This means that it might not be your most stylish outfit, but you can go all night long in it, drink as many G&Ts as you’d like and still feel appropriate talking to your boss.
A dress with sleeves fits the bill perfectly. This maternity lace dress from Asos has been a life saver for me already and I will be trotting it out for several more diplo events here in Mexico before the year is done. It is extremely flattering and as comfortable as a sweatshirt. Turns out stretchy lace is a pregnant lady’s best friend. I like this J.Crew option for the skinny-minis, especially since it would look great under a black blazer during the day.
I would up the festive factor for both of these dresses with sparkly but not-too-high heels - jimmy choo does this better than anyone else. A fresh manicure - either dark or holiday red - is necessary when you are walking around all night clutching a cocktail. Top it all off with some party earrings [my husband got me these 10 years ago when we were dating and I still wear them all the time - they are the perfect party earrings] and you are set!
Oh, and have a good time but stay away from the karaoke!
