Be Stylish At Your Office Christmas Party

The holidays are in full swing—parties left and right, family reunions, crowded malls, and social events galore. What's a girl to do? Prepare awesome outfits of course! We enlisted the help of Metro.Style Editor-in-Chief Ria de Borja to share tips on how to look and be your best at your office Christmas party. 

Do: Wear a festive outfit in honor of the holidays.
Don't: Overdo it. One red sweater and matching skirt is enough to express your cheer. You don't need to match it with deer antlers, a tutu and sparkly shades.

Snakeskin and embellishments are a great festive look for the holidays! Sport a statement blazer such as this for extra corporate appeal.

 

Do: Wear something you're comfortable in. You don't want to get decked out but unable to join in the celebration of what Christmas is partly about: enjoying the goodies!
Don't: Look as casual as you normally do in the office. Add those funky heels you've been dying to wear.

Wear those statement heels you've been reserving for the holidays. We love a velvet pair of booties!

 

Do: Join the Christmas presentation or show. It's always chic to laugh and have some good fun.
Don't: Go overboard. Nobody likes to see a drunken buffoon in a gathering where everybody else is having a good--not good til you drop--time.

Christmas company performances are a great excuse to bust out those pretty dresses you're too shy to wear on a normal office day. Just remember to still keep it chic!

 

Do: Be thankful for the job, the company, your life, your family, everything. When you feel grateful about work, you've won half the battle--you spend almost half your life at the office.
Don't: Exaggerate. You have one Christmas a year. No one wants to see tears at a fun, frolicking party! Merry Christmas!

While red is the go-to hue for Christmas, why not try an all green outfit in different textures? Definitely no elf vibes here, just pure office chic!
