It is hard to believe how quickly the holiday season is approaching! As we round out the end of the year, these few weeks are often filled with family events, to-do lists, shopping for gifts, and a plethora of crazed, coffee-induced, insanely-jam-packed days.
And if that isn’t enough to keep you busy, this time of year is also when many companies host their annual office party! So pop the bubbly and celebrate with your colleagues, mentors, support staff, bosses, and so on. Even if you work for yourself, this is the time of year for wining and dining vendors, suppliers, and prospective clients for 2017 … so it’s important that you look your best.
Remember, there’s a fine line between festive and office-appropriate during these events. If you work for a larger company, the office holiday party may be one of the only times you’re exposed to the c-suite at your firm. It’s a time to meet new people within your organization, and for these new colleagues to form their first impression of you. The same opinion forming is also happening if you’re attending an office party as a guest of your spouse or significant other. So this year, I have curated several fabulous (and tall-friendly) outfits that exude class + sophistication + elegance and professionalism.
Whether your office party is a casual lunch outing during office hours, more business formal with cocktails and/or dinner after work, or even a black tie event, I have rounded up some of the best office party outfits for us tall women. Many of these looks can cross over from one category or another, so mix and match to your heart’s content.
Have fun this holiday season, and be sure to post your office party outfits over on the Tall Guides Facebook Group. To see more workwear, corporate style and business fashion picks by Lauren, head over to her blog
