Yes, it’s that time of year again, it’s time to start thinking about the office Christmas do! But let’s not forget although this is a time to have fun and socialise with your colleagues.
But it is also worth thinking about how you dress, oh yeah and of course being on your best behaviour is kinda important on this one!!
The Do’s and Don’ts of the office Christmas Party
1/ Have fun – enjoy spending time with your colleagues outside of a working environment.
2/ Think about your outfit in advance – making an effort is important.
3/ Take a light cover-up with you – just in case the venue is a bit nippy or in the worse case scenario, to avoid feeling under dressed.
4/ Do dress to impress – this is the time to add a little sparkle or some strappy heels, embrace the fact you can wear what you wouldn’t usually wear to work.
5/ Do mingle – make an effort to chat to everyone and not leave anyone out, after all it’s Christmas.
6/ Do put away your phone – be polite and turn your phone on silent, checking it only in private and NOT cruising on social media.
7/ Do look like yourself – but switch it up a notch!!
1/ Don’t get too drunk (like poor Bridget did in the image above!)- over indulging in alcohol is not a good idea. It’s just not.
2/ Don’t wear something too itsy-bitsy or too revealing – this is not the time to be sexy.
3/ Don’t Wear too high-heels – you don’t want to feel uncomfortable or fall over…
4/ Don’t trap people in long conversations – keep the conversation light, this is not the time to get political.
5/ Don’t gossip or make nasty comments!! – no one likes a meany!
6/ Don’t wear too flashy colours (a classic LBD is always a winner) and certainly don’t go for over-the-top sequins! – dress a little more conservative than a party outside of work. But if you do like a bit of gold or silver (after all it is Christmas) then that’s ok too.
Stay tuned to find out how to dress for the office Christmas Party! But remember to follow the office Christmas party commandments to avoid awkward situations and tears.
