The Day to Night Hen Party

When you’ve got activities till 5 then cocktails at 6, you need an instant outfit that can take you from day to night. T-shirt dresses look great dressed down with an oversized jacket and trainers in the day – So you’re ready for action. Then, throw off your jacket, cinch your waist in with a belt, pop on some heels and you’re sorted for drinks with the girls. Make that a large glass of wine, please.


The Ultimate Girl’s Sleepover Hen Party

Who needs a night out when you are the party right? A sleepover hen party is a perfect choice for a close-knit group of friends who want to stay in, drinking prosecco and having loads of fun. Obvs you’re going to need matching pyjamas for such an occasion. Opt for comfy matching loungewear that you will wear again and again.


The Surprise/Anything Goes Hen Party

A surprise hen party can be exciting but is an absolute ‘mare when it comes to packing. You need something that you can comfortably do activities in, but also look amazing if your surprise is cocktails on a rooftop bar. The best way to tackle this tricky situation is opting for trousers. Wide leg and culotte styles are big news this season. You could even match them with a matching co-ord top if you want to go full fashion. Just make sure to take both trainers and heels so you can take on whatever is thrown at you.
