From the Office to Christmas Drinks

In a Flash

It’s December, you’ve got plans all the way up to your eyeballs and you don’t have time to run home and make a quick outfit change first. You’ve been in the same suit since 8am, but you don’t want to rock up to the bar looking like a data scientist (even if you are one)!  So we’re laying out three ways to take your outfit from office to off-duty with a few quick changes!

1.A quick and easy way to transform an outfit is as simple as removing your suit jacket and letting your other layers shine! .

A zip neck jumper is smart yet understated and will surely keep you warm as it is made from a gorgeous, Italian, cotton wool blend.

Ditch the tie, and undo two shirt buttons!

2.Toned down, a suit can be worn anywhere! Switch your shirt out for a roll neck, which can easily be stored in your briefcase or desk drawer during the day and whipped out when it hits 5pm.

Fold your pocket square and neatly tuck it back into your breast pocket for a more subtle look.

Sneakers could add a more laidback feel if you’re just heading to casual drinks or opt for a pair of Double Monk’s which could also be worn to the office.

3.Waistcoats make for perfect layering pieces when it gets a bit colder, but they can also be the statement item of the whole look! Ditch the jacket and expose a classic clean-cut number or opt for a more patterned option for more of an impact.

Remove your tie, pop open two buttons and roll up your sleeves, your manager isn’t around anymore!

Lastly, it’s time to start loafing! Swap out your lace-ups for a pair of loafers to finish off the look. The exposed ankles make for a more easy-going look.
