What Not to Wear for Office Christmas?

The million dollar question

office christmas

Dress up games as young girls have proven to provide us with numerous ideas on trending fashion and style sense with a unique blend of personality to it. What no one typically teaches (except mommy) is what to avoid wearing at different occasions; life teaches some the hard way while others are simply better observers. And now that you’re a grown up, if the next moment from ‘lavenders blue’ is right in your closet mirror chanting ‘dress me up’ you need to take back a moment and reflect. Ponder on what you’re not supposed to wear at the much-awaited office Christmas party.

Christmas Sweaters

Yes it was made/gifted with tons of affection and many sentiments are weaved in it; nevertheless, it shall be kept aside for the informal ugly Christmas sweater parties with your bosom friends, only. Your office party, even if not very formal, is definitely not an event to show up with this kind of attire. Only if one wants to be a laughing stock should they dare to do so.

Shimmery Tree

Yes, it is holiday season; but aren’t the Christmas trees enough to be dressed the way they should? It doesn’t have to be you too. Bright colors are in fashion in the season but make sure you don’t become a walking talking Christmas ball or wreath yourself. Not at your office Christmas party at the least. After all, you wouldn’t fancy buntings and lights wrapped around you being stagnant in the lounge.

Sky isn’t the limit, so limit your heels

You aren’t aiming to the tallest person in fancy dress show; it’s your corporate Christmas party, and committing such a faux pas here doesn’t make you look good at all. You wouldn’t want to be made fun of after you return to the desk post-holidays..

Too Casual

Sweatshirt and shorts? Next, you all must be planning to go out for a picnic. Overly casual is clear no-no for an office Christmas part. Such attire gives off the message that you didn’t make an effort to dress up accordingly, and you wouldn’t want to give that impression to your bosses. The party isn’t the workplace, but it is still an office party.

Too Tight, Too Obnoxious

Wearing your dress too tight or showing off too much would only result in the impression you don’t want to give to any of your colleagues. There isn’t a strict dress code for corporate Christmas parties, but that doesn’t mean one can chuck all attire rules into the bin. A nice moderate hemline works well when it comes to your corporate parties. Get ready to flaunt your sophistication in style.

Jingly Bless, on You

You don’t want to be labeled the Santa or reindeer of the party; it’s not a costume party you’re going to (unless it is!). Bright Christmas socks, headbands and other accessories all come in the same category where you put up all the Christmas stuff and props in closet saved for a whole year.

Christmas parties are a great opportunity to interact with your colleagues outside the workplace, make the most of it with live entertainment and wonderful collection of drinks and food at Trinity Bar, Dublin. Memories and snaps of moments you will cherish for times to come await you.

Christmas Gifts for Colleagues

Simple ideas go a long way at work.

Christmas gifts

Bribery is a crime but gifts aren’t, not when you have a big heart and it is Christmas. Work colleagues are the ones we share all day with and it turns into a family that often preys together. So, why not plan sweet somethings for your work family and wrap them and hang on Xmas tree in the traditional manner? A little generosity goes a long way, and gifts are a tried and tested recipe for strengthening relations over time. Plan a list for your work buddies according to their taste and personalities and surprise them with how thoughtful you could be. Here are some options you can consider when going Xmas shopping looking for Christmas gifts for your colleagues.

Selfie Stick and Shutter

With the term coined and the craze witnessed all over the world, a selfie stick won’t go to waste for those suffering from selfitis, or simply anyone who likes to preserve nigh ever memory. Let them capture photos to their heart’s content and fill up the memory tank with lots of cheers.

Book Cover for EBook readers/ Tablets

For the reading addicts who read cover to cover, present them with a classic book cover for unique design and identification of their tablet or e-book reader. It gives the device a stylish look, allowing customization according to the user’s personality.

Knitted Mugs

Not knitted mugs per se, but knitted covers for mugs. Available in different colors and patterns, your coffee loving workstation neighbor would probably go gaga over it. A simple Christmas gift idea to have warm hands in winters.

Beauty Essentials

Organic body scrubs, soaps and essential bath oils always have a place in a lady’s closet. Gift your sophisticated Sally a pack of bath essentials and aroma therapy oils for a fragrant Christmas and blossoming friendship.

Makeup/ Cosmetics

What woman wouldn’t want a nice branded eye shadow palette or gloss range to go with various outfits. Cosmetics are often an easy choice when the receiver of the gift is a lady and is often a celebrated item.

Cufflinks and Watches

For the masculine party, cufflinks and watches are the suitable Christmas gifts for almost any type of colleague because work is where you dress up formal; so spend on a decent choice for your cool workplace buddy.

Desk Organizers

Desk organizers are always in fashion, decent and keep your workplace tidy while keeping all the tiny stuff assorted. Add nice stationary to it and it turns out to be a very good Christmas gift for your very good fellows.

Personalized Coasters

For the neat freaks that love coffee but abhor stains on their glass table, a personalized coaster is a simple yet delightful idea for Christmas gift. Add a note or motivational quote that is evergreen and live in their memories long after you’ve switched job.

Compact Mirrors

With personalized covers showing them the ‘Princess in Pink’ or ‘Lady Gold’, you can amuse your work bff with this gift they’d carry in bags every day to work.

The list can go on forever – any suggestions from any of you to add to the list would be more than welcome. For the very best experience, the Christmas gift opening ceremony could be arranged at one of the best bars in Dublin, the Trinity Bar, which provides nonstop entertainment and music along with fine dining choices and perfect location for all your colleagues in the heart of Temple Bar in Dublin City.
