Maybe partying with your coworkers isn't at the top of your to-do list this December. No matter, because there's really no graceful way to decline the calendar invite to the office bash — sent by your boss. Who knows, you might even enjoy drinking with your cube mates. Of course, HR's invited, too, which means some attention should be paid to the dress code.
There's no one-look-fits-all approach to these types of get-togethers, so we styled outfits perfect for intimate team dinners, cocktail hours, ugly sweater parties, and more. This way, you can choose what's right for your specific RSVP and plan in advance — or risk being the topic of water-cooler gossip the next day.
