Coat- Target (old), Top- New York & Co (old), Trousers- H&M, Heels- Lulu'sA good rule of thumb for your holiday office party is to take your everyday work look up a notch. Separates instead of a dress keep things a little more casual. I chose one professional piece in a festive plaid and paired it with something with a bit of sparkle and shine. For my shoes, I wanted to wear something a little dressier than the average black pump, so I chose a metallic strappy sandal.
Necklace- Forever 21, Earrings- Forever 21, Belt- TargetHave some fun with your accessories, but don't go overboard. A statement necklace and stud earrings are just enough to elevate your everyday work apparel. Choose one metal finish to keep things streamlined, as I did with my silver jewelry and belt.
Clutch- Target, borrowedA clutch is perfect to carry for any party. In a metallic finish, this snakeskin print clutch is classy but still adds a fun edgy element to my look.
Revlon Eyeshadow Quad in Siren, Jordana Fabuliner, Benefit They're Real Mascara, NYX Angel Blush, Rimmel Nostalgia LipstickA classic hairstyle like voluminous waves is easy to create and a little more fancy then your everyday look. I curled my hair same as I always do (with a really old 1" Conair straightener) but then brushed out the curls to give them a little more bounce and a softer look. I finished off with hairspray.
Since an office party can still be quite professional, I wanted to my makeup to be toned down but still festive. I applied silver eyeshadow all over my lids. For a bit of drama, I created a subtle cat eye using my favorite liquid liner. When applying thicker eyeliner, I like to go for long, thick lashes with a volumizing mascara. On my cheeks, I applied a soft peachy-pink blush. Where I may normally have chosen a red lip for a holiday look, I went for a more wearable pink shade.
