Dress To Go From The Office To A Holiday Party

Seasonal Versatility

With Black Friday over, it’s beginning to feel a lot like the holidays. It’s also the time of year when we do more partying in one month than we did all year, and the invites to swanky soirees are just rolling in. But like you, we no more have the time to spend all day prepping for each fete than we have enough money to spend on different outfits for every occasion. So style’s little helpers (us, of course) have been busy hunting for the perfect look to take you straight from your office to a holiday party or cocktails.

Day To Night

While you might have your party calendar all planned out for this month, in all likelihood a few spontaneous holiday get-togethers with friends will pop up unexpectedly. Why not go to work prepared for this to happen? We’re thinking of wearing a chic office-to-party look like this one every day until the New Year (just to be safe!)

How To Do It

The key to a perfect desk to dancing look is a piece that we’re glad to know is one of this winter’s big trends — the pencil skirt. While we think a leather or vegan leather pencil like this Tinley Road one is a perfect option to combine luxe texture with polish, any interesting fabric like velvet or brocade would be lovely. A delicate, embellished sleeveless blouse in a soft shade like mink, wine or gold is a great top to take you from work to play, just top it with a structured blazer like this Alexander Wang velvet one. Contrasting textures is what the season’s all about. Now complete the look with bold hued pumps, a fun clutch and a show-stopping statement necklace, and you are ready to celebrate!
