If you’re from or know anything about Louisiana, you know Mardi Gras is a HUGE deal. I’ve teamed up with Rent the Runway to bring you two looks to help you get inspired this Mardi Gras season!
The first look is for the dressier part of Mardi Gras, which would be for a formal ball.
For the formal outfit, I went for a sleek, all black look. There’s something so elegant about a head-to-toe black look. I love the pleat detailing of the dress and the modest, but still feminine and sexy silhouette, paired with the timeless & classic fur jacket. I added a little sparkle with the earrings, and finished the look off with the perfect clutch!
Most of the time, Mardi Gras balls are full of sequin dresses, which I love for special occasions. But the look I went for is mysterious, and I still would stand out, in a subtle way.
I’ve used the service Rent the Runway for many other occasions, and absolutely love it (click here to find out how RTR works, if you’re new to it). It’s an efficient and fast way to get the perfect outfit for any occasion.
Using RTR for occasions like a Mardi Gras ball is a great idea, because if you’re like me, I don’t have many super fancy events I attend, so I don’t have many formal options in my closet. I love it because you don’t have to make such a huge commitment of buying a dress then having it stuck in your closet, never to be worn again. The service is a fun way to give yourself the chance to branch out and try different styles. It’s also awesome because you get to choose dresses and accessories from amazing brands and designers that sometimes you might not get the chance to wear!
Mardi Gras will be here before you know it, so get a head start and make sure this Mardi Gras season you get glam from head to toe with Rent the Runway!
