Manic Monday: Daytime Office Holiday Party

The holidays bring on many occasions to dress up, and some of these events can be challenging.  It can be difficult to decide what to wear to an office holiday party, for example.
Blouse:  Eloquii (Sold out on-line; join the waitlist here)

The culture of your workplace, including typical dress code, and whether the party is during work hours or in the evening or on a weekend can help give you clues as to what’s appropriate.

Cape:  Eloquii (Available in garnet here)
Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)

My workplace is typically business casual, and our office holiday party starts essentially at lunchtime and ends at the end of the normal work day.  Today’s post is for those of you in a similar situation.  Since you must work before the party, what you wear should be office appropriate.  It should not be too loud and flashy and should be no more revealing than what you would normally wear for work.

Shoes:  (Available at Kohl’s here)
Clutch:  Jason Wu for Target (old)
Furry Key Chain:  Torrid (Available in pink here)

To make your look more festive, you could add in reds and greens, subtle sequins, and more blingy accessories.

Blouse:  Eloquii (Available here)
Necklace and Earrings:  The Limited (old)

Today’s looks are both outfits that I would normally wear to work, but I added a little more and/or more shiny jewelry than normal, and I went with clutches with evening details like lace and metallic.

Rings:  Vintage and LOFT (old)
Pants:  The Limited (Available here)
Shoes:  New Look (Available at ASOS here)

I was considering the cape look for my office party this year, but a black and white dress code was requested.  Instead, I’m likely going to wear the cape blazer with a black top and add in some extra sparkle.

Do you have an office holiday party to attend?  Is it a day or evening function?
