Socializing with your boss on a Friday night, watching a co-worker get sloshed on eggnog, and wondering if anyone will notice you are double-dipping at the buffet can make company holiday parties stressful. But, they can also be a lot of fun.
Knowing you look fabulous in the perfect Christmas party dress can help ease your stress when you’re wracking your brain trying to make small talk. Whether your work party is a large, formal affair, a small, potluck office get-together or something inbetween, here are a few ideas for what to wear to a company holiday party.
1. A Festive Sweater Dress
This pretty sweaterdress is perfect for the holiday work get together takes place during your lunch break or just after work for an hour before you go home. It’s classic enough to wear all day at work, but the Christmas tree green color and pleated bell sleeves make festive enough to say holiday season.
During business hours wear this dress with black pumps, a day bag and conservative earrings. When party time comes, slip into open toe sandals or sleek booties, dangly earrings and a chain bag or clutch.
2. Anything Red
When in doubt, wear red. A clean-cut, simple holiday party dress like this one, above, looks cute and Christmasy in this cheery shade of red. Pair it with black suede booties and a chic leather bag for a look that is business-like but Santa-ready too.
3. Luxurious Fabric and Shine
An easy way to add a little razzle day to a casual office party is by pairing a luxe black velvet top with plaid dress pants and then throwing in a bit of shine. This feminine black velvet scalloped top with the black and white herringbone pants is pretty and professional by day, but add silver shoes and sparkly jewelry for the party and you have a glam holiday look.
Not only is this festive for holiday time during work hours, but this would also look great at neighborhood holiday parties too.
4. Cropped, Black, Flowy Pants
Some company holiday get-togethers involve a sit-down dinner at a fancy restaurant which calls for dressy. Striking the right note when the dress code is ‘Dressy’ can be a challenge. You want to wear something that is more special than every day but without being too over-the-top.
One idea is a pair of flowy black cropped pants worn with a silky blouse or luxe velvet top. This stunning velvet wrap top looks party ready paired with these glam culottes. Worn with a pair of sexy pair of pumps, this is a very chic look. Don’t forget a pair of gold, dangly earrings to add some sparkle and shine.
5. Something a Little Sexy (but Still Profesional)
For a cocktail party or big, glitzy bash, your best option is a classy cocktail dress. You can dress a little sexier, but that doesn’t mean letting everything all hang out. Always remember it’s still a work function and to err on the side of conservative. Keep your look simple, classy and chic. This fitted sheath dress with the satin ribbon trim that wraps you up like a Christmas present is a great example of what you could wear.
6. Some Dazzle
When your company party is being billed as a very fancy, fun night then some sparkle and sequins may be in order. I love this glam version of the little black dress. This classic shift is refined and elegant for a business social, but fun and modern too.
