The holidays are a time to celebrate with friends, family, and even coworkers. With party invitations aplenty, navigating your closet for something to wear can present a bit of a challenge, especially for that office holiday party. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind while searching for that perfect office-party outfit.

Sparkles rule during the holiday season. Opt for sequin accents, to ensure that your outfit shines as much as you do. The more sequins, the louder the outfit, so be sure to keep the office dress code in mind when determining the right amount of sparkle.

Get out of the shadows; opt for outfits and accent pieces in jewel tones that shimmer. Ruby red, emerald green, rich amethyst and gold are all beautiful color palette options for a classic holiday party wardrobe.

Any occasion that calls for dressing up also calls for some great accessories. Festive baubles, from earrings to bracelets, can make a statement, without compromising the integrity of your outfit. Just be sure not to go too large, as an overwhelming accessory can prove to be a major distraction.

As with any work-related event, be sure to keep your office’s dress code in mind. If your day-to-day wardrobe is business attire, opt for a black dress in a fairly conservative style. Jazz the look up with accessories to give the outfit some flair. Conversely, if your office tends to border more on the business casual or casual end of the spectrum, something fun and sparkling could very easily be the choice to beat.

No matter what the office dress code says, it is important to maintain a certain level of modesty in your choices. That means no miniskirts or plunging necklines. If your outfit could possibly change a coworker’s opinion of you, think twice before wearing it in a business environment. The office party is not a club scene, no matter where it takes place. Choose your sparkle wisely, folks.

Use these tips to have a smart and stylish holiday celebration with coworkers.
