How to Dress for Your Office Christmas Party


Here are some looks I suggest basing your outfit on: The little black dress (LBD) is in its element here. Extremely versatile, pairs well with practically anything and on virtually any figure. Best of all, it doesn’t matter how many other women are also wearing one, the LBD defies all competition.


Cocktail dress: around knee-length, flowy or tight and room for you to add in sparkles or sequins, a cocktail dress is a no-brainer for a semi-formal event. Pair with strappy heels and a small bag or clutch for a flair of elegance and class. The power suit/blazer dress: If you want to embrace both your


feminine and masculine side, why not opt for a sexy suit. A good, fitted suit on a woman will accentuate your curves and fierceness. If dresses are not your thing, then this is the perfect outfit for you.


Black-tie means full-length. This is your opportunity to get really dressed up and show a sophisticated side of you to your work colleagues.  Don’t hold back here, go for the wow factor! Choose a dress that is figure-hugging but still has some stretch (especially if there will be food). 


It is becoming more popular to adopt a theme for holiday parties. Good news if you struggle with choosing what to wear as the dress code is already chosen for you.  Make sure you know the theme well in advance so you have time to plan and shop around!


Here are some styles that will be perfect for your casual or smart-casual office Christmas party: Jeans / trousers and a nice top: a classic look that never fails. Go for a darker pair of jeans / trousers with a cami top or party top and a heel for a chic and polished look. Add some festive


earrings if you want to add a little playfulness – it is still a party after all! A blazer is a great way to bridge the gap between casual and smart-casual. Be bold with your colour choice to stand-out. Or use it to add a little sparkle and glam into your outfit.


If the company culture and occasion allows it why not match your favourite Christmas Jumper / Dressy Knitwear with jeans a smart boot. You’ll be festive, cosy and casual all in one!
