What to Wear to Your Office Holiday Party


Holiday office party outfits can be tough to style. You want to stand out, you want to look festive...but you also don't want to look like a Christmas tree. Or like you're headed to a club. Fine lines.

When I spotted this velvet 2-piece Calvin Klein outfit at Saks Off Fifth while in Phoenix, AZ, I totally fell in love. It took me all of 5 minutes to snatch it off the rack, scurry off to the change room, confirm its amazingness, and rush to the cash. I had been looking for something velvet to wear for the holidays (it's pretty much the #1 trending style this season), and I knew this would fit the bill. Even better? It wasn't the usual party dress. The matching pants to the velvet blazer have a stripe of velvet down the side, which I think make them look like fashionable tuxedo pants. How cool! Of course, it is the holidays, so I added some sparkly details in the form of these adorable gold Betsey Johnson heels and Kate Spade glitter purse.


If you're not in the mood for a party dress, or want to tame things down just a bit for your holiday office party, then a velvet blazer and pants are a chic alternative. If you want to amp up the drama just a bit, go sans-shirt and add a long, hanging necklace to match the plunging neckline.

I decided to wear this ensemble to an event last week at OMEGA's boutique at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. In Vancouver, it's always hard to tell if people are going to really dress up, or go casual, so I figured this velvet blazer and pants would be a good middle ground. I also knew that the incredible photographer Dennis Gocer of The Collective You would be there snapping portraits of guests, so I wanted to wear something relatively simple and chic, to match his black and white photography style. See the photos yourself below! Big thanks go out to OMEGA for the fabulous event, from the lovely portraits, to the gourmet handmade popsicles (pure genius, Chef Will Lee of Notch 8!), sparkling wine, and lots of sparkly accessories to try on!
