One of St. Louis’ hottest parties of the year, the Mayor’s Mardi Gras Ball, kicks off Friday in the rotunda of the beautiful St. Louis City Hall. The masquerade/black tie bash is not just one of the many social events of the season, it’s also one of fashion’s most fun nights out. Whether you are going for a look that’s in the spirit or just a little bit rebellious—we’ve got you covered:

Queen of Mystique: For a look that is just a bit mysterious (which is right up my alley), pair a sassy black gown (lace details are a plus!) with an ornate, lace-inspired mask and purple makeup extras to add a touch of Mardi Gras spirit.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond: For an event like this, too much glamour isn’t an option. A short and flirty sequined dress paired with blingy accessories and feather details will ensure that you are the life of the party.

Unexpected Menswear: Trade out a traditional black tux jacket for something a bit more fun; add a colorful tie or bow tie, fashion-forward patent monkstrap shoes and a sleek watch and you may just be mistaken for James Bond…

Belle of the Ball: For the vintage-loving mavens out there, channel your inner Hollywood starlet with a flirty party dress, gold accessories and one of our favorite classic accessories—a pair of long lace gloves.
