December is a festive month and a common one for office holiday parties. When the invitations to merriment arrive, our minds quickly turn to what-to-wear. Planning party wear can be preoccupying—and pretty fun. Luxe fabrics and subtle shine work for professional holiday events. Skip sexy or overly sparkly garb. Instead, go for rich colors and textures that easily exude warmth and bonhomie. Jewel-toned blouses are perfect for business-turned-pleasure affairs. A classic trouser and and fun shoes complete the polished-from-head-to-toe look. Colorful and fun accessories are completely work-party appropriate. Inject playful elements into your outfit with unique earrings and shocking pink boots—not only will you get noticed, but you’ll also collect compliments. I’ve put together a cute look for celebrating the holiday with office mates whether it is during or after work hours.
