Idea 6: How to dress for a Mardi Gras parade
You’ll need a look that you can put on parade, whether you’re catching beads on Bourbon Street, hopping the clubs and pubs, or hosting your own Mardi Gras ball. While looking fashionable is always important, make sure you'll be comfortable enough for each event.
If you're participating in a Mardi Gras parade, wear sunscreen and use a themed parasol as part of your outfit to protect your skin. Pack a jacket if you can, since inclement weather is likely during Mardi Gras season. Store your belongings in a fanny pack at your waist to keep things close at hand, and wear comfortable shoes.
The key to the perfect Mardi Gras parade outfit is finding accessories that are comfortable *and* cute. One example is a bustle, which makes it easy to get that insta-worthy look—just attach and go, and you’re ready to march to your own Mardi Gras beat.
