12 Festive Office Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

Creating a holiday party outfit for the office that's both work appropriate and festive — and that will take you from morning to night — is challenging without the right inspiration. Whether it's adding a few extra layers over a dress that you can shed after hours or swapping out your basic pumps for embellished heels, there are plenty of simple tricks to employ to achieve the right holiday party look.

From playing with the color palette to mixing certain prints and materials, the outfits ahead deliver the right amount of glamour and sophistication for your next festivity. Most of these ideas involve coordinating your ensemble around one key statement piece that's still understated, such as a pair of colored tights or statement boots. For each ensemble, there's a pièce de résistance that goes beyond a basic wardrobe essential and helps you stand out from the rest of the people in the conference room or at the bar.

If you're aiming to accent your favorite plaid pantsuit with feather-adorned stilettos, match your scarlet lip to a textured cranberry-red midi skirt, cinch the waist of a classic sweaterdress with a black belt to highlight your leather knee-high boots, or take your new rhinestone-finished denim for a whirl with a basic bodysuit, scroll through to discover the combination that best speaks to the partygoer in you this season. Then, scope out these top-notch holiday pieces from Old Navy if you find you're in need of a little closet refresh ahead of the party circuit.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Midi Skirt

There are easy ways to play up your textural midi skirt for a festive work party. Tuck a blouse with bell sleeves into the waistband, and employ a belt for extra polish. Balance your seasonal coat on your shoulders, and complete the look with a pair of heels.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Minidress

Wear tights with your long-sleeved minidress, both for warmth and a modest touch. Chandelier earrings instantly make your look work-party appropriate, especially if your dress is more everyday and less evening.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Suit

Own a pantsuit perfect for the foundation of a holiday party outfit? Finish the moment with platform boots or pumps to make a statement and complement the tones of your co-ord set with your bag.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Furry Coat

Even in all-black, a textured jacket is all you need to make your holiday party outfit stand out. Throw it over a black jumpsuit or dress, and finish the look with everyday jewelry and accessories.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work in a Plaid Print

Plaid is a classic fall- and winter-appropriate pattern that also works for the office. For a fancier soirée, finish your set with stiletto heels and statement earrings.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Tweed Jacket

Tweed is another cozy fall and winter material that brings in the compliments. Style your tweed set for a work party over a simple white shirt with sleek leather knee-high boots.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With Boots

Try wearing a ribbed sweater set in a bright or festive color styled with structured, leather knee-high boots and a classic purse for your holiday party at work.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Turtleneck

While you could just as easily wear the same turtleneck lounging at home in sweatpants, style it for a work party with a pleated skirt that hits at mid-shin, so you can still up the ante with a shoe moment.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With Jeans

If your office dress code is a bit more casual or your work party happens to be on a Friday, choose a pair of dark-wash high-waisted jeans and tuck in a cozy, oatmeal-colored knit. Add a touch of glam with a structural purse and jewelry.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With a Hat

Hats are a great closet staple to pull out for a work party outfit that's calling for a little something extra. While you might have worn your three-piece printed pantsuit to the office before, now you'll look even more accessorized and polished.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With Sparkly Pants

Don't hesitate to purchase a pair of festive pants for the holidays. Repurpose them for your work party with a crisp white fitted crewneck tee, hoop earrings, and a favorite pair of heels.


Holiday Party Outfits For Work With Colorful Tights

Sure, your holiday party outfit will stand out, but now is the time to test out the colored tights trend by playing with the colors in your wardrobe. Style your chosen colorway with satin mules in a jewel tone, and keep the rest of your look, dress included, monochrome.
