You probably already know that raves are all about bright, wild and crazy outfits, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out how to match together rave-theme outfits so that you look cute and aren’t over the top. These easy-to-follow tips will help you find rave theme outfits that look great and make you stand out from the crowd!
DO go for it
Raves are fun, exciting, and memorable. The first step to having a blast at the event is to wear a great outfit. Let’s talk about the dos and don’ts when it comes to raving theme outfits. You should always wear comfortable clothing that you feel confident in because there will be tons of people around you all night long! Make sure your outfit is bright so you stand out from the crowd, but not too bright or you’ll look like a giant glow stick. Neon colours work well for this type of occasion as well as anything with glitter or sequins. Flowing dresses are nice too because they make it easier to dance without tripping over your clothes. Lastly, don’t forget to go all out with makeup and hair!
DO consider wearing an white
- Consider wearing all white. This goes for clothes, accessories, and makeup.
- Invest in a pair of white shoes to really make it pop.
- Don’t wear anything else that is white unless you want to be mistaken for a ghost the entire night.
- Don’t wear White jeans, any kind of tight clothing (particularly leggings), or synthetic fabrics such as nylon. These items absorb light rather than reflect it and will glow very brightly under UV lighting.
DO keep it simple
- Stick to a color scheme that’s easy to accessorize.
- Choose clothing that will make you feel comfortable, confident, and sexy!
- It’s okay to wear a one-piece (everyone has their own style).
- Wear what makes you feel like the best version of yourself!
- Remember it’s important to keep safety in mind when making your choice, so don’t wear anything that could be dangerous if people crowd around you or someone steps on it!
- Have fun with it!
Don’t buy everything at once
Buying everything at once will make you broke, your friends will think you’re crazy, and you’ll have no room to store all your stuff. Instead, buy a few pieces at a time that work well together. Remember that when it comes to music festivals or rave parties, what’s on trend now might not be in style next year. Choose pieces that are timeless like anything from the 70s or 80s. You can’t go wrong with anything from the 90s either! The best thing about buying items gradually is that you won’t have any regrets about missing out on something you liked but couldn’t afford. The worst thing about buying a bunch of clothes at once is figuring out how to wear them all before they lose their trendy status-especially if they don’t fit into your day-to-day life outside of the party scene. Don’t rely too heavily on accessories: Accessories such as masks, glasses, headbands, face paint, hair dye and beads are fun ways to customize an outfit without spending much money.
Don’t throw up your hands and give up if you have no ideas
If you’re at a loss for what to wear, try to think about the colour palette associated with the event. For example, if it’s an all-black event, consider wearing all-black. If it’s an all-white event then do your best to match the theme colour. You can also try finding inspiration in the artwork or logos associated with the event. Find out what music is being played so that you can go for outfits that reflect that genre as well. Maybe it will give you some ideas on how to dress up!
Don’t give in to peer pressure
It’s never too late to change your mind about something. Peer pressure is a real thing, but it doesn’t have to be as bad as it sounds. Make sure you’re making your decision for the right reasons, not because someone told you that you should. In this case, peer pressure can be a good thing – if it’s to make sure you know that no means no. It’s important to remember that just because someone else likes something doesn’t mean it will work for you. And while they may say everyone else is doing this, don’t let them sway your opinion. You are in charge of what happens with your body and no one has the right to tell you otherwise.
