Sure, Diddy's White Party has earned quite the reputation. But, we assure you, his gathering's got nothin' on the one you'll be attending — or, this amazing outfit. Here, jumpsuits are your friend. Accent a winter white with metallics, like silver heels and a gold blazer. And, if you can sneak in a touch of color — might we suggest some icicle-style earrings? — even better. This combo allows you to adhere to the party's theme without opting for an all-white-everything look.
Like it or not, some holiday parties don't come with a theme. These more traditional gatherings make it easier to go from work to play. In this instance, you're probably looking for a way to spruce up one of your go-to work outfits. This wool-dress-and-boots outfit is perfect for a winter wardrobe but incorporates a touch of color to get you feeling more festive. Plus, the sleeveless feature makes you well-equipped, should any dance battles erupt. Finish off with a touch of bling to tie it all together, and you're ready for some (spiked) eggnog.
Ironic Christmas Sweater Party
Ah, yes. We all have at least one of these on our December calendars. You're expected to show up in what's called your "best worst." The idea here is to engage in the nostalgia of horrible holiday sweaters while still managing to look cool. And, if you think your boss wouldn't be too impressed with your (amazing) cat-and-jingle-bells sweater, you'd be 100% right. Go for a top that's lighter on the pattern, but still passes for something you plucked from your grandmother's closet, per your party's theme. The metallic skirt brightens everything up, but doesn't scream "club wear." See? It's all in how you frame it.
