Is there a General Dresscode for Raves?

While there is no general dress code for raves, here are some things that you should consider when planning for one:

  • Weather:  Shivering has never been considered a dance, so dress according to the weather. If it's a day rave in the summers, wear light clothing with full sleeves. If it's a winter rave, wear full sleeved clothing, with an extra jacket or any other upper layer.
  • Flexibility:  Wearing clothes that are too tight will only limit your movements. Wear flexible and durable clothes that give you mobility, but aren't too loose. Most of the spandex dresses in our collections are very flexible and come in different sizes.
  • Durability:  Your dress should be durable enough to withstand to smooth moves. Wearing spandex or a high quality jersey is a good way to ensure durability. As an extra precaution, take some extra clothes with you for unforeseen circumtances.
  • Matching Shoes:  While a dress can elevate your style in a rave, mismatching shoes will only destroy it. Remember to wear appropriate and comfortable shoes with every dress. Some popular rave shoes include sneakers, combat boots, and welsie boots. As a general rule of thumb, avoid heels because they won't work for raves.

These are the general items that you should consider wearing to your first rave. However, this isn't everything, because there are tons of other accessories that can elevate and refine your rave clothes.

What Else Do You Wear To A Rave?

There are tons of small trinkets and additions that you can wear at a rave to feel more in tune with the environment. Here are some of the additional accessories that you can add to your rave outfit:

Neon Lights for the Sway

Neon Lights are a necessity at raves and EDM concerts. They come in all shapes and sizes, from sticks to wrist bands, and each one is equally enticing. Wear neon lights that match your outfit and dance to the beats as if you're in the vast expanse of space, surrounded by a million stars.

Body Paint to Paint the Town Red

Your arms may feel a bit empty when you're wearing sleeveless clothes. Fill the void with your favorite colors through body paint. It's temporary, fun, and gives you a whole new vibe according to your mood, especially if you paint it all yourself.

You can even get Face Gems and Bindis to give yourself a complete makeover. These trinkets can represent your inner gem of a soul on your physical body.

Kandis and Bracelets

Kandis and bracelets are a great way to accentuate your wrists and arms. You can find tons of Kandis and bracelets, including the Cinco Stone Bracelet , which goes well with light colors. Another great option is the Kai Cuff Silver Bracelet , which matches with almost any outfit.

Earplugs For the Extra Noise

Rave concerts are a lot louder and noisier, especially with all of the vibing fans. Having some ear plugs will muffle out all of the unnecessary noise. If you're having a headache, just pop in the ear plugs, and you can get back to vibing.

Sunglasses to Keep the Strobes Low

Rave concerts are known for their blinding, flashy lights, which may just irritate you when you're looking towards the stage. Wear some futuristic rave glasses to protect your eyes and keep your style intact.

You can try the exotic Xena Tribal Googles or the Umi Space Sunglasses . If you want to wear something simpler, go for standard sunglasses.

Hydration Packs Because Dehydration Kills the Vibe

When you bop around for hours, you're bound to feel dehydrated. Keep a hydration pack with you to get your electrolytes and energy levels back up again so you don't rave cough your lungs away. Ideally, you should keep an energy drink, water, and some oranges by your side to stay hydrated.

Fanny Packs for Some Portable Space

When you're enjoying the vibe, you might lose track of your pockets. Your phone or wallet could drop out, and your fun will be spoiled.

Having a fanny pack saves you from this unnecessary trouble, by keeping everything inside a safe zipper-locked space. Plus, it's a great fashion statement when you choose the right colors.


Rave culture is all about exploring your identity, and finding your chord in the noise. One way to express your individuality and uniqueness is through the clothes you wear. With the right rave attire, you can push the outer limits of your style beyond the boundaries of creativity.

With our rave outfit ideas, you can express yourself and become one with the very beats that permeate through the air. Order your rave attire today with Born In Stockholm and get guaranteed quality, along with the best prices. We have a full inventory of Rave Outfits waiting for you.
