The time has come to mix together with your co-workers and small talk with your boss in a place far disconnected from the comfort of briefcases, pie charts and water coolers. The time has come for the holiday office party!
I think most of all the fashion sites and blogs have already talked about what to wear to a Holiday Party.
You were probably told that for a work holiday party, you should avoid garments that may be considered jeopardy. It is never a good idea to wear something revealing for a celebration hosted by your boss. You can do simple, in a sophisticated way.
The jewellery you choose can make the outfit, and of course, the shoes (and there are always options with shoes). Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, texture and pattern. However, if you go bold with colour, keep your accessories in a supporting role.
A retro chic look with a twist can start with a simple pencil skirt and ruffled top. Added a cocktail ring and ruffled clutch for interest, and finished it off with some amazing bright heels! Who says classic has to be boring? Throw in some opaque black or patterned tights and you’re good to go.
The classic LBD (little black dress) gets dressier with patterned tights, bright high heels, and a splattering of sparkles. Our favourite fashion essential will never go out of style - well, as long as you keep on updating. Perfect for a formal occasion that you want to make a little more fun!
So with some of this guidance in mind here’s what I’ve chose for my holiday office party…
red shoes - local store
black tights - Calzedonia
black lace dress - Mango (detail)
red and black plaid coat with faux fur collar - Tally Weijl
black clutch - Parfois
culture pearls necklace - Hubby's gift
bracelet - gift from Hubby (Tie Rack)
perfume - Paris from YSL
