With the winter holidays fast approaching, your corporate party calendar will soon be filled with soirée dates and details, and you will be faced with some important decisions on what to don.

With just a few basic suggestions, you can ensure that your party ensemble fits both the bill and your body. Use this guide to guarantee your holiday style looks merry, bright, and oh-so right.
