Chicago 1920s Hen Party Costume Ideas
Chicago is all about the 20s but my favourite costume for a Chicago themed hen do would be the Cellblock Tango outfits. They’re so easy all you need are some black fishnets, black tights, crop tops, black hot pants and you're Chicago themed hen costume is done. My tip is to use a spare pair of 10denier black gloss tights cut up as a crop top.
If you want to go for a more 1920s flapper costume for your Chicago hen party then you’re in luck. 1920s fashion has had a big resurgence in recent years and of course films like The Great Gatsby have really helped this. It’s really easy now to create the 1920s costume from the High Street or online. Actually that reminds me New Look had a fab fringe dress recently which I wish I’d of snapped up.
For the 1920s Chicago Costume, the idea is beads, fringe, and long pearls. A dress or any item of clothing with beading on it is a good start or of course something with fringe. There are lots of fab 1920s accessories you can easily buy online and still have change for £5. A string of fake pearls works a treat and I’m also partial to a 1920s head band as I think they really finish off the outfit. Stick to Black or White if you want to look authentic Chicago.
Charleston 1920s Hair and Make up ideas for your hen party
The Charleston make up and hair is quiet similar to the Burlesque costume. For me the main difference though is that with the 1920s eyes you can go heavy on the smokey look you don’t need to hold back.
Charleston 1920s Footwear ideas - bare feet or trainers are recommended. You can wear dance shoes if you have them but as tempting as it is I'd avoid high heels as you will probably want to save your feet for your night out so keep it comfy for the dance lesson, and just put the heels on for the photos.
