WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

What to Wear

With this never-ending cold weather, everyone’s outfits on campus seem to be getting extremely repetitive. A cute, thinner sweater and a pair of leggings are spotted on almost every girl in East Lansing. I can’t deny, it has been the perfect outfit to have as a go-to in this odd winter to spring transition. Since there is absolutely nothing wrong with a staple outfit for each season, I loved spotting this Fashionista who made this look her own, for both day and night.

Her first stop was adding a great pastel pattern to her sweater. Both the colors and the florals define spring, and add some brightness to her look. Paired with a striped tank top, the clash of patterns follows a huge trend right now. I couldn’t help but have it catch my eye. Perfect for a day at class, her top is the perfect amount of comfortable. Headed right out after a busy day at class and work? Her look easily transforms in many ways. Tie her sweater around her waist for some added texture or switch her tank for an embellished button-down to add a more elegant edge. Another quick addition is throwing on a colorful chunky necklace to dress up her look and keep the pattern clash alive.

Her second piece was a killer pair of knit leggings. Her all-black striped pants were a great way to spice up the normal leggings style. Into a little more shine for your day to night looks? Disco pants are another alternative that are always fabulous.

Third and finally, while this Fashionista chose more weather appropriate shoes for her day look, her look quickly transforms with a change. Throwing a leopard pair of flats into your purse allows you to switch your footwear on your walk from your internship to a dinner with friends without missing a step.

With long days, nights out and funky weather, day to night options are increasingly hard to find. This style maven paired patterns to amp up a staple spring look. With a few extra accessories added on, her perfect class look changes to the perfect party look in seconds!

One Simple Change: Since day parties are huge for the upcoming holidays, keep this Fashionista’s look in mind. Pair her sweater and some flats with a pastel maxi dress, and you’re party ready for Easter or Mother’s Day.
