In my opinion, putting the word “office” and “party” in the same sentence is an
oxymoron, especially when it comes to your outfit. It’s not the easiest thing to get
dolled up for a party while still remembering you’ll be sipping wine with coworkers.
It’s confusing. So how do you combine these two worlds? Simple. Go with something
festive yet classy. Choose festive materials, like lace or sequins, and combine this
with a classy shape, like a pencil skirt or sheath dress. Not sure whether to wear
a dress, skirt, or pants?

Here are three doable options below that are fun and festive, yet still classy enough to break it down on the dance floor with your coworkers.
