Style Me: Work Appropriate Holiday Dresses

It’s almost December and holiday events are filling up your calendar! You already know what you are renting for events hosted by your friends and family but there is one dress that always stumps you. Every. Single. Year.  The work event dress.


We’ve asked our stylists to choose their favorite dresses that stand out, are stylish and appropriate for a work event, and also got them to share their best tips for pulling together your look!


Tip 1: A dress can only be two of three: fitted, low cut and above the knee. Follow this rule. If you wear a dress above the knee, make sure it doesn’t have a plunging neckline. This is the first step for a sophisticated choice.


Tip 2: Choose a dress you feel comfortable wearing. Don’t wear a dress that you will be pulling up all night or something you think you can’t breathe in. Remember, you are there to have fun and may be photographed!


Tip 3: Wear the right undergarments! It may be the right dress, but the wrong undergarments can make the dress look completely wrong. Our stylists suggest wearing Spanx, NuBras and Hanky Pankys as no fail options.


Tip 4: Don’t be afraid of color! Just because you are attending a work event doesn’t mean you have to wear black. Experiment with brighter colors and patterns and opt for subtle make up and classic jewelry.
