Dressing up for the office party with the stars

People look forward to an office party as one of those rare occasions where they get an opportunity to unwind with their colleagues. Nevertheless there is always the what-do-I-wear demon lurking at the back of our minds.

Though the environment is a relaxed one it wouldn’t do to forget that an office party is still a professional soiree, so when it comes to dressing up you don’t want to be attracting attention for the wrong reasons.

Stick to the theme if there is any and remember that such gatherings aren’t the right place to flaunt your latest micro mini. Take a cue from these stars for dressing up.


Sheath dress
Fit is the key to the right sheath dress. Work yours with prints, bead work, lace and add interesting accessories as seen on Adhuna Akhtar who paired hers with daisy embellished heels. Sonali Bendre on the other hand went for a printed number while Kangana chose a patterned one. As sheath dresses tend to have a longer hemline pointed pumps are preferred.


Coloured pant suit or quirky jackets
Rock a pant suit in a monotone and add some interesting accessories. Anushka Sharma was seen wearing a bright yellow pantsuit while Freida chose one in a muted hue. Deepika Padukone on the other hand wore an all white outfit and paired it with a bright printed jacket.

Tea length is hot right now so take inspiration from Huma Qureshi by avoiding bulky footwear and pairing yours with strappy sandals. With her snake skin pencil skirt Priyanka Chopra shows the right way to incorporate animal print into your outfit. Kangana on the other hand wears her skirt in a rather cute manner with an embellished collar top and mary jane heels.

While you can never go wrong with a little black dress, don’t go for something that is too short or too boring. Neha Dhupia updated her LBD with a fitted jacket, Shilpa went for an sequined one while Aishwarya went for a flared look with side panels and a leather collar.
A Jumpsuit with an interesting cut and fit can look work well for an office party. Take cue from Parineeti Chopra and pair yours with an interesting clutch and standout heels.
