Mardi Gras Costumes for Men - FAQ


What are good mardi gras outfits for men?

A Mardi Gras celebration calls for purple, green and gold, and Mardi Gras outfits for men should usually be on the classier side. Go for a nice button down or collared shirt for Mardi Gras, depending on the attire called for in your invitation. If the attire isn’t specified, go for something in the middle, like a flexible, horizontal stretch Mardi Gras button-down from Tipsy Elves. They carry a large variety of unique ultra-soft tees as well, if you know you’ll be attending a more casual Mardi Gras event. Mardi Gras outfits for men largely depends on what kind of celebration you’re attending, just make sure you’ll be comfortable and colored correctly.

What are the colors of Mardi Gras?

The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold. These are said to have been chosen in 1892 when the Rex Parade theme "Symbolism of Colors" gave the colors their meanings. Purple Represents Justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power. The colors are also used in heraldry — the system of which coats of arms and other armorial bearings are created and regulated. This system is regulated so that metals (gold or silver) should not be placed next to other metals, and colors should not be placed next to other colors - which is where the gold comes in. Though the order doesn’t necessarily matter anymore, it’s now a Mardi Gras aesthetic.

Why is there a baby in a King Cake?

A miniature porcelain or plastic baby, which symbolizes baby Jesus, is hidden inside of each King cake to signify the Epiphany. The baby Jesus symbolizes luck and prosperity, and whoever finds him gets to play king or queen for the day. Additionally, whoever is the lucky recipient of the porcelain baby is responsible for bringing the next cake - or hosting the next party. The king cake is a fun way for New Orleans residents to celebrate their Christian faith. If you wish to bring your king or queen a gift to the next cake slicing, we might suggest these King Croc Socks with pocket to bring to your next celebration. Your newfound royalty will thank you.
