What to Wear: Office Holiday Party

PhotobucketFor this second outfit in my Holiday Lookbook series, I wanted to play with one of my favorite combos: pink and purple. Who says festive colors are confined to the traditional red, green, royal blue, and metallic hues? My rule of thumb for dressing for the season: keep it in the jewel tone family. Photobucket   Photobucket This look is ideal for those of us who have a holiday party at the office this year. If you work in a more conservative environment, skip the shorts and grab your favorite pencil skirt or pair of sleek trousers.   Photobucket  Photobucket To take your look from "office" to "party," darken up your eye makeup by adding black liner and blending some dark shadow in your crease for an instant smokey eye. Don't forget to switch your flats for a pair of girly heels!   Photobucket   Banana Republic Shirt | The Limited shorts (old, also here) and argyle vest | Nine West shoes | Nicole Miller tweed jacket | MAC "Up the Amp" lipstick
