Well, it’s officially the holiday season. Whether that induces panic of the first order or provides a pleasure-filled anticipation, chances are your office holiday party outfit conundrum has already begun.
I’m making a few bold assumptions here; you work in an office, with other people, who hold a holiday party, AND the party is a glamour step up from your normal attire. Or, you have an event to attend directly from your office that requires a quick and easy change. In my case, this is all wishful thinking. But give me any excuse to dream about glamorous occasions . . . !
Now I’m pretty sure you all know the basic formula for how to make this work. A dress with a jacket or sweater and boots for the office, glammed up with evening shoes, a festive wrap and evening appropriate jewelry. Or slim black pants with an office basic shirt for work, magically transformed with a festive top, drop dead jewels and some fantastic heels. Oh, and don’t forget the evening bag. Changing that out for your laptop-toting workbag will instantly make you feel ready for a party.
So since you’ve already got the basics down (and you should always shop your closet first, seeking out those party worthy transformables), let’s feast our eyes on some holiday-worthy inspiration. I figure a lot of evening wear elements have made their way into office wear already, and if they haven’t, they should have, for goodness sakes!
