So, I said I'd go. But what to wear? Informally dressed profession, think scrubs. Co-workers think anything other than scrubs is the way to go. Suggestions??? I'm a tall girl.

It's better to be overdressed than underdressed. Now, of course you're not going to show up in an evening gown, but you could certainly show up in a really nice dress or a pretty silk shirt and a skirt. Heels are good even if you are tall. Nothing wrong with being tall.

Thanks, I completely agree about the better over dressed than under part. Maybe a wrap dress and boots w/a patterned tight?

I just googled "office party" and got tons of 'what not to wear' hints. Not too short, not too much skin, not too much cleavage.

It would help to have an idea of your age? A 20 something can get away with a party dress a woman of 45 probably should not wear.....

I like both of these, not too much skin, not too flamboyant, but flattering. (click on thumnails to enlarge)

Hey there, and thanks Azoria. 30's-40's, but look younger, doesn't everyone say that?!!! But I do. Like to dress comfortably yet stylishly.

I would do nice black pants, dressy boots and a silk blouse or cashmere halter. Something unusual on top.

No, not a nurse, but medical. I too like the idea of something unusual. Looked at Anthropologie - 1st time. Liked what I saw. Thanks for the advice everyone!
