Coordinating your outfit with your friends and family is a hen party tradition. Whether it’s simply a t-shirt or your whole outfit, matching clothes makes you stand out as a group. However, there are better alternatives than your usual cheap looking fancy dress.
Disney fans can find cute and simple ways to create their own hen party outfit by wearing mickey mouse ears and slogan t-shirts in the classic Disney font. You can make these outfits even more special by having your party personalise their ears with glitter, bows and more, before you head out for your hen party activities.

Classy Fancy Dress
Make fancy dress classy! If you have a favourite era or decade, then get your group of friends and family to dress up in similar outfits. Decades such as the 1920’s expel elegance with a little bit of sexy, making a much better outfit than the cheap fancy dress you’ll see others wearing.
