Headed to a rave or an electric dance music festival? If so, there’s no doubt you’re super stoked. You’ve got all of the details ironed out; you’ve got an awesome crew assembled, you’ve figured out transportation, and you’ve even set up overnight accommodations (if you aren’t too pumped up to sleep, that is). There’s just one more thing you need to work out: your clothing!
Your ensemble is everything. You want to pop in the dim lighting and you want to make sure that it’s comfortable and moves with you. Your best bet? Bright colors (think neon) that glow in the dark; you can throw in a few LED accessories, too.
Here’s a look at some awesome suggestions that will totally make your rave experience even more amazing.
Light-Up Face Masks
One of the hottest trends right now is light-up face masks. They totally transform your look, they can keep you discreet, and they just look incredible on the dance floor. Skeletons, aliens, and even playful animals; the options are limitless!
Dress Up that Booty
Bounce your booty on the dance floor with some booty shorts. Since they’re super short, they’re easy to move in and will keep you cool; plus, they accentuate your, well, accents. From dayglow colors to bold, iridescent patterns; you can even rock a pair of lace or fringe booty shorts!
Jog It Up in Joggers!
For dudes, as well as chicks, joggers are great attire for raves. They’re loose and comfy, and the way the flow when you dance just adds to your look. Plus, they can features pockets… and who doesn’t need pockets? Universe-inspired, jellyfish, tie-dye, and even your favorite fuel-up food (like pizza and ice cream!) are just some of the fun and funky prints you can find.
Another great way to show off those assets is with a tutu! They’re fun, playful, and just look amazing when you’re twirling around to those beats. There are a myriad of color and material options to choose from; and patterns, too! You’ll find no shortage of tutus, and no matter what you pick, it will definitely look awesome on the dance floor.
Steampunk is so in right now, and it’s totally easy to see why: the blend of whimsical and industrial is just the perfect combo! Throw on a pair of steampunk-inspired goggles or a monocle, a hat, and maybe even carry a cane; just don’t forget to opt for bright colors or illuminated accessories so you really pop on the floor.
Two Words: Hydration Packs
If there’s one rule of EDM, it’s this: stay hydrated. You need to replace all of that fluid you’re losing so you can stay refreshed and last long into the night. Hydration packs are an essential accessory, and they can also be a stand-out feature of your outfit. Forget boring and bland; neon, fuzzy, iridescent, silver, gold – there are tons of incredibly fun designs to choose from.
When it comes to dressing for a music festival, just remember: anything goes! As long as you’re having fun and you’re comfortable, you can wear whatever you want (but incorporating these ideas will definitely make you look incredible).
