It’s the most wonderful time of the year for so many reasons, including the annual office party. We love the chance to celebrate with co-workers (plus free food + booze), but there’s plenty of room for error here — especially when it comes to fashion. We know it can be hard to strike a good balance between work-appropriate attire and fun party frocks, so we’re here to help. Because girl, you do not need the embarrassment of a wardrobe malfunction following you into the conference room next week. Check out our 20 office-appropriate (but still super dazzling) picks for keepin’ it classy at this year’s holiday party.
