Oh, it’s officially that festive time of year again! The date has been set, the venue has been confirmed… now all you have to do is pull an outfit together for your work’s Christmas party. Now, we all know the feeling of frustratingly digging out your entire wardrobe just to find that one show-stopper look. I mean, who doesn’t relate to that scene from The Grinch where the furry creature struggles to decide what to wear for the Whoville Christmas festivities? This is why we at Arlo Wolf have compiled an exclusive guide dedicated to ideas for Christmas party attire. Continue reading for some seasonal inspiration!
Glitter it up
T’is the season to glitter and sparkle. A glittery outfit or shimmery dress would certainly be fitting for any Christmas party style – whether it be an office party or family celebration. On this note, why not go for the classic sequined blazer and complement the look with matching sequined trousers? When it comes to choosing the accessories to go with the outfit, we recommend going for a black clutch, as well as sporting standout shiny earnings. Oh, and speaking of our own glasses, why not complete this iconic look with a pair of our Apollo Carbon glasses in grey?
The colours of Christmas
It is important to feel like you are dressed for the right occasion, so wearing the colours of Christmas to your work’s Christmas party is certainly a good idea. You can’t go wrong with a simple yet standout jumpsuit, so why not show up to the occasion wearing a red or white one? Also, have you got some matching red or white earrings? If yes, you’d be silly not to wear these to show off your look further. For guys, choosing to wear a classic red or white shirt with some black trousers is a wise choice for any Christmas party style. Whatever colour that you decide to go for, or if you simply opt to mix and match, complete this colourful Christmas look with a pair of our unisex Brook glasses in Clear Crystal.
Jazz things up with a hipster look
Stand out at the office party by sporting a classic hipster Christmas look. Think jazzy festive flares, fluffy oversized jumpers, and (of course) the signature Doc Martens. There is nothing like an outfit that conveys a bit of personality – so be you and go for it! When it comes to male hipster Christmas party looks, there are also many options to choose from. From Christmassy flannel shirts, corduroy trousers to denim jackets, be wild and experiment with what works. And, to finish off that iconic hipster look, sporting a pair of our Harrison glasses in Gold would be a fantastic choice.
Formal and sophisticated
A little bit of dressing up didn’t hurt anybody, so why not go all the way for your work’s Christmas party? Don’t hesitate, get out that beautiful below the knee black dress that’s been waiting to be on you all year. As we mentioned, you can’t go wrong with a good blazer, and such an item of clothing would complement your chic sophisticated dress extremely well. Speaking of chic and sophisticated, why not arrive at the Christmas party in a three-piece suit if you’re a male? Finish off this glamorous look with a pair of shiny cufflinks. If your work’s do is at a fancy event function, an outfit like this would be ideal. Our Lincoln glasses in Black, available for both men and women, would be the perfect addition to this extravagant look.
Cosy and casual
If your work Christmas party is going to be in the comfort of your own office, then you may just want to go for a casual vibe. One thing comes to mind here – cosy jumpers! Whether it’s a bright coloured Christmas sweater or a chunky piece of knitwear – you can be assured that the look you want to go for is going to be easy to pull off. When it comes to accessories, why not finish off your outfit with a nice watch or a pair of our Miller glasses in black?
