Concerts, clubs and going out on weekends can mean dressing the part. Highly music driven styles are derived from bands and the music scene itself, even at dance clubs. 

Dominant in recent years has been Hip Hop and R&B, but rock-and-roll and punk styles have begun to also play important roles.  Consequently leggings, jeans, tees, and leather are having a moment. Country and Western can mix in, while the summer music festival scene influences the BoHo style, more than club wear, cold shoulder looks are gaining momentum in the clubbing scene.

Jumpsuits in wide full legs, skinny silhouettes, and short romper styles are gaining popularity, along with off-beat pieces such as lace shorts.

Black is a club wear fashion basic that never goes out of style. Tight, ultra sexy, and short styles are common trendy dress styles chosen for going out to dance clubs. The Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise is influencing black leather looks with a racier edge, not for the faint of heart.

Internet Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Club Wear

Those looking for inexpensive clubbing options that are body conscious will have the best luck at some of the urban retailers.    Ashley Stewart specializes in value priced, highly body conscious dresses, tops, and leggings in bold prints and colors especially for the plus market in size 12 to 26W.  Teen and fast fashion hot spots such as Rainbow and Rue 21 have extended inventories on-line up to 3X and can be inexpensive sources for club chic.

City Chic's ultra-trendy Fast Fashion vibe means plenty of short, tight dresses and tops with bling and cutouts.  Faux leather jackets, leggings, skirts, and jackets can often be scored here.  Torrid stocks both trendier looks and those with a little bit of an edgier vibe.  An excellent spot for tee shirts, jeans, and faux leather jackets in addition to leggings and club tops, sizing here is XL to 6X.  The fact that they also carry licensed fashion from many of the biggest block buster super hero movies also means some fun limited edition finds that can make fantastic club gear.

More upscale, but equally body conscious are the looks at Eloquii in size 14 to 28W.  British retailers such as Simply Be and River Island can be gold mines for more unusual looks with European flare for sizes up to 28W.

Those looking for corsets that can be worn as evening tops will find the best full figured selection at Hips & Curves, which also carries items such as thigh high stockings and fishnet tights often popular with clubbers.  Some Steampunk gear is also available.  Sizes up to 6X.  More stylized items such as tulle crinolines in sizes up to 36W are frequently available at eShakti.   Meanwhile you can get both pin up style dresses and sequin flapper dresses at Unique Vintage in size S o 4X.

Back in the Saddle is the place to find a little Country Western bling with a great collection of gem studded leather belts in plus-sizes, among other finds.

For more upscale clubbing looks Macy's is the department store with the most youthful evening and party styles in size 14 to 24W. 

For ultra-tight club styles that need shapewear underneath we recommend Her Room which carries sizes up to 10X.
