While we don’t all get snow at the holidays, a flurry of parties is definitely on everyone’s weather report in December. 

Your office holiday party is a special occasion.

With so many companies tightening their “frivolity” belts these days, we’ll guess that your office party this year won’t veer into gala or black tie territory.

But please please please still take this shindig as the opportunity it is to dress up a little!

You’ve got at least a few fancy clothes in your closet. Now’s their time to shine!

First, we pulled some stylish inspiration from around the web to get our ‘holiday party outfit idea’ juices flowing:

SG Says: You want to show your co-workers the best version of you outside of the office. So, make an effort to dress a little special with your men’s office holiday party outfit. It’s totally worth it.

The trendy Gurkha trousers keep you from feeling like you’re coming right from the office, while the jaunty turtleneck says, First round at the after-party’s on me.

How your Gurkha pants should fit

Your festive look is sure to draw a few extra eyeballs, so make sure the tailoring is on point.

Aim for a tapered and relatively slim silhouette to ensure you’re wearing the pants, and not letting the pants wear you.

When it comes to men’s office holiday party outfits, you can’t go wrong with velvet dress pants. You just can’t!

Feel free to add a Santa hat to the ensemble, but don’t be the guy who gets blasted drunk wearing the Santa hat. We all know the difference, right?
