Music festivals aren't just for summertime. Although it still felt like summer as I traipsed to an autumn music festival in Santa Ana, California. A few weeks ago I was invited to attend Beach Goth 4, a two day music & more festival. The experience had its ups & downs, but one thing I truly enjoyed was looking at everyone's outfits & costumes. It was a Halloween festival after all; not everyone dressed in costume but they were dressed to impress. These are a few of my favorite fashion & style trends from Beach Goth 2015.

Beach Goth is a relatively new festival; it began in October 2012, lasted just one day, & only cost $15. Now the music shindig is in its fourth year of existence, lasts two days, & charges you $100. The lineup is more comprehensive & the artists are more well known. It's safe to say they've come along way in such a short period of time.

Those who attend are encouraged to go all out, wear funky outfits & costumes. There were a decent amount of people dressed up to the nines. I tried my best to dress stylish but comfortable since I had to do a lot of reporting & shooting for my blog. I'm sorry y'all; I was not able to get any outfit photos! I was running around from set to set, attempting to manage my way through the crowd. Plus, the sun sets so early now that it gives me less time to get an outfit photo.

Oh well. You live & you learn. I think if I were to go to Beach Goth next year I'd be able to manage myself a bit better. But that's wishful thinking. As with anything, you begin to understand a bit more about an experience once you go. Now I realize just how many people dressed up for this music festival. The fashion trends were all over the place & impossible to pinpoint.

But yeah these are a few of my favorite little details, fashion bits, & style trends from Beach Goth 2015. Personally, I would love to utilize the wonderful t-shirt layering in the photo above & create a sassy cool denim jacket with patches. Which of these trends is your favorite? Have you been to any music festivals this year? Who is the last artist you saw? :]
