What to Wear to Drag Brunch

Let’s start with a little update on my hair. At the end of January Johanna colored the bottom of my hair a mix of rose gold and magenta. She painted the color on in a random pattern because we weren’t sure how it would take and how long it would last. I got about three weeks our of the first color before it started to fade.

When I went to her the second time it was just a week out from Mardi Gras so we decided to go more vibrant and do the magenta all over my blonde. It really came out this beautiful vibrant and rich shade and it was my favorite Mardi Gras accessory. I didn’t wear a lot of wigs this year because of it.

So what am I doing from here? I am not sure. I have grown to love the color and I am definitely going to keep it for a few more weeks. I have been using Viral Wash on the pink, washing in cold water and only washing once a week to extend the life of the color.

Now let’s talk about Drag Brunch…

Every weekend I see people I know going to Drag Brunch with their friends. Restaurants like The Country Club to event spaces like the Fillmore NOLA are hosting these fun and festive themed brunches. We even have a restaurant on the Northshore, LOLA, who is hosting their own drag brunch.

The Traveler Broads have a whole section on their website dedicated to it here. P.S. If you aren’t following them on IG you need to start STAT!

I mean it’s brunch, booze and a show. What could be better than that.

With the fabulousness that drag queens bring this means that you can’t just show up in jeans and a tee. Attention must be paid to the outfits you are wearing! For that reason I am outlining some great options for your next drag brunch.

Sequins

In New Orleans it’s always sequin season. There is never an occasion that you can’t appropriately add sequins to your look. Drag Brunch is the perfect reason to bring the sparkle and shine.

Sequins can feel more like a winter staple but I found several pieces that will work for spring and summer too.

White Dress // Floral Midi Skirt // Yellow Sequin Romper

Color

As we enter the season of spring color is already our best friend. Drag brunch is the perfect time to break out the neon, bright and fluorescent shades.

Pattern

Think big. Think bold. Think all over.
