Five Christmas Games you HAVE to try!

In all the Christmas mahem it’s easy to forget to plan stuff to do to keep all the family entertained (especially when it’s day 4 and Uncle Geoff’s outstayed his welcome and the kids are beginning to get a bit annoying.)

 

So we’ve come up with a few alternative games, for when the sixth game of Monopoly is just one too many…

 

Candy Canes

Remember the good old days when Bowie was rocking and Bob Dylan was rolling? Well, if so you’ll have tried part of this game before. Take a Candy cane, perch it on your nose and see who can hold it the longest!

 

 

candy-canes-th

 

 

Christmas A-Z

Note the alphabet from A to Z down a sheet of paper. Ask everyone to fill in each letter with a Christmas themed word! Quickest to finish wins! Simple, but cheap and effective.

(You could maybe do with having a judge in case dad tries to cheat.)

 

 

Guess the Gift

Tell all your guests to bring a gift they would like to receive. Ideally keep the cost under a tenner. When everyone’s there, place the presents into a bag, mix them up and open them one by one. Now, let everyone guess who brought which gift.

Dunk the Bells

Don’t be surprised if this energetic holiday game vaguely reminds you of your teenage years. To play Jingle Bell Toss, you simply throw tiny jingle bells (or sweets) into your opponent’s plastic cups. You could even decorate the cups with marker pens and cotton wool to make your own mini Santa cups!

If you’re all adults, why not add a splash of eggnog…to add to the entertainment if nothing else.

Get Three in a Row

Those old wine corks can get the Frozen makeover for this wintry version of three in a row. The secret Frozen fan in all of us can enjoy this guilty pleasure!

One Tunic Four Looks

Don’t you just love it when you’ve got one thing in your wardrobe that you feel amazing in, works for loads of occasions and everyone comments on it when you wear it.

It can be a bit of an effort though thinking up new ways to style it differently to keep your look feeling fresh.

 

So we’ve taken one of our favourites the Distinctive Flocked Tunic (£39.95) and subtly styled it in 4 different ways…

 

 

For a special night out…

These lacey leggings and booties add a real touch of glamour and with a gorgeous statement necklace you’re ready to roll.

Stunning Leaf Necklace £17.95
Unique Boutique Lace Bootees £49.95

 

 

A fun day out…

Teamed with a ripped pair of jeans, flat comfy boots and this stylish day bag you’ve got a really effortless look that still packs a punch.

The Remarkable Patchwork Bag £36.95
Stand Out From The Crowd Boots £69.95
Rock and Roll Jeans £44.95

 

 

Spontaneous drinks with the girls…

For more of  a statement look we’ve gone for luxurious velvet boot-cut trousers and boots with a cool fedora. If no one compliments you in this outfit – we’ll eat our hat!

Bootcut Velvet Trousers ££39.95
Magical Velvet Bootees £39.95
Remarkable Fedora £17.95 

 

 

A Cosy pub lunch…

coat for all occasions

The Coat that will do for any occasion

Finding a coat that’ll do for any occasion can be a right mission. Especially if you’re going away and you don’t know what the weather’s going to be like and you don’t really want to take more than one coat.

 

So you need one that’s not going to look to formal over the top of jeans and a tee during the day, but that can also look dapper enough over a smart outfit (or even a suit) in the evening.

 

So introducing…. the Individuals Coat £89.95.

 

ja244a_model_front  ja244a

 

It’s classic and simple, but easy-wearing so you can wack it over any outfit for a bit of effortless style.

 

ja244a_back   ja244a_model_back

 

With shoulder panels and patch pockets, it’s also got something special about it – you wouldn’t expect anything less from us really would you?

 

So what do you think? Does the Individuals Coat make it into your suitcase?

ways to wear a waistcoat

Ways to wear a waistcoat

You might have noticed we can’t get enough of fun and funky waistcoats here at Joe Browns!

 

But knowing how to wear it, dress it up or down and give it your own distinctive twist can be a bit tricky, so we nabbed our head buyer Caroline, to give us a few pointers…

 

caroline-head-buyer-at-joe-browns

 

For the ladies:

She said: “Waistcoats are so versatile, you can easily style them for a smart or casual look. They’re great for adding an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky, as well as making a fun yet sophisticated impact to your outfit.

Heritage Herringbone Waistcoat

 

 

“My favourite from the new collection is the One Of a Kind Waistcoat because I love the stunning checked fabric teamed with funky buttons and a lace up back. It’s a really bold and bright look perfect for brightening up the cold dark nights to come!

“For a casual look you could pair it with an Understated Tie Neck Blouse with a lovely peter pan collar and ribbon tie – ideal for a trip to the shops or an impromptu coffee with friends.

 

waistcoat-lace-top

 

“For a slightly smarter look, maybe for the office or evening drinks, it looks great with a crisp white shirt – like the Ruffle Blouse.

 

waistcoat-riffle-blouse

 

Or if you want to go even smarter for a special occasion and want a real wow factor, it looks amazing with a contrasting textured jacket. I think Our Favourite Jacket sets it off perfectly.”

Here’s a few more pics from our last shoot at the North York Moors Railway Station that’ll hopefully inspire you to rock a waistcoat this season… (click on the pic to be taken to the waistcoat).

For the guys:

 

This little beauty – the Charismatic Waistcoat – makes for the ultimate staple. In a quality wool mix with simple styling, it’s a great addition to pretty much any outfit.

 

ja229a-comp

 

Want to keep it cas for daytime drinks with the boys, but fancy a funky twist that they’ll all envy? Wack it over the top of a graphic tee like this Wild Night T-Shirt for a laid back look.

 

ja229a_ts912a

 

Go just that little bit further than a plain white shirt for a cool dapper style. The Tripple It Shirt has a few signature Joe Browns details, from the tripple collar to double contrast buttons and is spot on for date night or an evening out on the town.

 

ja229a_sh836a-comp

 

For a complete distinguished gent style add on this awesome contrasting Charismatic Blazer. A great check is given a funky twist with mix and match cuff buttons creating a distinctive look. It comes complete with a pull out chest pocket lining that doubles as a pocket square – The ideal statement for special occasions.

Or what do you make of these looks?

Ways to inspire

Ways to Inspire…

We’d never try and tell you how you should wear your new JB dress, tunic or shirt – that’s how you make it individual to you and express who you are. But if you’re anything like us (which we reckon you are) you love to get inspiration from all around you and how someone else styles up an outfit can spark an awesome idea using what you already have (or plan to soon have!) in your wardrobe.

 

So here’s how our designers would style up the Mystical Enchantment Short Jacket for different occasions to get those creative juices flowing…

 

 

WJ019A_no_shirt

 

 

For Work

The Understated Tie Neck Blouse is the perfect partner for a smarter look. We love its peter pan collar and ribbon tie and you can’t go wrong with plain black Must Have Jeans. Add a bit of contrast on your feet with the Make a Statement Shoe boots.

LF536A_SIDE_1 WA001A WB017A WJ019A_no_shirt

 

 

 

For a walk in the country 

The My Favourite Ankle boots have a cool military style and with a borg lining are so comfy for long autumnal walks. We’d wack on a pair of Perfect Patch Pocket Jeans and The Epitome Top for an effortlessly fun and relaxed look. The Mystical Enchantment Jacket adds a touch of sophistication to complete the look – perfect for when you stumble upon a pub along the way!

LF559A_SIDE_2 WB013A WT020A              WJ019A_no_shirt

 

 

 

For shopping and bevvies

Love that feeling when someone stops you in the street to ask you where you got your outfit from? Prepare yourself for this feeling in this outfit. The Inspiring Print Dress is so eye-catching with its feel-good floral design it’s bound to turn heads. It goes perfectly with Beautiful Basic Leggings and the All New Remarkable Boots are both easy and elegant. With the addition of the light weight versatile jacket your classy look is complete!
