25 HR-Approved Dresses to Wear to Your Office Holiday Party

It’s that time of year when you finally get to cut loose with colleagues, drink some rum-infused eggnog and demonstrate impeccable social etiquette that will land you a big promotion in the new year. Hey, a girl can dream, OK? If this is on your agenda, then you’re going to want to dress to impress!

There’s no reason you can’t stand out with a fabulous dress at your office holiday party, it’s just a matter of attracting the right kind of attention (no eye rolling, you!). Those two goals may sound tricky to reconcile but have no fear, we’ve selected a variety of gorgeous holiday party dresses that will not only make you giddy but keep you feeling quietly confident that human resources ain’t got nothing on you and your hemline.

The key here is to strike a balance. You don’t want to be a wallflower, but you also don’t want to be too over the top, which can be easy during a season where sequins, metallics and beading reign supreme. Therefore, if you opt for a glittery top, go for a solid on bottom. If you aim for a comfortable sweater and pant combo, make sure to dress things up with your accessories. You get the picture. Click through for some awesome office holiday party dresses that will have all your coworkers wishing they were as style savvy as you.
