Finding the perfect holiday outfit can seem daunting, and when you add holiday office party into the mix? You can be left feeling overwhelmed. This post is not going to feature the typical holiday party dresses. My hope is that this will help career minded women transition from daytime working woman, to office party-ready with a few simple steps.
Of course, ideally, we would all love to go home, change, get a blowout, and then attend the office function, but when that's not an option, I hope that my tips still help you look put together.

- Lose the basic office blazer - instead, try a fun top in velvet - perfect for the holidays.
- Add an obi belt! This can add so much to an outfit, and makes the look more glamorous for evening. I like this one.
- Think of buying your pencil skirt in a unique fabric. Try something textured, brocaded (like this one, or this one), a satin finish or velvet. Even a pencil skirt with a little added flair, like this one, can help you stand out in a sea of holiday party dresses.
Tip 5: Nighttime Clutch Inside of your Work Tote: Our work carry-all's are usually roomy enough to fit lots of items, including a clutch that can double as a makeup bag or take you into evening. If you're pressed for time, switch out your makeup for the night time basics and use your clutch as your evening bag. I really like this festive, sparkly one.
