Top 10 Festival Outfit Essentials of 2020


| March 07, 2019

Like any year, we saw the good, the bad and the ugly in festival wear trends. Flower crowns have officially died (or we at least hope so) and the fanny pack has made a graceful re-debut into mainstream glory. Meanwhile, there are still a few headdress-wearers that don’t realize cultural appropriation isn’t cool anymore.

On the bright side, rave wear has not only grown increasingly stylish, but also diverse since the mega-PLUR days of the early 2000s, so you no longer have to show up to a festival looking like you got fully dipped in a pot of rainbow punk soup..or you totally still can...pssst, we appreciate all styles.

Whether you are rainbows and butterflies or an all black techno babe, iEDM is here with festival clothing picks for everyone. We have tons of festival clothing and accessory staples that really took the cake and are likely to stay essentials in the years to come.

Perfect to wear on their own and even better for mixing-n-matching - check out our picks for Top 10 Festival Outfit Essentials of 2020.


10. Pixel Pro LED Googles

We all know glasses, goggles and the bunch have quickly risen to be one of our most loved festival essentials and for all the reason. It’s the easiest, most fool-proof way to instantly make your rave outfit better, no matter how non-existent it is. These glasses ARE your outfit, not to mention your face will basically provide a light party to both you and everyone within your vicinity. Get ready to make a lot of friends.

9. Colorful Hoodies

Hoodies are an all-time essential to well...LIFE. And clearly, a festival calls for your craziest, most colorful hoodies. iEDM has hoodies that will never crack or fade in the wash because of the high-quality material and our all over sublimation printing technique.

8. Light Up Hoodies

The light-up hoodie is for those making the foray into glow wear. Great as a tasteful hoodie upgrade that says “hey, I’m PLUR too” without shoving it down everyone’s throat. Also, awesome for stealing the outfit spotlight once the sun goes down and being awarded best dressed at the festival from sundown to closing. All you need is light up shoes to match.

 7. Joggers

Going to a camping festival? This is your calling. Getting down and dirty? Also, your calling. Trying to avoid mosquito bites? Not 100% guaranteed. In all seriousness, joggers are the real winners. Comfortable, stylish and socially acceptable, these are glorified sweatpants that look awesome for any occasion.

6. Rave Rompers

Rave rompers also know as bodysuits have consistently remained a hot essential because of the numerous looks you can achieve with them. Wear them alone as a simple one-piece, pair it with a floor-length kimono or a fur shrug, or fix a tutu over it. Different, interesting cut-outs make for unique outfits too. Even simple, solid color bodysuits make it look like you've put in effort with one simple outfit pick.

5. Light Up Sneakers

Guaranteed way to jazz up any festival outfit. More importantly, a necessity for any shufflers out there who are gonna put in some footwork at those late-night sets. Overall, real fun.
