Battle of the Monday Wear: Top 10 Carnival Monday Looks in Trinidad

Happy Wednesday World!

It’s been two weeks since our Carnival high on the road and we here at Global Carnivalist would love to think that it’s the perfect time to reflect. Carnival Monday is by far our favorite day and we saw so many sexy and creative monday wear fits.

Carnival Monday used to be known as the casual day masqueraders could wear a tank top with some pum pum shorts and their band’s insignia somewhere on the outfit. Carnival Tuesday was the glam day where you got to rock your costume and best fashion gems, but those days are rapidly changing.

Over the last three years, mas bands and private designers are offering Monday Wear in a more fashion forward way. Women are now getting their monokinis or bikinis designed instead of wearing a plain tube top. The burst of Monday Wear has now provided independent designers with an opportunity to showcase their work — creating a compettive culture for their work to be chosen by revelers.

Several designers had their work adorned on gym worked bodies – from Marie Collette, MonDiva and Rebel Monday Wear. to name a few. Let’s look back.
