Ooh la la! Everyone's heard of the legendary Parisian nightclub, famous at the turn of the century for its risqué cabaret shows and courtesans. If you're going to a Burlesque themed party look no further than Play & Party's range of burlesque and cabaret costumes. Pair an ornate corset with a colourful frilly skirt to look the part. Gents can wear one of our tall top hats and a handle-bar moustache for a Victorian aesthetic.
Did you know that the Burlesque was the birthplace of the modern can-can? No Burlesque party would be complete without someone attempting this iconic dance. Kick those legs in the air and show off your stockings! Top tip: the Burlesque dancers dressed in many different colours, so don't coordinate your stockings and your skirts; go for mismatching shades to add another layer of excitement.
Have you been invited to a movie-themed fancy dress party? If you're a fan of Baz Luhrmann, going as a character from his award-winning Moulin Rouge! is a fantastic idea. To dress as Nicole Kidman's seductive Satine, choose a sequined or diamante corset (remember: diamonds are a girl's best friend!).
