The Do's and Don'ts of Dressing for Your First Rave

what to wear to a rave

Festival season is in full swing and picking out your rave outfit is the best part of preparation. Just because it's your first rave doesn't mean you have to look like a rookie!

My number one rule is to be comfortable, and that goes for men and women! You're on your feet for hours and the last thing you want to worry about are your shoes. I wore sandals to a rave once and I will never ever make that mistake again. First, you run the risk of getting stepped on. Second, walking around a rave with sandals gives "grocery store feet" a whole new meaning. Not fun. There is no need to buy expensive sneakers; I find the best answer is to buy a cheap pair and invest in some good inserts. Your shoes tend to get dirty after a rave or two so, with this solution, the guilt of tossing them is non existent!

Next, you have to think about the location and weather conditions of the rave you're going to. Is it outdoors or indoors? Is it on a dirt field or a beach? Will it take place during the day or at night? With comfort in mind, you want to dress for the setting. Ladies, I prefer fitted rave clothing with no loose ends. I dance my heart out at raves so I don't like anything swinging around. High-waisted shorts or booty shorts are super comfy. Rave crop tops or one pieces are also great. Leggings, like the new Plurmaid Mermaid Leggings from Dem Vibes, are also a comfortable and cute option. I find anything that is a spandex blend is really ideal.

If the rave takes place at night then led accessories are a must. Led flower crowns are the perfect addition to any rave outfit. Guys, don't forget your led glasses or led hat. You don't get too many chances to wear glowing rave accessories in day to day life so take this opportunity to glow nuts!! ;)

Now gentlemen, you have it made. All you need is a rave tank top or tee and your rave outfit is done. Dem Vibes has the latest rave tank tops and rave shirts on the market right now. Whether you want to stand out or be cool with the crowd, we've got something for you. 

The last thing you'll need to complete your rave outfit is a smile. Let your personality shine, be creative and live with peace, love, unity and respect.

So what are you going to wear to your first rave?
