Now, before you conclude that you are reading the blog written by a panda, hear me out.
Let’s talk about some of the common challenges in trying to create an outfit for this special holidasy occasion. For company holiday parties, staying classy and appropriate is of the utmost importance. Trying to look stylish and put-together while adhering to this rule of thumb is often the tricky part. Additionally, this faux fur coat, or faux fur coats in general, is challenging in that it makes me look top-heavy. So here are a few things I tried to be mindful of when creating this outfit.
1. Use a jumpsuit to balance out the over-the-top glamour
Jumpsuits have the edginess that a dress or a skirt won’t give you. When pulling off a faux fur coat which are usually super glamorous and lavish, pair it with a cool-girl kind of jumpsuit that will prevent the overall outfit from looking over the top.
2. Keep it simple color-wise
With the oomph of the fur coat and the edginess of the jumpsuit, the last thing you want to do is to add more dimension to the outfit. Keep it within black and white like I do, and have no more than two colors at a time in your outfit. Additionally, the pinstripe pattern gives the outfit a professional and formal look, so that’s also a good variation to add.
3. Stay elongated with high heels
This one is a no-brainer. Unless you have legs like Kate Moss or Gisele Bündchen, wear those 4 inch heels. I’ll be the first one to admit that none of my outfits would’ve looked passable without those heels… they’re painful, but totally worth it.
