Ultra 2015's Best and Worst Fashion Trends

Written by Kat Bein.

There have been a lot of changes at Ultra Music Festival.

The audience is over 18 now. And many of rave culture's familiar accoutrements -- finger gloves, glow sticks, rage totems, etc. -- have been banned under the fest's new Prohibited Items policy.

There are those of adult age who still cling to the furry-boots-and-tutu combo (essentially the boring, basic Barbie costume of the EDM age), but lots of party people took some serious sartorial risks at Ultra 2015.

Some of these experiments proved adorable, some of them not so much. We prowled the festival grounds, camera in hand, looking for the best of the best and a bit of the worst.
