Oh dear. Time for our annual conversation about polite and appropriate office party attire. The holiday office party is a different animal from other holiday parties. The biggest social moreI can suggest you stick to is to steer away from too high, too tight, too short and too revealing. Heels over 4 inches are a bit too high. Skirts and dresses much above the knees are a bit too short. And cleavage is completely out of the question. I'd also add a "no pretentious jewelry" rule. No one likes a show-off in the office. Costume jewelry and understated real jewelry is the way to go.

Pile on the jewels!
