How To Wear A Leopard Print Dress This Christmas

A leopard print dress certainly says something about you. It says that you are right on trend and ready to party but also a bit of an animal. A leopard print dress needs to be worn with attitude. It is not for the shy and retiring types but for the girls who know what they want and that is a good time. With animal prints being such a huge trend this winter, the leopard print dress is the ultimate Christmas party dress of the season.

Animal prints particularly leopard prints do have a bit of a reputation though and you need to pick your style carefully to ensure that you look more ‘Pixie Lott’ than ‘Pat Butcher’. Consider the colour, size and boldness of the leopard print and how it will work with your colouring, size and shape.

For example if you are petite, then look for a small scale leopard print.

If you larger hips then perhaps opt for a shift dress with a black skirt and leopard print top.

Lipsy One Shouldered Gathered Party Dress

The one shouldered or asymmetrical leopard print dress is also a really fashionable look this year. Also combinations of leopard print with other animal prints is a great look that will work for most people.

If you love this seasons lace dress why not go for a leopard lace dress combination.

If your average leopard print is just not glamorous for you then why not add sequins as well.

Olivia V Neck Maxi Dress

For those that don’t like body con and mini dresses, you can find some great leopard priny maxi dresses online. With a fitted bodice to show off you upper body and a long looser fitting skirt to skim over the tummy, hips and thighs, this is the perfect choice for those who are a little self conscious about their body. It also great for those who want to rock the leopard print dress in a slightly more grown up and sophisticated way.

A final word on leopard print dresses. They are a huge style statment in their own right and generally don’t need anything to compete with them in the way of accessories. Wearing your leopard print dress with neutral coloured shoes and accessories are very this season but you might also be able to get away with one really bright and bold accessory. Red works really well with leopard print.

At Dolce and Gabbana, leopard prints were combined with polka dots for a bold and unusal look. You could try adding  a polka dot accessory for a brave but on trend look. Low key and understated jewellery is the way to go or even go without jewellery altogether.

New IN Lipsy VIP Party Dresses, But For How Long?

Lipsy have once again excelled themselves with their New collection of VIP Party Dresses which hit the store this week.

The eagerly anticipated 2010 designer dresses collection was launched on-line and in Store simultaneously to critical acclaim, and though a small collection, it certainly offers a rich selection of beautifully crafted, bang on trend VIP Dresses which Lipsy say are ideal for special summer occasions.

These VIP Designer Dresses has an emphasis on glamour, luxury and sophistication and sets a very high standard for this season with some sensational garments and certainly builds upon some wonderful VIP Party Dresses from last year.

Exclusive & Rare VIP Party Dresses

Lipsy have informed us that as the VIP collection is more Couture than Fast Fashion, and the collection is designed to be limited in stock and as a result only small number of each item has been made, Lipsy say that in the interest of its customers they regard VIP Dresses as being a premium brand and that customers enjoy wearing a garment that is not necessarily going to be worn by someone else at the same function as that would lose the essence of the brand, the down-side to this is of course that the VIP Collection is likely to sell out very quickly.

VIP Dresses Have Celebrity Status

Lispy are a a brand that transcends the gap between Celebrity and the ordinary buying public as their women’s clothing is adored by the likes of Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke and Alesha Dixon as well as many other celebrities.

Their new VIP Dress designs this year take the collection to new levels for the Summer, but also keep some of last years classics such as the Vip Bejewelled Heart Layer Dress which was a firm favourite on the red carpet for the like of Corrie’s Michelle Keegan, and the Vip Studded Feather Dress which was seen on glamorous Pussycat Dolls star Kimberley Wyatt.

Brand New VIP Designs

Of course Lipsy haven’t been resting on their laurels as they’ve introduced some super new knockout designs to improve the overall line up of Lipsy VIP Party Dresses and will certainly get you noticed, we can see in the Vip Bustier Sequin Dress which we see as being a very special favourite with a lot of you this year, or perhaps the Vip Maxi Beaded Strap Dress as a little more understated, but all the same a stunning summer maxi dress maybe for a big special occasion this summer such as an outfit for a wedding.

However If you want something different and to totally glam it up, well Lipsy will not disappoint you their either, the new Vip Bandeau Disc Dress for example is a perfect example of the new VIP collection, this stunning Dress looks amazing and is very epitome of the Luxury VIP brand.

Dress Like Your Favourite Star – Celebrity Dresses At Lipsy

If you love celeb watching and checking out their celebrity dresses, then you should also check out Lipsy for some amazing celebrity style. Look out for party dresses that match the style of all of your celebrity dresses worn by Kelly Brook to Jennifer Lopez. Whether you have a summer party to go to or you are looking for amazing wedding guest dresses, you can get some great inspiration from the celebrities. Here is the low down on our favourite celebrity style for summer 2011.

Kelly Brook’s Style

Kelly Brook is a regular on the red carpet and always looks immaculate and polished with her long dark hair and amazing figure. She definitely knows how to pick out the best clothes to compliment her curves. She started off her career wearing a barely there pink sparkly dress to the Snatch premier back in 2000, perhaps not that stylish but definitely attention grabbing. Since then her style has evolved into a much more sophisticated look. She is often seen wearing pieces by her favourite designers but she is also not afraid of wearing high street clothes as well. It would be difficult to pin point just one style for Kelly Brook as she is constantly changing from cute retro to glamorous and sophisticated. She loves wearing red, black and greys and always opts for feminine and ladylike dresses. She also often wears bodycon dresses which really flaunt her figure.

Jennifer Lopez’s Style

Jennifer Lopez is another celebrity whose style has evolved over the years from her trademark velour tracksuits and hoop earrings to a much more sophisticated look with plenty of beautiful celebrity dresses. Another celebrity who also knows how to work the red carpet, she is clearly no longer ‘just Jenny from the block’. Jennifer Lopez is famous for her beautiful glow and her choice of nude, cream and white dresses compliment her skin tone perfectly. In recent years she has begun to wear some really beautiful and elegant dresses including the floaty jewel encrusted Zuhair Murad dress that she wore to the Met Ball. You can Jennifer’s style with soft floaty chiffon dresses in nude colours accessorised with perhaps just a little animal print!

Kate Middleton’s Style

One person who is going to be very much in the public eye over the next few weeks and who is also much admired for  her style is Princess to be, Kate Middleton. Ever since the announcement of the royal engagement at the end of last year, we have become obsessed by what Kate wears. She has a very simple and elegant style and favours dresses witha classic cut and mid length skirts. Her outfits do however usually have a modern twist to them. One of Kate’s most recognised looks is the blue dress that she wore for the announcement of the engagement. Kate is probably the best celebrity to watch for inspiration for wedding guest dresses as she is often photographed at formal occasions. She often wears beatifully draped pieces like chiffon dresses. You can get her look with this elegant blue dress by Lipsy.

Don’t forget to check out the celebrity dresses and wedding guest dresses at the royal wedding on 29th April for some more great style inspiration.

Top 5 Trends In Christmas Party Dresses

Top 5 Trends In Christmas Party Dresses

Christmas party dresses are all about glamour, sparkle and style statements to get you noticed. Christmas is not a time for subtle looks that fade into the background. This Christmas the key trends in party dresses are eye-catching and bold. Here are the top 5 trends in party dresses .

The Sequin Dress

Everyone loves sparkle and if you don’t get the opportunity to wear it for the rest of the year Christmas is the one time that you can. All over sequins are hot news this year with gold and black also both being a really on trend colours when it comes to sequins. The sparkle of a sequin dress is balanced by the relative simple style which could include a t shirt style, vest style or even glamorous maxi dress style. One of the key influences on this trend is the amazing sequin creations by designer Ashish. We love this Toya sequin shift dress at Boohoo.

The Lace Dress

If you are looking for a party dress that is sexy in a very subtle way, then the lace dress is for you. Lace dresses are so huge this winter that there is most definitely a style to suit everyone from feminine fifties style dresses to more directional body con dresses. We love this lace tiered dress by Oasis which is the ultimate in luxury.

The Draped Dress

The draped dress is a trend that has been going strong for quite a few seasons now. This winter there are more draped party dress styles around than ever before with the one shouldered shape been amongst the most popular. The draped dress is probably one of the most flattering styles of party dress around this winter with its loosely fitting drapes concealing lumps and bumps and elongating the body. Lipsy have a great range of draped dresses that are perfect for partying in this Christmas. We love this one shouldered draped dress by Lipsy which definitely has a look for Greek Goddesss about it.

The Red Dress

Forget the Little black dress, this Christmas it is all about the little red dress. Red is such a great colour for Christmas and if you worry about whether red suits you,the red dress is available in a variety of shades to suit most skin tones. A bright red dress already makes a big style statement so one of the best ways to wear this trend is by keeping it simple. We love this Assymetric jersey drape dress by Lipsy.

The Leopard Print Dress

Leopard print is definitely seeing a revival this year and the winter sees it being featured on everything from accessories to coats. A Christmas party is a great time to wear leopard print as it is glamorous, bold and flattering. The leopard dress is such an eyecatching look that you will be sure to get noticed. we love this Janine cage back dress by Motel which combines a leopard ptint top with a slimming black skirt, perfect for dancing the night away.

Lipsy are most notable for their party dresses for women and older teens, but the new Pixie collection transcends the age gap somewhat, The 4th collection from Pixie Lott is quite the accomplishment, and from the evidence shown, the chart topping pop star who at only 20, is obviously somewhat of talent in fashion design too.
