Mardi Gras Fashion Trends

Mardi Gras is here! How many of you are going to a ball this year? Cherish Lombard says she went to her first Mardi Gras ball a couple of years ago and had no idea what to wear! She says she knew she needed a long formal dress, but didn’t know if it should be beaded, or have sequins, or if the color mattered, and none of us want to stick out like a sore thumb when we’re invited to a Mardi Gras ball. So this year, Lesia Warren from David’s Bridal brought some gowns to Studio10 to make sure we’re all on point this year!

Lesia says the hottest trends for the 2014 Mardi Gras Season are dresses that are figure flattering, sweetheart necklines, corals, blues, purple, gold and black. She says classic black is always in style. The dress she featured on Studio10 has a crisscross back, it’s sleeveless, and has plenty of beading that sparkles. She says the crisscross back is great for larger busts because it adds support.

Lesia says baby blue is a hot color this year, and it looks good on most skin tones. The dress she featured on Studio10 has lots of beading for shine, a sweetheart neckline, and it’s made of soft mesh that’s comfortable and figure flattering.

Lesia says florescent colors, especially corals, are also popular. She features a coral gown on Studio10 with sequins and beading details on the bust. This one has just enough sparkle to catch the eye.
