MYNT NEWS: Holiday Office Party
Posted: Dec 12 2014
What to wear when partying with your boss and CEO can be a tricky predicament when the company holiday party rolls around. Going too conservative can make you look uptight, while a revealing ensemble will guarantee you as the morning water cooler talk. What to do?
Follow these rules and style suggestions for a stress-free holiday office party look.
Take your company culture into consideration. If your company already has a traditional, buttoned-up office dress code in place, also apply it to the holiday party. This is not the time to vamp it up in a super short skirt and low cut top. Wear your classic black suit and layer a top in a lux fabric underneath.
Accessories are your friends. Dress up a standard work outfit with a statement necklace or doorknocker earrings. Swap out your boardroom pumps for strappy, heeled sandals or stiletto booties. And don’t forget makeup, a red lip will work wonders in making you look instantly glamorous.
HOLIDAY MYNT: Adorn the Piped Bodycon Dress with oversized earrings and lots of bangle bracelets or cocktail rings. Go for fun patterned, black stockings and wear heeled patent leather booties. Create lots of volume in your hair and pull it back into a ponytail for a fun, flirty look; top it off with a smoky eye.
Glam up a classic work look in dressier fabrics. If a certain cut works for you, like a pencil skirt or a maxi dress, stick with that shape and wear it in dressier fabrics.
HOLIDAY MYNT: Opt for an updated pencil skirt with the Ponte Pencil Skirt, whose gold lame font panel instantly glams up the old office standby. If you regularly wear long skirts to the office, choose a fancier maxi dress like the Cold Shoulder Maxi Dress.
