How To: Take Your Attire From Day to Night

A Blissful Belle can mean a busy belle. Too often the whole day is spent running around, and before you know it, you have a measly twenty minutes to find something to wear out to dinner or for drinks. Panicking? No need! Take my advice and that outfit you threw on early in the day will be nighttime worthy in no time.

The simplicity of heels. It may sound too simple, but occasionally all it takes is a pair of heels to dazzle up an outfit. Whether you left the house in high-waisted shorts, jeans, or a casual dress, heels are your ticket to nighttime fashion. Not only will the outfit automatically look dressier, but stilettos are guaranteed to make your bum look equally as fantastic!

Working girl chic. The businesswoman look is a fall fashion trend must. Make the blazer your new best friend for a night out. Pairing a blazer with a more casual outfit will not only give the illusion of “just leaving work” but the staple item will add the right amount of sophistication and maturity to a simple cotton dress or even jean shorts. Don’t be afraid to work it!

Access some accessories. A chunky bracelet, dangling earrings, or bold belt can take any piece of clothing from bland to glamorous. This is the perfect opportunity to overindulge! Pair the plain V-neck tee and jeans you wore to class with a sparkle accented scarf and a pair of chandelier earrings and your friends won’t even recognize the outfit repeat. With a simple daytime outfit, the accessories can be layered for a classy, not tacky, look.

Embrace your darker side. Although there are exceptions to every rule, typically bright colors and light pastels scream afternoon get-up. If you walked out of the house in a pale yellow mini dress, there’s still hope! Layer on dark items to counter the daytime color. Whether this is a black oversized cardigan, chocolate brown jacket, or dark faux fur vest, the contrast will cause wonders.

Each of these tips can be used individually or combined for an ideal outfit out on the town. Your roommates will be shocked as you casually saunter in the house ten minutes before the cab arrives, and appear on time looking more stylish then ever!
