What to Wear to the Holiday Office Party

The time has come for holiday party after holiday party. And with a look that must be equal parts polished and festively fun, the office fete is the trickiest of them all.

Thankfully, Rue Assistant Stylist Lindsay T. is taking the guesswork out of dressing. Impressing the boss? Piece of cake.

What to Wear to the Office Holiday Party

Men
It’s a party, but that doesn’t mean it’s a style free-for-all (no sneaks allowed). Dress the same way you would for work in the morning, just a touch more fun. Corduroys and plaid lend a cozy, merrymaking vibe to your typical workweek getup.

Women
Go for classic layers, like a button-front under a sweater and a flouncy skater skirt. Add some festive flair with a touch of holiday plaid, red suede pumps, and (of course) a sparkly statement necklace. You’ll be covered up enough on top that wearing tights is totally optional.
