Dress with Style Head to Toe for Upcoming Holiday Festivities
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
We’re in the midst of the holiday season, which means our social calendars are jam packed with get-togethers, dinners and parties. While in reality it would be great to have a couple of hours to get ready, more often than not we find ourselves rushing right out of our office door to a dinner party — but just because you’re coming from your desk doesn’t mean you can’t look chic!
Regardless of the dress code at your office, there’s three universal tips that can instantly transform your look: a red lip, statement jewelry and a dressy pair of pumps. In less than five minutes, you can easily go from day to night. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, you can also pull your hair in a top knot and put on a little more eye makeup for a dramatic, nighttime look. Depending on your outfit, a statement cuff, necklace or earrings are the way to go.
If you, (like me), often carry a roomy purse to work it might be best to leave your bulky bag behind and carry a chic clutch instead. The box clutch is so in style, and it adds a dressy look to any get-up.
It’s remarkable how quickly you can transform your look with just a few key accessories and makeup — but that’s not all! Going from desk to dinner during the holiday season also calls for the perfect dress. For the office holiday party, I would stay away from a plunging neckline or a super form-fitting frock. However, just because you want to look appropriate in front of the boss doesn’t mean you can’t let your personal sense of style shine through in something trendy. You can easily throw a blazer over a sleeveless dress for the office. Keep your clutch and jewelry in your bag and simply take off the blazer, slip on your statement jewelry and you’re ready to go! I think this dress is the perfect option for a soiree with your co-workers. It’s trendy and dressy while still looking totally appropriate.
It’s great to invest in a classic dress. Not only can you re-wear it throughout the holiday season, but once the spring rolls around it will still come in handy for cocktail parties and weddings. Again, throwing a jacket over the dress and wearing a modest heel is enough to dress it down when you’re at work — but it’s also so easy to transform for party-time.
When it comes to socializing during the holiday season, you honestly can’t go wrong with a little black dress — especially because you can easily dress it up or down.
The holiday season is a busy time, but there’s no need to stress when it’s time to get dressed! Let your individual sense of style shine through in an appropriate yet chic get-up and you’re sure to impress your colleagues with your fantastic flair for fashion.
