It’s that time of the year again for those doing the 9-5 – yep the Christmas do is creeping up on us again. So has the ‘What do I wear?’ panic. Dress or playsuit? Or how about a two-piece suit? Hair up or hair down? Red lip or smokey eye? The decisions are endless. So our Stylefix team took to site to pull their favourite festive looks for the big night to give you some work do wardrobe inspiration!

So rather than doing a Britney, I’ve decided to take a more grown-up luxe approach to party dressing with a nod to my favourite decade – the 70s – which is still on trend after a stellar year. I’ll be wearing this sheer blouse over a black bralet to show just about the right amount of flesh in front of colleagues, pairing it with some pants and adding a touch of Christmas sparkle with an embroidered bag. A bonus? This look is pretty much spillage-proof so I won’t be worrying if the night gets out of hand…

I’d pick this lace playsuit. With it’s subtle sheer detailing, pretty lace trims and delicate straps – it’s the perfect partner for a night of dancing. And keeping with style that never dates, my throw-on would be a simple blazer for the journey home.
As far as accessories go, I’d finish with an intricate lace-up heel and a box clutch big enough to store my Christmas Do essentials – mainly lipstick, because I do allow some colour somewhere!
