Agreed I'm a very attractive man I purposefully look bad because I'd like to be noticed for something besides my body

...no? But if you feel uncomfortable enough to have to ask, you might not feel confident IN it, so maybe go with something that doesn't make you worry.

Remember your objective here, btw. Personally, I'd dress conservatively because I'd want to be noticed for something besides my body. There are better places for showing off my body tight dress than at a company event where it can be misinterpreted (unfair as it may seem to you).

Weird. Yes. Wear business formal. This is not a date or a red carpet event

Depends on your office, but I'd say yeah...full length gown is weird

Cocktail dress would be better

Depends on gender

Female here. Go cocktail unless dress code specified as formal or black tie. If the latter, full length ok but skin tight probably not best. You may not want your colleagues..remembering you that way. 😝

I've seen full-length dresses, but I'd recommend cocktail. I'd also recommend something not made of thick material (wool, sweater dress, velvet, etc.), as there will be a lot of people there, which can make the room really hot. I was at the CCG party last week! Which one are you going to, OP?

What’s the dress code? If formal, then it’s spot on. If business equivalent, go cocktail.

Yes

All the parties are sweaty hot in the room. (Lots of hot air, too.) 😜

We should have your picture with the dress!

There is a significant difference between looking bad and a skin tight dress. Making this about gender is idiotic.

OP: Depends what office...

Ok BAH holiday party is simple. Red suit jacket, black shirt, black or grey pants with nice heals. You will fit right in.

Ours is black tie optional, so lots of full length dresses. But you should ask around to people who have been to yours before to get a feel

You'll definitely stand out if you're talking about the BAH holiday party. I've seen a handful of women wear longer or tighter dresses over the years but they're not the norm. Conservative cocktail dresses will be the majority of what you see.

And yeah, the parties at the mayflower are packed beyond what I assume is legal and it gets HOT in there.

Just a quick vent: I applied for a job that I was excited & invited me to apply. i had the call with the recruiter. 1 of my first questions: what is the time to fill this role? response: honestly? Yesterday.
I thought I was a shoe in. I met with the hiring manager and then had an interview scheduled with the VP the following week since he was on vacation. 2 days before the interview the recruiter called after 5 to say they hired an internal candidate.
Why does it take 3 weeks to determine that?
