The 50s and the 60s birthed the idea of summer music festivals, and even then, people would love to dress up in unique and quirky outfits. It was a place where you could do anything, wear anything and listen to all kinds of music. At the time, that kind of freedom was not something everyone would approve of. Fortunately, these days, people have become much more accepting of other people’s opinions, which is why such festivals have become so common.
Today, you can go to Coachella, Lollapalooza, Primavera Sound, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and a lot of other events that can deliver you that kind of experience we just talked about.
However, you can’t just go to Coachella with one pair of clothing and expect that it will be enough for an entire week of music, drinking, dancing and having fun with your friends. You will need to bring your essentials such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and shampoo. But, you are not done. It’s not just about keeping up your hygiene, you will also need to stay warm throughout the nights and cool during the day all while looking your best. Your outfits need to be unique, and it needs to show off just how ready you are to go wild and party during the festival.
Here are some things you must wear to a summer music festival to give you an idea of how you should pack.
1. Flare pants
It might not be that obvious, but flare pants have been making a comeback these last couple of years. This style was very popular in the 70s but was quickly replaced just a few years into the 80s. But, what time is better to experiment with your outfits if not during an event such as Lollapalooza or Coachella, right? It is important that you like the look you have made and you shouldn’t care about what anyone else thinks about you. You are not going there to get judged but to have a good time.
Not only flare pants look straight awesome, but they will also keep you cool under the scorching hot sun in the summer days. They are also quite light and give you enough leg room so you can dance comfortably. Combine these with a crop top and you will finish your 70s look.
2. Loose pants
If flare pants keep you cool while giving you the ability for free movement, a pair of loose pants made from cotton or linen will make you feel like you are floating in clouds. They are so soft and so loose that you will feel like you are not wearing anything. The lightweight fabric is breathable and is best used for occasions such as this. Whether you decide to do yoga in the mornings, dance during the day, or using them as pajamas while camping in your tent at the festival, you will always feel comfortable.
Don’t forget that they also complement the summer music festival look because they are usually made with many vibrant colors. The loose pants can be combined with anything you can think of, but we think that a tube top would look the best.
3. Combine mesh with everything
You have been working throughout the entire year and this music festival is finally the time to let yourself go and give up on all of your worries. At least, for a couple of days. So, you shouldn’t really care about how others perceive you or how much skin you are showing. Be who you want to be and dress the way you want to.
People that have experience with this kind of raves love to combine a mesh top with a bralette or sometimes without one. You can also wear a tank top over or under it, it is your choice. If you are looking for a rave and festival clothing store where you can find this type of outfits, you should check out iheartraves.
The mesh will cover just enough skin (if you do not want to show too much), but the mesh is so breathable, you won’t break a sweat even after dancing for several hours.
You even have the choice of wearing mesh pants with a pair of lingerie panties or a thong.
4. Shorts and pasties
If you want to show even more skin and feel freer then ever, then why not get rid of the mesh, tank top or the bralette completely? Just put on a pair of rave shorts or whatever kind of shorts are your favorite and use pasties. What’s great about pasties is that they only cover the most important parts of your body and they are so customizable. If you plan your rave adventure early, you can order custom pasties. They can come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colors and they can be in neon colors too.
You can’t claim that you are a raver if you haven’t brought a ton of accessories to wear while you are out on the dance floor. In every video regarding a rave culture, you will see everyone wearing necklaces, Kandi bracelets, earrings, sunglasses and a bunch of other stuff that fulfill the look of the rave.
If you forgot to pack this kind of accessories, you do not have to worry because you will probably find hundreds of vendors where you will be to find all kinds of stuff. Many of them will offer to make you Kandi bracelets.
6. Comfortable shoes
You need to remember that you will be dancing at least five or six hours every single day while the festival or rave lasts. This should tell you that you must pack a pair of comfortable shoes otherwise your feet will be very sore. Of course, you can also pack a pair of heels that will complement your sexy look, but you will also need a pair of sandals or other types of breathable shoes such as sneakers.
