To help, we’ve created a hen do style guide to make sure you look amazing whatever the event! Mega party Sometimes all you need is a big party to celebrate! No matter where you go, you’ll want to look sensational on a hen do night out — so, planning is needed. You might’ve noticed that the ‘80s are back! Think maxi dresses, big shoulders and bright shades. Go for high-waisted shorts and a square-shoulder satin blouse or try a ruched velvet dress with huge hoops and a chunky necklace. Fusing bold shades in one look is also a top trend from recent global fashion shows, but don’t forget that asymmetric cuts, figure-hugging fabrics and bare shoulders are also ideal for a party. Go for an off-the-shoulder bodycon that emphasise your curves and match with killer heels to lengthen your legs. Day drinks For something more low-key, many brides-to-be enjoy day drinking with their girlfriends. Going out afterwards, too? Then, you need a look that takes you from day to night without the need of a costume change. Think skinny leather jeans with mid-heel boots and a shimmery, metallic-embellished cami with a subtle diamante head chain or pull on a high-waisted print skirt and match with a crop top or bodysuit and strappy heels. Bardot dresses with casual pumps and a neutral kimono is ideal for a day of sipping drinks. At night, just switch to stilettos, throw on statement jewellery and roll-up your kimono so it fits in your envelope bag! Girly sleepover Sometimes you can’t beat a traditional girly sleepover! If you’re celebrating your hen do at home with your best friends, then make sure comfort is your priority. Athleisure is the vibe you want to channel for indoor comfort and style. Pair a pair of skinny joggers with a casual crop top and over-sized jacket or go for leggings and high-top trainers with a slouch sweater and headscarf for a contemporary, urban look. Opt for shorts and a cami for a cool look. If you’re wondering about footwear, we say sandals, flats or espadrilles. Spa People still love to take a few photos at the spa, so make sure you’re still looking your best! It’s all about relaxing and indulging at the spa. But when you pop out of the jacuzzi, you want to dry off quickly — so a bathrobe is essential. Why not order all the girls matching robes with ‘bride’ and ‘hen’ on the back — perfect for that Instagram post by the pool! Do you own a cute swim set? If you’re going to be lying by the pool all day, you want something that you feel comfy both in and out of the water. Don’t hesitate in wearing a swimsuit with a pop of colour or embellishment, like frills. You’re at a party after all! And make sure you pack your fluffy sliders and flip-flops for the perfect base to any spa pool outfit. Bring a back-up outfit if you’re heading out for dinner in the evening too. Luxury spas sometimes have a certain dress code you should bear in mind, which means you should keep it classy and understated. Peplum tops and skinny-sit trousers look gorgeous for lunch dates and evening get-togethers or why not opt for a stripe, culotte jumpsuit with a belt and pair of suede, ankle-wrap sandals? Finish with a tote bag or quilted clutch and be prepared for all eventualities at your hen spa weekend. Afternoon tea Afternoon tea has definitely become more popular in the past few years. Make sure all the girls put the same amount of outfit-prep effort in as they would for a big night out by investing in cute smock dress. Think elegant and fun — bold floral prints, pastel colours, and stylish hem and necklines evoke the perfect air of old-time glamour. Pastel shades and neutral tones are ideal for this type of event. Wrap-round and Bardot styles will also ooze sophistication and offer figure-flattering outlines, or you can go for simple but effective chic in a midi or maxi dress with a shot chiffon jacket. We recommend dressing up your look with simple jewellery, a clutch bag and low-heel court shoes — dressed to impress but comfortable enough for a few hours of food and drinks. We guarantee that these style tips will keep your look on point this season!
