People often ask me for tips on how to create an outfit that you can take from day to night. And while the task might sound daunting, it is actually a pretty simple thing to do. All you have to do is think layering and remember that in these instances a cardigan or blazer can be your best ally.
Take the below outfit, for example. I paired my neon skinnies back a crisp white off-the-shoulder tee (perfect for an evening on the town), but layered it with a conservative white blazer to go about my day. Two looks, one day. Pretty easy, right?
White Blazer: Forever21 (recent)
White Off-the-Shoulder Tee: H&M (old)
Neon Coral Skinnies: American Eagle (recent)
Neon Necklace: Forever21 (recent)
Bracelets: Tiffany, Macy’s, Forever21
Watch: Michael Kors via Macy’s
Neon Pink Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC
Nude Pumps: Steve Madden via the Overstock.com
J and I still love to go on dates, and due to our opposite schedules, I often find myself going straight from work to dinner or drinks. I run into the same issue when traveling for work, heading directly from the office to dinner with friends in whatever city I happen to be visiting. And because of these frequent situations, I find myself constantly having to create these types of looks. So with that said, the best words of wisdom I have to offer you when faced with creating a look you can take from day to night, is to really utilize those layering pieces in your closet. A blazer can be your best wardrobe friend. AND you can also bring a change of shoes and throw on some bright red lipstick to really up the ante for your evening look.
Hope everyone has a fabulous 4th!!!
