For my avid concert-goers and music connoisseurs, live music remains a special place in our hearts. From the stress of dealing with the infamous Ticketmaster to planning our outfits months in advance to buying hundreds of dollars worth of merch: concerts can be one of the most thrilling things you’ll ever get to experience! But when it comes to planning for a concert, the one thing that seems to slip the minds of a lot of people is the clear-bag policy that venues have.

Venues from all across the world have initiated a “clear bag” policy to have better safety measures and security checks. With the policy being incredibly common now, the designs of clear bags have definitely upgraded from plain and simple to aesthetically pleasing and fashionable. So, while your bag may have to be clear, it doesn’t mean that it has to ruin your concert outfit! If you’re planning on going to a concert soon and need a stylish clear bag to hold all your necessities and merch, here are six options to help you dance and sing the night away.

For those who love a pop of color and love to live life on the more eccentric side, this clear purse is the perfect accessory. This clear, acrylic clutch bag from Amazon comes in 13 different colors. This simple, minimalistic and classy piece adds sophistication and feminine flair to any outfit. So no need to stress out and worry about compromising your outfit’s aesthetic to match the bag– the bag will cater to you!

If you’re going to a concert where you know for a fact that you WILL be dancing and shaking it up, a fanny pack might be the bag to choose from. This holographic and iridescent fanny pack from Amazon is perfect for those who don’t want to worry about carrying a bag on their shoulders and for those who travel on the lighter side. Also, my friends can positively attest that using a fanny pack is perfect for rave-goers and allows you to keep a better eye on your things! So if you’re looking for something functional and easy to handle, a clear fanny pack is the way to go. 

Maybe it’s just me, but I love having things personalized and catered specifically to my style and personality. So what better way than to get a clear bag with your initials on it? This adorable clear bag on Etsy not only comes with a patch with your initial, but you can customize it to add up to three patches and the seller has loads of options to choose from. Patches of smiley faces, rainbows and lighting bolts can turn any plain bag into one that matches your aesthetic perfectly. Oh, and did I mention all the bags come with a free mini scarf to add on? Literally, take my money right now.

Carry all your concert essentials, plus merch with this “Little Clear Bag” from Bloomingdales. The “Little Clear Bag” print on the front has reviewers raving over how cute it is, as well as the sturdiness and durability of the bag. It’s chic, effective and perfect for the minimalist who just appreciates the simple things in life.

Going to concerts with your best friends is an experience like no other. When my best friends and I went to go see Harry Styles perform at Madison Square Garden this past August, I wish I had thought of buying a set of matching clear bags for the two of us. So, what better way to commemorate your friendship than with personalized clear bags to bring alongside for every future concert with them? These adorable clear bags from Etsy can be personalized with your name in 15 different colors and are extremely affordable for you and your bestie.

While some clear bags may be awkward to style, these bags will match any outfit you decide to dress in and are made to be a complement to the fit– not a hassle to deal with. With these six clear bag options, you’ll spend less time stressing about how you’re going to carry all your things and more time having the absolute best time of your life at the concert!
