Office to Holiday Cocktail Party Style

With the passing of Halloween, we step forward into the new season. Winter? No. Holiday season. A season of snow, glitter, and more baked goods than one should reasonably consume. However, this season is notorious for being an incredibly busy one. Although I can’t help you soldier through your errands, I can make your party outfit hassle-free. Take a look at First Class Fashionista’s top picks for a seamless office-to-holiday party look, and go from work to festivities without missing a beat!

Something Different

If you aren’t a big ‘holiday’ dress person, fret not. My advice? Get a unique dress that you love that goes with the general fall/winter color schemes and make it your own. That way you can feel good about what you’re wearing, and I promise your companions will remember ‘that one really cute dress you wore to the holiday party’. Don’t go overboard on adding the glitter, but amp it up as needed to feel festive!

Going for Glam

If you love holiday glam and glitter, don’t be afraid to rock it. For the office, choose pieces that are neutral enough to be appropriate for the workplace, and throw on a sequined shrug or high-shine shoes after clocking out to take your look to the next venue.

And last, but not least, a pick from the little black dress category. Chic, re-wearable, and great for tons of occasions, there is a reason this dress is a staple. Keep it conservative in the office and add some glam and statement jewelry to take it from day to night. Mix classic pieces and more festive ones for a flirty and fun vibe.
