From Day to Night: How to Transition Your Outfit for Any Occasion
Finding appropriate outfits for day and night events can be challenging. Sometimes, there is limited time in the day, which calls for a versatile outfit capable of working for any occasion and at any time of the day or night. Ideally, you want a seamless transition that does not leave others aware of the fact that you’ve just gone from one event to another wearing the same thing. It’s a complicated mission, but it’s not impossible. Here’s how to transition your outfit for any occasion, from day to night.
Neutral Colors Are Your Best Friend
One of the many benefits of wearing neutral colors is that they have no limits and pair well with everything. The black pants you wear to the office can easily be worn to the club or happy hour.
It’s all about how you pair neutral colors that transition your day outfit to your night look. For example, at the office, perhaps you wear black pants with a heather gray sweater and womens flats. You can easily switch tops and shoes and have a brand-new look for a night out.
Ditch your office sweater for a sparkly top and a pair of teal pumps, and your black office pants now look like a thoughtful choice to complete your look.
Accessories Make All The Difference
Sometimes, there is no time to change between day and night events. In these cases, it’s best to use your accessories to change your outfit for you. Jackets, jewelry, and footwear can act as essential accessories that make all the difference to your day vs. your night looks.
Let’s say you wore a camisole and blazer combination for your top. If you exchange your blazer for a leather jacket, suddenly you have a night outfit just by changing jackets.
Workwear Is Versatile
Consider your workwear if you need an outfit that transitions easily from day to night. Today, most workwear is already versatile. The outfit you wear to work can also be worn to a formal event, or nice dinner out, etc.
Check to see if you’re wearing tailored fabric and if the colors are neutral. If you’ve got both going for you, you’re likely already wearing an outfit that will work from a day to night occasion.
Even if you’re on the fancy side, you’ll still look dressed for the part, and as long as the event is formal enough, you’ll blend right in.
Similarly, if you work in a casual setting, such as in childcare, the jeans and tees you wear can also work for casual get-togethers after work. It all depends on the event you’re transitioning from day to night.
Avoid Bold Colors
Stay aware of overly bold colors, as these are the most challenging to work with, regardless of whether you’re going for a day or night look. Matching bold colors with anything other than neutral for balance can be challenging. Unfortunately, bold colors may not look great for your day or night looks; it takes some strategic styling to make stand-out colors and patterns work with any outfit. To transition seamlessly from day to night, stick with muted tones.
Effortlessly Move From One Outfit To The Next
If you’re smart about your outfits, you can easily transition from day to night looks without much planning. Remember to keep bold colors at a minimum and get creative with the workwear you have in your wardrobe. Be sure to utilize your accessories and neutral colors to move effortlessly from one outfit to the next.
