Cabaret Hen Nights and Burlesque Fashion Trends

Ever considered having a Burlesque themed hen party? We sent our fashion Guru Louise Vance to Cabaret Supper Club's Summer Party in Belfast to check out what all the fuss is about! In this post Louise reveals how to get the Burlesque hen party look with out breaking the bank!
by LOUISE VANCE aka The Real Elle Woods

Earlier this week The Real Elle Woods and HenorStag.com were cordially invited to Cabaret Supper Club's Summer Party in Belfast! We were treated to a tapas & barbecue inspired buffet, drinks reception and a fabulous Cabaret show with burlesque performances, sewing singers and fire dancers to name but a few!

These kind of Cabaret and Burlesque style events are becoming increasingly popular for hen evenings, and having had a fantastic time at Cabaret Supper Club I can understand why!

While burlesque brings forth images of corsets, stockings and feathers, it is possible to make the fashion trend accessible for hen's wanting a chic and elegant take on the trend!

Lace works brilliantly, Karen Millen's cute and flirty lace skater dress has hints of corset style ribbon detailing giving the dress a burlesque feel, while the deep red of their colourful lace dress has a decidedly "Moulin Rouge" feel! Work the trend SATC style with their monochrome halter style lace dress, or for anyone scared of dresses keep it classic with black lace separates!

Lace accessories from Karen Millen also act as the perfect "burlesque" accents to any ensemble! For anyone wanting a more summery take on the look, Warehouse have produced a fabulous body con lace panelled dress in cream which is given the "cabaret" finish with glitzy "Great Gatsby" deco style peep toe shoes and matching clutch by Dune!
