Holiday party dress codes are hard to decipher.
There’s a fine line between festive and completely inappropriate.
But don’t worry — we’ve come up with a quick guide so that you don’t embarrass yourself in front of your boss.
Stick with a navy jacket for holiday shindigs. They’re classic and professional — and can be re-worn for practically any occasion. We recommend that you avoid black — it’s too harsh.

We recommend going for a light-blue striped shirt — which looks nice under the blazer or by itself.
A plain white shirt is another safe bet — you basically can’t go wrong as long as there aren’t huge stains on it.
