We don’t know about you but we are getting carnival feet over here at CFL towers. We’ve got the tunes banging on our retro CFL ghetto blaster and we’re ready to get our ‘wine’ on over the weekend!

 With the help of the Collyer Twins of Banana and Laces, we went down to Oxfam to get ourselves kitted out for carnival!

Carnival Style Ideas

1) Make a feather crown – this one was an adapted bra carnival costume piece that we discovered in Oxfam Dalston! We simply used string to make a crown!

2) Start your look with a graphic print top or jackets that screams that you’re rave ready. Team with a paired back print tee and finish with relaxed footwear that will be comfy enough see your dancing feet through to the close of the carnival.

3) Go all out on the brights – stick with primary colours to keep things simple if you’re a ‘clashing brights novice’

4) Channel your urban diva in denims, chunky jewellery and a motif oversized sweat that you can tie round your waist when you;re ready to throw out some shapes.
