The holiday season is about spending time with family and friends. However, we often tend to overlook the friends we see everyday. The ones we take for granted, even when they sit right beside us, helping us on the next big pitch or covering for us when we’re on leave – our colleagues! So this December, the Stylista team decided to hook off work early, reschedule our meetings and head out for a big, boozy lunch together!
Dressing for the occasion isn’t an easy feat though, which is why we found the perfect outfit. Here’s what you need to throw on:
1. Pinstriped kaftan dress: The perfect culmination of professional, sophisticated and flirty, this baby shows them that you mean business but know how to let your hair down too!
2. A functional bag: Save the clutches for your next night out. A work lunch means you’re still on call, and you might need to send a quick last minute email or two. Carry a bag that’s large enough to fit a tablet or a file and you’ll be good to go.
3. Modest pumps: Stow those stilettos away for now. A pointy-toed court shoe with a mid-heel is the way to go on an outing with your work friends.
4. A standout accessory: Keeping it simple is the key. One accessory will do the trick. We chose a pretty gold statement cuff to offset the stripes and hint of red perfectly.
