Have you ever found yourself running straight from work to a date night or an evening event? When you’re always busy and on the go, this can become the norm. Sometimes, planning and finding an entirely new outfit to change into at night just isn’t in the cards.
But, worry not! There’s no need to frantically search through your closet for a new look right before you head out the door. Choosing the right pieces for your wardrobe that can be easily dressed up or down will help you go from daytime casual to date night ready in no time!
Whether you’re on your way to a girl’s night or a nice dinner out, these stylish day to night looks will keep you on-trend with minimal effort. We’ve rounded up a few of the best staples to inspire your day to night outfits.
The LBD (Little Black Dress)
There’s nothing quite as versatile as a little black dress. This piece is definitely a must-have for every girl’s closet.
A good little black dress is a key foundation piece that can be used as an anchor for your day to night look. With just a few simple swaps and additions, you’ll be on your way to endless styling possibilities that will work for a variety of occasions.
A simple black dress works perfectly for a daytime look when styled with simple touches like some subtle jewelry and cute sandals. When you’re ready to trade this down-to-earth, practical look for a more dressy outfit, simply add a leather jacket, some heels or wedges and a pop of color with a handbag or a fun lipstick.
And just like that, you’re ready for date night! This look requires minimal styling effort and is effortlessly chic.
A Sweater with Faux Leather Leggings
Cute, casual and always a safe bet, the sweater and leggings combination is truly a classic. Wearing leather leggings is a great way to keep warm, but also makes it easy to transition a sweater from day to night.
For a relaxed daytime style, pair a baseball cap and sneakers with your staple pieces for a laid back vibe.
For the perfect date night outfit, ditch the sneakers and add some trendy boots or booties and a statement necklace that will finish off the look. This is a super quick and easy way to effortlessly take your look from work to play.
Since Spring and Summer are practically here, opt for a tunic type top with your leggings or a lightweight sweater.
A Spring Dress
With warmer days quickly approaching, floral, spring dresses are flirty and always fun to wear. But if you thought they only worked for the daytime, think again! Spring dresses are super versatile and can be quickly upgraded to a date night outfit with just a few small changes.
During the day, we like to wear our spring dresses with a simple sandal. Once night rolls around, simply add a pair of cute wedges and a cropped denim jacket to complete your look. You can even accessorize with a small clutch that will fit all of your essentials for your night out.
These quick swaps will easily take you from day to night without compromising comfort or style.
A Cute Blouse
A nice blouse is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Perfect for days at the office or a night out on the town, you can never go wrong with this pick.
Pairing a blouse with a nice pair of slacks, a pencil skirt and flats or pumps is a professional and chic workwear style for the daytime. For a stylish way to take this look from office meetings to date night with little effort, simply add some fun pieces of jewelry like earrings or bangles, your favorite pair of denim skinnies and some heels in a bright color.
This trendy look is sure to make a statement, wherever you’re headed.
