The holiday office party is your once chance each year to show everyone at work your unique, off-duty style, while still making a stellar impression on your boss and coworkers. But picking the perfect outfit can be tricky. You can’t be too sexy or showy, but you also don’t want to look boring or like you don’t care. We’ve rounded up our favorite holiday looks – which are totally office appropriate – to give you some inspo for your promotion-worthy holiday outfit!
Add some sparkle to your office basics for a holiday look that is completely professional, but totally in the festive spirit. Try adding a metallic sweater to your trusty pencil skirt or throw a blazer over a sequin dress for some added oomph. Bonus points: the office basics can be re-worn to work and the sparkly holiday styles will look great on their own for a completely different look!
Red-y to Work It
Wearing a classic cocktail dress in a holiday color is a no-fail way to look the part at your office party! Longer hemlines or covered shoulders make these dresses office appropriate, while stylish details like lace or a halter neckline make them perfect for showing off your fashionable side. Pair your holiday cocktail dress with metallic accents or go bold in a patterned heel!
Nothing says, “holiday ready,” more than festive fabrics like velvet! Try a gorgeous gold wrap dress to look merry and bright or put on an evergreen midi dress for a fabulous winter outfit. Need some additional coverage? Add a fun faux fur coat in a corresponding color to cover your shoulders and add some extra warmth.
Wear the Pants
Want to show everyone who’s in charge both in the office and at the party? Show off your boss babe style in a fierce jumpsuit. Basic black is perfect for showing off a red lip and professional accessories. For a holiday-ready look, try a forest green or burgundy jumpsuit in oh-so-special satin. Add metallic pumps and a shot of confidence, and this look will earn you major style points at your office party.
