1)DO be yourself. These people know you, chances are you work with them every day, so dont indulge your cross dressing alter ego just to cause some controversy. If you are a laid back kind of guy, why not invest in some colourful Lyle and Scott from Diffusion? They are casual enough reflect your attitude but with their bright colours they will cause a splash- without all of the effort of false eyelashes…
2)DONT wear something too revealing/tight. It is better to leave something to the imagination because otherwise no one will be able to get on with their work the next week, for thinking about you in that PVC catsuit. So why not try a dress from Diffusion? We have some styles which are the perfect balance of feminine and appropriate for a work do.
3)DO accessorise (wisely). The perfect accessory can make an outfit. For the ladies, try one of our Paul Smith bags for instant chic. The guys, how about a trillby from beatnik inspired brand Junk de Luxe? This hat will give you ultimate kudos from colleagues who just wish they could pull off that look.
4)DONT go too casual. If you love nothing more than throwing on a pair of G-Star Raw jeans and a hoodie and are not a fan of dressing up, how about finding a happy medium? Diesel is a brand which expertly and effortlessly bridges the gap between smart and casual. Try some of their faded jeans with a chunky belted cardigan for the comfort that you love in a style which will be smart enough for Christmas.
5)DO wrap up warm. Walking to/from the location of your party while desperately clutching your silky dress for warmth isnt going to work…or look good. Barbour has a selection of jackets for men and women, available here at Diffusion which are country chic down to a T- so why not invest in one of these timeless coats to bring a bit of that rural feel to your outfit.
