College nights here, music festivals there, rave parties everywhere. I guess it’s that time of the year where people are hyping themselves up for summer. Sinulog may have passed, but there are still other upcoming parties like ENGLICOM DLSU’s Jacko Wacko and Assumption College’s Radiate… which I bet will be super epic.
However, a big question comes to our mind: “What do I wear?!” yeah, I feel you. A lot of people have been asking me non-stop in my askfm for outfit ideas for rave parties. For me, if you’re going to a rave party you have to consider three things: comfort, heat, and impact.
Rave parties involve loads and loads of people and who doesn’t want to look good during a potentially super fun night, right? The challenge is balancing comfort and aesthetics because remember, rave parties include a lot of dancing and jumping up and down while you’re stuck between a crowd, which also crosses out the option of layering too much.
So here’s some outfit ideas for that wild rave night you’re looking forward to.
OUTFIT IDEA #1
Nothing says sexy better than black lace does but remember showing too much skin isn’t always sexy too! So cover up with a baseball shirt. The lace and baseball shirt also create a sense of contrast between girly and street.

OUTFIT IDEA #2
This outfit is for those who really don’t want to wear anything short for their bottoms. The rips on the jeans are enough for the leg flaunting part. Keep everything else plain and leave the statement making to your statement bralette. The red shoes also break the monochrome thing going on in this outfit.

OUTFIT IDEA #3
How about an all black outfit with a floral snapback as the main event? Also, instead of wearing the usual denim black high waist shorts, why not wear a leather one? The socks also add a little edge to the whole look.

OUTFIT IDEA #4
If there’s all black outfit, why not try all white too? Really turn heads with a cut-out tank like this and statement cap. A guy actually used my cap (which looks exactly like this) as a conversation starter during unleashed 3. Set contrast by wearing a really dark lippie and add an extra flair with falsies!

If you’re not really the type who can wear skin exposing tops, other tops like ribbed crop tops, ringer shirts, cropped baseball shirts, and cut out tops with sleeves work too! Try other accessories as well such as knee high socks for major statement points. The possibilities are endless!
