Company holiday parties are always an interesting occasion to dress for - you want to be fun and festive and show everyone how great you look when you actually put some real effort into it, but you still need to be appropriate.
Here are some outfits that I think would work well for the occasion, at different levels of formality:
Straight from work:
Jessica Biel in a pleated Michael Kors shift with a yellow Fendi clutch and silver pumps; Rashida Jones in a sheer blouse and jewel-tone trousers from Theyskens' Theory, with a studded blazer, silver Graziela earrings, a rectangular Dana Rebecca Designs ring and cap-toe heels; Rachael Taylor in a drop-waist LBD from The Row, the label's leather bag and cap-toe Proenza Schouler pumps.Cocktail party:
Emma Stone in a jewel-tone Burberry design, Jennifer Meyer's gold ring and bangles and sleek pumps; Demi Moore in a jeweled sheath, gold jewelry, a bright pink clutch and peep-toe Jimmy Choos; Anne Hathaway in a streamlined Victoria Beckham sheath, stud earrings and black heels.
A formal affair:
Olivia Palermo in a sophisticated black Christian Dior gown; Kate Mara in a sheer Jason Wu column and gold box clutch; Selena Gomez in a velvet Dolce & Gabbana design and lasercut clutch.
Or you can follow one of the F/W trends:
OXBLOOD: Naomie Harris in a strapless burgundy dress, with a wide cuff and pointy-toe booties.
BAROQUE: Emma Roberts in Rag & Bone’s skirt, Adeler studs, a sparkling clutch and gold pumps.
YELLOW: Jessica Chastain in Stella McCartney's yellow lace dress with Harry Winston diamonds and nude Louboutins.
A MAXI SKIRT: Emma Roberts in a Jonathan Saunders embroidered blouse and trousers with Caleo jewelry and a black Swarovski clutch.
A BOLD PRINT: Olivia Munn in a Peter Pilotto design with diamond studs and patent leather Christian Louboutin T-straps.
