Go from work to festive in a snap.
Posted on November 17 2016
If you’re anything like us you’ve made your holiday outfit list and checked it twice, because as we ALL know, holiday parties call for memorable outfits. But for most of us, our sartorial needs don’t end there... Enter the office holiday bash. This event, unlike your social gatherings, requires a bit more strategic planning; it’s a fine line between festive and professional, girl! So without further ado, we present to you our guide to styling your Hipknoties from desk-to-party and day to night...
Don’t underestimate the power of sequins... or a black patent pump for that matter! Pack a holiday survival kit to keep with you including black patent heels and some ruby red lipstick and you’ll be ready to take the office partay by storm in a minutes notice!
Liven up the evening with mixed textures and high-impact accessories, but start out with a board room- friendly tailored blazer. For day, layer on a tailored contrast-lapel navy and black blazer. At night, throw it over your shoulders cape-style. Stash your essentials in a party-ready studded clutch to finish off the look.
While a leather skirt might not fly at every office, it is holiday party day, so break one out if your office tends to skew more fashion-forward. Stay on the conservative side with a below-the-knee pencil skirt and counterbalance any tough-girl edge with a colorfully patterned high-neck sweater.
