Even though the work environment has become a lot more relaxed in the dress code department, the holiday season is still special. An easy way to add more panache to a basic skirt or pantsuit is with accessories. You don't want to look like you're on your way to the club with an outfit that bares it all, but on the other hand it's a party—not a funeral. Glam up your basic business wear with a nice set of jewelry, a shimmery top or chic scarf. Leave the flats home and step into a great pair of heels. If you normally wear your hair up, try wearing it down. If you wear it down most days, try a cute pin-up. You might want to kick up your make-up a notch or two as well. Try wearing a more vibrant lip color, or a lip gloss with sparkles or high shine.

Glamorous Beauty Ideas for Semi-Formal Events
For more formal or semi-formal events you can really pull out all the stops. Consider accessories that sparkle. Your wardrobe options are wide open for more upscale events. If you go for more revealing clothes make sure that you have the body to go with them. For both semi-formal and formal events your hair should have the perfect finish. Go for a defined style, such as and updo, soft curls or an ultra-sleek look. To bring a bit of excitement to your everyday look, consider adding one or two tracks of hair for instant highlights. Makeup is also important.
