What to wear at Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras was incredible. I did separate post on the parade and also the city but I thought it would be useful to do a short what to wear guide since I had no idea at all before I got there and I hate not knowing what to pack.

It was hot and varied between feeling quite sticky in the day and a bit chilly in the evening. Temperature wise it varied between 20- 37 degrees Celsius so come prepared. I ended up wearing patterned maxi skirts with vests, leggings with long tunic style tops and jeans with vests and a light cardigan on the colder days. In terms of Mardi Gras itself you can wear anything you'd like.

Other people were wearing things like:
Bodycon skirts with t-shirts,
Headdresses and masks,
Crazy facepaint/glitter
T-shirts and shorts
Essentially just go in whatever you like and you will 100% fit in.

Even the buildings are decorated as much as the people:
