If you were going to a rave in the early 90s what would you wear?

Particularly if you were quite old and fat (so no neon bras).

Depends where...
Varying options but - this country, dungarees, kickers, aceeeed style top (smiley face, hoody)
option 2, Ibiza - v small cut offs, vest, whistle.

Option 2 not so great for the quite old and fat bit.

I was thin in the 90s but have no recollection of actual clothes. Just some really really good nights out!

A Global Hypercolour t shirt
A kangol hat
Stonewashed jeans

Boiler suit and a polystyrene mask smeared with Vicks Vaporub.

Mitchy1nge Wed 19-Feb-14 19:46:20

not very much, harem pants or a very small skirt and a bra

nothing has changed at all blush

Mitchy1nge Wed 19-Feb-14 19:46:57

southeastastra Wed 19-Feb-14 19:48:14

afaik people just wore jeans and t shirts.

ThatBloodyWoman Wed 19-Feb-14 19:48:15

Combat trousers and vest.

southeastastra Wed 19-Feb-14 19:48:41

not kangol kickers!

90s weekend. I have deja vu. I think i asked this very same question about a week ago. Might have been after wine which is why i can't remember the answers.

killed too many brain cells during the real 90s

Showy Wed 19-Feb-14 19:51:12

A t-shirt saying 'I don't belong here' and some comfy pants. Maybe a pipe.

Fat trainers (Reebox Pump or Air Max 90s), leggings/dungarees, some kind of baggy tie dyed T shirt. A kangol hat. Sunglasses.

FabULouse Wed 19-Feb-14 19:51:41

Combat trousers, kicks and vest or t shirt

FabULouse Wed 19-Feb-14 19:52:11

Oh yes air max 90s <drool>

kelper Wed 19-Feb-14 19:52:46

southeastastra I just read that as kangol knickers!
I reckon an acid smiley tshirt and shorts. Short shorts. Raves used to get super hot

persimmon Wed 19-Feb-14 19:53:55

Indie kid, so Cure t-shirt and green Doc Martens. hmm

LynetteScavo Wed 19-Feb-14 19:54:05

I wore DM's black leggings and over-sized off the shoulder tops.

But I thought I was particularly individual and cool, and this is not what anybody else was wearing. grin

Preciousbane Wed 19-Feb-14 19:54:26

Jeans, black lace wonder bra with t.short removed and tucked in to my jeans back pocket whilst dancing on a podium blush

Mitchy1nge Wed 19-Feb-14 19:55:10

Oh yeah sunglasses for when the strobe is just too much

is it indoor or out?

Preciousbane Wed 19-Feb-14 19:55:37

Sorry that should read t.shirt.
Other outfit of choice was Lycra hot pants and flowered blouse tied up.

MrsBungle Wed 19-Feb-14 19:57:52

Oh god, my raving outfits were horrendous!

I had a particular favourite swim suit material type crop top. I wore that with black hot pants and my favourite schu pay work cork platforms! I don't believe I could get my arm in the leg of those hot pants nowadays sad

MrsBungle Wed 19-Feb-14 19:58:34

Patch work platforms that should say. I did love those.

SundaySimmons Wed 19-Feb-14 19:58:41

Not the 1990s, but late 80s I wore reebok hi tops, hideous leggings in either black or white that were shorts! And crop tops that were purple or floral. My hair was long and permed and pulled up at the sides so I had a huge poodle top knot making my hair even bigger!

MrsBungle Wed 19-Feb-14 20:01:18

Just remembered my purple lace wonder bra. I have a right cheek tutting at the girls I see out on a Saturday night - they are practically totally covered up compared to my wonder bra and hot pants.
