Denver has a thriving streetwear scene and many fans at the SZA concert embraced this style with open arms. Oversized hoodies, baggy cargo pants, and graphic tees were prevalent. Sneakerheads made sure their footwear game was on point, with rare kicks and iconic sneakers from various brands — adding an urban edge to the night. SZA’s merchandise that was on sale at the concert, was a variety of street style influenced Jerseys, spray-painted T-shirts, and Y2K-style hoodies. Shayla Burnett, a long-time fan of SZA, came to the concert in the bright yellow SZA jersey, an olive green mini-skirt, and white-heeled boots. 

“SZA inspired me to dress that way because her style is very earthy with neutral colors but also sometimes there’s a pop of color, along with oversized pieces with fitting pieces,” Burnett said. “That’s why I wanted to do an oversized jersey with a mini skirt to give that contrast and heels to kinda dress it up.”

Denim jackets, flared pants, and vintage band tees transported concert-goers back to a different era.
