From hippy and boho styles to the luxurious Studio 54 look, there is a seventies style of party clothes for everyone and there are plenty of choices available in all of your favourite online fashion retailers.

As an alternative to a sequin dress, these Pewter Sequin Palazzo trousers from the Limited Edition Collection at Dorothy Perkins also work really well as party clothes when teamed with a corset or halterneck top.
Party Clothes – The Halterneck Dress
Halter neck styles are great for summer parties and when you combine them with the summer seventies trend for maxi dresses they make an incredibly flattering outfit that disguises tummies, hips, thighs and legs. This blue floral halter maxi dress at Dorothy Perkins also combines a really pretty floral print which is another key trend of the summer.

These dresses are reminiscent of the Studio 54 era and particularly the designs of Halston, a label that was really popular in the seventies. This bright blue one shoulder swing sleeve dress by Lipsy is a dramatic choice of party clothes.
Beautiful floral prints are the perfect choice for a daytime party, barbecue or wedding.

Red party dresses are the perfect way to stand out from the crowd this Christmas. Perhaps not the obvious choice of colour when it comes to a dress for a Christmas party, but red party dresses can also look sophisticated, feminine, chic, festive and very stylish. The perfect choice if you want to look so hot that you sizzle. The LDB (little black dress) has a lot going for it in terms of versatility, but if you really want a party dress with the ‘Wow’ factor, the red party dress or cocktail dress is the answer.
You can pick from a range of different shades of red this season from bright to berry reds. Choose the red that really makes your complexion glow for the hottest party look. Those with dark hair will tend to look best in dark red shades whilst those with blond hair will look amazing in scarlets. Another great tip for choosing your red party dress is to keep it simple, the colour will provide enough of feature and a reason for people to look, there is no need to over complicate things.
Gain inspiration from the red dresses on the catwalk for autumn and winter 2010 which were a refreshing change to neutral colours that are also popular this year. At Richard Nichol there was a softly tailored one shouldered shift dress, the ultimate in elegance. Bottega Veneta also featured red with a skirt just above knee height worn with fishnets, a difficult look to pull off but can look amazing if done right. Alexander McQueen’s collection featured spectacular and elaborate red brocade dresses and an embellished floor length gown.

Lipsy As we know are the brand for Party Dresses and that is recognised by the celebs who flock to the store to get the latest look with the likes of American Celebutante Kim Kardashian, and our very own Cheryl Cole and Alexandra Burke who is a self confessed Lipsy-a-holic.
Hot in the Lipsy hit parade this week based upon popularity in store are these stunning party dresses, but the thing about it is that all but one of them are one shoulder dresses.
That suggested that an awful lot of us are loving that asymmetrical look right now, and no the wonder as it’s just a great on trend glamorous look that shows no sign of slowing down.
This wonderful Lipsy One shoulder drape dress has a great Grecian look defined by the layering and draping which is very popular at the moment, match with a pair of gladiators and you’re sorted, we mean gladiator shoes not the hulky Russell Crowe type of Gladiator of course.
This Lipsy Asymmetric Jersey Mini Dress Is also a great look, something quite different than the rest but will get you noticed.

The next party dress is just a wonderful example of a summer party dress, The Lipsy Chiffon Draped Panel Dress is cool breezy and light, perfect for a balmly evening or perhaps a stuffy hot venue. The dress ties in with a key look at the moment which is draping and could have stepped straight from the catwalk shows of Peter Pilotto whose signature style is draping and considered to be the master of that particular style, none the less the Lipsy Chiffon Draped Panel Dress will be significantly cheaper than one of Pitlotto’s originals.
The Lipsy Beaded Detail One Shoulder Dress is a classic hollywood look with the classic asymmetrical style white draped dress and contrasting waist band.

Retro party clothes are inspired by clothes of the past ranging from the forties to the eighties and are a fun way to dress in a unique and individual way. Although retro party outfits from all of the decades are right on trend at the moment, there is so much choice that you should have no problems in standing out and looking a little different from everyone else. You can also add your own modern twist to give your retro party clothes a completely unique feel.
Pick your decade
Each of the decades has its own character from the pretty practicality of the forties to the more glamorous fifties, the swinging sixties and the flowing relaxed styles of the seventies with a bit of disco diva look to boot. Each of these eras has some fabulous party dress styles which will look amazing this spring.
Forties – Tea Length Dresses
The forties was a time of make do and mend in Britain and dresses were pretty but practical. The skirt lengths were below the knee which is an incredibly flattering and on trend but if you want a slightly more up to date look you can also opt for a tea dress with a slightly shorter skirt length like this Cindy bead neck tea dress by Boohoo. Look for cute and fun prints and team with a brightly coloured cardigan or biker jacket to bring the look right up to date for 2011.
Fifties – Halter Neck Dresses
The fifties were characterised by the Hollywood era when glamour and elegance ruled. Fifties styles of dress are big news this spring and you can choose from a simple floral printed dress with a flared skirt for a more casual party or some full on glamour for a really special occasion. Halterneck dresses with full prom style skirts are perfect for partying in and would even work well for a spring wedding, we love this Halter Belle Prom Dress by Oasis. If you want to really work the look you could even add a pair of ladylike gloves. These dresses need to be worn with heels for maximum effect.
Sixties – Mini Shift Dresses
The styles of the sixties had a simple silhouette which is incredibly simple to wear. You can opt for mini shift dresses with or without sleeves in bold and bright colours and run prints. Party dresses with chiffon overlays are also a great style from the sixties that works particularly well. A Peter Pan collar dresses are also very fashionable at the moment and are great for parties. we love this lace Peter Pan collar dress by Rare Fashions.
Seventies – Maxi Dresses
Decadent maxi dresses of the seventies no only look great but are also really comfortable and easy to wear. They work well for both daytime and evening parties and if you want to really turn up the glamour you can opt for an embellished or one shouldered style. We love this purple frilled maxi dress by Dorothy Perkins.
If you are a little nervous of wearing retro style party dresses then a plain shift dress will look amazing for a special occasion in the spring with this floral hat by Oasis.
If you are a size 16 to 32, it can sometimes be difficult to find stylish and trendy clothes especially party dresses. Not only may there be a limited choice of dresses in your size but it may also be difficult to find just the right style. A great party dress will make you look sensational by flattering your feminine curves and being a great fit so that you can feel relaxed, comfortable and confident.
In order to find the right plus sized dress, you should follow much the same rules with regards to body shape as everyone else. The key to looking good is keeping your body in proportion by disguising the areas that are not in proportion and highlighting those that are. For example if you have a larger stomach, you can hide it by wearing dark colours on your torso and wearing empire line dresses. You should also avoid belts, patterns or fuss around this area. If you have wide hips and thighs you should cover or disguise these areas with darker colours and balance with wide necked tops and pattern and detail on the top half. A line dresses also work really well on plus size ladies with larger hips and thighs. A party is a great opportunity to get dressed up and look gorgeous and with the right choice of dress, you can ensure that you look stunning.
For the past few seasons maxi dresses have been a massive trend and the good news is that maxi dresses were obviously designed with plus sized ladies in mind. The empire line covers up the stomach hips and thighs and the loose fit allows the fabric to skim over curves giving a beautifully smooth and streamlined silhouette. The more fitted top is great for showing off a clevage and adds to the feminine charm of these dresses.
If you want to go for the ultimate in elegance, a black maxi party dress is not only very slimming but also classic and versatile. This jersey maxi dress is really comfortable and the spring details on the straps give it a definite feeling of Greek Goddess.
For those that love bright colours this orange jewelled detail maxi dressis just what you need for garden parties, weddings and barbecues. Team with an oversized clutch, wedge sandals and some chunky beads for a very stylish take on the boho trend.
Dark hair colours and skin tones will look stunning in this leaf print maxi dress. The strapless top looks incredibly glamorous making it suitable for all sorts of summer parties. It would look great with brightly coloured shoes or sandals for example green, red or orange. This is the sort of dress that will grab the attention of everyone in the room.
Adding a little sparkle is great way to get into the party mood. This gold embellished maxi dress is both flattering and on trend, Accessorise with gold strappy sandals and clutch for a great summer party dress.
Plus sized ladies can really carry of bold and bright prints. This multi print maxi dress for the fuller figure is the ideal way to stand out from the crowd when you go to a party this summer. Accessorise with bright and bold accessories to complete the look.
