Wearing an “inappropriate” outfit to the holiday party can be a career limiting move. Suddenly, you’ve gone from capable and talented to…ahem…capable and talented. Before you venture out to toast your colleagues with HR-friendly nog, here’s a quick guide to what’s naughty and nice attire for the company-sponsored fête.



Don’t show too much skin! Thigh-high minis and cleavage-baring dresses are not office-appropriate, which means they’re not office-party-appropriate either. This satiny dress with it’s surprising v-back ($150) is suggestive without being too revealing and it comes in a festive red, too. Or opt for this elegant bow back dress from A.B.S. ($189). Both display class, not body parts.

You shouldn't outshine the holiday decorations. Beading, metallics, and glitter are all fine for holiday outfits, but don’t go overboard. Make sure the shimmer accents are subtle and enhance your look, like on a fun clutch ($215) or  a bold embellished cardigan ($229, was $382).
