The Christmas season is here! This means buying gifts for all your loved ones and friends, preparing all your New Year's celebrations, and most importantly getting ready for your annual office Christmas party. The work Christmas party is the main celebration in any workplace. It involves good food, good drinks, great company and an overall joyous celebration for all.
However, the Christmas season is filled with a ton of celebrations and events to go to, so finding an outfit for the office Christmas party is low on the priority list. Plus after all the gifts being bought and other events to attend in December you are probably not in the mood to put together a complex look that requires even more financial expenses.
This is where we come in! We have come up with 5 simple and low-cost outfits for you to copy, just in time for your office Christmas party!
5 Office Christmas Party Looks
Casual yet Sophisticated Office Christmas Party Look
If your office Christmas party is more informal and low key this year, a casual outfit is best. But we don't want to look too casual and informal, so adding a touch of sophistication is key to making it into a look that is subtle and fits the informal vibe, but also stands out enough to have your coworkers envious of your style secrets.
The best way to look casual yet classy is by choosing warm colors like beige, cream, and white because of these colors all pair together beautifully, and they are subtle. You can even opt for a total beige outfit because this is one of the hottest trends of the season and it looks very lush.
Find a pair of neutral-colored palazzos trousers and style them with a classy pair of black heels. As for a top, we suggest styling a neutral-colored bodysuit and blazer together. All these items together are the ideal combination of classy, while still sticking to the informal party attire.
Festive Casual Office Christmas Party Look
Dressing festive and in the Christmas spirit is a great way to show up to a work Christmas party. We don't want to be too over the top, but some subtle Christmas details and additions to a look are super cute and perfect for the season. The best festive clothing item is a red plaid skirt. This item just screams Christmas and is the best subtle way to embrace the Christmas spirit.
High Fashion and Glamorous Office Christmas Party Look
If you work in a very formal environment (or you just want to be super glamorous for the Christmas party) then you have to dress the part. You can either go wear a classic dress or a pair of trousers and a blazer combination. Both of these options are classy and perfect for a sophisticated office party dress code.
It doesn't matter if you choose to wear a dress or a pantsuit, you should try to stick with luxurious materials such as silk and velvet to give off high-end vibes.

Office Party / Christmas Dinner Combined
Some offices have their Christmas party combined with dinner, and this means the outfit you wear maybe a little bit different. In this case, a skirt and a nice top is suggested. With this, there are so many outfit possibilities! Pair a black pencil skirt with a fun and classy top! This way when you are sitting for dinner people are able to see and admire your top, which will be the focus of your look.
Cosy Office Christmas Party Look
There are some work offices that only have a small number of employees and enjoy a more intimate and "family-like" Christmas party. In this case, the office Christmas party is more like a hangout with close friends and family, because with a small group of co-workers you do start to become like family!
At this type of party dressing comfortable and cozy is a must, while still remaining fashion-forward. The best way to do this is with an oversized jumper or a thick turtleneck, a pair of your favorite jeans, and black heeled boots.
Now that you have some office Christmas party outfit inspiration, it is time to get excited! The office Christmas party is a great opportunity to spend quality time with your coworkers, whom you spend most of your days with anyways!
I hope this has helped you with one of your holiday celebrations coming up and made planning and preparing a little bit easier.
