Subtle Hen Party Themes
Synonymous with hen parties are themes! Sexy Moulin Rouge, fun loving Where’s Wally, or even all-out crazy old ladies? For years now, hen parties have sported an array of TV, film and music icons. But not everyone possesses such brave tastes – some of us more refined. Don’t be fooled into thinking this breed of hen is stripped of all the traditional naughtiness and excitement – she’s just fashion conscious and to be honest, a complete trendsetter! Take a look at some of the best subtle hen party themes for a big weekend right now!
If complete Ibiza diva Frankie Sandford can do it, why can’t we? A perfect opportunity to look like a gorgeous girl super group – in coordinating outfits! We’re not talking cringey nineties Spice Girls style, but more fifteen girls all in the latest fashion trends in this season’s hottest colours. Patterns, plains, textures - all following a specific colour set. You could even get everyone together for a pre-hen do shopping trip to choose outfits! Frankie and her ladies wore dresses, shorts, tops and skirts all in pastel yellow, grey and white – perfect to show off their Balearic tan!
Pulling off an all over colour scheme maybe just a little too ambitious for some. A more subtle approach is needed here. Do you want to inject a bit of fun into practical day outfits maybe? Add a splash of colour to completely black outfits with coloured tights! The Saturdays famously did this back in 2008 with the release of their song ‘Up’. The girls look super cute with a sense of unity without being too ‘obvious’ or in your face!
For some, colour is just not their thing. Girl’s night out equals the classic LBD – Little Black Dress – and you wouldn’t be seen without the perfect one on your hen night! It tends to be something all us ladies have in our wardrobe – that perfectly fitting and trusty black number. You’re guaranteed to look super stylish and definitely turns some heads!
Hen parties are a time to celebrate women’s independence too – feel liberated by the freedom women now possess. After all, there was a time when hen dos didn’t exist and ladies would patiently await the return of their men from their last night of debauchery! What better way to express female confidence than to show we can do as our men do and get suited and booted for a special occasion. Martine McCutcheon did just this at her hen do in 2012 – fitted tuxes with sky-high heels – just perfect!
Glitter and Glam
Then there’s the ultimate girlie girl of us; you love pink but the overuse of it at hen parties makes you wince! Fit for a perfect party princess is glitter and glam. What could be more feminine than literally sparkling from head to toe? Girls, be angels for the night and dress in gold, silver, bronze and pewter with sequins, glitter, sparkles and diamantes! Follow the crowd? Definitely not. Stand out from the crowd? Hell yes!
