Office party season is upon us, and if you don’t fancy squeezing into your Spanx in the Ladies and trying to keep the creases out of your party frock on the morning commute, Two for Joy has compiled a guide of the best office-to-party looks that can take you from the boardroom to the dance floor in the shake of a reindeer’s tail...
Two for Joy is a British independent ethical label, dedicated to bringing you stylish, slow fashion items that will transcend the seasons and work hard for you. All of our garments are responsibly sourced, sustainably made, fairly priced, and - as an added Christmas bonus - we give 15 per cent of the sale price of any item to the Mayamiko charity all year round, which works to alleviate poverty in Africa.
Check out these looks that can make the transition from office to party by simply adding a few extra accessories...
The shorter dress from our popular Any-way collection is an absolute staple for party season, as it can be worn in multiple ways. Simply add a knitted cardigan and ankle boots for a demure office look, and then ramp up the glam factor at night time by experimenting with the looks to create a strapless or cross-backed style. Add some sparkly earrings, silver heels and a red lip for a spectacular look with minimum effort.
Our silky-look kimono-sleeved blouse comes in a seasonal Pineneedle green, which is perfect for festive parties. Simple and elegant and with a gorgeous button-up back and pussy-cat bow detail at the back for added glam, it looks great with skinny black trousers, brogues and a blazer for the day time, and update with heels and glittery rose-gold jewellery for the evening for some serious sparkle.
This beautiful top is embellished with beads for a simple yet sparkly look. Team with a black tailored suit for the boardroom, and change it around with a leather jacket, art-deco-style costume jewellery and heels and a sleek up-do for a stunning party look.
This pleated full skirt in our deep blue colour-way is super twirly and makes a real statement. Add flats and a long sleeved top for work and switch for a shorter sleeved skinny top, simple silver jewellery, smoky eye make-up and black velvet wedges for a smoldering night-time look.
Add some subtle sparkle to your look with this lovely matt-black sequinned top. Tuck into a pencil skirt and add a cropped jacket for work, and team with black skinny jeans, jewellery and statement heels for a look that will take you from the office party to the cocktail bar, and onto a club afterwards!
Have a great time - and Merry Christmas from the Two for Joy team.
