19 Best Polished Office Holiday Party Style Ideas

 

@maryorton

We know office holiday parties occur every year. Yet for many of us, holiday parties creep up on the schedule. Every time.

We scramble for what to wear.

Many of us already own what we need to create fabulous office holiday party outfits. We simply require a little inspiration as a starting point, and maybe one new addition to uptick our festive style to stunning status. Others need to find the full look.

Whatever your starting point, discover ideas for conservative to creative office holiday gatherings, as well as office cocktail parties right here.

One rule of thumb to keep in mind for professional holiday dressing is the amount  of shine in your outfit. Less shine reads more professional, more shine works better for office cocktail, and leave the most shine for your friends’  holiday gatherings.

For a successful daytime business holiday party look, avoid looking overly sexy, and aim for luxurious fabrics and texture such as velvet and silk in jewel tones. A jewel toned silk blouse paired with a great pair of interesting trousers or skirt will do the trick to take you from business day to night. Or try a dress paired with a blazer that can be removed for evening.

Interesting shoes and clutches create complete, festive yet polished, ensembles.

For holiday cocktail events a little more sparkle is appropriate. Opt for metallic fabrics, and twinkly embellishments. If you are not the dress type, try a metallic top paired with a festive color pant or a neutral pant to subdue the look a little.

Here is all the inspiration you need to style yourself for business holiday events this year:
