Fashion — Men’s Wear at Carnival Fetes 2017

Our post for “What to Wear to a Carnival Fete” for women was such a hit that we decided to help the men out also. I’ve partnered with Gavin [IG: @gbvision] on this feature to give you a men’s perspective. In Gavin’s words, here is what you need.

CARNIVAL ESSENTIALS

ASOS/Uniqlo
The recommended website for all things basic and functional. If you’re looking for fast fashion with moderate price points, Asos and Uniqlo is your one-stop destination.

A cooler fete is a more laid back event where is bare jamishness and you get to bring in your own drinks. Think Cooler Fetes – Some events to mention that are similar in set up are Soaka, Jam Nation, Vale Vibe, Punchy Punch and Blue Range.

Key Pieces

  • Year Round Denim Short Assortment (Asos)
  • Tank Tops
  • Chino Shorts
  • Printed T’s
  • Basic Trunks
  • Package Tees

When considering anything formal and upscale attire, every man should start with Ralph Lauren. A stush fete is what one might consider your grown and sexy event. Feel free to dress up a bit more to this type of event. For an example of this kind of event,  Think Premium All Inclusives like Lime, Beach House, C’est La Vie, Lara All Inclusive and Bliss (Barbados)

Key Pieces: 
Resort Wear
Printed Shorts & Trunks
Premium Polos
Floral Prints
Braided Belts
Chambray & Linen Shirts
Slacks/Dress Pant

*When considering boat rides, consider Ralph Lauren (best printed trunk selection) to make your presence felt at name brand events such as Candy Scorch DDI, Coated Cruise, Suits & Bess Lime.

*When considering Jouvert, ASOS is the way to go with the biggest selection of affordable trunks (under $25)

*If you’re a complete vagabond who does destroy they clothes when fetting, H&M may fit all your fashion needs
