7 On-Trend Outfits to Rule Your Office Holiday Party (and Beyond)
And how to style them the next day
The Ruffled Shirt
Super-feminine but also a little wild, the new ruffled tops and pussy-bow blouses are all the rage. And they’re endlessly versatile. Wear yours with a flirty skirt to a holiday party and then with jeans after your fancy event.
Maybe it’s a matching top and trousers. Maybe it’s two clashing patterns worn together, such as a vest over a shirt. But now plaid is decidedly breaking out of its staid rep and having a party. Join in the fun.
A blazer or long skirt in bright red or another jewel tone is a happy holiday classic that’s been updated for 2016 in softer fabrics with a bit of drape. The new way to wear velvet is with a T-shirt and denim skirt to look like you remembered to dress for the party but didn’t overthink.
The heels you wear to accessorize this outfit will take you from bedtime to out-for-the-night goddess. Be sure to point this out to your father when he remarks that you forgot to change out of your pj’s.
Maybe they have lots of colors. Maybe an interesting plastic heel. Whatever their quirk, the latest styles have walkable (i.e., chunky) heels and the power to refresh your go-to LBD. Plus, they’re something you can talk about with Marge from accounting.
The only thing hotter than your caramel brûlée latte is sequined leggings or wide-legged trousers. Wear them now with an oversize sweater and heels, and later with a beat-up jean jacket and sneakers.
