Classy is key when it comes to office party attire. Your look should modest and sophisticated. Since it is the holiday’s a little extra glitz and glam are totally acceptable but try to keep your look balanced. For example, try pairing a sequin top or skirt with another more simple and basic item. If your company has a relaxed dress code or the invitation calls for casual attire, why not dress up just a little? It’ll make the occasion seem more special if you sport a dress or skirt instead of your usual jeans. To keep things low-key, balance the dressy pieces with a plaid button-down, an everyday bag, and casual booties.

If you work in a trendier workplace or you’re going to dinner with your close co-workers, try dressing up a pair of skinny jeans or black pants with a bold, sparkly sweater or blouse. Oversized sweaters are huge right now, and when embellished and paired with sophisticated accessories, they have just the right amount of glitz for a holiday get-together.

If your company is hosting a holiday cocktail party or happy hour, we love classic and feminine attire! Try tucking a Processed with VSCO with a6 presetlace top into a black skirt, a gorgeous pant suit or a sophisticated cocktail dress.

Pair with statement accessories, a great clutch and finish the look with a classic red lip.

Remember that while any work related holiday party is just that, a party, things should be still be kept professional and respectful. Whatever type of work event is on your calendar this year keep your look sophisticated, classy and chic, earning even more of your employer and fellow employees respect.

It doesn’t get much better than an intimate evening with those you love the most, a  night surrounded by your family,friends, plenty of good food……. and style, of course! For family dinner parties you can still bring some festivity to your ensemble while still keeping it relaxed and low key.
