Dressing up tends to mean that the person has put on nicer clothes. A carnival is a good time to "dress up," because you're going out and doing something special that you wouldn't do on a normal day. So you put on nicer clothes to look "dressed up" for the event. A lot of times, dressing up means much more formal clothing than everyday clothing.
