I’m often asked how you can easily take a day look to night, I feel you can easily achieve this by following three very easy steps. Two of the outfits in this post, are for the most part, my normal daywear to the office and then the last look, my leopard print dress which I’ve blogged recently about, is a versatile option and I’ve used the same tricks.
So here are my three (very easy) tips! And if you don’t own any of these items, then these are ‘gaps’ in your wardrobe you should shop for; they are investment items you can wear over and over again.
What you wear on your feet is the biggest giveaway to what you are doing – so wearing thick heels or a flat court shoe are not really ticking the “let’s go out and party” look. Play with colour, try a higher heel and keep the heel slimline. I really love these burgundy shoes from New Look, the straps alone oozes a more glammed-up vibe to any outfit – they work with dresses, skirts, jeans and as you can see a jumpsuit too.
ADD A LITTLE BLACK LACE
If your outfit allows you too, especially if you are wearing predominately black, a touch of black lace is one of the most easiest items to add. Full-length lace sleeves are simply divine and as you are all covered up too you can forget the need to fake tan, bonus! I purchased this top from M&S a couple of years ago at just £25 – I’ve not stopped wearing it as an option for evening, it travels well too so it’s a great first night out top wherever I am.
DON’T ACTUALLY WEAR YOUR EVENING JACKET
If you need to take a jacket out with you, and most of us do as it get very chilly of night even in summer, wear it but don’t wear it! I find that placing the jacket on your shoulders as a cape not only gives off a “going out” vibe but it’s actually quite a sexy look. There is also a fabulous practical tip here too, especially if you are wearing a top or dress that easily creases, by not actually wearing your jacket it minimises any creases to the sleeves or underarm where the jacket could scrunch the material.
One final point about jackets; there are day jackets and evening jackets and apart from the biker or a really sharp blazer not many transfer easily from day to night, so invest in one or two really great evening jackets, this way if you do wear something like a dress that you would normally wear daytime, an evening jacket can transform it so easily.
I hope you loved this tips, and if you have any yourself then please get in touch with me, I’m always keen to learn more tricks!
