Mardi Gras 2013 Fashions

The season of Mardi Gras has drawn to a close after weeks of non-stop parties, parades, crawfish and hurricanes.  Revelers now settle in for the more quiet and reserved period of Lent (well some of them at least). But before we close the books on carnival, let’s take a look back at the fashions.  The colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold, but the attire goes far beyond tutus and striped polos.  For many of the season’s coronation balls, parties and gala, black tie is a must.

After scouring my Facebook feed, here are some of the hottest looks. Big trends included bold metallic colors including gold and silver, jeweled accents and ruched bodices.
