If you’re working or interning this summer, you will have faced the conundrum of finding something to wear that will transition from day to night. Gone are the school year days when you have plenty of time to go home in between class and a night out. Now, you must be ready for the office and the evening all at once. It can seem like a daunting task, but with a few key pieces, it can be done! This Fashionista takes some basics, and jazzes them up with fun accessories to make sure she’s perfectly dressed from morning through the end of the day.
Skirts can be tricky for the office. You have to be very conscious of length, for obvious reasons, and make sure that you’re not pushing the boundaries of what’s appropriate. There are no questions with this black circle skirt, however. The length is perfect, which is flattering and suitable for an office environment. I have a skirt like this myself and wear it to death, which shows that it’s a good investment piece. When you can wear it a million ways and it works for day and night, you know you have to buy it!
This Fashionista tops off her classic skirt with a fun sweater in a bright color. The golden yellow is a beautiful complement to her skin tone, and color is acceptable in a majority of work environments as long as the piece is suitable. This sweater is more than modest, with its relatively high neck and short sleeves; and it’s perfect for summer as it’s in a lightweight fabric. The color is precisely what makes it perfect for night, as well, because fun colors are always welcome at dinner or out for drinks.
My favorite part of this outfit is undoubtedly her pair of leopard loafers, because a touch of pizzazz like this adds so much personality to a look. Leopard print is always on-trend, but when in an accessory like a shoe, it’s subtle enough to be acceptable for a variety of environments. Another investment piece worth the money due to extreme versatility!
This Fashionista would have been the perfect model for the ALL IN THE DETAILS column. Her gold necklace, watch, headband, sunglasses and bright red lip all contribute to her overall look of being ready for work or play. The details do matter, so don’t forget them when planning outfits on mornings when you can’t seem to find the perfect multipurpose look. Follow this Fashionista, and you’re ready to go!
One Simple Change: This look goes from day to night, but if you’re dressing up for a special girl’s night out, you can jazz it up even more by swapping out the sweater for a beautiful embellished cami. You’re showing a little more skin, while keeping the fantastic details that make your look really stand out.
