Fun of The Fair – What To Wear For Carnival By Hannah Norman

SOL Face Tattoos

With our wintry wardrobes in desperate need of a summery overhaul, The Luxury Channel goes crazy for carnival colours and uplifting brights, as we bring you our guide to making a style statement this carnival season….


We love this Serena Orange Fever Skater dress by Skeena. The full skater skirt creates a flattering silhouette whatever your body shape, whilst the art deco print makes it party perfect.

Chelsea Paris

Crafted using traditional methods in Italy, these Mina Cranberry Mix shoes from Chelsea Paris tread an effortless line between on-trend desirability and timeless style. Inspired by both African culture and 1920s deco, these are surely the perfect pair to put on come carnival season.

Of course, no self-respecting fashionista worth her carnival salt would step out without a tote to sling all her valuables into. We like the varied, versatile range from MCM, but it’s the vibrant polka dot pattern that wins our vote!


Moda In Pelle

These stylish leather pointed court shoes by Moda In Pelle feature patchwork detailing with contrast textures, while the cut of the shoe flatters the leg. If you don’t mind wearing a higher heel, these chic shoes will invariably lift any outfit, carnival-themed or otherwise!


Kelly Simpkin

For those who want to really go all out for carnival, we love this couture creation from Kelly Simpkin. Flowing black organza is complimented with both leather and lace, whilst the pale gold stops this scallop bustier gown from looking gothic.

Chester Barrie

For the gents among you, we like this Chester Barrie handkerchief, made in soft linen. A bright colour and fun print mean you can comfortably work a carnival vibe without going embarrassingly over the top, plus you can make one hell of a sartorial style statement in the process.
