The Dress Code
There isn’t one! There are no rules when it comes to what you can wear to a rave, but there are plenty of should and should not options. First, it’s important to keep in mind that you will be moving around a lot. That means that even if you want to arrive in your street clothes (which is perfectly acceptable) you are going to want to stick to lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton.
On the other hand, if you don’t want to arrive in your casual Friday outfit, you can join the masses of rave-goers who choose to use the event as an opportunity to let their true creativity shine. It’s common for attendees to dress as fairies, angels, cartoon characters, and more. Some arrive in nothing more than shorts and a bra-top, and the outfits that show more skin can be livened up with the help of some strategically placed body paint. Finally, accessories like Chemion LED glasses, fiber optic hair braids, and other light up wearables, are favorites at such events.
One word of warning though: if you opt to arrive in costume, you can buy or make one, but don’t rent it! You don’t want to risk it becoming damaged or dirty during the rave, which is very likely to happen.
For the Gals
Mini tutus, flower bras, body paint—oh my! As a girl, when it comes to picking out the right rave outfit, it’s all about choosing what you feel comfortable dancing in and making it look bright and colorful! You can do this with flower accessories, body paint, beads, neon clothes, headbands, and so much more!
