I’ve seen many posts about holiday party dresses (including some ideas of my own here), and I’m planning to share my office holiday party dress soon. But not all holiday parties are cocktail dress attire. You may have an office holiday luncheon or other daytime event. Dressing for such an occasion can be tricky. You want to get in the holiday spirit, but how do you toe the line between festive and over-the-top?
Today’s outfit is one I would wear to either a daytime work holiday function, or maybe an event immediately after work. The basic pieces are classics–a tailored skirt, crew neck cardigan, tall black boots, and a mess of pearls. The glittery thread of the cardigan and holiday color combo make it seasonally appropriate (although I would wear this other times of the year, too).
What do you think? How are you dressing for more casual holiday events this year?
