Women's Fancy Dress

Whether you're looking for a spooky Halloween costume or to dress up as a funny cartoon character for a children's party, you'll be sure to find the perfect women's fancy dress costume.

Our range includes fancy dress costumes that are suitable for all occasions, whether you're headed to a themed birthday party, a charity fun run, or even out on a hen do with the girls.

Popular Fancy Dress Outfits for Women

It can be hard to choose a fancy dress outfit, particularly if the event that you're attending doesn't have a specific theme, so we've put together some ideas that are perfect for all occasions.

With costumes of all styles and in all sizes, you can take your inspiration from the movies with outfits from popular films like Grease , Pirates of the Caribbean or even Mary Poppins. These costumes are instantly recognisable and dressing as your favourite cinema character will certainly lead to a memorable party.

Fancy dress that is inspired by superheroes is also a common option, with characters including Harlequin, She-Ra and Wonder Woman always making sought after outfits. These can be great for costumes that are going to be worn for sporting events, such as fun runs or sports days.

Another trend is for fancy dress parties that are themed for particular years, such as the 1920s which inspires flapper dresses, bobbed haircut wigs and even vintage style cigarette holders. 1960s parties are also popular with mini dresses in bright colours and retro boots a simple way to look stylish while you're in costume.

How to Choose Women's Fancy Dress

Choosing the right fancy dress outfit will largely depend on the occasion you're dressing for so always try to pick a costume that fits well with the chosen theme and that you feel comfortable in.

Dressing in a fun flirty outfit might work well for an indoor Halloween party, but may not be such a good choice if you're doing a charity run or similar sporty activity in fancy dress. Similarly a 1920s themed Gatsby dress may work well for a summer garden party, but could be very chilly if you need to spend time outdoors in winter wearing your costume.


Sizing can also be different for fancy dress outfits compared with ordinary clothes, so if you're choosing something that's particularly close fitting it's a good idea to check the measurements to ensure your new costume will fit correctly.
