Worried about what to wear this weekend? There's no need to let it stop you from taking part in London's biggest party. A great tip for carnival is wear something that'll last the day, it's going to be a long weekend and you don't want to be burning out early!
The outfit below is easy to put together. It's going to be a sunny day so a short sleeved shirt is ideal, a pair of chinos or shorts can work just as well and the backpack makes you everyone's best friend for the weekend - as long as you're willing to hold on to everyone's stuff for a few hours! Consider a hat or a pair of sunglasses and you're set!
