What to wear to my husband's office holiday party?

Q. I have to go with my husband at his office Christmas party. Any suggestion what would be appropriate to wear? I’m 28 yrs old and size 4.

A. For your husband’s holiday party, you want to strike the balance between festive and fun yet conservative. You want to impress your husband’s colleagues without giving the office gossip something to chatter about. Since you didn’t mention whether this is a casual or formal affair, we are going to assume that the attire falls somewhere in between. Here are two chic yet understated looks to try.


The first look pairs black pants with a sequin tank and velvet blazer for just the right amount of festive sparkle. A rhinestone cuff and platform pumps finish the look. The second look starts with a simple and conservative timeless black dress. Swap out the belt that comes with the dress and add a sequin bow belt, along with a bauble necklace and cocktail ring to turn your understated dress into the perfect party look.
