Dressing For Your Holiday Party!

Dressing For Your Holiday Party!

Dressing for you Holiday parties can a challenge and a pleasure. Here are a few tips to help you shine this Holiday Season.

The office Christmas Party is one of those rare occasions in the year when you can impress your co-workers with a little bit of fashion flair.  We sat down with our friends at CTV Ottawa Morning Live to offer a little bit of advice on how to make the most of this opportunity.

Various types of parties require different levels of dress.  Just remember; you can never be overdressed but you’ll stand out like a sore thumb if you’re under-dressed.

Feel free to take some risks and have some fun.  A bow tie, a great velour sport jacket or a colourful shirt can make a fun statement and help you stand out in a crowd.

You’ll want to ensure you have enough time to get your clothes properly tailored, nothing ruins a great outfit faster than a poor fit.  Spend a few extra dollars to make sure the fit is just right.

On the trend side, we are seeing a lot of great textures this year, velour, wool and knits are making a strong statement.  Popular colours include burgundy, blue and grey and remember that layering will always help make an outfit look just a little more formal and finished.

You will also want to make sure your shoes are clean and in good shape.  A pair of fun socks can also add a little fun and flair to your outfit.

Two final tips:

  1. Keep your wallet and your keys out of your pant pockets.  Hide them in your suit or sport jacket or give them to a lady friend who can keep them in her purse.
  2. Don’t clip anything to your belt – ever!
