On Sunday, March 29, one of the best, must-go events to hit Jamaica will be back in action at Hope Gardens. The Color Festival, also known as ‘The Happiest Festival in the World’, promises to be more exciting than ever with ‘a great line up, even more and better colour, superb drinks and a perfect celebration’.
If you’re travelling in my boat, you’ve probably never attended any of the stagings of this event, and as a result, you’re probably clueless as to what to wear to have coloured powder thrown all over you. The promoters of the event give us a hint – wear white! Wearing white enables the effects of the colour to be more visible than if you were to wear coloured clothing. However, they do suggest that you don’t have to wear a full white outfit, but at least a white shirt. Ensure your clothing is comfortable, including your sneakers/sandals.
You’ll also want to make sure you wear clothing that you’ll be ok tossing out afterwards just in case it becomes damaged due to the powder. Keep accessories to a minimum – simple necklace, pair of earrings, simple cuff bracelets, OR a lightweight body chain will do the trick. If you do opt to ditch the jewelry, flash tats are a great way to add some flair to your look.
Based on pictures from previous events, I’ve created 3 outfits you can wear to The Color Festival. They’re very simple, casual, and comfortable. Check them out below!
