Excited for your very first rave party or EDM show? Maybe you have everything else sorted out – who you’re going with, how you’re getting there, etc. But have you given your outfit a thought? Of course, you need to plan the perfect look for the party as well. And you might not sure what kind of clothes you should wear. Worry not because this guide will give you some great ideas on what to wear.
Outfit Ideas and Tips for Girls
Rave parties and EDM shows are typically dark so you need to make your outfit shine for you. In other words, people’s clothes will be the sole source of lighting at the event. This can only mean one thing – you too need to pick bright and colorful (preferably glow-in-the-dark) clothing items.
You can look for clothing items and accessories with LED attachments. These items would be easily available online. Nowadays there are hoodies and sunglasses as well as masks fitted with LED to make your outfit literally outshine others. As for tops and dresses, look for pieces in light-reflecting material, which are sure to be visible in the dark.
Outfit Ideas and Tips for Guys
Like the outfit for girls, guys’ outfits should also be a light source at the party. Although men’s rave fashion is rapidly changing, you can currently rock accessories designed especially for rave parties. Rave masks and rave sunglasses are a must for your ensemble.
As for clothing, you should look for unique and trendy patterns and popping colors. Arc-reactor shirts may be the perfect addition to your look. If you’re planning to be a regular at these parties or shows, you might want to invest in LED gloves. These will light up the party and change patterns according to the music that’s playing.
