You know trini love to party and our favorite feteing period is finally here!!! The time to “palance”, a verb that has been recently use by many due to the popular hit by JW and Blaze, means time to lime or “movements” commonly used by the “Critz crew”. Carnival, the most highly anticipated time of the year by the majority is finally in season along with many preparations, most importantly being your imagine. How does one portray themselves at the major all inclusive fetes and other popular parties. What you wear and how you wear it tells a lot about your personality and character. In this article are some useful tips I would like to refer as “Carnival Accessories Round-up”. Fashion trends, hairstyles, and beauty tips that are displayed by popular celebrities such as Rhianna, Miley, Beyonce, et al in 2k10. Most exhibiting an eclectric trend of punchy colours, graphic tees and a vintage look.
This year fashion trend consist of shimmering clothering, accessories, styles featuring gold, silver, bronze, metallic and sequin finishes. Along with these sequin finishes are satin dresses and skirts. This new shimmering look not only catch the eye but reflect light to enhance the body curves, giving off a sexy and femine look while adding splash and flair to any ensemble. Neon nails and make up weather lipgloss or eye shadow such as ultra violet or hot pink also go along with the entire elcentric look.
Some of my outfits in mind depend on where one intends to go. If on the street on a Carnival Friday evening watching kiddie’s carnival, I would suggest one wear a pair of those colored jeans. I have a light orange that I absolutely adore! And Dark tops, any dark color that would complement the color of the jeans. Black is safe. However if the jeans is a soft color as in aqua blue or what not a white plain tee would do, or one with those random prints to elevate the eclectric look. According to my boyfriend Jarryd, “its all about the graphics” lol. Girls we have some funky, playful colours printed on tees, choose a colour to dominate and use for your choice of accessories to enhance your look. For example, yellow hoops.
On the road Monday and Tuesday, all those “chipping on the pavement”, get the perfect shorts. I was thinking nothing to tight; you would be on the road all day and want to be comfortable. Those khaki/ plaid/ denim shorts, graphic tee or vest and invest and a very cool hat. Trendy and efficient. The hat has to be able to do his job. Shade you from that Sun. I saw really nice ones in Wonderful world; please remember to put on the stockings on display before trying on the hat. There are even more trendy ones in Eye Candy or New York upper level, Trincity (by the food court). Footwear, converse are my favorite but for those playing mass, flat boots is a must! That’s the style for all masqueraders 2k10. Very comfortable, very trendy! Also people, avatar shades are in, very stylish.
My look for the fetes were mostly Rhiana’s style, sported black the majority of the time “all black everything”, frequently leather. My liquid leggings are my favorite; there are also leather shorts and those with the sequins. I wore the sequin skirt with a semi-wide belt and black vest. Of course my necklace added spice to the vest, as it was in layers of silver and black chains with little hanging crosses. Accessories are very important in enhancing an outfit. Please remember that. Invest in your look. Pay attention to your appearance. Image is everything!!!
Well one and all have a safe carnival, please leave your valuables at home, it hurts when you lose something that you was so attached to. Take my advice; do without the bbm for just 2days. Go back old school!
Remember everything you do, do it in style and risk are there to be taken. Enjoy!!!
