The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle

‘Tis the season for holiday work parties! It’s that tricky time of the year when you want to look your best, without looking like you’re Real Housewife at a reunion show. When I want to take an Uber to Fancy Town, I bust out the ol’ razzle dazzle – anything sequined, glittery, and sparkly. I think a skirt is just enough twinkle to shine at something like an office party. It’s sparkly and fun without looking like you’re in a pageant gown.

Skirts are everything to me right now, I’ve actually started making my own – what?! They come in so many different styles and lengths, it’s easy to find a skirt for every shape and size. I picked out some lovely sparkly things that could easily (with just a little bit of styling) do double duty at a work party and a party-party. Let’s dive into this skirt universe and find the perfect thing to dazzle your co-workers this year.

H&M+ Sequined Skirt

Confession: I already bought this skirt, H&M had a great Cyber Monday sale! I’m actually wearing this to my own work holiday party, I’ll try to remember to document it. Normally I prefer more a-line styles, but this skirt is muy flattering.

I’m sad that H&M didn’t have all these colors available in their H&M+ line, but sizes XS – L can enjoy this glittery rainbow for less than $20!

If you’ve already got a sparkly mini skirt, you can still make it work for the office party. Tone down the clubby feel with some tights, boom, now you’re working a retro 60s mod feel.
I bought this skirt too, (don’t give me that look it was on sale!) but I don’t think it’ll arrive in time for my work party. The length of this one might make it a bit too much for a work party, but just as with the striped skirt above, pair it with some tights and you’re good to go.

Okay, I bought this one too but I swear it’s the last one! Midi skirts are the bessssst, don’t let the hemline scare you. When I first ventured into the world of midis I thought the length would be too long and look frumpy. I was wrong. Just try it, please?!

The hunt is on to find a plus size version of this, I know it’s going to make me feel like my own knight in shining armor.

Sequin Skater Skirt

Who doesn’t love the swish of a skater skirt? Add in the sequin sparkle magic, HELLO. Make sure you bring a first aid kit and warn HR, because you are going to knock everyone dead.

Silver Sequins Mini Skirt

Now I almost wish I would have lobbied to have our holiday party at an ice rink so I could get decked out in this silver sparkler and pretend I was in The Cutting Edge.


Whatever you end up wearing to the office party, I’m sure you’re going to look fantastic. But if you’re looking for a little touch of holiday oomph, seriously consider some sparkle. It’s Christmas, so why not?

Party responsibly, and watch out for that Snake Juice.
