5 Things Not to Wear to the Company Christmas Party

You would think this would be easy. After all you work with these people five days a week. But for some reason many still struggle with what not to wear to the company Christmas party. Here are 5 things to steer clear of.

Christmas Costumes - Really?

Christmas Costumes – Really?

Christmas Costumes: Unless the invitation specifically says “costume” or “dress-up”, I would stay far away from the costume look. It’s okay at university but not in a professional environment. And PLEASE avoid exposing body parts you would otherwise keep covered during normal business hours!

No Sexy Santa at the Office Party

Sexy Santa: Unless you work in the office of a bordello, stay away from all the sexy Santa looks. I know it’s velvet, has fur and sparkles…but DON’T do it or you may catch more than a cold!

No Edible Clothing

Edible Clothing and Mistletoe: Now I LOVE chocolate, and Lindor is one of my favourites…but I’m not going to cover my dress in treats and deal with all the hands grabbing for bits…of chocolate. Plus with this dress I would be worried that as everyone was pulling of the chocolate skirt it may cause a slip up top and you’d be part of office lore for all the wrong reasons. As for mistletoe, not over your head, not on your shirt/top, or belt buckle…just say NO!

Crazy High Heels

Crazy High Heels

Crazy High Heels: Visions of sugar plums may be dancing in your head, but you aren’t going to be doing much dancing in crazy high heels. Not to mention the risk you are taking walking back to the car at the end of the night and a few drinks. I’m pretty sure if you fall off your shoes, you aren’t covered by workers compensation.

The Ugly Christmas Sweater

The Ugly Christmas Sweater: Really? Do I have to even explain this one?!

***Disclaimer – if you are in any of these pictures…I’m sorry…all of you are gorgeous people and I don’t know WHY you are wearing what you are wearing…in fact most of you probably have very good reasons that I will never understand. Just please don’t do it again.

There you have it 5 things not to wear to the company Christmas party!
