Holiday Dress for Less - The Office Party

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.
— Colossians 3:23-24

Holiday Dress for Less lookbook continues with an outfit for the office party! With all other holiday preparations, sharing festive feels including our colleagues has been a part of our yearly traditions. Although when it comes to the holiday office party, things do not remain so easy. Office parties are a bit different from the other celebrations that we normally do with our friends. Balancing formal and festive can be tricky. Just remember one thing- if you are comfortable with your outfit, everyone else around you will be comfortable.

I mean… this color tho! I am a sucker for Kelly green but Kelly green embalmed with satin’s natural sheen? Come!!! On!!! This floor length maxi with a front split was my favorite choice for a formal and festive look for this year’s corporate festivities. I added gold accessories yo bring on the class and a leopard print coat is always a good idea as a topper for rooftop cocktails or walking in and out of venues. This dress is currently on clearance and I highly recommend to grab it now if your size is available. This style is flattering for almost every body type so I’m sure you will not regret it.

A couple more outfit tips for the office party before I go:

  • Try black leather pants with a festive sweater and stilettos.

  • Incorporate something sparkly with a classic piece. Maybe your favorite LBD with gold shoes, or sequined accessories.

  • Try a black turtleneck with a statement skirt and blingy necklace.

  • Go for a velvet touch. Velvet is never outdated. Adding it to any plain-looking outfit can easily glamorize the whole look.

  • Red lips! You can never go wrong with popping on some Ruby Wu or my personal fave this year- VIP Red to seal the deal with any outfit.

More importantly, have FUN at your office party and DANCE! You have worked so hard the whole year so enjoy the free dinner and free booze. Holiday Dress for Less continues next week so stay tuned and have a great weekend!
