2. Reggae Outfit Styles And Examples
What Are Reggae Outfits?
Whether it is Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Desmond Dekker, Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff, or any reggae artist they all gathered around this perfect energy of soft yet unstoppable force that is felt in both fashion.
Nowadays, both reggae music and reggae fashion have evolved over time into new styles (fashion here will be our focus).
We listed below 5 fashion styles from classic reggae style to boho reggae to denim, to sexy reggsual accessory styles that you can get inspiration from to create your personal outfit.
So what are those?
1) Reggae Classic Style
What we call the Reggae classic style is the obvious choice of heavily influenced colorful and loose-fitting style that mostly comes from African culture.
The main colors here are green, yellow, red, and black.
That said patterns are also quite common, those patterns can be African patterns or simply abstract patterns that you like.
Even though some people could say that black is not part of the original colors, they can’gue that it is present in most reggae classic fashion.
So for the ladies or for guys, if you want to fully go for this style simply wear any loose-fitting clothes with those colors or patterns no matter the piece of clothing, and you will go to go!
2) Boho Reggae Style
As we said, things have evolved over the year and as reggae music brings this peace, freedom, and simplicity into the world, boho did not have any problem making his place in the reggae universe.
For the ladies, we find boho pants or a simple dress for the bottom along with crochet tops or cute kimonos for the tops.
For guys, we also find boho pants or shorts with white shirts or one-color shirts or t-shirts.
3) Denim Reggae Style
Denim definitely has its place as it is usually what people wear for most concerts and festivals.
For the ladies, we have classic denim shorts or jeans for the bottom and some go with double denim with denim jackets (could be colorful or jean color) or they wear a colorful t-shirt or tank top for the top.
For guys, it is going to be either denim shorts or jeans for the bottom and a graphic tee, or a tank top for the top.
4) Sexy Reggae Style
We are not going to lie, this style brings a bit of ravey vibration to the look.
This usually is a mix of sexy and colorful.
For the ladies, it is going to be colorful short shorts or skirts (which could be accompanied by some fishnets as well) with a colorful top for the top.
Do not go overboard with neon colors or LED lights you don’t want your outfit to pop too much.
For guys, it comes down to short shorts or tight pants, with colorful tank tops or fishnets tank tops.
5) Casual With Accessory Style
Casual style with accessories will be the style that people go to when they do want to fit in but don’t want to spend too much time on their outfits.
The idea is simple, whether it is for women or men, it is to go to the festival or concerts the way you are, and add one or more accessories that have those famous green, yellow, red (and black if present) colors to your outfit.
It could be as simple as a pin, a hat, socks, a t-shirt, a bandana, a bracelet, a necklace, hearings, glasses, basically anything that brings back those reggae colors, and you’re all set!
3. Reggae Festival And Concert: What Not To Wear?
Reggae festivals and concerts are one of the most welcoming environments on the planet.
So even though people will never ask you to leave for your outfit there are still some styles or types of clothing that are better to avoid if you don’t want to feel out of place.
Even though you could definitely find some leather outfits that could work for a reggae look, leather clothing is not the dominant style in reggae fashion.
Again some can pull it off if they have the right accessories; otherwise, there are other types of clothing that will be better to work with for your reggae outfit.
All Black Or All White
Reggae music is a vibration of color and the colors are known, those colors are green, yellow, red, and black, so going all black or all white is missing the point of the colorful moment reggae creates.
So, all black or all white is really not the best idea if you want to immerse yourself in the crowd and vibe with the rest of the people.
Again, reggae events are really welcoming so no one will ever tell you to leave if you are wearing sportswear.
Even though it makes sense to wear it, as during festivals and concerts people sweat a lot, sports energy is not the actual feel of the moment.
The main idea behind this is that sport is for active exercise while the spirit of reggae is quite different.
Reggae vibration is not about exercise but rather letting yourself and your heart go with the flow and be part of the rhythm of freedom and peace.
Onesies would be a better fit for raves.
While Reggae events are festive moments and people could be happy to see someone wearing a colorful onesie costume, their style does not really match the energy of reggae.
Reggae and bright colors do go together but there is somehow a limit to that statement.
For instance, pink, blue electric, or even purple are not really the colors you would expect for a reggae show.
So keep up for colorful outfits and bright colors but don’t go overboard with the concept.
