THIS (CARNIVAL) SEASON’S HOTTEST COLORS: PURPLE, GREEN & GOLD
Posted on February 22 2019
Does your closet need a freshen up from the blahs of winter?!?! There’s no better time than season to revive your closet with some festive color! Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the world, but as we know, the most exciting and fun outfits are found in New Orleans, Louisiana!
Mardi Gras colors – purple, gold and green – were introduced in 1872 when the first King of Carnival, Rex, presided over the first daytime parade. Gold stands for power, purple for justice, and green for faith.
So, add a little golden sparkle or a happy shade of yellow to your Mardi Gras wardrobe with a yellow skirt or bowtie. Skip the little black dress and try sewing one in an aubergine tone instead. Or choose the last signature color, green. This vibrant hue is a standout in any crowd no matter what you sew! Add one of your favorite masks and matching accessories, ahem, wig ;) to give your look that final festive touch.
