What to wear to an office party

It’s one of the trickiest of all festive get-togethers conundrums: how to dress with sartorial superiority without flirting with the ‘inappropriate’, and ideally without needing to execute a full outfit change in the packed-out staff bathroom? We’ve got the memo…

THE STATEMENT SUIT

If you’re at your most comfortable in tailoring, then a glittery or crystal-embellished suit will up your game for the annual office drinks. Add brightly colored sandals on your way to the party and a sequined bag that will shimmy and shine on the dance floor.

THE PRINTED MIDI DRESS

The best thing about a great midi dress is that it works in basically every situation. Wear it with a pair of elegant pumps through the day – you can always wear a blazer if you need to give it a corporate edge – and when you’re ready to let your hair down, just add metallic accessories.

THE SHIRT DRESS

Party dressing doesn’t have to involve sequins. Take a throwback approach by pairing a wear-forever shirt dress with a ladylike, logo-heavy bag and some sculptural gold jewelry. Finish with Gianvito Rossi’s plexi heels – they have the requisite retro-modern feel and make enough of a statement to lift your look after dark.

EVENING MINIMALISM

Elevate your favorite white shirt with a black midi skirt in a suitably luxe fabric – satin, velvet or brocade will all do the trick. A sleek leather clutch is low-key enough to see you through a day at the office but also sophisticated enough to pass muster after dark – just slip on the party shoes under your desk and add a pair of hoop earrings for a touch of OOO sparkle.

THE HOLIDAY SWEATER

If you prefer to nod to the festive party vibe rather than dive right in, then look to Bella Freud and her irresistibly sophisticated take on the holiday sweater. Keep yours pared back with a pencil skirt and classic boots; some subtly high-shine hair accessories make for an understated finishing touch.
