How to Dress for A Business Dinner or a Company Party

Old etiquette: Your nine-to-five wear puts in some overtime.

New etiquette: Keep things professional (you’re still working) but in line with the event.

What to wear: When you’re dressing for a work function, the culture of your office should prevail. “If it’s a conservative environment, dress conservatively for events, too,” says fashion stylist Joseph Williamson. But no matter how relaxed your office environment or the occasion (that means you, company picnic!), never wear anything provocative. “A too-revealing outfit can prevent you from being taken seriously when it comes to job promotions,” warns Fox.
