Office Holiday Party Tips

A few of you have asked, "What should I wear to my office holiday party?" Office holiday parties can be tricky, especially if your party starts right after your shift.  I partnered with INC International Concepts for this perfect office holiday party look. Let me break down this look.



Through the work day, you want to make sure you are comfortable, appropriate, and festive.  Regarding comfort, sequins, and other festive fabrics can get in the way of that.  I went with this beautiful berry color, a tone perfect for the holidays.  These tones were easy to match, because of the pants, top and shoes were all a part of the INC International Concepts winter collection.  All the items are really comfortable and even thought the shoes do have a heal, it's a low heel.  You can choose other festive colors like red, gold, and cream. I added in this lace jacket because it brought in texture to the look, but unlike sequins, it wouldn't irritate me through the day. It also gives me something to cover up my arms with in a work setting.  In addition to what I'm wearing, INC International Concepts has a lot of looks that would be perfect for your office party.  You can shop them here.

Other Tips to help you find your perfect look:

  • Fit and flare dresses will allow you to be comfortable but wear a festive fabric. I know it's cold, but add a pair of tights to complete your look. 
  • No one wants to feel sequins all day long then into the night...I promise. You can do a monochrome look in your favorite holiday color like I did here, or opt for lace or velvet.  Both will be way more comfortable. 
  • Low heels like the ones I'm wearing are perfect to add a fabulous touch to your look, but keep your feet feeling fine. You can find my heels here
  • I know it's a holiday party, but it still works, and you still want to be appropriate.  While in this world, I watched necklines, skirt hems and how tight something looked. There is a time and place for everything, but your job probably isn't the time or the place.
  • Pack a mini makeup bag to amp up your makeup.  You can swap out lipsticks for something more festive, deepen your blush, and add a little shimmer to your eyeshadow. 

Style Notes:  My shoes from INC International Concepts are in size 12. I sized up one to accommodate my feet. I wear an 11 wide. I got the pants in a 24 and the top in size 20. The jacket in size 20 as well. There is stretch in the pants and top. The jacket is more structured because of the lace so there isn't much give. I would recommend going one size up.
