What do I wear to a work holiday party?

Since you are undoubtedly fabulous and focused at work, an office holiday party can be the perfect opportunity to show off your fun and fashionable side to your co-workers. And while the only rule here is to remain somewhat modest and entirely professional, we recommend these three approaches to showing off your stylish side.

Must-Try Tip #1: Go For All-White

Since much of our day-to-day office wear tends to be heavier on the black and grey side, try a refreshingly opposite look: all white. Think monochromatic winter wonderland with heavier, seasonably appropriate fabrics like wool, felt, chunky knits, and cashmere

White trousers or skirts look lovely with delicious sweaters, while blazers or coats can be layered with abandon for an unapologetically chic ensemble. 

This crisp but cosy palette can feel uber-festive with metallic accessories. A shiny heel, a gold clutch, or sparkly necklace can be the perfect amount of glitz. Don't be afraid to try adding all three!

Must-Try Tip #2: Add A Touch of Sequins

If your holiday party is straight after work and you don't have time for a total change, try layering on some sequins that can make an otherwise serious office look feel fun

Try a sequined blazer over a blouse, an embellished cardigan over a crewneck top, or even a longer coat with touches of sparkle can do the trick. 

Must-Try Tip #3: Try A Nutcracker-Inspired Outfit

A look that references this classic holiday ballet can feel warmly nostalgic and totally unexpected. A tutu’s not required; instead pair a ballet-like full skirt with a more shrunken sweater or blouse. 

To edge up this very feminine look, you can try a biker jacket over a buttoned-up black blouse or tee instead. Sweep you hair back in a sweet bun and pair with delicate, danceable shoes.
