Christmas parties can be intimidating. Especially if it’s a work do, because it’s going to be one of the few opportunities for you to show off your sweet, silky, off-the-clock style.
Of course, not everyone has sweet silky style. But that’s what we’re here for.
Follow our advice on what to wear to a work Christmas party, and you really can’t go wrong.
If you’re opting for a Christmas meal
If you’re attending a festive themed meal with a bunch of folks from the office, you’re probably best to opt for a Christmas jumper. The challenge is to wear the most whimsical one you can possibly get your mitts on.
Show your sense of humour while staying comfy enough to drink and eat pretty much everything you want.
For The Gents
This outfit is definitely one where you want the jumper to do the talking. Try and find a better jumper than this Drake ‘Hotline Bling’ version, we dare you. Being one of the most talked about videos ever and an inspiration for hilarious GIFs, we decided to pick this one for the gents. Show up in this meme-tastic jumper and you’ll instantly be the funniest dude in the room.
For The Ladies
We love this off-the-shoulder jumper because it shows a little bit of skin and you won’t be boiling in it, either. How could you resist this excellent Home alone 2 themed Christmas jumper. We all remember that brilliant scene, right?
Pairing this with some classic grey high waisted Joni Jeans will mean you can eat all the food you want. They’ll look stylish and will still hide that enormous food baby the best of us get after a generous helping of mince pies. To finish off the look, we thought some sturdy high heeled boots will make you look glam without you hobbling around all night.
The trick is to miss out stilettos and opt for a thicker platform so you can miss out the slip and slide adventures when you get out of the taxi.
What about the Christmas night out?
If you’re going to be partying as well as gobbling on some delicious food, you’ll have to step it up a notch with your outfit. Get the right outfit sorted and everyone will want you under the mistletoe.
For The Gents
For a night out, you want to keep it as simple as you can. Building an outfit around a fitted tweed jacket might seem like a good idea, but you’ll regret it when you’re boiling in a packed bar.
Instead, go for a smart casual shirt in a deeper colour to add warmth to the look. We think an oxblood colour coupled with mid wash slim jeans and brogues is something you can wear for any occasion, but you’ll also fit in with the other fashionable folk.
For The Ladies
With this dress, you’ll be more stylish than any fashion blogger out there. This green lace ties in with the traditional Christmas colours, yet we’ve kept it partnered up with black to keep it cool and classic.
A statement necklace brings extra oomph to a dress and lace up heels have been a huge trend, so you know you’ll wear these again throughout 2016. We also thought this simple black clutch is stylish yet big enough to fit in your phone for your endless selfies with the group.
Now that you’ve found what to wear to a work Christmas party, it’s time to decide where you should actually host it. We’re not trying to toot our own horn here but you can fill your boots at Revolution with our delicious food and moreish cocktails. Grab your comfiest Christmas jumper and come enjoy the best night of the festive period amongst friends or colleagues. With jumpers sorted, why not book your work Christmas party?
