How to Decide What to Wear to Your Holiday Work Party
If you don’t have an office Christmas party outfit in mind, no time to shop and you’re really starting to stress out about it, try these ideas for a bit of stress relief.
- Accessorize Your Little Black Dress – It’s your old standby, but you can give it a new look with the right accessories. Add a bit of attitude with a silver or gold chain belt and/or contrast the black with red heels and handbag.
- Go Comfortably Chic – It’s winter after all, so there’s nothing wrong with pairing a stylish sweater and a dress or pants in a complementary colour and/or pattern. You can dial the “chic” level up or down depending on the shoes you choose.
- Get Eclectic – So either your office party is definitely not the place to break out of your shell…or it’s the perfect opportunity. Hopefully, it’s the latter and, if so, start thinking black boots with heels, a floral-pattern dress, contrasting blouse or sweater, and a bomber jacket. Bye-bye shell!
- When You’re Out of Ideas – Here’s what you do when nothing seems to work. Take your best or favourite day-to-day work outfit – even if that’s jeans and a t-shirt. Accessorize or add to it with something you don’t usually wear, like a jacket for the jeans and t-shirt. Get your hair done, maybe your nails too. In other words, just be you, but turned up a notch.
