Simple Denim Looks

You really can’t go wrong with the classic pairing of denim and a top when planning a carnival outfit. This style is stylish, chic, and most of all comfortable. With any classic denim shorts, jeans, or overalls, you can pair them with a trendy cute t-shirt, or casual blouse to create your idea carnival look.

One way to dress this style up is by pairing it with cute accessories like earrings, hats, sunglasses, or a cute bag. Make sure you finish with a stylish BUT comfortable pair of shoes for all your carnival fun. Take a look at a few of our favorite simple denim looks for your day at the carnival.

Cool Summery Dress

I think it’s safe to say that most carnivals are held during the summertime, making the weather more than likely a little warm. Dresses are such a few and easy ways to look pulled together, but still feel comfortable and cool for those warm days. Plus dresses are such an easy outfit to pull together, basically a one-and-done outfit.

Pro tip: Pop on some little skin-colored shorts underneath your dress to prevent any mishaps! Street fairs, boardwalks, and carnivals all tend to be quite windy at times.
