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 party outfit can help ease your stress when you’re wracking your brain trying to make small talk. Whether your company holiday party is a large, formal affair or a small, potluck, office get-together, here are a few ideas for what to wear.
This cute sweaterdress is perfect for that conservative holiday get together that doesn’t require anything too special- the kind that takes place during your lunch break or just after work for an hour before you go home. The dress is conservative enough to wear all day at work, but the Christmas color and cute bow at the neck make it festive enough to say holiday season. This is a dress you can wear all winter and really get your money’s worth.
This pretty holiday blouse is one step up the festive scale. It’s festive for holiday time during work hours, and you can also wear it to neighborhood holiday parties too. The sleek black cropped pants keep things professional during business hours. After 5 when the company party begins, switch out your regular black pumps and your conservative black leather bag for these sexy ankle strap pumps and a silver crossbody bag. Both add a glam holiday touch.
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. For these occasions, look for a dress that combines elements of an everyday dress with those of a more formal piece. On the one hand, this navy dress is a simple fit-and-flare style. If it were done in a knit, it would be a lovely, everyday dress. But add lace detailing, and you’ve changed it into a more dressy piece.

For a big, glitzy bash, your best option is a classy cocktail dress.
Go easy on the cleavage for a company party, and don’t forget a little sparkle. Some glitzy earrings and a metallic bag add just the right magic. This stunning dress is festive for Christmas, but it’s also great to wear at other times of the year too. It’s timeless and elegant. The Little Black Dress – is always a winner. Check these out.
