There are a lot of factors to consider when deciding on company Christmas party outfits. Not only do you want them to be festive, but they also need to be work appropriate and professional. However, you don’t have to sacrifice style just because it’s an office party (or company dinner). You can still look festive while also being appropriately dressed!
To help you select your office Christmas party attire, here are a few outfits you should consider. We have a few options for both the ladies and fellas, so you’re guaranteed to find something that works!
The Best Company Christmas Party Outfits (for Men and Women!)
1. Suit (with Christmas Socks)
If your office is throwing a formal holiday party, then you will likely need to wear a suit. But that doesn’t mean you can’t show any Christmas spirit! Why not wear a pair of Santa socks to brighten up the mood? You can also choose something a little more subtle, like these sweater-style socks instead. Think of them as a little Christmas surprise for all the party guests!
2. Sweater and Slacks
The classic sweater and slacks combination is a great option for your Christmas party. It’s casual but still professional at the same time. A solid-colored crew neck, like this merino wool one from Macy’s, comes in a variety of colors. But if you’re looking for something more playful, you can always choose a sweater with a Christmas-y design.
3. Christmas Sweater
Have a dog who’s an office hit? Make them the belle of the ball with these creative pet sweaters! Simply upload a photo of your pet on Uncommon Goods’s website, and they’ll send it to a team of artists who will create this sweater for you!
1. Cocktail Dress and Tights
As one of the most versatile party styles, a cocktail dress and tights is a winning combo for the office. There are so many types of fun cocktail dresses you can choose from. But for Christmas, we love this velvet mini from Free People. They look great with solid or patterned tights.
2. Turtleneck and Skirt
Cozy and sophisticated, a turtleneck with a mini skirt looks great for winter. For the top, we think a turtleneck goes with almost everything! If it’s cold outside, don’t forget the tights or leggings underneath the skirt to keep you warm.
3. Christmas Sweater and Slacks
If a dress or skirt isn’t for you, don’t worry! You can still rock a beautiful Christmas sweater and still look drop-dead gorgeous. Of course, there are so many fun, ugly Christmas sweaters out there, like this tinsel-embellished sequin number. Pair it with a simple pair of slacks for a timeless combination!
And if you are still struggling with your outfit, check out Stitch Fix! You’ll work with a personal stylist who will send you clothing each month in the mail. With them, you’re guaranteed to find some new favorite pieces – and not just for the Christmas party!
