It’s that time of the year again: that seasonal conundrum of WHAT TO WEAR? to the annual office Christmas party.
The second? Unless the theme is ugly Christmas sweaters, then make somewhat of an effort. If your party is right after work and you don’t have the time to change then at the very least slip on a pair of pretty party shoes and/or a decorative piece of jewellery.
It doesn’t have to be too much, just something festive. You can keep them incognito until the night kicks off. If you want to up the ante on the accessories, the only thing you need is a simple pair of drop-dead drop earrings to keep in your bag. They’ll add a slight shine to your ensemble if the rest of your look is pared back. Speaking of bags….
Luckily, there are easy one-step tricks to the holiday office party trade. The best thing to do is to keep it simple yet with a little more chic ‘oomph’ than usual. Try a sleek A-line tea length skirt; it has that immediate Grace Kelly effect of polish. If your work place is casual and you usually wear jeans then opt for a black cigarette pant and oxford button-down or lacy blouse.
Rule #3 – if you’re into glam & glitter then this is the month to pull out all the stops.
Rule #4: no matter where you work, remember you’re still amongst your colleagues so go easy on the liquor.
Think about this old quote that Phyllis Diller once said:
“What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day”
Rule #5 – have fun, make it festive and look and feel your most FABULOUS!
HAVE A MERRY TIME
