The top 5 items that can take your outfit from day to night in under 5 minutes

Ever have those days when you are out the door at 7am and know that you’ll be out all night? There’s always a big difficulty dressing for days like that, as there is a clear difference between a workday outfit and a glamorous nighttime look. Rest assured, if you know what to do, it’s very easy to transform your outfit from classic office chic to elegant evening allure. Here are 5 easy ways to take your outfit from day to night in an instant.

  1. Wear a simple shift dress in a classic color. Make sure the dress is the kind of material that won’t wrinkle—cotton, jersey etc. You can wear a fitted cardigan in the day and shrug it off at night to instantly take your outfit from casual to elegant.
  2. Carry a beautiful brooch in your purse to pin on your dress. You can find incredible glass and crystal pins nowadays, especially at vintage stores, and they add instant charm to any outfit.
  3. Stash some stunning, large, oversized earrings in your purse. You can throw these on in a moment and they’ll instantly make your outfit glamorous.
  4. Wear a pair of nude heels. The classic nude is perfect for day and night.
  5. Invest in an oversized embellished bag. It’s become very fashionable to tote a large embellished bag in the day, so you won’t have to worry about it being out of place. Whether it has a gorgeous crystal clasp, a sequin strap or metallic accents, embellishments work for both day and night. Plus, it’s a great roomy accessory for those times when you know you’ll be carrying around a whole day’s worth of items late into the night.
