Rocking a versatile wardrobe that transitions easily from day to night involves more than a little black dress or two. Luckily, you don't have to spend a lot of money finding pieces that let you breeze out of work and into happy hour in the blink of an eye. With a whole world of colors, textures, and sparkles at your fingertips and a few key accessories-- you can take some of the pressure off your little black dress and have a day-to-night wardrobe that's the envy of fashionistas everywhere.
Once a Bridesmaid
You may have thought they'd never see the light of day again, but it's time to drag out those old bridesmaid dresses from storage and put them to good use. Pull out your dresses with sparkly, satiny, or vividly-colored fabrics. Next, grab some good scissors and cut those babies up! Those glitzy dress fabrics are the perfect material for infinity scarfs and head-wraps to highlight your look. Remember, the sewing machine is your friend!
When it comes to taking work wear into the evening, a little glitter can transform an outfit from day to night. So, channel your inner raccoon and search for a couple of inexpensive shiny, sparkly, and glittery belts or scarves. Small items such as these are perfect to stash in your purse or a desk drawer to throw on over a work dress or to glam up your trusty pair of jeans.
Top It Off
Blazers and vests are some of the most versatile wardrobe pieces. Top leggings or chic jeans with an over-sized vest for a casual daytime look, then trade it out for a tailored, sleek blazer and spiffy jewelry for a night out. Or use your favourite cardigan to tone down your favorite strapless dress during the day and voila- it comes off when you go out!
Quick Change Artist
If evening engagements suddenly pop onto your schedule, keep a few of these chic accessories and a pair of stylish boots or stilettos in your office to make a quick transformation. Pull on a blazer, add in a few sparkly layers, and slip into some bangin' shoes, and you'll be ready to face any evening engagement with flair. And all of your friends will be asking, “Did you wear that to work?!”
