Carnival outfit without feathers – featuring WWYF
One of the amazing things about Notting Hill Carnival is that it’s a free open event, where everyone can participate, with or without feathers, in a band or not, and still have their own ‘Caribbean Moment’.
We recently met up with London fashion label WWYF (Wear What You Feel) to get their top tips on choosing your outfit for the Carnival weekend!

Style for the Ladies :
A Dashiki Shirt : the dashiki is an oversized African cotton shirt, worn traditionally by men with matching trousers and recently embraced by celebrity fashionistas like Rihanna and Beyonce as a short and trendy mini dress.
Ru, on the right wears:
A Navajo Style Poncho : while South American tribal motifs have been popular for several seasons, Carnival is a great opportunity to pull out all the stops and really have fun with the look!
All clothes are from WWYF (Wear What You Feel).
