Having to decide on a formal outfit to wear every day to the office is trial enough, but having to choose the right office holiday party dress is a whole other problem. It’s a fine line between being stylishly formal and downright overdressed.
With the New Year around the corner and the festivities on the rise, the chances of having an end-of-the-year office party or some other get together are close at hand. Have you decided what to wear?! Always at the top of the list, or at least it should be! Especially when opportunities around the mistletoe may arise. Before you overstress and underdress, here are some fabulous holiday party dresses that will help you sum up the year on a high note.
An elegantly formal way is to show up to an office party and be dressed for the occasion is with a chic top. A good suggestion is this pin tucked top with a split neck, a fabulous option available at anntaylor.com. Try to go for deep colors that emphasize your overall appearance. Black and white are in this year too, Alice+Olivia is an awesome brand for these sorts of ensembles. You can pair this chic upper with a stylish wide-legged pant or a high-waist formal trouser. Think formal yet professional.
If you want to stay more traditional a great choice is to go for the classic holiday party style dresses. Whether it’s A-Line style or Bodycon form-fitting, go again for royal colors, velvet (even crushed velvet is back in!), or a neutral shift in sequins. All pair nicely with a simple choker or studded earrings. An accent clutch and some neutral pumps will be elegant yet understated. You can even opt for lighter eye makeup and a red lip.
Skirts have always been a lady's dream. However, making them formal and striking at the same time requires some tact. Then again, your style is your best weapon. Try pairing it with a trendy monochrome printed top.
A great office party choice is a beautiful asymmetrical skirt with an inspiring print, that you can buy at ASOS.com. Wear this to your office party this month and let the compliments roll in!
