The run-up to Christmas can be filled with excitement and magic. Everywhere we go there are decorations and lights, Christmas music is playing, and storefronts are dressing for the season. On nights out and at parties you might be eager to add some glamour to your look, but in the office, it can be harder. If you are bored of your workwear and keen to add a little sparkle to your office attire in the countdown to Christmas, or you are looking for some ways to take your office outfits straight to the office Christmas party, here are some great ways that you can add some sparkle.
Add a Touch of Sparkle
When it comes to glamming up your work outfits, there’s a delicate balance between adding a little sparkle and going too far. Instead of looking at glittery dresses and sequined trousers, look at the smaller details. These classic star jumpers from Luella are a great way to add a little fun while still looking professional and staying warm and comfortable.
Keep a Sensible Base
To avoid going too far, try to stick to a sensible and professional base. Black wide-leg trousers are great, as they work well with anything and give you a fantastic base to build from.
Upgrade Your Accessories
If you want to remain professional when it comes to your clothes and shoes, adding some glamour to your accessories can be a subtler way to add some sparkle this Christmas. If you are feeling fun, Christmas-themed earrings, badges and other jewellery can be great, but if more sophisticated sparkle is what you are after, adding some bling to your jewellery choices will work well. Even things like a more colourful bag can lift your workplace attire.
Find Statement Shoes
Statement shoes can be a brilliant way to add some sparkle and fun to even the plainest office wear. Bright colours, glitter and patent leather all look incredible with shirts, dresses, or wide-leg trousers, and even if the sparkle isn’t something anyone else can see, knowing it’s there can lift your mood.
Be Bold with Makeup and Hair Choices
Your clothing choices certainly aren’t the only ways to add some sparkle to your look. A new hair colour can be a bold choice, and something deep like plum or burgundy can be very seasonal. Hair accessories like scarves, headbands, or even gem-encrusted pins can add some sparkle.
When it comes to makeup, winter is a great time of year to experiment and make some changes from your usual routine. Smokey eyes with a touch of glitter can be a subtle way to add drama to your look, and a bold sweep of dark lipstick or a brighter shade of red can highlight your best feature. Even a stroke of highlighter can elevate your look.
Adding some sparkle to your office wear can be a great way to get into the Christmas spirit and enjoy the season. Just make sure you stick to any regulations and guidelines your workplace may have.
