What to Wear for the Company Party 2020: Five Fashion Ideas

Read min


Not vulgar, while not boring - this is your task.

A company party differs from any other party in the fact, that you hang out with your colleagues, with whom you will still have to work in future. And this means that your outfit for a company party shouldn’t be too provocative or too sexy. We’re going to tell you what to look for.

What is better not to put on a company party

Taking into account common sense and a dress code for company events, let’s figure out with which outfits you are to be more careful at a party with colleagues, even if the December mood requires dancing.

Leather clothes

Dressing in leather from head to toe is a daring decision, especially when it comes to work. Still, there are too many stereotypes associated with leather clothes to take risks and put it on at a company party. Even if this is your favorite material in the world, one leather skirt in the base color will be enough.

Colored velvet

This gorgeous fabric is not so easy to wear. In voluminous things, velvet looks too pompous, and with large ornaments it creates the feeling of a dress from a distant past. We don’t advise you to get involved with such a moody texture on such an important occasion.

Completely transparent things

Still, a blouse, from under which everyone can see you underwear, is almost the same thing as coming to a party directly in underwear. Protect your reputation and be more careful with translucent outfits at a company party.

Be sure, you will still have time to have fun in lace and satin nighties, but at the working event a frivolous aesthetics in the spirit of the 1920s is still not too appropriate. Unless it will exist in the form of a "secret" top under your jacket.

How to dress for a company party

When it comes to a company party, you should immediately wake up with a sense of proportion and control, because even one little mistake can cost a reputation. Try to find harmony with your inner desire to shine. As an inspiration, we’ve collected several looks that are suitable for a festive event in a working atmosphere.

Look No. 1: for a cocktail party

Carolina Herrera Fall-Winter 2019/2020

A tuxedo dress as a holiday gown is a tricky hint of an office style that colleagues will certainly appreciate. Pay attention to the length so as not to shock your colleagues with an extreme mini, and add attractive accessories to the dress - for example, brooches on the collar or heels in bright colors.

Look No. 2: for an informal evening

Christian Dior fall-winter 2019/2020

Take advantage of the fact that now the wide belts are back in fashion, and use this accessory to combine two things that you definitely already have in your closet: a basic knitted top (our choice is longsleeve) and a midi skirt. It is worth adding a strip, like Dior, and a black bottom, so you get a look in the French style.

Look No. 3: for a formal evening

Cushinie Fall-Winter 2019/2020

Queen Letizia puts on overalls for ceremonial receptions, Melania Trump wears them during official visits, and Hollywood stars skillfully adapt once work clothes in an ideal outfit for red carpet. We take overalls for a note for a company party, especially if it is planned in some beautiful place and with an evening dress code. You can always add impressive earrings and an openwork necklace if the outfit seems too calm.

Look No. 4: a universal look with a dress

Brandon Maxwell Fall-Winter 2019/2020

In an ideal world, each of us has such a dress - like a magic wand for any solemn occasion: it sits on the figure as if it were sewn for you, and allows you to deftly play with accessories and jewelry. Since we are talking about a company party, pay attention to whether your underwear doesn’t shine through the dress (usually, knitwear does it). Midi length - the most relevant this season - will give you more options for choosing shoes: high boots for an event with a terrace or open shoes for an indoor party.

Look No. 5: a universal look with a suit

Alexander McQueen fall-winter 2019/2020

Glossy magazines recommend going to New Year's events in pantsuits, as in “new evening dresses”. A turtleneck can be worn underneath so as not to freeze. And after the holidays are in the past, you can still use this outfit in your everyday wardrobe.
