Dress up games as young girls have proven to provide us with numerous ideas on trending fashion and style sense with a unique blend of personality to it. What no one typically teaches (except mommy) is what to avoid wearing at different occasions; life teaches some the hard way while others are simply better observers. And now that you’re a grown up if the next moment from ‘lavenders blue’ is right in your closet mirror chanting ‘dress me up’ you need to take back a moment and reflect. Ponder on what you’re not supposed to wear at the much-awaited office Christmas party.
Yes it was made/gifted with tons of affection and many sentiments is weaved in it; nevertheless, it shall be kept aside for the informal ugly Christmas sweater parties with your bosom friends, only. Your office party, even if not very formal, is definitely not an event to show up with this kind of attire. Only if one wants to be a laughing stock should they dare to do so?
Yes, it is holiday season; but aren’t the Christmas trees enough to be dressed the way they should? It doesn’t have to be you too. Bright colors are in fashion in the season but make sure you don’t become a walking talking Christmas ball or wreath yourself. Not at your office Christmas party at the least. After all, you wouldn’t fancy buntings and lights wrapped around you being stagnant in the lounge.
SKY ISN’T THE LIMIT, SO LIMIT YOUR HEELS
You aren’t aiming to the tallest person in fancy dress show; it’s your corporate Christmas party, and committing such a faux pas here doesn’t make you look good at all. You wouldn’t want to be made fun of after you return to the desk post-holidays.
Sweatshirt and shorts? Next, you all must be planning to go out for a picnic. Overly casual is a clear no-no for an office Christmas party. Such attire gives off the message that you didn’t make an effort to dress up accordingly, and you wouldn’t want to give that impression to your bosses. The party isn’t the workplace, but it is still an office party.
TOO TIGHT, TOO OBNOXIOUS
Wearing your dress too tight or showing off too much would only result in the impression you don’t want to give to any of your colleagues. There isn’t a strict dress code for corporate Christmas parties, but that doesn’t mean one can chuck all attire rules into the bin. A nice moderate hemline works well when it comes to your corporate parties. Get ready to flaunt your sophistication in style.
JINGLY BLESS, ON YOU
You don’t want to be labeled the Santa or reindeer of the party; it’s not a costume party you’re going to (unless it is!). Bright Christmas socks, headbands and other accessories all come in the same category where you put up all the Christmas stuff and props in closet saved for a whole year.
