YOUR CARNIVAL-INSPIRED LOOK FOR SS19
By Eleanor Dunne, 23 August 2019
Of course, if your Carnival itinerary involves actually dancing on a float, the traditional getup usually includes feathers and sparkles. But if you're planning the slightly more subdued option of shaking your stuff in the street to a sound-system, embrace the OTT vibe via a bold colour in a streamlined silhouette.
Take this Reebok dress – it's a sporty, laidback look that's loud and proud, tapping into the neon trend that’s (still) everywhere ATM. While you might usually pair a statement piece like this with a plainer shoe, now's the time to go for kaleidoscopic kicks like these Nike Air Max trainers – it is Carnival, after all. Plus, those cushioned soles are ideal for all that dancing you'll be doing. For an extra touch of glam, some hoop earrings and skinny shades will finish it off nicely. And, of course, a slick bum bag so you've got both hands to enjoy that delicious Carnival food gracefully. Ideal.
