How To Do “Holiday Business Casual” at Work Parties

Written by Anna Jones, Monday, December 12th, 2016 in Fashion, The Style Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – there’s a chill in the air, everything is flavored with pumpkin spice, and it’s holiday party season. Your bank account may be running low, what with buying your hosts and friends gifts all month, but that doesn’t mean your party wardrobe has to suffer for it.

We’ve compiled a list of holiday party outfits that you probably already have in your wardrobe, and if you don’t, they won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

A crisp, clean, new-looking white button-down shirt is perfect for holiday parties – it goes with every color and theme, and it’s a worthwhile investment. You can wear this baby to the office, on a date, or even going for a walk in the woods before building a bonfire and roasting marshmallows with your significant other. Wear your white button-down tucked into well-tailored pants for a modern day look. And before you throw it on for your holiday party, make sure it’s dry cleaned, if not brand-new – you’ll thank us later.

We love a good glasses look, especially for holiday parties. Think about all the male models you see in GAP and Nordstrom ads – there’s always some guy sporting a pair of eyeglasses and looking super hip. The hot nerd look is here to stay, especially when the specs you toss on are vintage – a 1960s style looks good on nearly every face shape. Try a website like Warby Parker, which offers a free home try-on before you buy a pair.

Top it all off with what you wear on bottom – cool brown Oxfords are definitely the way to go for Winter 2016 fashion, especially if you live in a slightly warmer climate – like the white button-down, they go with nearly every outfit. These ain’t your grandpa’s shoes, so don’t adhere to old rules, like brown shoes don’t work with blue pants or a black belt – it’s all about the hue of the black, blue, or brown. Pair pieces in similar tones, but also don’t be afraid to work a jewel-toned blue jacket with some brown Oxfords – you’re sure to impress your boss and co-workers with your fashion savvy.
