfit I'd be wearing.


With no time left to buy anything, I had no choice but to turn to my faithful wardrobe. I was determined to find something that not only captured the fun and excitement I was feeling, but also had a sprinkle of Taylor vibes — and, of course, something that was unmistakably me.

 

Thank God, in the eleventh hour, I struck gold with pieces I already owned. I managed to whip up 2 outfit options I was happy with and found a stash of gem stickers from my dancing days. I quickly bling-ed up my fedora hat and with a little help from my bestie on the day, we added some sparkle to my sunnies too (which totally made the look, in my opinion!).


I ended up choosing the outfit that was most comfortable, made me feel like my own princess and in a colour that could only make me smile! I absolutely adored the final outcome, and it felt even better knowing I hadn't spent any money on the outfit nor contributed to the fast fashion cycle.




That being said, there's absolutely no judgment from me if you decided to buy something new for the concert. Seeing everyone's outfits was like watching a live fashion show—truly a part of the night's magic. But for me, choosing to repurpose and reimagine what I already had felt like the right choice.

 

This whole experience taught me key valuable lessons about dressing for any occasion:

  • The temptation to buy something just for one event is real, but it's worth asking if you'll really want it afterward.

  • Your wardrobe might already hold the perfect piece that fits the theme - you just have to look.

  • It's possible to let the theme inspire you without dictating your outfit choice.

  • Getting creative with what you already have can be surprisingly fun and fulfilling.

  • If you do decide to buy something, think about how it can be a part of your wardrobe in the long term.

As our dear Tay-Tay would say, "We'll never go out of style," and I truly believe that applies not only to our unique personal style but also to our creative and intentional approach to dressing for all of life's occasions.
