As Christmas is fast approaching, thoughts of gift shopping, mulled wine and turkey feasts are soon joined by the considerations of festive dresses, glitzy make-up and the annual office party. Although it might seem you need an entirely new wardrobe to fulfil all the new social occasions you have coming up, I’ve devised a couple of go-to outfits which will swiftly take you from the office to the party in question – no touch ups or changing required!
If this Lipsy dress is good enough for Kim K, it’s good enough for us. The length is formal enough for office attire (perhaps team with a pair of ballet pumps or heeled booties for a less party inspired look) but ‘cocktail’ esque that it suits any festive party occasion too. The faux fur clutch is deceptively spacious, with enough room for all the ‘essentials’ and in keeping with the trend, without overwhelming your outfit. The understated jewellery means that the focus is on your LRD (little red dress, in case you were wondering) while the black mac covers the ‘showiness’ off for the work-day!
If you’re more likely to opt for a sophisticated and stylish office party, Dirty Martini is the ultimate venue for classy cocktails and delicious nibble platters. Ensure you wear an outfit such as the one below – understated, yet undoubtably glamorous. This taps into two key trends this party season – co-ords and faux fur, in addition to adding a rose gold accessory. You really can’t go wrong!
