Technically it’s four, because there’s two casual ones, but whatever. Mardi Gras is Tuesday, March 5th this year, but every year it’s a great excuse to get all dressed up and go out on the town. I thought it would be fun to put together some outfit ideas to inspire your evening.
For Cocktail Parties Or Dancing
I love bandage dresses because they provide some shape and structure without a lot of fabric or any actual boning. I thought this dress in this orchid/plum purple looked great with some gold and green accents, and it’s perfect for hitting a cocktail party. Pair it with some loose waves and you’re good to go!
For a Dive Bar With Friends
These outfits are similar but just a bit different, and would be comfortable and fun if you’re in for a more relaxed evening. The eye makeup is fun and unique, and in keeping with the general Mardi Gras theme, but the jewelry is simple enough not to look overdone.
For the Formal Event
Maybe you’re going to some major shindig on Mardi Gras, like a benefit or a wedding. In that case, this look is the one for you. The mixed stone necklace is stunning, and works perfectly with the bold v-neckline, and the mask is feminine and elegant.
What do you think? Do you have plans for Mardi Gras? What are you wearing?
