For Love of Purple, Green and Gold: 27 Mardi Gras-Ready Pieces

  • 2 min to read

The traditional Mardi Gras colors were established in 1872 by the Rex organization in honor of their very first parade. We’ve been parading with these colors ever since! From Twelfth Night to Fat Tuesday, celebratory carnival colors unify the city in the most festive of ways. Whether in fashion—head to toe—or all things decoration, we’re striking up the band for purple, green, and gold.
