Christmas is always a joyous event highly anticipated by many. There’re sumptuous brunches, dinner parties, turkeys for you to indulge in, and plenty of gifts. And exactly six days later, it’ll be New Years Eve, which is the perfect excuse to keep the champagne flowing as you count down to 2017.

With so many upcoming parties, there’s the all-important question of what to wear. And this gets a little more complicated when we’re heading to a festive gathering straight from the office — which means we have to find something that’s versatile for work and play. Perhaps the ladies have it slightly easier, with a whole arsenal of day-to-night party outfitsparty bags and stylish shoes (think Sarah Jessica Parker’s exclusive collection to Net-a-Porter — those metallic pumps are absolutely to die for) to choose from. But what about the men with careers? They can always play it safe and show up in a neatly pressed office shirt and trousers, but that isn’t exactly the most exciting option.

For our gentlemen friends who do not have the luxury of time to leave work early just for a quick change, we have put together five outfits that can easily take you from the office to your festive party.
