When it comes to how to look your best for yuletide celebrations, there are plenty of party-appropriate womenswear options to choose from. If you've got time to spare, having two separate outfit choices (one for office events and one for social gatherings) is a savvy plan.
However, if you're planning on attending multiple dos in a single day, you can transition your outfit from day to night with a few simple style hacks.
Low cut necklines, bare legs and short skirts tend to be more acceptable outside of the office than in. But that doesn’t mean you need to change your look entirely for work. Simply add hosiery to a short dress or skirt, and pair with an elegant knee length coat. As for necklines, a strategically draped scarf or wrap will provide that extra bit of coverage.
To toss in your handbag: a lightweight shawl or scarf, and tights or stockings. When the time comes to move to your after-hours destination, both items are easily removed and light enough to be stored away for the rest of the evening.
