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 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 in between, here are a few ideas for what to wear to a company holiday party.
1. Wear A Festive Sweater Dress
This pretty sweater dress is perfect for an office Christmas party during your lunch break or after work for an hour before you go home. It’s classic enough to wear all day at work, but the gorgeous cranberry color, ruffle sleeves, and hem make it festive to say the holiday season.
2. Wear Anything Red or Green
When in doubt about a work Christmas party outfit, remember that anything red or green is perfect for injecting a little ho ho ho into your workplace.
This red wrap jumpsuit with the sash waist belt would be lovely at a dressy work holiday celebration.
Or wear a red or green blouse with a black skirt or dress pants to look festive but professional. Keep your accessories classic, streamlined, and polished. It’s still business, after all, and you want to give off the right vibes.
5. Wear Luxurious Fabric and Shine
An easy way to add a little razzle day to a casual office party is by wearing a classic piece incorporating sparkle. For example, I’ve teamed up this lovely gray cable knit sweater with a black sequin pencil skirt to add some holiday shine.
These sleek, pointy gray leather booties add a professional touch, and this gorgeous green suede back is fabulously festive! Add a pair of cute earrings, and you have a glam, office-ready holiday look.
P.S. Not only is this festive for holiday parties during work hours, but it would also look chic at neighborhood holiday parties. It’s also a refreshing change from the little black dress.
6. Try Cropped, Black, Flowy Pants
Some company holiday get-togethers involve a sit-down dinner at a fancy restaurant that calls for dressy. Striking the right note when the dress code is ‘Dressy’ can be challenging. You want to wear something more unique than every day without being too over-the-top.
One of the most popular Christmas party outfits is a pair of flowy black cropped pants worn with a silky blouse in festive colors or a luxe velvet top.
This stunning burgundy top looks party-ready paired with these glam culottes. Worn with a pair of sexy pumps, this is a very chic look. No. A necklace is needed for this top with the chocker neckline, but don’t forget gold, dangly earrings to add some Christmas glam.

7. The Classic Cocktail Dress Always Works
You can never go wrong with a little black dress for a cocktail party or a more formal holiday party. With its sheer lace neckline, this classic style sheath is slightly sexy without letting everything hang out.
Always remember a work party is still a work function, so err on the conservative side. Please make sure to keep your look simple, classy, and chic. This dress would be a good choice.

8. An Elegant Velvet Dress is Holiday Perfect
A velvet dress with a sleek look and luxurious texture is sophisticated for a company party with a more formal dress code. Red is the classic December color, but darker colors like blue or green velvet gowns are beautiful and modern this time of year.
When accessorizing, a pair of gorgeous bow statement earrings go beautifully with velvet party attire.
What will you be wearing to your holiday party during the festive season?
9. White and Gold is a Gorgeous Corporate Combo
If your company party is a more formal cocktail event, this outfit is full of glitz but still very polished and professional. You can’t go wrong with winter white, warm gold, and champagne accents. Whether you are the boss or want to be one, this is a winning look!
