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!

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!

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

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.

Blogger Chichi’s sale picks

The gorgeous Chichi is awesome at picking a couple of items that take her fancy and rocking them as a  unique look.

 

Which is why we asked her to choose her favourite summer buys from our sale and show us how she’d wear them her way.

 

She picked out the Chill Out Gypsy Blouse £21.95 (was £34.95) and the Reversible Skirt £19.95 (was £39.95).

 

IMG_5812

 

Chichi hadn’t shopped with us before and this is what she made of us:

The whole outfit is from Joe browns. If you love vintage pieces, this shop you should definitely check out, you will be amazed at the selection and they also have gorgeous florals for summer in both the men and women’s sections.

 

IMG_5814

 

“The skirt is actually reversible so you get two for the price of one and the blouse is going to be on repeat as it has the most comfortable fabric and beautiful subtle embroidery, perfect for summer.”

 

IMG_5815

Processed with VSCO with 5 preset

 

We hadn’t thought of pairing these two floaty pieces together, but hope you agree that they look stunning! It just goes to show there’s no rules when it comes to putting an outfit together from pieces that grab your attention and make you feel great.

 

You can check out more on Chichi’s blog, The Style Tune, here.

Joe meets That Dapper Chap

We came across this cool looking fella on Instagram.

 

DSC_0200-comp

 

After saying ‘eh up’ (we are from Yorkshire after all) we made friends with Craig who writes an awesome blog called That Dapper Chap.

 

With our styles so in sync it only seemed right to send some of our stuff his way to try on for size and this is what he thought…

 

“Joe Browns is a brand that I’ve liked for a couple of years now but never got around to buying from. Nobody can say they are a shy and retiring brand. For people who aren’t afraid to dress a little out of the norm, embrace quirky bold prints and enjoy their individuality, Joe Browns is a brand you MUST check out.”

 

DSC_0195-comp

 

“I chose a navy blazer with a matching waistcoat that has a pink check. While not dramatically daring, the pink check adds a little something extra and some additional interest. The waistcoat has a collar which gives it a vintage feel, which is another element that Joe Browns embraces and does very well.”

 

DSC_0214-comp

 

To inject some additional personality, Craig accessorized with a Feather pin, Leather Hook Bracelet and a few of his own home-made accessories.

 

 

DSC_0219-comp

“I love the burgundy desert boots. I’ve never seen anything like them before and they fit like a dream and are super comfortable. I love the navy contrasting heel and laces and the patch on the top eyelet. Again, like the mismatched buttons on the jacket,  the attention to detail makes them more interesting than they could have been.”
