How to Dress for your Company Party


The holiday season is here – party invitations are flocking to your inbox and you’re scrambling to pick out a killer ensemble for each event. Getting dressed for a gathering at your friend’s house is one thing, but the office? Now that’s something we all dread.  You don’t want to come off as a bore to your colleagues, but you don’t want to compromise on professionalism either. Regardless your office type, we’ve set up the perfect look for how you can look professional and fashionable for your upcoming office holiday party.


Office Type: Corporate

The off-shoulder trend might seem a little too daring for your 9 - 5 board meetings, but when easily concealed under a blazer, this dress takes you from professional to stylish. Pair it up with statement shoes and edgy accessories, you will definitely have your colleagues complimenting you through out the night.
