Hot New Season Hen Trends

By  

With summertime drawing to a close it’s an enthralling time of year for all fashion lovers as we get to delve into the new season and the many new colours, textures and trends that come with it! For any of you that are attending or hosting a hen party in the upcoming weeks or months this is the perfect time for a little bit of retail therapy! There’s no better time to update your wardrobe, and your hen style, than at the beginning of autumn, and this season isn’t going to disappoint. Here’s the top looks heading our way this season to give you hen party look that’s ahead of the curve.



The boudoir dressing of the summer months has slipped seductively into the new collections of Autumn. Take inspiration from Celine’s AW16 collection, shown above, and Alberta Ferretti with long length silk slip dresses, deconstructed in a simplistic way, with sleeves slipping off the shoulder for a glamourous hen party evening in a dimly lit cocktail bar. Pair with natural make up and large bejewelled earrings for a parred back elegance or opt for a dazzling colour such as red or orange and leave the accessories at home. If you’re after more edge team your feminine silks and satins with chucky patent boots for a cool contrast – heck out Topshop and Zara for slick ankle boots. Or keep your footwear dainty if your hen party is a more casual night and team a delicate satin and lace cami, seen in New Look and River Island in inky black and bottle greens, with dark jeans for a casual elegance.



With the colder climate, the coat is always the staple piece of every Autumn Winter wardrobe and catwalk collection, and with a different coat style to match every trend there’s plenty out there to choose from to top off your hen party look. Francesco Scognamiglio’s AW16 collection is filled with embellishment and luxurious fabrics, creating a showpiece coat filled with glamour to rival any hen outfit underneath. Shop at ASOS and Topshop to find your own style of embellishment or Zara for the cocoon shape shown above. For more simplistic chic stick to the classic outerwear silhouettes of the pea coat and belted trench, but reworked in supple leather and vinyl for an uber luxurious feel that both compliments and contrasts with lightweight silks and satin underneath. Or wear fashion’s comfort blanket in the form of a fabulously soft shearling coat. The casualness of the fabric and shape is the perfect foil to the exuberance of the rest of the Autumn Winter collections. Pick one up in River Island or M&S; perfect for keeping you warm on a cold hen party night or fitting in effortlessly on a hen party weekend country retreat.



The must-have accessory of this season is focused firmly on footwear, with over the knee boots having a major fashion moment. Seen everywhere from Valentino in pillar box reds, to Aquazzura in crushed velvet, to slouched supple leather at Vetements (above) the thigh skimming trend is on the up. And with even North West getting in on the action by stealing Kim’s Balenciaga shining silver pair anyone who is anyone is wanting to add a pair to their wardrobe. Search New Look and River Island for a classic black suede pair with a chunky heel that will help you pound the winter streets whilst also provide a fabulous contrast to a short embroidered, floating dress for a hen party look with a twist. Shop Kurt Geiger and Public Desire for mirrored heels (another big trend this season) and delicate ties at the back of the knee. The Sammy Carvela Kurt Geiger are a personal favourite, in a soft grey to go with boho looks and long winter coats for an alternative look for a hen party in the colder months.



With different textures weaving through all the AW16 collections, velvet is a stand out as a luxuriously heavy and rich fabric ideal for the winter ahead. Roberto Cavalli has always been about hedonistic women flamboyantly in search of a good time, mirrored in his electrifying velvety brights shown above. Work the velvet look in jewel tones to take your hen party look effortlessly from day to night, adding jewelled accessories to your look to ramp up the regal factor and compliment any extravagant drapes and ruching in the fabric. Oversize your texture at Mango with oversized t shirts, flared trousers, swinging dresses and crushed blazers; layer your spaghetti strapped velvet dresses with fine woollen role neck jumpers for a winter vibe during an afternoon tea hen party, which can be easily removed later on for a more romantic evening look. Or team velvet separates with clashing textures, such as tulle which is filling the high street this season. Match velvet with a one shoulder pastel top with tulle ruffling from Zara or a floating tulle midi skirt with glittering golden threads woven in – think Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City season six for an opulent mix of fabrics to make your hen party look sparkle.

With the new season approaching is the absolute perfect time to reinvent your wardrobe and create a fabulous hen party look. This is the season to embrace the art of dressing up and taking your outfit to after-dark effortlessly. It’s not just what you’re wearing, but how you wear it, giving yourself a truly unique outfit to make you stand out from the crowd at any hen party, looking as incredible as the hen night itself.
