Notting Hill Carnival is just days away and Team Sapelle can not wait! Before we throw ourselves head first into the carnival spirit, there’s the all important business of finding the perfect outfit. If you’ve been following our Facebook or Instagram, or indeed this blog, you’ll have noticed that we’ve been kind of enthusiastic about all things carnival. We think the perfect carnival look should be fun with a splash of colour and comfy enough to keep you dancing all day AND all night.
Here are seven gorgeous looks that will get you in the carnival spirit.
1. Crop top + shorts
Keep your cool in this simple combo. Team high waisted denim shorts with this gorgeous printed crop from Mafrika. Lift the whole look with statement earrings.
2. Shirt dress + jeans
Bring several servings of cool with this fun alphabet shirt dress from Afromania. Layer over jeans if the weather is a little cool.
3. Pool jacket + jeans
There’s nothing wrong with a classic jeans and white vest combo but why not jazz things up with a printed pool jacket like this one from Njema Helena. Don’t forget a large tote to carry all your carnival essentials.
4. Skater dress + backpack
Embrace the last days of summer in this cute Sapelle skater dress. Team with high top Converses and a backpack for a casual day look.
5. Crop top + black jeans
Planning on heading to a carnival after party? Then this is the look for you. A monochrome look will take you from day to night with very little effort. Pack a spare pair of heels in a leather shopper like this one from Chameleon Earth.
6. Midi skirt + crop top
Impress your carnival date with this flirty look. This gorgeous printed midi skirt is the perfect match for a fitted crop top. Keep things casual with a distressed denim vest.
7. Mini skirt + vest
Bring festival chic to carnival with this edgy look. A slogan tee teamed with a Tina Lobondi printed mini skirt is fun and a little unexpected. The statement lace up boots will come in handy if the weather turns.
