It's that time of year, good cheer, time with your loved ones and holiday parties. Here are some tips on how to look professionally glam at the office holiday party. 1. Do Dress Up How many times do you get to dress up for work? I mean really dress up? Here's your time to shine! Go for a beautiful and elegant dress or dress pants (brocade pants are hot this season) with a silk top. Make sure to keep your look tasteful and professional; though it's a party, it's still a business event.
2. Do wear red lipstick Red lips may not be appropriate for the office during your work day, but it's a great way to glam up your holiday party look or add a pop of color to your makeup. I personally love and highly recommend Mac's Ruby Woo. As a tip, if you do choose to go with a bold red lip keep the rest of your makeup soft and natural.
3. Do spice up your look with tights Tights are my favorite Fall/Winter accessory. They're such a great way to have fun with your outfits by playing with texture and color, plus they're always fashionable.
4. Do Add Sparkle Tastefully celebrate the season's festivities with your look by adding a dash of sparkle with accessories.
5. Do make a Statement with your Shoes This is the perfect opportunity to pull out those statement-making shoes that are inappropriate for everyday office wear. Make a fashion statement with your shoes. One caveat: do wear shoes that are a comfortable height for you. Stumbling around in uncomfortable shoes you can hardly walk in is not exactly the way to make an impression at any party.
