Lipsy are without doubt best known for their fabulous party dresses, and with Christmas almost here (EEKS!) you may be interested in knowing what their top 10 party dresses are.
The top ten lipsy women’s party frocks are very democratic and as a result a great barometer of what style girls are buying around the UK at the moment, and as you would expect the clamour for Glamour in the run up to Christmas is prominent, there are lots of embellishments and glitz, but as you would expect from one of the best known party dress names, a variety of styles which are very hot and on-trend for the moment such as Maxi dresses, one shoulder dresses, body con dresses and bandeau dresses.
One should consider that this top 10 is for the style of dress and not necessarily the colour, so don’t be afraid to buy one just because they are popular, whilst there is always a risk that you may end up at a party with someone wearing the same dress as you, Lipsy’s dresses are available in different colours, so you shouldn’t worry too much about that happening. We always advise that you should always choose a colour which complements your skin tone, and emphasise your personal brand/look with appropriate accessories and make-up, that’s the thing that will give your look the lift necessary to stand out from anyone else. The only way to minimise the risk of duplication is of course to have a one off piece made which has a one-off price as well.

Filed Under – Party Clothes
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.

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.

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.
