Click through to see—and shop—five outfits that, with just a few small tweaks, can transition seamlessly from the office to a holiday party.
The sweater dress is an office classic. After hours, throw on a polished boyfriend blazer and you're ready to hit the eggnog. Play with texture further by slipping on some sheer black tights topped with buttery suede over-the-knee boots.
Everyone's got a go-to little black dress—and there's no better time to get lots of mileage out of yours than during the holiday season. Style it for work as you normally would, with classic pumps and a blazer—and then throw on a faux fur jacket and statement earrings for party time.
Not that into dresses? You can totally wear pants to a holiday party, too. Choose a festive, patterned pair and add a cashmere crewneck and flats for work; once 6 pm rolls around, trade those flats for a pair of pointy suede pumps and add a sparkling necklace.
Strapless dresses are a party no-brainer—but, of course, they're not exactly appropriate for an 8 am meeting. Remedy that by slipping a thin black or white turtleneck (one of fall/winter's most essential pieces—if you don't have one, buy one!) underneath the dress for daytime, then taking it off after work. A metallic moto jacket, a clear clutch and oxfords with some shine–yes, you can wear flats to a holiday party—add a festive touch.
Make your go-to workplace separates, like a pencil skirt and silk button-up, cocktail-ready by adding a pair of killer strappy stilettos and an eye-catching necklace. Add an additional layer of warmth with a snowy blazer—gotta love those winter whites!
