Styling Men's Clothing For Mardi Gras
Styling for a Mardi Gras event is all bout one thing: flamboyance. If you're going to less formal event, then be prepared to see some of the wildest outfits you can imagine.
Color is going to be an extremely important aspect of your outfit, and most Mardi Gras outfits revolve around the interplay between three colors: purple, gold, and green.
Olive green is a particularly good shade to keep in mind here, since it's both appropriate for Mardi Gras and can easily be re-worn with other kinds of more casual outfits.
You don't have to dress in these colors, since Mardi Gras is all about the freedom to be how you choose, but ideally your outfit should incorporate at least 2 of these 3 colors in some fashion for a more authentic Mardi Gras experience.

Some men opt for a more lowkey solid black outfit, and then style this with the appropriate Mardi Gras styled accessories (like beads or masks). This is effective if you don't want to invest in clothing with the classic Mardi Gras colors, since it may be difficult to find situations to rewear them.
But the traditional Mardi Gras outfit will almost certainly be styled extremely brightly and will have very showy textures and designs, and will also make use of gold, purple, or green colors designs.
Try a purple or green blazer or suit jacket styled with no tie, and pair it with a your choice of color in dress pants and gold colored loafers.
If you're really feeling crazy, try a pair of spiked Venetians, for a very outlandish look, even for Mardi Gras.
