Happy Holidays! You may be wondering what you should wear to the office holiday party coming up. This is one of the few times where you can really show up and show out with your attire. Instead of starting to brainstorm with your actual clothes, consider starting with your shoes!
Shoes can make or break an outfit, so it’s important to find the right footwear to match the vibe that you’re trying to go for. There are many types of dress shoes that work well for the workplace and afterhours, so we’ve created a lookbook guide to have heads turning at your office holiday party.
What to Wear with Pumps
Pumps are a great choice for a party because they’re easy to walk in, comfortable and they can be dressed up or down. Pair a classic black silk pump to your outfit for a modest, yet classy ensemble. You could even play around with ombre designs to level up your outfit. We’ve paired our Raven Pump with a black and gold ensemble with neutral features.
What to Wear with Slingbacks
Slingbacks are the go-to when you want to add some extra flare to your wardrobe. Pair your outfit with a chic slingback that not only offers ultimate comfort, but a colorblock combo that your outfit cannot resist. Let your slingbacks be the star of the show. We’ve paired our Renee Slingbacks with a gorgeous bronze ensemble.
What to Wear with Booties
Many underestimate the power of dressing up a bootie! Tight ankle boots are great for dresses and skirts. Plus, they can also be a compliment to jeans and legging since they offer proportion to your outfit. Ankle booties are chic, comfortable, and stylish with a perfect intention of dressing up or down. We’ve paired our Simone booties with a chic, neutral look.
What to Wear with Sandal Heels
For those who wear their sandal heels year-round (no shame), maxi dresses & skirts, and gown-like outfits are your best bet! Open-toed, strappy sandals have a very sophisticated look to them, making them ideal for holiday parties. Also if you’re on the shorter side, this is a great way to add some height to your outfit and keep your skirt from dragging. We’ve paired our Sasha Sandal heels with a gorgeous silver and red duo.
The holiday season is about the people you get to spend it with. Look around and be grateful for everyone you have in your life. Yes, even your colleagues at work. The whole year, you’ve been hustling and grinding with your coworkers alongside. But once a year, you get to slow things down and enjoy the wonderful professional connections you’ve managed to make. Because darling, your professional accomplishments and your sophisticated outfit are occasions worth celebrating.
