Party Time

OUTFIT TWO: Shirt: House of Fraser £56, Shorts: H&M £20, Shoes: Wild Pair £36 - Similar in Primark

So the festivities are in full swing, the trees up in the office, the christmas songs are on the radio and the christmas party is booked, but if your anything like me the minute an event is in my diary my mind immediately skips through my wardrobe and the panic sets in of what to wear.

So I thought I'd save you the panic and help you out with some suggestions for what to wear to each milestone event this festive period. So heres the first one "What to Wear to The Work Christmas party" the work xmas do is a mine field in itself, dodging advances from that weird guy in accounts, trying not to embarrass yourself in front of your boss - ok maybe I watch to many crappy american TV programmes but you get the idea so heres some inspiration on what to wear for the occasion on my pretty Polyvore board - how have I only just discovered Polyvore?! Love this sight!

Outfit 1:
Although I don't plan for you to run out and buy every item from the above collage its more to give you an idea of this you could wear and how you could style it. The playsuit is available in an array of colours, one for every hair colour but I went with festive red and accessoried it with mute gold accessories. - Also if you add my exclusive Motel Code found at the side of my blog you can get 20% off it!
You could dress this down with tights, a leather jacket and boots and equally dress it up with pointed courts, a statement belt and/or necklace. Its a versatile piece that you can wear right through the holiday season right into the new year!

Outfit 2:
This outfit is those of you who's xmas parties are little more formal or the dress haters out there, both items can be worn again and again and are wardrobe staples. Theres some amazing shirts and shorts on the high street at the moment which means you can play with colours, embellishments and fit. Killer heels and collar tips mean you can add your own stamp on this ensemble and can be added if you have little time between work and party.

Outfit 3:
This is the dressiest of the options, I am in LOVE with this dress and its only £18!! I think this is a cute combo party dress and blazer, again theres so many different styles and colour ways you can try with this and change accordingly to flatter your figure, plus the blazer will keep you warm on the way home!

What I plan to wear:
I'm stuck between the two dresses below from warehouse with a statement necklace, heels and a clutch.
























I hope you found this helpful, check back from more "What to Wear" scenarios and let me know if theres a particular occasion you are struggling with what to wear.

  1. I love the second dress with the lace that you have picked out.

    Got my office meal and drinks but all going straight from the office plus I am the only girl! So thinking of leather trousers, shirt & spike pumps :)

  4. Great outfit ideas! The colour of that playsuit is gorgeous! But I always find the leg portion is way to short and I've got a bit of cheeky bum popping out! Awkward! So they're a no no for me so far!
