When you go to a rave, you choose to dive headfirst into an amazing collision of music, dance, and style. It’s inevitable you’ll be surrounded by a myriad of fabulous outfits. Among them is one trend thats owning the spotlight and making bodies of all shapes and sizes look fire as they dance the night away. Surprise (or probably not surprise) its Catsuits! These curve hugging jumpsuits are claiming their spot on the dancefloor (and in your closet) in an unapologetic way. We love this dance-friendly ‘fit choice as a surefire way to show up slaying- sleek and sexy. And not to be insufferably cheesy… but catsuits really do have a way of luring out your inner party animal. Anyway, we get it, jumping into this trend might seem like a wild ride, but don't sweat it. We've got your back with a wicked checklist... Here is everything to consider for rocking your rave bodysuit outfit:
Embrace Layers (& Let Layers Embrace You!)
This one is a tip that hits marks for both style and practicality purposes. Layers are a good idea for festivals and raves period– when the weather gets unpredictable, you wanna be prepared. And catsuits happen to be an awesome place to start when it comes to choosing a base that stands out on its own and is easy and fun to layer over. The sleek, body-loving pieces have a way of looking awesome with a variety of silhouettes paired over them. You can check out an assortment of awesome statement jackets from Love Khaos to find one that compliments your catsuit in all the right ways. Adding a kimono, rave hoodie, or light jacket can add versatility to your rave bodysuit outfit and help you to stay comfortable in unpredictable climates. They also have a way of adding an extra dimension to your outfit, especially if you pick fabrics that highlight whatever maximalist aesthetics you might be going for. Holographic fabrics, for example, can keep the rave vibes alive, or opt for reflective materials that dance along with the lights! Our ultimate favorite is pairing one of our women’s sequin jackets with a catsuit outfit.
Get Creative with Accessorizing
Catsuits are a fun, super hot way to show up to a rave– but they’re just one part of a complete, head-turning festival outfit. You’re never fully rave-fitted up without some epic accessories. It’s funny too– how a seemingly small detail can make all the difference. Start with a catsuit you love, and then try elevating the look by styling it with statement jewelry, funky hats, or other bold accessories that complement the outfit. We have a bunch of pieces to check out in our accessories and jewelry collection to complete the rave bodysuit outfit you imagined yourself strutting up to the dancefloor in. Those leather body pieces and fingerless gloves add a really cool edge. Or if you’d like a finishing touch that helps your catsuit outfit read a bit more boho, we recommend reaching for some fringe! Remember, the key is to have fun and let your imagination run wild!
Practical Footwear: Strut Your Stuff in Style and Comfort!
That catsuit is going to make you feel like a baddie on the dancefloor. Full stop. But keep in mind, when you’re dressing for a rave, you have to think carefully about every detail: head to toe. And pay extra special attention to those feet. You’ll want to choose footwear that will keep you comfortable for hours of dancing and walking around festival grounds. Raves involve hours of non-stop dancing and navigating through vibrant crowds, so choosing the right shoes is essential to ensure you're not left limping before the night's end. Opt for comfortable and supportive footwear that matches your catsuit's style. Stylish sneakers or platform boots with cushioned soles are excellent choices that provide both comfort and a touch of edginess. We personally love adding a comfortable combat boot to rave bodysuit outfits– maybe with a solid platform for a bit of a boost if you’re short. Avoid heels or sandals that might leave your feet exposed to the hustle and bustle of the rave scene. At the end of the day, the goal is to find footwear that doesn’t stand between you and the time of your life. After all, the best raves are the ones where you can dance freely and confidently without a care in the world!
The Thing About a Catsuit…
Okay okay, let’s get real: catsuits- like jumpsuits, rompers, onesies, or really any rave bodysuit- are super cute and make all the sense in the world until you get down to some of the functional details. The good news is we thought them all through, so whatever it is you think you’ll practically need, we might still have the perfect garment for you. Restroom breaks, for example, (while maybe not what you think of while imagining yourself at a rave) are something to consider before you arrive. Look for our catsuits with zippers that zip all the way around so you can pee easily without stripping all the way down. If that’s your pick, we recommend some dress rehearsals: practice zipping and unzipping efficiently to make restroom breaks hassle-free. On that note, if having a couple of small things quickly on hand is a priority for you, some of our catsuits have sneaky hidden pockets in the back. Or, if you’re expecting really hot weather, we would definitely urge you to opt for the reflective fabrics or catsuit outfits with mesh paneling to keep cool through all that dancing.
Turn it Up a Few Notches: Roar with Prints and Patterns!
Perhaps the best part… you’re at a rave! Catsuit outfits are already a bold choice, so why not crank the maximalism to 11? Your imagination when cooking up a rave outfit should be boundless! Don't shy away from bold prints and bright colors. This is a perfect, high-spirited space to experiment with your style– trying different prints or colors and pairing them together to stand out from the vibrantly expressed crowd. Let your creativity roam free and don't be afraid to mix and match with pieces from our wild animal prints to eye-catching photo bomber pieces!
Make it a Party
It’s an exciting challenge to try to make a fashion statement at a rave where bold, stylish, expressive ‘fits are the norm. But if you’ve ever seen a whole group of friends roll up to a rave in stylish, individualized, yet perfectly coordinated ensembles, you might know what an epic layer it can add to the bright atmosphere. Raves are all about sharing unforgettable experiences with friends, and what better way to amplify the fun than by coordinating your outfits? Whether you choose to match each other's outfits or embrace a group theme, dressing up together will prove that when it comes to creating that communal rave energy, there really is power in numbers. For a matching look, pick a color scheme or a specific pattern and let everyone put their unique spin on it with different catsuits, accessories, and footwear. Maybe your bestie wears the two-piece-set equivalent to your rave bodysuit outfit. We might even have meggings to match the fabric and style of your catsuit outfit. It's a great way to stand out as a cohesive crew while celebrating your individuality. Coordinating your rave outfits with friends is not only an expression of unity, but it's also a way to create memories that will have you reminiscing for years to come! That said… if you do choose to go down this path, get ready to own the rave scene together, and don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Embrace that Feline Power
Lastly and probably most importantly: this is your reminder that anyone can rock a catsuit. The most crucial element of styling a catsuit at a rave is not the accessories or layers – it's your loving self-confidence! We know rave bodysuits might feel intimidating, but when you put them on, they can also have the ability to be wildly empowering. We hope they give you permission to truly embrace your body, whatever its shape and size, and let that inner goddess and gorgeous feline power radiate across the dance floors and festival grounds. Raves are all about expressing freely, and catsuits make such an awesome canvas to celebrate your stunning self. After slipping into the rave bodysuit outfit that makes you feel like the sexiest version of yourself, all that’s left is to dance like nobody's watching and strut with pride as the fierce and fabulous human that you are.
So there you have it – a comprehensive guide to rocking catsuit outfits at raves the Love Khaos way! Embrace your creativity, experiment with layers and accessories, go wild with prints and patterns, think through the functional details, and above all, embrace yourself- body and spirit- with all the unapologetic joy you can find within yourself. Now, it's time to get out there, prowl the dance floor, and leave everyone in awe.
