Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras ||

The party of the year is here! And on Saturday evening the Canfield Casino will be overflowing with feathers and sequins. Bright, bold glittery masks will be gathered around the bar and the aroma of Hattie’s southern cuisine will be wafting through the ballroom.

Styling tip || What to wear to Mardi Gras?

I love a theme party. It allows us to be a little more playful when getting ready for an event. It also offers a sense of camaraderie among the attendees. So what do you wear to this weekend’s festivities?

Below are some of my picks for a Madri Gras theme party.

Sequins dress or pants

Feathers – adorned on a skirt, dress, or blazer

Deep, rich floral prints

A fringe dress or fringe wrap

A velvet suit or a velvet dress

Rich, bold colors (emerald, gold, purple, and burgundy)

When all else fails, pick up a mask at Pier One Imports, throw on your black cocktail dress, a pair of heels and you will be good to dance the night away.

I hope to see you all tomorrow!
