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

KK’s DOs AND DON’Ts FOR A COMPANY PARTY
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!
