Everyone looks forward to the Christmas office party, but many are stumped when it comes time to dress appropriately. We’ll suggest some wardrobe staples to help you navigate the dress code for the holiday party.

The Perfect Look for the Office Christmas Party

To start out our makeup tricks for this holiday season, we offer some advice on what not to do this year for your Christmas office party makeup. Everything in moderation is sometimes forgotten over the festive season, but your hair and makeup is one area where you must abide by these rules. Wearing full makeup and looking like you are ready for a night at the club is not acceptable during daytime office hours, so it shouldn’t be worn to the office party in the evening either.

Just stick to your normal beauty tips, like wearing a neutral base, adding some sparkly metallic eye makeup, and a statement lip to take you from day to night. Another Christmas party makeup idea is to try a subtle bronze look by skipping the metallic shadow, brushing a taupe eye shadow across the lid feathering up to the brow, and sweeping a bronzing powder across the cheeks.

The same rule applies for Christmas party hairstyles. Don’t go overboard on the hairspray and have the biggest hair in the room. Opt for a chic look with a sophisticated bun, or pulled back into a sleek pony tail. If you want a sexier look, try some slight waves for those with longer hair worn down past the shoulders.

The only question left is: what will you wear? You will need to walk the fine line between festive and professional, which requires a bit of strategic planning. A black blazer offers many different looks, and when worn over a sparkly festive top, makes it office party appropriate. A nice pencil skirt and blouse can also take you from day to night when paired with a sparkly camisole placed under the blouse, which will peek out when the top button is undone for the party. The best way to not look overdone is to dress in monochromatic colors and just accessorize with some sparkly statement jewelry. You could also turn up the sparkle factor with a metallic clutch bag or sparkly shoes.

We hope these style and beauty tips will inspire you and get you through your office Christmas party. Whether you go for a more festive sparkly look, or sophisticated flawless look, you will be sure to capture the attention of all your co-workers!
