Traditionally, raves are a place where people can be free to wear whatever they want. That's great! Except, not really, because they also make horrible fashion mistakes acceptable. And so you see Rastafarian colors mixed with nipple pasties mixed with Hello Kitty gear and tutus. You see Hindu symbols mixed with Native American headdresses, fuzzy boots and neon. And somehow people manage to be naked on top of all that.

Ack!

Below, we run down some specific raver fashion faux pas and tell you how to fix yoself.

Slutty + Cartoons = Just Stop

At raves these days the sexualization of beloved children's cartoon characters is in full effect; everyone from Minnie Mouse to Mario and Luigi is getting the "sexy" treatment. (No, seriously, we've seen this.)

We're glad you have a great bod, but putting the faces of animated icons on your ta-tas sends a confusing message.

Maybe you were into wearing Hello Kitty tees as a toddler, but doing so in bikini form just makes it look like some perverted fantasy.

Our advice

There's a way to do this that's a bit more discrete. Check this outfit out. It says, "I'm whimsical and fun" and leaves it at that.
