The 2023 festival season is upon us, and it's time to start thinking about what to wear to stand out from the crowd. If you're looking to add a bit of sparkle and shine to your festival outfit, but also want to be seriously comfortable - look no further than Sparklebutt.
Our products have been designed and tested by party people, for party people in the fields of UK festivals. We know the average festival-goer is time poor and don't have the time to make your own festival outfit, but you also want to look like you've made an effort - wegotchu! In this blog, we'll take a look at how to wear some of Sparklebutt's most popular products, and provide some mens festival outfit inspiration.
1. Sequin Shorts
For those who want to show a little more leg, our sequin shorts are super comfortable and easy to style with everything! Perfect if you're going to a festival somewhere warm like Coachella or Burning Man. We have LOADS of customers purchase our shorts for Pride events around the world, New York Pride, London Pride, Amsterdam Pride and Milkshake Festival are all sequin shorts friendly festivals and events! The sequin shorts are also perfect for The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras!
Sequin shorts are an easy way to add some serious shimmer and shine to your festival outfit with minimal effort. Our Sparklebutt sequin shorts come in a range of colours and are covered in thousands of shining sequins. They're perfect for pairing with a black or white t-shirt or tank top - or for the really bold pair with our sheer T-Shirts.
For a more colourful look, pair with an open vintage shirt or vintage dressing gown/ duster coat. Add plenty of accessories, some colourful sunglasses and a hat. Throw on your most comfortable trainers or festival boots and you're ready to go.
2. Sequin Party Pants
Our classic party pants are designed by party people, for party people. The two way stretch fabric means you can dance till your hearts content and you won't bust a seam on these bad boys! They have pockets(!) for your treasures and are fully lined with a soft fabric so they're not going to give you any sparkle-cuts.
Our party pants are better for festivals that are a little colder than the above. They're the PERFECT choice for your Glastonbury outfit or Secret Garden Party look. Any of the UK festivals really. The comfortable mens leggings perfect for making a statement and standing out in the crowd with minimal effort.
To style your party pants, you could keep the rest of your outfit simple. Pair them with a basic t-shirt or tank top and trainers for a comfortable and casual look. For a more dressed-up/ bold look, pair your party pants with an open button-down shirt, a mesh tank top, a vintage dressing gown/ duster jacket - or go full out and get a cape! Alternatively, no top at all is always welcome ;)
Remember, the key to pulling off our sequin pants at festivals is to be comfortable and embrace the attention! You will become a human disco ball, remember, so you choose how wild you go for the rest of your outfit.
3. Group Outfits
If you're too shy to don sequins alone, get your pals together and create a team outfit out of our sequins! Our gender neutral designs mean that anyone and everyone in your group can join in on your festival team costume! So. Much. Fun.
Here are some reasons why we think you should wear Sparklebutts as a group costume this festival season.
It's a great way to stand out in a crowd! Festivals can be crowded, and it can be hard to spot your friends in the sea of people. But if you're all wearing Sparklebutt gear, you'll be easy to find and you'll definitely turn heads.
It's liberating to break out of your comfort zone. Wearing Sparklebutt shorts or leggings is a way to express yourself proudly!
It's just plain fun. Festivals are all about having a good time, and Sparklebutt gear is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and the faces of those around you. ESPECIALLY if you do it as a crew!
