Carnival and Soca music is a rich part of the Caribbean's culture, so its no surprise when ladies flood the streets in colourful costumes, massive headpieces and body painted in glitter at this time of the year and earlier with a frame of mind to revel in the heat of the sun or even in showers of rain to the drumming of beats and fast paced music.
In February, we took you in the streets with the Trinidadian women, who revelled in accessories ready for the road, leaving many of our readers marvelled at the costumes and unique accessories worn, read blog post here Time to Revel - Accessories for the Road. From long feather earrings to party ready coin purses, the Trinidadians revelled with their A-game up!
This month, it was that time of the year for the Jamaicans to show the world how we party to the beats of Soca "dung di road". No, we are not the Carnival captial, but we sure know how to wine and jump from side to side with massive headpieces to Soca, as many Jamaicans are lovers of Soca music like other Caribbean nationals.
The photos were many and so were the accessories! The headpieces were glamorous with some embellished with pearls, stones, gems and feathers of assorted colours that were eye-catching and party ready, even for the showers of rain that came down suddenly on the revellers.
Of all the accessories spotted, the headpieces were the number one eye catchers for us as they were extravagant and nothing less than diverse with great designs, with not just one being our favourite.
Here are a few of the accessories we spotted and loved in the streets of Kingston, Jamaica at Bacchanal, remember to keep your eye out for the headpieces too
