Finding the perfect dress for an Office Holiday Party can be a bit tricky. You want something that is festive and cute, but doesn’t scream “take me to the nightclub now!” According to the Management Study Guide, “Party at the office does not mean one has the liberty to wear revealing clothes.” Wearing a dress that shows too much cleavage or a skirt that shows your underwear is not impressive. Although the party may be an after-work function, you will be surrounded by co-workers and more importantly, supervisors. While they may not treat you as if you are on-the-clock, supervisors are constantly overseeing employee grooming and behavior. Remember, you don’t have to go on an entire shopping spree to find an appropriate outfit for the office holiday party. Mix festive colored blouses that may be hiding in your closet (i.e., silver, red, gold) and match them with a knee-length black skirt. Fun jewelry can give flair to any outfit. At A*cute, we LOVE dresses! Below are a few inspirational holiday office party dresses. What are you planning to wear to your office party? Comments Welcomed
“Can I borrow your black and white checkered scarf?” That’s what I used to say to my mother as a teenager when I wanted to borrow her wool houndstooth scarf in the winter. Now that I know the pattern is called houndstooth, it makes it much easier for me to go into the store and tell the sales woman the exact print that I’m looking for
As I browsed through the mall in Long Island a few weeks ago, I noticed that a few store windows displayed their mannequins in houndstooth patterns for the fall, such as Forever 21, Joe Fresh, and Banana Republic. Hey, even Strawberry is up on the trend! Instead of shopping in my mother’s closet for houndstooth this fall, I’m thinking of picking a few items for myself at the store. The houndstooth pattern looks exceptionally well with bright colors, as you can see in the image below of the yellow top paired with a houndstooth skirt from Banana Republic. Below are a few of my top choices for the fall. What do you think?
