The Office Party - Tips for Dressing Appropriately

That old saying, 'Clothes make the man', has a lot of truth in it. In this case, the right clothes for an office party can make the woman and that woman will make the best impression. You simply have to succeed in achieving a good look for your office do. Do not dismiss the event with the attitude of being 'just the office party and everyone knows me'.

These days an 'office do' has a wide range of meanings. It is a phrase used in the broadest way here to indicate anything from after work drinks to an expenses paid weekend. You may get a murder mystery break at a good hotel, or paint ball experience in the woods. Inevitably such events will culminate in an evening function with an element of formality where you are expected to show good manners. For that you must have the right attire.

At anytime of the year you may be faced with a special party, prom dance, office function or after work do. If you don't have a good idea of how formal an event the occasion might be, then just ask a reliable superior 'how should we dress for this event?'. If still in doubt, you have to play safe and opt for more a formal dress look, rather than a dressed down chic, or clubbing vamp look. The event is a chance to show that you really can scrub up well and look a million dollars. Treat the occasion as an opportunity to demonstrate that you are worthy of being a higher paid employee, should a job position arise out of the blue. Don't be a fool and miss that chance.

The essentials here are that for an office event you should dress appropriately for the occasion. Office social events and informal moments at company presentations and training events are often used to assess individuals. Employers use the situation to see how an employee interacts with all others - menial to high staff, customers and clients.

Superiors may consider the way you handle yourself and intermingle with fellow guests at such events, including evening parties, important for future assessing your promotion. Such higher positions might require interaction with potential clients, with you as the sole representative of the firm. Don't ever forget manners with serving staff either. The person who is rude to a waiter, bellboy, receptionist or cleaner may well be giving away some unpleasant personality traits that make others cringe with embarrassment.

An office event may seem like an all expenses opportunity to let your hair down for a drunken evening, but it may well tar you with a reputation for being unable to handle alcohol or deport yourself as management might expect of you when in company. Take every opportunity and turn it to your advantage rather than seeing it as a freebie event, that may have the long term result of taking you out of the employee progression ladder.
