The Extra Mile
Can you wear sequins to your office holiday party and still be taken seriously? ABSOLUTELY!
Trying to navigate the space between festive and professionally acceptable can seem a bit tricky. It’s an after work hours party, so maybe the same Monday-Friday rules don’t apply? But the person you’re hoping to get a raise from will also be there. What’s a girl to do? Cover yourself in sequins from head to toe…that’s what!
What about New Year’s Eve? Can I wear sequins and not have people expect me to drop at midnight? YOU BET!
I shopped Orchard Mile’s holiday collection to find the perfect holiday outfit. Their site is one of the chicest shopping destinations on the web and it was super easy to find a look that’s sure to impress coworkers, C-Suite members, and party goers alike!

Orchard Mile carries some of the most sought after designers of every price point and when it comes to selective curation, no one does it better. There were so many great items to choose from that picking just one office party outfit was the hardest part of my job.
One of the really neat things about Orchard Mile is that you can shop directly from each designer all in one place. That means you basically get to curate your own shopping experience from all of your favorite places and really be your own fashion editor. No more hopping from site to site. You can shop full collections in one destination!
Ultimately, I chose a sequin jumpsuit from Rachel Zoe and paired it with a matching blazer of the same designer and style. Both pieces are so luxe and stopped me mid-scroll! I knew I had to have them both.
I love the relaxed fit of the both the blazer and the jumpsuit. It keeps with the high end feel and keeps things office appropriate. Not to mention, leaves plenty of room for dancing and your favorite holiday dishes.
I have to be honest, there were a ton of other pieces from Orchard Mile that I haven’t been able to get my mind off—like this velvet maxi skirt—and I can’t promise I won’t end up owning them all. In the meantime, you should head over and take a look for yourself. I’m sure you have a ton of holiday and office parties to attend in the coming days and with New Year’s Eve right around the corner, you’re going to need something great to wear!
