What Should I Wear to the Mardi Gras Party?Purple, green and gold are the three colors associated with Mardi Gras, dating back to the very first Mardi Gras celebrations. Each color has its own meaning, with purple representing justice, green: faith and gold: power. When participating in any Mardi Gras festivities, it is highly recommended that you wear one or all three of these colors. Also keep in mind that there is no such thing as wearing too much green, purple and gold, or too many accessories. When it comes to Mardi Gras—the more, the better!

Add a traditional piece of headwear, such as a crown, jester hat or masquerade mask. King’s crowns are one of the many symbols associated with Mardi Gras. This is because Mardi Gras celebrations began during the Medieval period when kings ruled most countries in Europe. Another Mardi Gras icon is the jester. Sport a fun and goofy jester hat that is sure to get you noticed this Mardi Gras season. If you would like to go the more understated route when it comes to headwear, try a colorful feather or sequin mask. Masks are a popular accessory worn at Mardi Gras celebrations due to the Masquerade Balls held for secret society members during the early ages of Mardi Gras.
