Going to a rave party is an amazing experience, and it’s always fun to check out the crazy rave outfits your friends will be wearing! I enjoy going to raves not only for the dance and party factor. I always keep an eye out for costumes that stand out and scream, “Look at me!”
If you’ve never been to a rave before, I’m sure you’re pretty nervous about what you should wear, but never fear. You’ll have plenty of help, thanks to the internet!
What To Expect At Raves
You have a right to be nervous if you’re not the confident type since rave parties are all-nighters with lots of activity. There will definitely be dancing so aside from wearing cute rave outfits, you might want to practice some sleek moves for the dance floor.
There will also be alcohol so if you can’t hold your liquor too well, I advise you to watch what you’re drinking or stick to the tame stuff. People often do crazy stuff at raves, and it could get pretty wild. Hopefully, there won’t be anything illegal, but don’t be shocked if someone brought out some party drugs.
However, stop worrying too much about “fitting in” in a rave crowd. These parties are all about fun and acceptance. You’d rarely encounter bullying and other forms of violence on ravers.
Next Stop: The Get-Up
Dressing for a rave is particularly difficult for girls. Rave outfits for girls seem to have a standard of being on the wild and skimpy side, and therefore might make some of us uncomfortable. You don’t want to draw attention to yourself for being different, but if too-short shorts and tight blouses aren’t your thing, then being different is perhaps the best.
Here’s a hot tip: never, ever sacrifice your comfort for trying to fit in with the rest of the crowd. You’ll never be able to enjoy the party if your clothes and your personality don’t mix!
Instead of going for the standard rave wear outfits, why not try something new? Don’t be afraid to design your own rave clothes. Some textile paint and glitter might do the job for a unique design. Add some flashy accessories to the mix (You can buy them online.) and you’re ready to go!
If you want to stand out, wear something crazy and out-of-this-world. Why not dress as a wicked witch or a space robot perhaps? These are all fun and crazy costumes, and they’re not too difficult to make.
One last piece of advice for girls: high-heeled shoes don’t match with rave outfits for women. They might look sexy and awesome, but your feet won’t think so after a whole torturous night of wearing them.
Once you have the perfect costume, you should attend to some proper hygiene. Since you’re going to be stuck in a room full of sweaty bodies for hours, you might want to freshen up a bit, particularly if you’ve just gotten off from work. Some deodorant won’t hurt either. Surely you don’t want to attend a rave smelling like stale fries.
