The coolest Mardi Gras 2020 collections you can shop now
Whether you're looking to show your Pride or offer your support, there are plenty of great Mardi Gras-inspired items to shop this year.
Mardi Gras may just be the most fabulous festival of the entire year. All about celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, the event is the perfect excuse to get decked out in all things rainbow and glitter and spread some love.
To make it even easier to find great outfits and accessories this year, a bunch of brands have already released special Pride-themed lines. Best of all, some of them will even donate the profits from the products sold to help give a voice to the LGBTQIA+ community and to make the world a safer place for everyone.
Levi's is always a huge supporter of Pride, releasing a collection around the time of Mardi Gras each and every year. This year's capsule features a range of tees, denim jackets and shorts complete with rainbow-coloured lettering and tie-dyed prints. There are also holographic raincoats and rainbow-themed socks, bandanas, belts and bags up for grabs.
For the second year running, Levi's has also teamed up with OutRight Action International and will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the line to help advance human rights for LGBTQIA+ people.
You can shop the Pride range now from the Levi's site.
If you're looking for some funky themed kicks to finish off your outfit, you can check out the Pride range available now from Volley. The brand has just launched three white sneaker iterations, all sporting the iconic rainbow stripe.
Plus, $5 from each pair of sneakers sold will be donated to the Wear It Purple charity, which supports the adolescent LGBTQIA+ community.
There are also two pairs of rainbow-inspired socks and a hat available to complete your look.
From funky festival-inspired pieces to tops and tees sporting phrases like "Love Without Limits" and "You Are Valid", boohoo has all your Mardi Gras outfit needs sorted.
There's even a range of funky makeup and accessories up for grabs including rainbow face and body paint, rainbow highlighter and rainbow-striped bikinis. In typical boohoo style, all the pieces are also super affordable, helping you to pull together a groovy look for under $50.
Comfy basics brand Bonds is also celebrating the Mardi Gras festivities with a whole new Pride collection. The limited-edition line sees a range of rainbow-inspired men's and women's undies, socks, singlets and tees on offer.
If you want to get your little one in on the action too, you can even shop tiny Pride wondersuits and adorable rainbow tutu dresses.
5. Best & Less
Speaking of shopping for the kiddies, affordable clothing retailer Best & Less has just released a Pride range that's perfect for your little one. An adorable range of bodysuits come complete with phrases like "I Got It From My Mamas", "I Have The Best Dads Ever" and "Equality".
The Pride collection joins an existing range of baby jumpers, trackpants and leggings featuring rainbow and heart designs.
While it may not be a new release, Jeffree Star Cosmetic's Velour Lipstick Bundle is still the perfect purchase for Mardi Gras. The kit arrives in a gorgeous rainbow Equality box and features eight different shades of the makeup mogul's famous velour liquid lipsticks.
Each hue comes in a fun shade name like "Diva", "Queen Bee" or "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and is small enough to stick in your purse for on-the-go touchups. As an added bonus, the formulas are also 100% vegan and cruelty-free, so you can feel great about shopping the range.
7. Lover Gin
There's no better way to get yourself in the party mood than by investing in a big old bottle of spirits. Now, thanks to Lover, you can nab yourself a 700mL bottle of gin in a fabulous bottle inspired by the glitz and glamour of the Mardi Gras festival.
As an additional flourish, it even features edible gold and silver flakes in case you're feeling extra fancy.
If you're looking for some killer makeup inspiration, Sportsgirl's new Starry Eyed Celebration Eyeshadow Palette has you sorted. Arriving in 24 Mardi Gras-inspired shades, you'll be glammed up and glittery in no time flat.
From Monday 24 February to Sunday 1 March, Sportsgirl will also be donating $5 from every palette sold to Minus18. As Australia's national organisation for LGBTIQ youth, Minus18 advocates for a society free from homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
If you want some Pride-themed gear that you can rock all year round, look no further than Balenciaga. The mega fashion label has a stunning range of rainbow-hued handbags and wallets that are absolutely perfect for celebrating in style.
Better yet, the range is currently on sale at Cosette, meaning that you can snap them up for a bargain price.
