HOLIDAY HEADER

Got a holiday party invite? If you’ve got a job, chances are you do. The Wall Street Journal reports that 9 out of 10 companies threw a holiday party in 2012. How do you put together a look that says festive without resorting to gimmicks like Christmas sweaters? Here are three looks that will have you rocking the house at this year’s office get together.

Tall-Dark-And-Handsome


Yes, we know, black has a formal, damn near funereal connotation. Still, with the extremely short days this time of year, a dark suit and shirt combo says after hours elegance without going all black tie. Bonus points: all black is flattering to almost every body type and skin tone, making this look a no-brainer. Don’t have a black suit? Don’t worry, this look works with your trusted navy blue and a navy shirt or a charcoal suit and gray shirt.

The-Bold-And-The-Beautiful


Maybe you want to bring a little color to the party. Juice up your usual suit and shirt combo with a punch of color. After a steady diet of heavy wintry suits all week, this charcoal blue suit brightens up a winter holiday celebration. Dress down this suit with an open collar and a shirt in any color but white and you’re sure to make an impression.

LOOK 2

Jacket-Required

If your office is not exactly a suit and tie kind of place, then perhaps a more laid back look is in order for the holiday party. This is the perfect time to bust out a sport jacket. It’s classy enough to show that you paid attention to your look but not as strong of a statement as a suit. With a micro-check shirt and khakis you’ll look put together without looking like you spent all day putting yourself together.
