Whether you're stringing up tinsel or singing your heart out to a Christmas playlist, office party season is well and truly here. And while you may be tempted to hide under your desk, scoffing a plateful of mince pies, now is your time to shine.
Luckily we have enlisted the help of Micaela Erlanger (@micaela) to share her top styling tips, making planning your outfit a little easier.
Taking your outfit from presentation to party is easy by building on your daily look! Micaela suggests to keep it simple: add sparkly accessories and your favourite heels to bring it into the night.
Also, hair clips are everything. Part your hair down the middle and add 2 jewelled, pearled or metallic clips to your photo-ready side (you know the one). Add a red lip and you’re ready for the dancefloor (aka conference room?).
Your office has booked the holiday party at this year’s trendiest restaurant? “Dress to impress” is Micaela’s advice. Think sparkle and don’t hold back- from your skirt to your belt, earrings to your glitter mules. This is the occasion to go all out!
Just keep in mind Micaela’s golden rules: "nothing too short, nothing too daring and not too much skin (you have to see them on Monday after all)".
Flaunt your love of sequins and pull on your favourite festive knit (the bolder, the better). From classic geo patterns to fun slogans, Micaela suggests dressing it up with leather shorts or leggings, fun tights and a trendy pair of croco ankle boots.
Add a final festive touch by carrying your phone and keys in a sparkling clutch. This party-ready look is the best way to make an edgy yet effortless statement.
