For many of us, the office party is just round the corner and we are still confused as to what should be worn. In saying this, many of us have wardrobes that are overflowing with clothes, yet, bizarrely we just cannot seem to find a single piece of clothing that would be appropriate for an office party. Here are some handy tips on what clothes and in particular accessories that are perfect for the coming office Christmas parties.
- It is important not to wear clothing that will make you the topic for hot gossip the morning after the party. If something about your clothes does not seem right, then it might be best not to take the risk. When in doubt, choose your outfit according to your party venue, and maybe even ask other what they are planning on wearing.
- Pick something that is dressier than what you would wear to office on a casual Friday. The idea is to pick something that is casual and smart yet still represents you as a professional.
- Consider what kind of a party is it going to be. If it requires you to stand for a long time or dance, avoid very high heels. In case you will be required to go on stage for a speech perhaps, avoid short evening dresses and short skirts. Although it maybe be tempting avoid wearing bright colours, instead stick with darker colours with sheen and shimmer.
- Unless it is a black-tie affair, the best option would be to team a smart dark pair of jeans, with a stylish shirt. If you are looking to trendy it up a little, try a stylish top and simple accessorise with a bold necklace and a bangle. It is always important to make sure that the top half like the bottom half of the outfit, is not too revealing.
- Most importantly have fun with your accessorising. Perhaps opt for a striking piece ofÂ jewellery, a shimmering bolero and a glittery clutch handbag to finish of the look beautifully.
- Embrace Christmas and all it glittering glory. However do not over to the shimmer and glitter. Consider a neat pair of chandelier earrings and a chunky metallic bangle to set the look off wonderfully.
- A cocktail party is normally a Christmas office party protocol. Traditionally a cocktail party calls for a Little black dress (LBD) with plenty of accessories. However, it is important to mention that if one opts for a classic LBD for the office Christmas party, make sure the LBD it is not too revealing.
As Christmas draws nearer and nearer many of us are thinking about what evening wear to sport for all the up and coming social gatherings that occur this time of year.
First and foremost, if youÂ would not wear your chosen outfitÂ to the office, you probably should not wear it to the office party. Of course, your clothes can be more festive than those you wear to work on a daily basis, such as sequins, colour, and sparkles just so long as it is appropriate.
When it comes to choosing an appropriate office party outfit, it is important not to forget the difference between a party with friends and a party with colleagues. Undoubtedly, a party will always remain a party but your decision in your outfit will speak volumes and will perhaps leave a lasting impression.
When attending an unofficial social party, we do not feel the need to sport formal outfits or sport a professional look. However, it is fair to say that there needs to be a greater degree of consideration for office parties. With a view to this, start with the primary rules, first and foremost nothing should be too short or too revealing, in saying that you can still wear flattering clothing and outfits with colour.
Secondly keep it simple, when in doubt going for the classic little black dress (LBD) is always a safe bet. You cannot go wrong with a trusty LBD. Use your LBD as a foundation and simply embellish with glamorous accessories such as delicate earrings, a striking necklace, a pretty clutch and fabulous pair of mid-high heels. Thirdly, it is important not to wear heels that are too high as you will most definitely be moving round to socialise with your colleagues, consequently comfort is a key factor to consider.
As with all clothing decisionsâ?? knowing your body type and shape is essentially the most significant factor. If your body type is not considered right from the start the outfit will never look quite right no matter how lovely it is. Accordingly there will be a chance you wonâ??t feel entirely comfortable and confident throughout the evening and sadly this may be come across to your colleagues.
Christmas is round the corner meaning that party season is not far off; meaning is that time of year to start thinking about what to wear for your up and coming social events. For many women, this time of year is daunting and slightly intimidating. Figuring out which outfit to wear for each individual party or dinner can be tricky and time consuming. Nonetheless this doesnâ??t have to be the case.

A safe option is to start with theÂ little black dress (LBD). Black is considered the ideal base colour for any party outfit. Black as a colour is slimming, adaptable and tremendously glamorous. The classic LBD is hugely popular due to the fact that it is so easy to â??vampâ?? up with the correct accessories and an elegant pair of high heels. The classic LBD can be worn for most occasions, nevertheless for those who are not huge admirers of dresses or showing off your legs, follow the same principle of keeping the look all black but simply try a two piece combo. Moreover, if money is a little tight leading up to Christmas after all the gift purchases, fret not! It is completely acceptable for the same black outfit to be worn and re-used time and time again, just so long as you revise the accessories used or add a splash of colour no one will be the wiser.
Consider your trusty LBD or black two piece outfit to be the backbone of your party season wardrobe. With this stable item in your wardrobe, you will always have something to wear for every event. A LBD or two piece black outfit work wonderfully well with accessories that are embellished or jewelled, adding an instant air of elegance and Christmas sparkle. Get a collection of accessories, such as earrings, necklaces, belts, scarves etc. and prepare to mix and match or even perhaps clash a little.
If you feel your accessories are quite flamboyant, bright, colourful or sparkly, fret not this is the time of year to go all out; it is Christmas season after all. Just be sure to wear your token black outfit with different accessories, different makeup and vary your hairstyle for each party or event you attend. Stick to these simple rules and you will confidently step into the party season with a fresh new look each time.
