This holiday season, you can easily steal the spotlight with looks that are sophisticated and suitable for work environments. Whether your office is splurging on an out-of-office party or you’re bonding with your colleagues in the coffee room during work, you’ll look extra festive and put together with these outfit ideas.
As with all work commitments, keep in mind a level of professionalism and conservatism is necessary. You can dress up with fun alternatives that are still smart using classic combinations and luxury fabrics that are perfect for the holidays. Here are our top holiday office party outfits that you can rock in the workplace this Christmas season.
This look is a classic for a relaxed event but can easily be made formal by adding accessories like sparkly jewelry and accessories. Women’s tunic sweaters are longer and cover more of the body, making them more conservative and, in some opinions, more dressy. Choose a soft, delicate material like cashmere, satin, or silk. Any pretty embellishments like crystals or embroidery are a plus and will add more details to your ensemble. If you’d like to veer on the more festive side, choose a tunic sweater in a bright red, green, or gold. You can wear your top with a pair of black leggings or tailored skinny jeans and boots. Jazz up your outfit with festive accessories like a sparkly necklace or big, bright earrings. If you live in a cold area and want to keep warm during your holiday party, pair a bright scarf with your outfit for an accessory that’s both functional and stylish.
For the comical and casual Christmas party, it’s time to whip out the old Christmas sweater. The more festive, the better! Choose a Christmas sweater with embellishments from embroidery to ringing decorative bells for a fun take on a holiday favorite. You can be as silly or as serious as you choose with Christmas sweaters, so we invite you to get creative! Pair your Christmas sweater with a pair of casual jeans in a dark wash for a look that is typically accepted in a more casual-professional setting. Dress up this look with accessories like fun earrings or patterned ankle boots.
Cashmere sweaters are an instantly luxe addition to any outfit. Whether you choose a cashmere turtleneck, crewneck, or cardigan, the soft, rich fibers of this fabric are cozy to the touch. Choose a cashmere sweater in a bright, festive color for the holidays, and pair it with a pair of women’s black jeans. The beauty of these bottoms is that they match with anything and, even though they are denim, they have a more formal look than traditional blue jeans. Opt for a skinny jean for a modern and sleek look, and pair them with booties for a fresh and trendy take on a closet staple. Dress up your look with bright jewelry like big earrings or a chunky necklace. If you’d rather keep this a classic style, wear your cashmere sweater and black jeans with simple, delicate earrings like pearl or diamond studs and simple black leather boots or heels.
For more formal occasions like a holiday dinner or party, wear a festive women’s dress. You can choose different styles from fit and flare to a maxi dress. Because it’s the holidays, we love a bright red dress with matching red lipstick. If you’re in a colder destination, you can pair your dress with tights and booties, or for a more moderate climate, simply wear a cardigan and special heels. There are few times when you can really dress up, and the holidays are a wonderful opportunity to have fun with your style. Pair your dress with fun accessories like a decorative clutch to store things in like your phone and lipstick. You can't go wrong with simple yet classic work holiday party dresses!
This look is an easy alternative to traditional dresses and is very on-trend for this holiday season. Midi skirts are longer, falling around mid-calf length, offering more coverage. Wear a midi skirt in a soft, stretchy fabric, from stretchy ribbed cotton to a supple satin. We love an olive green color for the holidays. Next, pair your midi dress with a similar tone cashmere turtleneck loosely tucked in the top. This style is the perfect blend of classic and contemporary and can be worn with everything from strappy heels to cool booties. Keep your accessories very simple with this look as it’s already a bold style. Try a pair of gold hoop earrings or simple studs with this outfit.
Remember, the most important thing when choosing the perfect outfit for your holiday party is that you are comfortable and confident. Choose an outfit that makes you feel beautiful and in which you can enjoy your party!
