Look out for these patriotic UberSoca trends at Carnival 2019
Carnival is that time of the year where Trinis get very creative with their body wear and accessories.
We all know that repping one's country during Carnival is about as standard as a corn soup at the end of a fete.
We're accustomed to waving our flags in the air anytime the DJ asks us where we're from, however, while at UberSoca Cruise--which is currently hosting the second of its back-to-back sailing to Labadee, Haiti--we noticed that patrons took an even more creative approach to repping their home turf.
Here are three patriotic items we think will trend for Trinidad Carnival 2019.
Face masks aren't new.
They're a staple item for j'ouvert and Bunji Garlin and Machel Montano popularized them even more with their 'Buss Head' merch. However, UberSoca patrons took face masks to another level wearing face masks bejewelled in their country colours.
You can get yours made with Masks by K.
Why not show off those muscles and where you're from with flag compression sleeves.
We saw many guests wearing these around the ship, leading us to play a game of 'Guess the Sleeve'.
Bedazzled mason jars aren't exactly new but we did notice a lot of patrons rocking mason jars in the colours of their home country.
Show your country pride while sipping on your favourite drink on the road.
