Here’s an outfit I threw together for the Mr.’s work party when the invite said business casual. I wanted to be dressed up but not too “holiday.” A cocktail dress just wasn’t quite it.
So I stepped it up a notch with dressy separates. I went with a flouncy skirt and heels but paired them with a conservative blouse with a fun bow detail.
And I was glad I did wear something a bit more dressy than business casual. It is always better to err on too dressy than underdressed during the holidays. Remember, dressing up is a sign of politeness.
