What to Wear to the Office Christmas Party

🕤 5 min read

The office Christmas party is here! It is time to embarrass yourself in front of your colleagues and feel the wrath of too much merlot, but with Pure Luxuries London, at least you will look incredible while doing so.

Forget office casual, bring on show-stopping sequins, floaty satin skirts and luxurious velvet dresses. If you are wondering what to wear to the office Christmas party this year, then read on to find a little festive inspiration.

Sensibly Sparkly

While we don’t recommend gymnastics on the dancefloor, after a few tequilas, there is no stopping me from thinking I am Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman, and for moves like that, trousers are a must. Perhaps you just prefer trousers over dresses anyway… that is also a viable possibility.

Whatever your reason for choosing trousers, jazz them up with a sparkling sequin top and a cute clutch bag like our ‘Cherish’ clutch from the Conkca London Originals Collection. You loved this bag so much last season that we have sold out in the colour navy, but don’t worry, it will be back in stock soon and we still have Conker Brown and Dark Tan as lovely alternatives!

Ticking All the Boxes

This look ticks all of the trend boxes. Velvet: check, corset details: check, green: check, statement bag: check. You can’t go wrong with velvet for the festive season, whether you wear it as a dress, top or luxe statement trousers, velvet is a winner this winter.

For an outfit that is both Christmassy and sophisticated, opt for muted olive green like this dress or deep burgundy instead of red - equally as festive but a little less Buddy the Elf or Mrs Clause!

I teamed this olive velvet dress with pink sandals and the ‘Little Wonder’ crossbody clutch bag in Orchid and Blush from the Conkca London Originals Collection. Festive, feminine and perfect for any work Christmas do!

Cosy Glam

A satin midi skirt paired with a cosy jumper is one of my go-to party outfits for the colder months. Whether you will be eating your body weight in turkey at a Christmas meal or dancing on the tables at a festive party, this outfit will keep you comfortably glamorous all night long!

Dress up any chunky knit with a flowing midi-skirt and stilettos (extra points if you include on-trend cerulean). Pair with a sleek and sophisticated clutch like the ‘Arlesey' Cashmere Blue leather clutch from the Pure Luxuries London Couture Collection.

Tinsel and Tassels

Be the belle of the bauble (sorry) with tassels! Fringed designs are back and I couldn’t be happier, especially if it means I get to wear dresses like this, reminiscent of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novella!

I have let the dress do the talking by keeping the accessories chic and simple with black heels and our multi-tasking ‘Ermes’ cross body clutch bag from the Pure Luxuries Gold Collection. This bag will take you from desk duty to disco diva by simply removing the strap, if only all fashion was this simple.

For the Magpies

Last but certainly not least, turn the sparkles up to eleven with a sequin dress for head-to-toe glam! If there is one time of the year that you can get away with being a human disco ball, it is Christmas and I say let’s blind people with our beauty this year!

Since the sparkles do most of the talking in this outfit, I have paired this dress with understated heels and the stunning ‘Lytham’ cross body clutch bag in Blush Pink from the Pure Luxuries London Couture Collection.

So, long as your Christmas party outfit allows you to drink copious amounts of wine, eat as much festive food as possible and dance like nobody is watching (when really, the whole office is), then you are doing it right!

Whatever you choose to wear, we hope you have the best office Christmas party! Show us your outfits over on Instagram using #mypureluxuries and give us a follow on Pinterest for the latest fashion and lifestyle inspiration!
