This is truly the month for parties and playing dressup. Have your holiday parties already begun and I am assuming all your weekends from now until new years, are all blocked off =))

While dressing up during the holidays is so much fun with the umpteen styles and sales – there’s one party that requires a little bit of strategy as well! It’s the office holiday party. You want to show your festive side yet stay professional.LovePlayingDressup-AdriannaPapell-Lace-PetiteBlogger-OOTD-HolidayDress-OfficeParty1

Few things to keep in mind, while picking out your office holiday party outfit :

  • T’is not the place for sexy

Even if it’s the occasion where you are encouraged to let-loose – go the classy route! Nothing too revealing, sheer or tight. If you pick a dress or a skirt – choose something that hits the knee or below.

  • Play safe with prints & texture

Trust me, you do not want to be the main topic of discussion at the water-cooler the next day ( for the wrong reasons ) – so stay away from leopard prints or shiny leather pants. Instead choose something sophisticated as lace, satin or dressy fabrics like this jacquered one. That’s why I love this lace dress, it is perfect for  the office party and otherwise as well, not to mention that fact that it is incredibly flattering.

  • Statement piece

While it is cute to put on the shiny red nose or sport a sweater that lights up ( please don’t!! ),  let this party be where you bring out your new collar necklace or the in-trend tassel earrings. These can be quite some conversation starters with the office ladies.

  • A little sparkle

This is after-all a holiday party and a little glitter & shimmer is always appropriate. I absolutely adore this gold scarf & these Adrianna Papell flats are just perfect, if you don’t want the spend the entire evening in heels.
