The Cutest Dresses to Wear to a Christmas Party in 2022

Work Christmas Party Dresses

Office Christmas parties can be a bit more ambiguous when it comes to the level of formality.

Some work Christmas parties are more casual, and some can be on the fancier side, even black-tie events!

The one thing they all have in common is that office Christmas party dresses tend to be a bit more on the modest side.

Here, you’ll find a few different options for that office Christmas party.
