What to Wear: DOs and DON’Ts of Office Parties

Published on December 14, 2011

So many young friends have been asking about office party etiquette that we decided to publish our own guidelines.

Tory Burch Perfect Dress for an Office Party!


Naomi Dress ($1095)


DO:  Dress modestly.  Nothing low cut, too short or too tight – no matter what others are wearing.   Save your sexy dress for a night out with friends.   DON’T: Show décolleté.  It is distracting and sends the wrong kind of message.

DO: Dress festively.   Pick a LDB and put in some bling.  Fun sparkling earrings, some rhinestone brooches and a big crystal cuff, high heels and black patterned stockings are also a fun way to make an outfit special.

DO: Set up a strategy in advance.  Is there someone in the company that could help your career?   Remember this is an opportunity to socialize with some higher-ups.   DON’T: Be obviously sucking up to the bosses.

DON’T: Flirt – everyone is watching.  If you are interested in a co-worker make other opportunities to get to know each other – no making out in the corner!

DON’T: Pre-drink -  wait until you get to the party to start to party.    DON’T: Overdrink.  Start with water and alternate every other drink.  And going out to bars “with the guys” afterwards is also not a great idea.    DON’T: Eat seaford hor d’oeuvres, nothing is worse than fishy breath.

DO: Make it a point to thank the people who have put the party on,  whether it is the head of the company, the head of your department or your co-worker who helped with the organization.

DO:  Have a wonderful time and DO send us your DOs and Don’ts!
