    Hola Everyone,

    Now this is a bit of a weird one…. every year we have a Carnival in our home town and a group of us that have been friends for years, always get together and enter a float (we've won 1st Prize in humorous for the past four years - strange thing is we don't always go in for the humorous section, but ho hum…)

    My query is this year a 'Ska/Rude Boy/Girl' theme has been chosen (now, I'm the youngest of the group at just turned 30) and I called my H2B (who is 42) and asked him to explain what it was, he laughed at me, obviously thought I was joking and said 'get cracking shorty and get my stuff whilst you are at it' - HELP I have no idea what a Rude Girl should wear or indeed what a Rude boy should wear. I've tried Google but when I typed in Rude boy or Rude girl I got rather a lot of results back, many of which I didn't want to click on if you get what I mean?! :eek: ha ha

    So - if any of you know or can help suggest outfits I'd be most most grateful.

    Thanks in advance,
    :)

    Urban Dictionary: ska dress

    I couldnt be bothered to read it all but might help?

    I believe SKA is a type of music and people wear black and white.

    I would say rude girl is caps on sideways, socks over trousers. etc

    hope this helps?!

    Think Ashleen from big brother, 'Init doe' 'Know yourself'.

    That rude, aggressive, hard attitute.


    Rudes wear designer gear and listen to garage/RnB/'hip hop' and they often hang around in big gangs and make up they're own language which no one can understand. Words/phrases in their vocab include: raggin' it, flossin', mingin', rank, nang, mingin' and many others including my personal favourite 'innit' which is usually thrown inbetween two random words.
    In their gangs, a rudes main aim is to cause terror and abuse passers by even if they havent done anything. They often prey on greebos and beat the hell out of them just for being different.
    Designer clothes, baggy fashionable an d colourful.

    I like a bit of Ska, so...

    Rude boy dress is dead easy: just look like the Blues Brothers with a Pork Pie hat. Suit needs to be 3 button, slim fitting. Skinny tie is essential, as are brogues or Doc Martins. A #1 crew cut would help. If he doesn't want a suit (but you would, this being fancy dress), a Fred Perry polo shirt.

    For girls, this is perfect:

    Though there's less of a uniform for girls. Shoes is a tricky one. Basically something small and 60's style. TBH you could go a bit more 3rd wave, wear a dress like that one and a pair of black and white Converse All Stars.

    And this being fancy dress, expect a lot of Madness, Bad Manners, Specials, etc. unless someone really knows their stuff, so get familiar with that kind of music. I'd be surprised if you heard anything like the Toasters, Mighty Mighty Bosstones or anything else that I listen to lol

    In fact, I have to pop down to the bank soon, and I'm going to put the Toasters on in my car, just because of this thread :D
