Day to Night Styling

Hey, everyone!  Today’s post will touch on how to use accessories to take a dress from day to night.  The dress I’m wearing is the Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress from Leith.  I was looking for a dress for a specific event that I could dress up or down, and my beautiful friend Christina told me about this one *love you, Chrissy!*.

When looking for a dress you can take from day to night with a few accessory changes, I usually look for one that is a bit on the simple side.   Choosing the right jacket, jewelry, and shoes is what takes your look from casual to glam and back again.  For day, I have worn this dress with a denim jacket or vest, fun/bright necklace, and sandals or my white Chuck Taylors.  For night, I pair it with a statement necklace, XOXO jacket/blazer (purchased last year, here it is if you’re curious), and heels!

If you’re looking for statement jewelry, I have lots of luck at Francesca’s, Nordstrom Rack, and Target.

Again, same dress, just using different accessories for a completely different look!  Have fun; experiment and see what you like best.

Wardrobe Essential: Little Black Dress

Every girl needs a Little Black Dress (LBD) in her closet.  I love them because they are timeless, and can be easily dressed up or down.  You can wear a LBD to many different events such as date night, interviews, and holiday parties.  You don’t have to break the bank, either!  I have found LBDs for well under $20 at both T.J. Maxx and the clearance rack at Banana Republic.

There’s a LBD for every occasion and to flatter every body shape!

Please let me know if you have questions about anything I’m wearing. Thank you so much for reading! Be sure to follow me or subscribe via email for upcoming fashion posts.  You can check out my Fall Lookbook here, cooler weather is just around the corner ❤

P.S. If you missed it, this is the same dress: daytonight

My next fashion post will show how I accessorize to take an outfit (like a LBD) from day to night.   See you all soon!
