From parade watching to a Mardi Gras party, check out some of the best Mardi Gras outfits for women below and tips on how to accessorise your look to make it truly stand out.
Main Character Energy
One of the best things about Mardi Gras is the opportunity to have a little fun with your look to make sure all eyes are on you. Don't be afraid to experiment and step outside your comfort zone style-wise. Opt for striking plus size dresses, playsuits and jumpsuits in rainbow, a bold print or daring cutouts for effortless Mardi Gras outfits. Or turn up the volume by pairing a statement top with dramatic bottoms!
Wear The Rainbow
Be loud and proud this pride season! March to the beat of your own drum in vibrant shades that make you feel like your most true self. Try bold colours like pink, blue, orange, yellow, green or even the whole rainbow! You can choose to rock one bright colour or mix and match pieces to create a chic colour-block look. Check out our curvy plisse pieces for a vivid and textured statement.
Take inspiration from the iconic disco ball and shine as bright as your future! Embellish your stunning get-up with dazzling features like glitter, sequins, rhinestones and metallic elements. Whether you sparkle in a head-to-toe sequin 'fit or complete your look with twinkling gold or silver accessories, you're sure to turn heads. Discover the hottest plus size sequin dresses, glittering skirts and shimmering tops in our Glitz and Glamour edit to get the party started!
All In The Details
Get into the festive spirit by topping off your look with an array of flashy accessories. And when it comes to accessorising, the possibilities are endless! From statement gold jewellery and layered necklaces to glittery earrings, there are plenty of ways to make your look pop. A great way to add some extra personality or individuality is with elements like mesh gloves, rainbow socks, colourful makeup, wigs, wings, platform shoes, feathers, bedazzled sunnies - almost anything you like! Like they say: beads and bling, it's a Mardi Gras thing.
If you want to party it up in something a little more understated, consider incorporating some simple Mardi Gras-themed accessories into your look. A large necklace or a pair of dangly rhinestone earrings can be just what you need to add a touch of Mardi Gras flair. Or create a unique look with a statement top and a brown pleather skirt, or match sequin pants with a black crop top.
When it comes to choosing your Mardi Gras 'fit, comfort is key. Just like any festival, you'll want a 'fit that not only stands out, but is also comfy. After all, you'll be partying the night away, so you want to be sure that your outfit allows you to move and dance with ease. Consider fabrics like cotton or linen, which are soft, lightweight and breathable.
From watching the parade to dancing the night away, You + All Australia has you covered for any occasion. Shop our Mardi Gras edit to see the full range of fabulous outfits.
