2015- A Look Ahead

Happy new year! Did you have a good one? Are you returning to work today filled with resolutions and good intentions?

Well, we are too – and we’re really excited about all of the fantastic opportunities (excuses!) to dress up there are in 2015. We’re just itching to share a few with you…


January is Creativity Month – and what could be more creative than wearing fancy dress? On top of that, the 14th is National Dress Up Your Pet day, and it’s Winnie the Pooh Day on the 18th. And there you have three cast-iron excuses to get your fancy dress on!


Everyone knows that 14th February is Valentine’s Day… but did you know that the 2nd is both Hedgehog Day and Marmot Day? And on Friday the 13th, it’s Blame Someone Else Day. So you can legitimately turn up for work in fancy dress, and… blame someone else! Our favourite though, has to be the 16th, which is Do a Grouch a Favour Day. What better favour could you do to a grouch, than to dress up like Oscar the Grouch?!


March is Women’s History Month, so expect a lot of things going on to commemorate that. We’re sure if you put your mind to it, you can think of a woman from history to whom you could pay tribute!

If Women’s History Month is not your thing, then what about Dr Seuss Day on the 2nd? Even better, the 3rd is What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day – so you can re-use your Cat In The Hat costume, and save on cleaning bills! We know, we’re so helpful!

March really is a jam-packed month. On the 9th we have Barbie day, and following shortly afterwards on the 13th, it’s Ken Day! Why not go the whole hog, and dress up as both of them?

And if you don’t want to dress up for any of these days, then Poultry Day on the 19th is the day for you!


Aside from the fact April 1st is April Fool’s Day, when nothing is off limits, the 2nd is Children’s Book Day – why not dress as your favourite children’s book character? If that’s not appealing, the 4th is World Rat Day… imagine how many people you could freak out on your morning commute, if you did it in a rat costume!

March 11th is Barbershop Quartet Day. Do you have a candy-striped suit and straw hat somewhere at the back of your wardrobe? If that’s not your thing, the 17th is Nothing Like a Dame Day… so dust off that purple wig and the ridiculous heels!

Not feeling inspired? The 23rd is World Book Night, when books are celebrated everywhere. Who’s your favourite literary character?


Ooh, May’s going to be a good one! It’s Batman Day on the 1st! Who doesn’t want to dress up as Batman? Here’s your cast iron excuse to do so. If ghosts and ghouls are more your thing, the 3rd is Paranormal Day.

Of course, the one day in May everyone knows about is Star Wars Day – May the 4th Be With You!

Also, you should probably be aware that the 13th is Leprechaun Day. Keep an eye out for little ginger fellas in bright green suits… or just dress up as one yourself!


Wow, June is like a bumper month for fancy dress enthusiasts! The 9th is Donald Duck Day (though you might want to avoid dressing up as him in public – he never wears trousers!). Then on the 12th, we have Superman Day – another underwear issue, but easier to deal with. On the 19th it’s Garfield the Cat Day, so you can dress as a ginger cat and eat lasagne all day! And finally, the 25th is Global Beatles Day. The possibilities with this one are endless: you could go with early Beatles, with their trademark hair and suits, or the hippie Beatles, with the round spectacles, long hair and free love, man. Then there’s Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, or the outfits from the Magical Mystery Tour… half the work is in deciding which era to choose!

We’ll be back on Wednesday with Part 2 of our look ahead to 2015!

80s Fashion for Men Comments Off on 80s Fashion for Men

Posted on March 17, 2010 by admin

There is no denying that the 1980s were pretty special in style terms, but in particular it was male fashions that really blossomed during the decade. Nowadays we seem to have forgotten those 80s ideals of male 80s flamboyance, however for the nostalgic (or brave!) amongst you it’s pretty easy to recreate some iconic 80s outfits for men.

Just like women’s 80s outfits, male fashion in the 80s was defined by its bright colours, including shocking pinks and bright yellows (yes, we are still talking men’s fashion!) and somehow men in the 80s were able to were such ultra bright colours and still look ultra-stylish. Think of Miami Vice, for example; an inspiration for many 80s men, where pink t-shirts were often combined with “preppy” looks to create a truly iconic style.

When thinking of the eighties, shoulder pads definitely spring to mind, and it is certainly true that women took centre stage in terms of business as well as fashion. However, men’s business ware also became an issue of power, consisting of strong designs with pinstripes and oversize suit jackets.

During the 80s, sports began to share the stage with a vibrant pop culture, and sports-ware began to be considered highly fashionable. These sports inspired outfits not were not only ultra-stylish and fashionable, but they were also brightly coloured, thus in-keeping with the flamboyancy of 80s outfits.

For 80s inspired fancy dress costumes that promote authenticity and style in equal measures, make Fancy Dress Ball your first port of call. We supply a wide range of men’s and women’s 80s fancy dress costumes to suit any preferences.
