What are the Origins of Rave Fashion?
Evolving significantly in recent years, rave fashion originated in the early 1990s and continued through to the early 2000s. Starting in LA with influences in hip hop culture, rave fashion boomed everywhere and it's back for 2022! With the rise in Y2K fashion, there was no doubt club kid wear would make its way back around.
What is Rave Fashion?
With the likes of cropped tanks and tees, platform sneakers and boots, beads, loud makeup styles, pigtails, space buns, coloured hair, pastels, bright colours, caps, bucket hats, headbands and so much more, with the club kid look, pretty much anything goes. With fast fashion getting their hooks into anything that’s on trend, we have seen a boom in holographic pieces and strappy tops in these stores. This evolution of rave fashion has altered the original club kid look with a modern take that's still fitting to this style but adds a hefty price to our planet. Ensuring you add your own vibe and flair, vintage fashion makes creating a rave look easy, without adding to your carbon footprint.
How to Style Rave Fashion
The club kid look is one of the easiest to style as pretty much any piece suits. Add some colour, funky items and bold hairstyles to make anything work in this adaptable style.
Retro Tees with Fun Graphics
Vintage and retro tees are perfect for styling rave fashion. With their loud graphics featuring funny sayings and bold colours, a vintage tee ticks all the club kid fashion boxes.
