PARTY IN THE OFFICE
The company’s ordered in some delicious food, the festive tunes are LOUD, and the drinks are flowing. It’s office Christmas party time, ofc, meaning you've gotta bring it.

If so, this is your chance to dress up ✨extra nice✨ and eat your body weight in mince pies 🥧 Channel your inner supermodel w/ a show-stopping Christmas party dress, topped off with mandatory sequins (party season, duh) and some silver extras.
A ROUND AT THE LOCAL
Just because the invite’s a bit more chill, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t serve 🔔 This time, ditch the sparkles for A/W aesthetics - muted tones 'n' all. A basic tee and baggy jeans will be cosy and cool enough for a night of drinks and DMCs. To seal the seasonal deal, throw on a statement leather-look coat (the more distressed, the better).
