‘Tis the season of many a holiday party. From Thanksgiving dinner at your significant others’ to work events, your calendar is probably jam packed for the next few months. And one of the questions plaguing women often can be, “what should I wear?” I’m going to suggest some ideas for you all depending on what sort of celebration it is. Here we go!
Cocktail attire is often appropriate for a holiday work event. That said, there’s a fine balance; you want something festive, but not too sexy. There are plenty of cocktail dresses that are either too short or too revealing and you don’t want to be distracting for this reason.

Thanksgiving dinner can often allow for more casual outfits because you’re eating at 4pm and are usually surrounded by close family and friends. You also may be planning to pass out watching the football game from a food coma and so wearing anything tight would be no bueno. Stay cozy, yet stylish with these ideas.
