What are you wearing to your corporate holiday party? Luckily POPSugar rounded up 31 amazing looks for office holiday parties! I analyzed them, and here are my favorite five for women in leadership.
These holiday party looks are classic with a twist to keep you looking stylish while feeling powerful and confident:
1. Bold Black and White- Always classy and powerful, you can never go wrong with black and white. The Valentino Rockstud pumps and Stella McCartney mini tote create subtle holiday party glam.
2. Trouser Jeans And High-Neck Top- For a smart casual party, this formula spells class and style. What makes this look work? The updated ankle length of the trouser jean, the elevated black blouse, and the festive gold ankle strap heels.
3. Fit and Flare – Fit and flare is fun, feminine and stylish – always a great choice for a party. By adding gloves and a clutch this look has a luxurious feel for a dressy corporate holiday party.
Simply wear a black blazer to tone down the red during the day- and pull the gloves out after 5pm!
4. A Special Suit- For women in leadership who do not want to wear a dress, a special suit worn in an interesting way is an amazing option. Ok, yes this one is a little low cut – add a shell, or pin your blazer at a more appropriate place!
5. Culottes – Culottes and palazzo pants everywhere on the runway and in stores right now. If you have been wanting to try a pair – the holiday party is a perfect time to add this trend to your wardrobe if you work in a creative office environment.
Try simple black, white or camel to tone down the look- and pair with sleek pointy toe pumps to refine your style. Finally – make sure your top is simple and fitted to offset the edgier culottes.
A long simple ladylike dress- This example is borderline for an office party because of the very low back. especially in this conservative DC area. But I love the lady like silhouette paired with an edgy zipper detail.
Have fun at your holiday events!
