Do you have an after work holiday party leaving you no time to change? Or, are you attending a party held during your nine to five?
What to wear to a holiday work party
Basic office party tips:
- Play up your nails & accessories for easy holiday cheer
- Pair miniskirts with opaque stockings and long sleeves tops
- Splurge on wardrobe staples instead of trends. Pick pieces that can be worn throughout the year
Below are some office appropriate holiday party outfit suggestions listed by party dress code.
What is smart casual holiday attire?
What is cocktail attire for office parties?
Cocktail attire allows for a range of clothing options for women. For a man this dress code can simply call for a dark suit jazzed up by nice cufflinks or a statement watch or tie. This category basically allows for more personality to come through. I personally have gone for dressy pants paired with a silk blouse or cashmere sweater with a focus on a red lip and jewelry. But I love the idea of a sparkly sequined skirt.
In the past I’ve gone with pants because during cold winter months I rather skip the skirt even if it is paired with opaque tights but cocktail attire is truly synonymous with knee length skirts.
What is business formal holiday attire?
Focus on finding a dress that complements your skin tone rather than one that represents the occasion.
Just remember that a splurge on a dress like this amazing hot pink one can be tricky because the dress will be more easily remembered. But wow, it is so worth it! 🙂
