We’re hardly into November and already here at Panache HQ we’re starting to think about Christmas. After all, it’s the party season of the year, and work parties are one of the most high-pressured fashion situations to be in. Do you go for sexy and a bit over-the-top, or dress down and avoid the drunken accounts guys round the mistletoe? Plus, if you’ve got more than one work party to go to, what do you wear for each one?
Luckily for you, we’ve got a couple of tried-and-tested formulas that will ensure you’re comfortable, classy and totally gorgeous at your work Christmas party.
High heels + jeans + flattering blouse
It’s a simple, workable formula that can be updated to fit in with this season’s trends, plus it’s winter-proof – no cold breezes with jeans! For women with larger busts, it also means the option to wear a supportive bra without worrying over straps peeking through. Feeling sexy as well as supported is a big win and with a bouse you can choose a patterned bra like the Fern Balconette Bra without it being seen. Choose a dark, slim-leg jean for a flattering evening look, pair with big statement heels (python-print is very on trend) and a top that draws attention to your fabulous curves – try embellished, beaded and sequinned blouses for a glamorous look, or menswear-inspired details for a more tailored look.
Fitted dress + oversized jewellery
A fitted dress is an essential component of any curvy girls wardrobe, and can easily be revamped for a work Christmas party. However, avoid anything too ‘work-related’ by choosing a print or bright colour with the same, seductive fitted silhouette. A great way to ensure you’re feeling particularly curvy is to opt for a basque like the Delphi. Keep the look sleek with black opaque tights and court shoes, then add on the glitzy jewellery for a sparkling Christmas look! A glittering clutch bag and fitted black evening coat will complete your sophisticated outfit.
On trend separates + simple accessories
If you’re a little more fashion-forward than the rest of your office, then why not try wearing some of this season’s covetable separates? Geometric prints on blazers and skinny trousers are super fashionable, or try a pair of formal shorts with patterned tights and a silk blouse. The classic pencil skirt will never date either; how about pairing it will a graphic-print t-shirt for a slightly different look? Simple gold or silver accessories will complete the look without overpowering the outfit. Any style of bra would look great with this outfit so why not go comfortable but sexy with the Leila Balconette Bra.
Whatever you choose to wear to the Christmas party, make sure you’re wearing supportive and comfortable lingerie; that way you’ll be able to enjoy your night knowing you look fabulous, inside and out!
