What to Wear: Mardi Gras

By Lizzie Sexton

Next stop, NOLA.

Grab your beads and pack your bag because it’s Mardi Gras! For those of you headed down to the great city of New Orleans for this high holiday, I hope you’re prepared. And if you’re not, look no further. Here are some outfits to get you in the Mardi Gras spirit! And don’t forget: go big or stay home.

Outfit #1:

I feel as though I should preface: Mardi Gras fashion is nothing short of insane. So, when curating your outfits, add personal embellishments to make certain your outfit is as elaborate or as tame as you feel fit. 

On that note, this first outfit is relatively mild compared to what you’ll see on Bourbon Street this fateful weekend. These flashy pieces from Edikted are sure to turn heads. 

Edikted, Sabina Low-Rise Mini Skirt, $25.20

Edkited, Mia Faux Fur Knitted Off Shoulder Top, $32.80

Edkited, Safety First Earrings, $2.80

Outfit #2:

A pop of color in a monochrome moment can definitely make just as much of a splash. This Michael Costello x Revolve jumpsuit is sure to win over more than enough beads.

Michael Costello x Revolve, Livie Jumpsuit, $181

Ettika, Butterfly Body Chain, $85

Outfit #3:

And, finally, one can never go wrong with a little green dress. 

 h:ours, Trisha Mini Dress in Green, $41

8 Other Reasons, Jeweled Drip Earrings, $119

Good luck out there in NOLA and remember: whoever has the most beads by the end of the weekend takes the (king) cake!
