It’s office party season, and whether you’re looking forward to it or not, you’ll need to find something to wear.
Instead of dragging out that old crusty LBD from ninteen-dickety-two, why not channel hit TV show Empire‘s leading lady Cookie Lyon and add some glamour (and a little ghetto-fabulousness) to the occasion?
1. Geometric Cookie
A statement dress is an office party go-to, and this one is hard to miss. Taraji P. Henson aka Cookie wears a black and white neo-graphic print dress by Charlie Jade, Christian Louboutin Glittered D’Orsay Pumps, and carries a Reed Krakoff Antalique Clutch to make an speech on behalf on Empire in Season 1: Episode 6.
2. Floral Cookie
Florals in Winter? Now that’s groundbreaking. Cookie wears an Alexander McQueen Floral Dress, Saint Laurent Platform Pumps, Jimmy Choo Fold over Clutch, Banana Republic Bangles, and a Banana Republic Bar Necklace as Andre goes to the hospital to recover in Season 1: Episode 10.
3. Moschino Cookie
You wanted ghetto fabulous, right? Cookie wears a Gold and denim Moschino jacket, Black Moschino skirt, Christian Louboutin Spiked Millacolu Sandals, and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings to visit Lucious in prison in Season 2: Episode 1.
4. Fendi Cookie
No one could ever accuse you of being inappropriately dressed in a blazer (especially if its Fendi). Cookie wears a Fendi jacket, Blue Wolford Tank Top, Fendi Pants, Fendi Purse, Alexis Bittar Earrings, Topshop Necklace, Kimberly McDonald Ring and Gianvito Rossi Shoes as she tries to start a small record label in Season 2: Episode 2.
5. Spotty Cookie
A see-through blouse might be the mix of professional and party that you’re looking for. Cookie wears a Dolce & Gabbana Blouse and skirt, Judith Leiber Purse, Dolce & Gabbana Earrings, Kenneth Jay Lane Ring and Dolce & Gabbana Heels to have dinner with her feuding family in Season 2: Episode 3.
