Standing out when sitting down, Mardi Gras 2021 RISE 🌈
Living in the middle of a global pandemic hasn’t exactly been fun for any of us. Especially one that promotes social distancing and isolation in a world that is desperately in need of inclusivity and freedom of expression. But after a year of uncertainty, Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival is finally here to foster an all embracing culture of diversity, self expression and most of all, LOVE! And to say we’re excited would be a huge understatement. However, this year, the parade will be a seated event held at the Sydney Cricket Grounds focusing on the celebration of our pride in a safe way. At Peach Pops, we understand that the 2021 festival is going to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. We’ve got you covered with our carefully curated list of top Mardi Gras essentials to help you stand out while you sit down.
01. HATS & HEADPIECES, COLOUR, BLING AND ALL THE THINGS
There's no better way to accessorise your Mardi Gras outfit than with a multicoloured accessory. The top of you is probabaly going to make the cameras more than the bottom this year so…. get yourself adorned.
2. GLASSES THAT SCREAM LOVE
A pair of sunglasses that don't just add a pop of color to your outfit but also go with the pride theme are a must-have.
3.Trendy bum bag to keep all your essentials
We know what a pain it is to carry around a bag around during a festival. So do yourself a favour and get a funky bum bag so all you have to worry about during the parade is having fun!
4. Something fun to throw over your attire
If you're trying on your outfit and realise something's missing, it's probably glitter. Or a kimono. Or both!
5. A funky pair of comfy leggings
Make sure you have a something in your wardrobe that allows you to move around comfortably and still looks cool. A pair of cute tights could be exactly what you're looking for.
06. GET YOUR WINGS ON
It’s time to fly angels because we all need our wings !
