Today’s post is dedicated to all my corporate ladies with a strict business dress code at the office. Now, I will admit that I do not, nor have I ever worked in an environment with a business dress code. In fact, all of my jobs have had casual dress codes…not business casual…but casual. Like, I can wear shorts and flip flops to work, and nobody would look twice. And, now I work from home, and I’m currently wearing a cozy fleece robe. (Don’t judge!) But, my mom worked in consulting and finance forever, so I do know a bit about corporate dressing (while still maintaining your personal style!). The office holiday party may give you an excuse to get a little fun and festive, but you still can’t go too far outside the realm of business attire. So, I’m hoping this look will give you corporate ladies an idea for a sophisticated holiday look that is still office friendly. The color of the dress and the lace overlay paired with a statement necklace that you probably wouldn’t normally wear to the office are saying “I’m in the holiday spirit,” but the short sleeved sheath silhouette, dark tailored jacket, sheer pantyhose, and closed toe shoes are saying “I know I’m still at work. ” Lol! It’s a look that’s perfect for the company holiday luncheon or a holiday cocktail hour with your colleagues.
Scarlett Lace Dress c/o Ivy & Blu | Kasper Blazer (thrifted, similar) | ShoeDazzle Pumps (old, similar) | Hanes Pantyhose | Impluse Clutch c/o JustFab (it converts to a crossbody bag!) | Wrist Soiree “Estelle” Necklace (sold out, but check out her other selections) | Lips: YSL Glossy Stain in Rouge Philtre
I hope I made my corporate ladies proud with this one. I like to think that if I worked in an environment that required business attire, I’d know what to wear. Lol! If you work in an office with a business dress code, feel free to leave your tips for holiday dressing in the comments. “What to wear to an office holiday party” is a question I think a lot of women have…especially those women who work in offices with strict dress codes!
p.s. I’ve mentioned a giveaway a couple times…I guess I’ll let the cat out of the bag already. I’m partnering with Ivy & Blu to give one lucky reader the holiday party dress of her choice! Eeek! Working on the giveaway post now, so come back later today for details on how to enter!
Thanks for stopping by, and come back tomorrow for Day 7!
