What To Wear To An Office Holiday Party

Hey, Party Pants!

It’s getting to be holiday party season, and sometimes the line between professional and party blurs when it comes time for your office or work fete. So what will the most fashionable girl in the office be wearing at this year’s party? We think she turns it up a notch from the expected LBD and heels. This Matthew Williamson look from his FW12 collection just proved to us once again why pants are the new party dress.

The Pants Factor

Wearing pants to cocktail parties or semi formal holiday events is no longer saved for the gal who has a phobia of showing her calves to her cubicle neighbours. Instead, it’s the most modern way to make a fashion statement and impress the office peers with your seemingly inherent style sense. A luxe look punctuated by a decadent brocade trouser is on our holiday wish list.

Copy The Runway

We love the delicious concoction of wine hues in this look, from merlot to bordeaux. Rich red, deep grape and black cherry blend together for the season’s sought after “I look like a bottle of vino tinto you could never afford, darling” trend. We’ve chosen an affordable pair of Topshop brocade pants for you to base your holiday style on, and extras that will make sure you shine at this season’s celebrations. A pale statement necklace is the one light item to break up a dark look atop this Jil Sander top, and we love the unexpected choice of a super-glittery $35 clutch and sexy stilettos like these L.A.M.B. ones. Now, when can we RSVP?
