Ah the office party...it often takes place right after work, so you have no time to change. Or maybe it's your significant other's work party and you still may not have a lot of time to get dolled up while trying to get the kids ready for the babysitter. Don't fret! Here are some great and super easy ideas to keep you looking classy and cool...all under $50!
Lucky magazine has a handy article that features 11 party dresses under $50. I really love the one-shoulder Angie Star Dress ($49.50 from Delia's) and Mossimo Black Flutter Sleeve Dress ($24.99 from Target).
You can also wear jeans and a cardigan, but dress it up with a detailed camisole underneath and matching ribbon belt like this look from Ann Taylor. If you don't want to splurge on the sweater, pull one out of your closet, layer with a tank top, and get the ribbon from your local craft shop.
Also check out a previous post called How to Dress Up Your Look for the Holidays. It's full of accessories perfect to take almost anything from day to night. Oh and if you bought everything on that guide (belt, earrings, necklace, shoes...) it still wouldn't add up to $125...and all you need is one piece. Cheap can be chic!
What are you wearing to your office party?
