Party In Style: 4 Holiday-Ready Looks

There are a ton of perks to working from home—making my own hours, occasionally working in my pajamas, hanging out with this guy—but I’ve recently discovered one of the major downfalls: no office holiday party. And since Harrison’s company is doing a staff-only party this year, my chances of attending a festive affair are quickly dwindling. Fortunately, we’re having a small holiday get-together with friends this weekend and we’ll have a nice dinner by ourselves on Christmas day, so I still have a few chances to get decked out before the season’s up.

I’m sure many of you will be heading to a few holiday parties over the next several days, too. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been so busy this month that you’ve barely had time to think about what to wear. Worry not, ladies: I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve, whether you’re heading to a casual gathering with friends or a dress-to-impress soiree. Check out these four holiday party outfits fit for a budget or a total blowout:
