Choosing the right outfit for any outing can be stressful, much more so during the holidays! Holiday parties are incredibly popular from office parties to meeting your significant other’s extended family for the first time. How will you know what to wear? Do you wear a festive “ugly” sweater or do you dress up to make great first impressions? Depending on what kind of holiday party you are attending, there may be a dress code too! Wherever your holiday party is, CoverGirl Shapewear is here with fashion tips for holiday office parties.
Many offices choose to throw holiday parties, and to keep it small, they might just have a small one during work hours. This is a nice break from sitting at desks and it allows you to celebrate the end of a year of accomplishments together!
Choosing the right outfit for a holiday party during work hours is easy. You can choose to wear what you would normally wear to your office and keep it business casual, but you can also add festive touches. A holiday tie, an “ugly” sweater, or some fun reindeer ears are generally pretty acceptable.
When in doubt, stick to the office dress code. Remember that you are at work so you should try to avoid wearing anything too over the top or that could be considered inappropriate.
A holiday office party that is held after hours can also be a lot of fun. After-hours office parties are a little more relaxed and you have more leeway with what you can wear. In these situations, you should choose to dress up. Velvet dresses, high boots, and elegant velvet coats are perfect for women.
Men should dress up as well. Avoid being too casual by wearing jeans and a jumper. This is the perfect occasion to wear a nice ironed, collared shirt (tie optional).
Here are some general tips that both men and women can benefit from this holiday season.
Have fun and dress up, but remember that you will be around co-workers and supervisions who still have to see you in a professional setting.
