Summer is coming. And that means festival season is already here. The Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is approaching May 17-19th, and you’re so pumped getting ready to head to Las Vegas. If you’re one of the 300,000 people heading to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to dance your face off, see the sights and ride the rides, you probably have all of your essentials figured out - tickets, transportation, and hotel. Now, all you need to worry about is looking good and getting lit! Here’s our guide to the best festival outfit ideas so you can look and feel your best at one of the world’s biggest parties.
Extra Body Suits
Remember: Comfort is king. It doesn’t matter how good you look if your cheap Chinese harness is cutting off circulation to your torso. Body suits are a go-to. Stand out in the crowd with sequins, reflective or holographic fabric, neon colors, or plain black with all the right cut-outs. Pair with some rhinestone tights or layer over a rhinestone mesh dress for some added shine.

Hight waisted bottoms
They keep everything tucked in and are easy to layer. Cut up a rock tee or throw on a bra for an easy look. If you have time, order some patches, studs or rhinestones and super glue onto your favorite old bralette or bra.
Animal prints are trending and we love how the metallic finish pops.
Adhesive Face Jewels
We love following youtube bloggers that do EDC makeup looks, but let’s face reality. You’re camping or squeezed in a hotel with a bunch of friends. The last thing you have time for is the 4-hour mermaid glitter look. Fortunately, face jewels are THE easiest way to shine bright like a diamond and look EDC ready. The good ones come with a single adhesive on the back for easy application, so just stick them on your face and you’ll have everyone thinking you’re a makeup artist.
Metal Chain Clothing
Let your inner warrior rave princess come out by wearing festival clothing made from metal chains. It’s edgy and the perfect statement. I recommend layering them over something because after hours of sweaty dancing, the metal can be uncomfortable against our delicate lady parts. Make sure to accessorize with thematically appropriate pasties.
Let’s talk shoes. LET ME REMIND YOU THAT COMFORT IS KING. Reflective Shoes are a fun way to stay comfy and stand out. As much as we want to wear cute boots or a heeled shoe, your feet with thank you after putting on a pair sneakers. EDC is all concrete and over 12 hours of partying the average raver at EDC walks 15 miles over the course of a night!
These shoes are everything.
It cools down at night in Vegas and a light statement piece is a must. Never get lost from your friends with one of these light-up jackets. You can choose a signature style online or create your own design! You could get matching jackets for your whole squad. The jackets have 3 light modes and will be sure to get you noticed. 10$ of each online design goes to charity so you can feel and look good.
The Electric Lips jacket is a head turner.
Dear Men, we have not forgotten about you. Getting rave-ready without looking like a douche-canoe can be a challenge. So here are a few easy festival accessories that can stand alone or combine with pieces you may already own.
Sequins pants are for the confident guy.
Want to get away from the generic tank top? Let me introduce you to the RompHim. It’s a romper for men -- whats not to love? They come in loud fun prints and have all the style points of womens romper, except you don’t have to get naked to pee. It’s easy, breezy, not too hot and not too sweaty. The romphim just makes way more sense.

Now, consider that you’re in a crowd of 100,000 people. If you want to ever see your friends again, they’re going to need a way to find you. A neon light up jacket is perfect for the group leader or to stand out at EDC. Your friends will always find you in the crowd. Just like the women’s EDC light up jackets, men can choose a design online or create their own design.
