    So I've just received the invite to my office Christmas party.. and I'm dreading it already!

    It's at a casino so it's going to be a posh do, so it's going to be dresses galore - but I *hate* getting my legs out, I never ever show them.

    So I really don't know what to wear - does anyone have any advice?

    Wear a cocktail dress with opaque tights. They hide a multitude of sins.

    Yeah I agree, opaque tights are so in right now, it'd look fine if you wore them.

    Would a floor length dress be too much? There are some lovely ones around at the minute! I'm trying to decide whether to wear a floor length dress to my work Christmas party too, or go for a more typical cocktail length dress. If you go for a shorter dress, opaque tights (or even lace patterned ones with the right dress) would be nice!

    I was just going to ask the same thing! Do you think a maxi dress would be too overdressed? The only ones I've seen around seem to look more like ball dresses... if I could find a maxi dress that looks more 'party' than 'ball' then that would be perfect! I'm not sure whether such a dress exists though...

    I think a floor dress is too much to be honest.

    Why not a tulip dress? Usually just above your knees and whack on the tights.

    either something like this

    or
    http://www.monsoon.co.uk/invt/352189...es,maxidresses
    which aren't too dressy
    or this which is just gorgeous (although it might be a bit too dressy)
    http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...6851_690342_-1
    or just wear a knee length party dress with black opaque tights
    http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...6154_558155_-1 would look fine with black tights and high shoes (which will make your legs look long and slim anyway)
