Oh Joy | What I'd Wear to a Company Holiday Party

With holiday soirees aplenty coming up, it often feels like you need so many different outfits for different kinds of parties with different groups of people and different levels of dressiness. Sometimes you have to attend your partner's more conservative holiday party; sometimes it's a more festive cocktail-style party you're headed to. So I like to wear accessories that can go with lots of things and simply change up the main component of the outfit depending on the occasion.

For a company holiday party (especially when it's a spouse's or partner's, I try and stay on the more conservative side (no cleavage and nothing too short!). Paired with some colorful heels and a fun clutch, in this look my personality still comes through with the bit of color and pattern.

Oh Joy | What I'd Wear to a White Elephant Party

For a more laid-back and festive party with friends (a White Elephant party, perhaps?), I'd wear a sparkly number like this striped sequined dress. Topped with a blazer (in case it gets chilly) and the same heels and clutch, I'm ready for a holiday celebration filled with present-swapping and my closest girlfriends.
