There are few events harder to dress for than a work-sponsored holiday party. You want to be fun and festive, while avoiding being the center of any post-party wardrobe gossip. What you can wear really depends on the environment of your workplace, but there are a few good rules for everyone to follow—unless of course you work here at Shopbop, where, as you can imagine, the dress code is"anything goes."
Using a throwback from middle school, skirts and dresses that extend below the tips of your fingers are a safe bet. And if bare legs still feel like too much, tights and boots make a shorter skirt more office-friendly.
Sheer panels and cutouts are everywhere right now, and with the right placement, they can work for these occasions. Keyhole details, mesh sleeves, and sheer straps have a night-out feel, but keep your look appropriate.
Here is where you can really let loose. A statement necklace, pair of killer pumps, or armful of bracelets will have people talking, in a good way. Even the most simplest is transformed with eye-catching accessories, and they’re a scandal-free way to show off your outside-of-work fashion personality.
