25 Dresses For The Office Christmas Party

‘Tis the season to be jolly, quite literally, with endless rounds of drinks/parties and work do’s…so what to wear?

One of the questions I get asked most is what to wear to the office party. It’s not like you’re out with friends, it’s your work colleagues, so you want to keep the length decent and not too low cut (these are people you have to work with every day remember!) but you also want to really dress up. It’s about getting the balance right.

I’m a big fan of texture, leather, lace, brocade and velvet are great for Winter and can immediately create a strong evening look.  Alternatively, go all out for the sparkle and opt for sequin embellishment or fabrics with silver/gold flecks, which immediately create a festive party look. Check out Dolce & Gabbana’s autumn/winter collection (pictured top) for inspiration.

If you haven’t got time to change,  wear a simple black dress for work during the day and throw on a sequinned/sparkly cardi/jacket for the evening (Urban Outfitters and French Connection have some great versions). You’ll instantly update your look.  I’m a big fan of accessories, they can really make or break an outfit, so team with a sparkly clutch and chunky necklace and you’re ready to go.

I’ve picked out 25 dresses to help get you started…
