Fashion inspiration for the dance-party festival

The 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival takes over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend, which means more than 100,000 people are currently sharing one crucial thought: What should I wear?

At EDC, the options are practically limitless, though that seems to translate to a lot of neon, beaded jewelry and embellished underwear. Subtlety has no place at an all-night dance party.

Need more inspiration? These photos from last year's EDC should do the trick. And please, for the love of all things holy, wear comfortable shoes.

      The Classics

      When in doubt stick to classic pieces that have stood the test of time: furry boots, tutu, neon colors, suspenders.

      Daisy crowns and lensless glasses

      Because it's easier to literally represent Electric Daisy Carnival in your attire than Bonnaroo, Coachella or Outside Lands. And glasses with actual lenses would get fogged up in the middle of the dance scrum in front of Tiësto. And kandi beads. Duh.

      No shirt

      Because even Canadian bros like showing off their chests—and sweating all over each other. (Also, sweet fishnets.)

      Bridal lingerie

      This probably isn't what your mom had in mind when you said you were engaged, but EDC does offer legal weddings and vow renewals, as well as commitment ceremonies for couples and friends. This is Vegas, after all. Poorly thought-out weddings are what we do.

      Creepy contacts and glow gear

      Because where else can you dress like a radioactive comic book villain without getting weird looks?

      Bedazzled gas mask

      Because where else can you dress like apocalypse Barbie without getting weird looks? (Plus, all that glue-gunning took a long time.)

      Furry fetish gear

      It's hot in Vegas (yes, even at night), so if you want to dress like a Yeti, you'll probably need to dress like Yetis Gone Wild just to keep your body temperature at a reasonable level.

      Sexy clown gear

      Okay, these lovely ladies are working, but they look so damn cool that we wouldn't fault you for biting their style and showing up in something similar. Just be careful: It's a fine line between sexy clown and sad clown, or, heaven forbid, creepy clown.
