In between all the Holiday parties that you actually love to attend (X-mas Eve with the family! X-mas brunch with your besties! NYE with your man!) it's easy to forget the one that always seems like one too many: your annual Holiday office party. After you've pulled off the perfect looks for all those festivities, it seems virtually impossible to come up with yet another cool Holiday outfit. Actually, in general, dressing for an office party is downright tricky, because yes, you want to look party-proof, but also yes, you don't want to overdo it in front of people you have to have legit meetings with all year long (not to mention ask for a serious raise). But guess what? One of this season's biggest trends, the faux fur coat, has got you covered, because it strikes the perfect balance between casual & chic - just the way we like it. Here's how to make it the key piece of this year's Holiday office party look!
1 / MIX THOSE TEXTURES
It goes without saying that faux fur is a pretty rich fabric, so to make your favourite cosy coat (don't you love this fluffy number from Scapa?) a bit more party-proof, make sure to add lots of different textures: a denim shirt (casual), buttery leather shorts & hat (timeless), and patent leather boots (sexy). You'll be surprised with how well these blend together, because unlike colours, combining different fabrics is a lot easier, with the same uplifting effect.
2 / POP IT
A pop of colour is just quintessential for every party outfit. Since here, it has to work in an office context it's best to opt for a sophisticated colour palette: a pinky maroon bag and matching lips? That's literally all it takes!
3 / THINK F.U.N
You don't want your Holiday office party outfit to look too corporate, because, well, dull? So don't forget to finish your look with some super fun details: a little beret hat and taupe sunnies will add a bit of mystery while keeping things light at the same time. Easy does it!
