So who’s looking forward to the Notting Hill carnival??? We know we are!! Can’t wait to see all the beautiful colours and costumes, and fingers crossed, we hope it will be a sunny weekend.
For those of you who are wondering what the Notting Hill Carnival is, it is the largest street festival celebration in Europe and features music, dance, food from all over the world, and best of all, costume parades.

To get into the spirit of the festival, we have put together a list of 10 fashion fixes. Let us know what you think!
These are beautiful headpieces that are made of feathers and will definitely get you into the mood of the carnival.
Need we stress the importance of protecting your eyes in the sun? How about adding a bit of fun to your outfit by wearing funky heart sunglasses?
The carnival is a huge street party, and by huge we mean mega huge. There will be lots of walking and standing, so make sure you wear comfy sneakers to make the most of the day.
Oh yes! We LOVE our nails, and with all the beautiful designs out there, there is no reason not to include your nails in the action. Beautiful bright colours should do the trick!
5) Body Harness
Add a bit of unconventional jewellery to your outfit by experimenting with a gorgeous body chain harness.
6) Sun Hats
If the sun is shining ( with the UK weather, we can just never know), it would be a good idea to be well prepared. Wear a beautiful sun hat to keep the sun out of your face and prevent any squinting that could lead to wrinkles under eyes.
Oh yes! Wear a beautiful mask and get involved in the carnival! It will also make for a great facebook profile picture 😉
How about looking hot in a pair of festival fashion shorts. These will definitely go well with your sneakers and you can show off your great legs! 🙂
9) Face Paint
Get together with your friends and have a pre-carnival party by face painting each others faces and snap away with your camera. It will be lots of fun, we promise!
10) Feather Earrings
You could wear a feather headdress, but if that is too overwhelming, how about a pair of beautiful feather earrings? They are still colourful and you can stay in your comfort zone.
