What does someone with a minimal, understated aesthetic wear to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour?
Glad you asked. I’ve got 10 outfit ideas for you today!
Outfits that are comfortable — no heels in this lineup!
Outfits with an understated aesthetic — hints of sparkle and color, but overall, clean lines and super wearable silhouettes.
Outfits that feel more fashion moment and less costume moment. (But if you’re into costumes, I’m in FULL SUPPORT! Do your thing.)
And most importantly:
Outfits that are meant to last. Not just something you’ll wear once — but rather, quality pieces that can integrate seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe after the show.
Special events like this are an opportunity to create meaningful, wearable keepsakes. I love it when clothes have stories. Just think — every time you wear this dress or that necklace, you’ll always remember you once wore it in the presence of our queen Taylor Swift.

Before we jump into the outfits, let’s rewind for a sec.
Last November, my friends and I tried SO HARD to get tickets to see Taylor Swift, but alas, we were one of the many who waited in that depressing Ticketmaster queue for hours until we learned all the tickets were sold out.
A mere ten days before the show in our area, we received a (legit!) text from Ticketmaster giving us a second chance at tickets. There were a few seats available and somehow we GOT TICKETS! It was so unexpected, I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Our group text was going wild and, of course, the first thing I say is, “YES BUT WHAT ARE WE WEARING?!”
And honestly, that was such a sweet part of the whole experience — hanging out with my friends beforehand, TSwift records on in the background, coming up with our outfits and savoring the anticipation.
So today, consider me the friend you can plan your outfit with. Turn on your favorite Taylor album and keep scrolling to see 10 minimalist outfit ideas for the Eras Tour + what I wore to the show.
Minimalist Outfit Ideas For The Eras Tour
The quintessential “jeans and a white tee” look, but with sequins! Also how CUTE are those lavender converse and heart necklace? Those are pieces you can wear for years to come, and they’ll always carry the memory of the concert.
Comfort alert: this dress has a relaxed fit throughout. And I can personally vouch for these boots — the are comfortable right out of the box. Great for the show, plus they’ll be a wardrobe staple come fall.
If you’re like me and you’ve been eyeing those Fleur Du Mal silk bralettes, this is the perfect excuse to get yourself a gorgeous bra. Your undie drawer will thank you after the concert!
This dress has been on my wishlist for a couple summers now — obsessed! Put white bike shorts under it so you can dance like crazy and not worry about a thing. Wear it to the show, then wear it all summer long.
Aerie White Bike Shorts (to wear underneath)
If you’ve been wanting to try parachute pants, now’s your chance! And don’t you love the contouring detail on that sparkly top? Those hoops, parachute pants, and sneakers will give your wardrobe a nice little boost after the show.
Halfway Bonus! Clear Bag Round Up
We’re halfway through the outfits! Since stadiums require clear bags, how about a quick round up of my favorites?
Now, back to the outfits!
Sheer tops are my favorite way to do a crop top look with a little coverage. LOVE the subtle sparkle and sporty vibes. And the converse, jeans, bra, and hoops will make great additions to your closet.
Can’t get enough of the color palette on this one. And here’s another appearance of the Sam Edelman Garett boots — in ivory this time! Comfy right out of the box — no break in time needed.
This silk set is absolutely gorgeous. Plus, after the show, that skirt and top would be so useful. Doc Martens do take a long time to break in, however, I’ve heard these particular Docs are softer and easier to break in since they are suede.
After the show, this top would be perfect for a date or a night out. Did you notice that squiggle choker? THE CUTEST. After the show, every time you get a compliment on your glitter chucks, you can say, “Thanks, I wore them to hang out with Taylor.”
This is the outfit I wore! I just wanna stay in that lavender haze. :)
This dress looks super boring online, but in person the chiffon is floaty and dreamy and it moves BEAUTIFULLY. It’s loose and unrestrictive all the way through, but still feels flirty since it’s so short. Bonus, it doesn’t show sweat!
I wore lavender bike shorts underneath so I could dance without a care — plus they had pockets, so I could stash my phone and lip balm and not have to carry a bag at all.
For shoes, I wore ivory combat boots from Sam Edelman. Yes, the ones I’ve already gushed about in several outfits above. They are just that good. They kept my feet happy all night.
I kept my accessories minimal and just went with heart earrings. I mentioned how much I love clothes with a story — so these will forever be my Taylor Swift keepsake earrings. They are simple enough to wear everyday, and I know I’ll wear them for years to come — and smile at the memories.
Overall, it was a simple look (no surprise there), but I had the best time dancing all night, my dress floating and swaying around me.
