If you’ve never been to a rave before, it’s essential to know that rave culture has its own unique style and trends. Of course, the central component of rave culture is to do what makes you happy and simply be the truest version of yourself, so regardless of trends, you should wear what makes you comfortable! Still, dressing up in trendy rave wear is fun and part of the overall experience. Here are three must-have items that you should have in your rave wardrobe. They’ll provide the base for building a lot of fun rave outfits in the future.
Matching Bikini Set
A bikini set is a cornerstone outfit piece for any rave wardrobe. These can be worn on their own or layered under other items. You can wear them with just about anything, accessorize them in countless ways, and just make this simple set a part of your unique look. A rave-worthy bikini set is a great starting place for building your wardrobe, so be on the lookout for one that fits your overall aesthetic. You can find rave bikinis in metallic and glittery materials, more traditional-looking materials, and countless colors and patterns. Choose something that speaks to you but is neutral enough to work with many rave looks.
Rompers are another rave outfit staple for most ravers. While they’re not all mesh, looking for one made of a see-through material is a good way to start building your rave wardrobe. This opens up the opportunity for layering (possibly with that bikini set you just bought) to help create your own unique look, rather than relying on the romper alone for your entire rave outfit. Again, rompers can come in so many colors and styles, so find something you can wear in many situations and style in many different ways. And, of course, if the mesh doesn’t speak to you, find another romper material that does!
Finally, no rave outfit is complete without the right accessories. If there is one rave accessory every raver should have in their closet, it’s a pair of leg straps. This strappy little detail can spice up any rave outfit, adding an extra layer of style and sex appeal. It’s good to choose something relatively neutral, but don’t assume that only means black or white. Silver is another great option that will go with just about any rave clothing you may wear in rave wear. Pair it with a romper, bikini set, or both for a complete rave look that you can restyle and re-wear again and again.
