When it comes to sourcing a fantastic outfit, start by analysing the title on the invitation or suggested theme. You’ll find that themes can be bent or stretched to suit your level of comfort or excitement.

Consider the hosts and the type of people who are likely to be attending the party. If you are unsure of how far to go with your character then ring the host and find out what efforts they are going to with their costume and party decorations, and what they are hoping of their guests.
The weather will also make a difference to the best choice of garment to be wearing.
“Medieval” is a great theme for winter while a “Toga” or an “Island Dream” or “carnival” theme could be good for a summer party.
For some people dressing to a theme will seem to come more naturally. For others, the idea can seem terrifying!
What if I look stupid in fancy dress?
If you are feeling wary of expressing yourself openly in a fancy dress situation, then seek a friend or more from the guest list and pick costumes out together. That way you know, at least you look stupid together. There is safety in numbers, and if there are more than one of you then it will look more like trend than a faux pas.
Pick an outfit that you feel comfortable in. If you want to disappear into the crowd, then pick something smart, and all black, and add a few accessories. There are subtle ways and extravagant ways to dress to theme.
If you’re feeling stumped, give us a call, come on, see if we can’t come up with something to suit you and your party.
