How to style an outfit: Day to Night

We are busy people with busy lives and sometimes we have to make an outfit work for our day time activities have it see us right through until a more formal evening setting. When styling an outfit for both day and night there are a few things you can do, and few pieces you can change if you have time, to turn around a day outfit to an evening outfit in super quick time. Here is a great way to plan a chic outfit that you can quickly update and get back out the door for your important evening plans, with minimal fuss.


Rock a plain tee for a casual day to night style

A plain t-shirt is a great wardrobe staple and can look great when it comes to both day and night time events. Despite T-shirts being viewed as largely a low key wardrobe item, with the right outfit and accessories this simple top can be turned into a great chic evening outfit as well. Team it with a great blazer, good shoes and accessorize accordingly and you will have a killer outfit. This looks great left loose and untucked during the day and tucked into a great pair of jeans at night.


A great pair of skinny jeans are a wardrobe must-have

Skinny jeans are a great wardrobe staple. They work on lazy summer days, rolled up on the beach and create elegant lines when out for cocktails. Whatever the occasion a pair of great skinny jeans is a must in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Either a dark blue wash or even black jeans work great between day and night time events.


Add a tailored blazer to finish off an outfit and bring in some elegance

A boyfriend blazer with the sleeves rolled up really brings to life the more casual nature of the day time look, or even work a plaid shirt, again with the sleeves rolled up looks great, if a jacket is too heavy. If you have time, add a tailored blazer or jacket to your outfit to help turn your day time outfit into one fit for cocktails or dinner with friends.


You shoes will make or break your outfit

For a day look style your outfit with a cute pair of feminine pumps or a pair of canvas trainers which will keep you comfortable as well as helping in dressing down your entire outfit. For the evening add a pair of heels or even a pair of trendy wedges in the spring and summer months. These will help to dress up your outfit and create a clear distinction between your day and night time look.


Accessorizing will bring your evening outfit to life

During the day you will want to play it understated in your accessories while jazzing up your accessories for the evening to distinguish between day and night. In the day choose simple stud earrings, soft accessories and even a casual light scarf on cooler days. Pair your day time outfit with loose beachy waves and a fedora hat for a casual look. In the evening pin back your curls for a more structured, but effortless, evening look. Add a bold necklace, statement earrings, stacked bracelets and a statement ring.

During the day team your look with a slouch handbag or a relaxed across body bag while in the evening add an elegant clutch.
