If you're at an all-day electro fest like Ultra Music Festival, then you have to dress the part. And this weekend, we saw it all. A dude dressed like Waldo, guys in latex, girls wearing little more than body paint, etc., etc., etc.
But our favorite rave regalia accessory was the furry boot. Why? Because it protects the lower half of the leg from (a) dust, and (b) other people's dirty feet stepping all over your shit.
From the youngest high school ravers to seasoned pookie heads, furry boots were this year's must-have item. We spotted them at every stage, every Porta-John line, and everywhere in between. Go see Crossfade's Fashion Freakouts at Ultra for further reference. And then check out a few of the raver girls we saw rocking the season's hottest, fuzziest accessory.
