Fancy Dress Ideas from Lindy Bop

Whether it's Halloween, News Years, a birthday, hen do or housewarming - we just love an excuse to get out the fancy dress!

You could hire something out, or do the DIY thing if you're that way inclined, but we think it's a perfectly legitimate reason to buy yourself a fabulous new dress. Well, you may as well spend your money on something you'll get more wear out of - right?

With the right accessories you really can put quite a twist on these Lindy Bop styles.


It's not just little girls that want to dress up as Disney princesses; this adult sized Cinderella dress is perfect for both twirling around a ballroom with your Prince Charming - and doing the Time Warp in the kitchen with a G&T.

"Cruella DeVille, Cruella DeVille, if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will!"

If you'd rather go as a baddie than a goodie, you can't go wrong with the glamour of Cruella. No dalmatians were harmed in the making of this look.

For an electrifying fancy dress outfit how about Sandy from Grease? Our Rizo jacket will give any goody two-shoes a tough gal edge  - and we can guarantee our new Bethan trousers will be comfortable than Olivia Newton-John's spray-on specials. Gotta leave room for party snacks.

Layer this blue gingham dress over a little white top and you've got the perfect Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz outfit. If you don't want to fork out for ruby slippers (although - why not?) you could just attack a cheap pair of courts with some glue and red glitter. Fluffy Toto optional but recommended 🙂
