It’s always fab to look fresh and fierce all day long. Many think your daytime outfits should be sweet and innocent but when the sun goes down, you should go all out. However, with just some simple changes, an outfit can be taken from daytime cool to nighttime chic in seconds.
During the day, women in the District dress very conservatively and professionally. D.C. nightlife is when the claws come out, as I like to say. The ladies truly show their style by accessorizing and taking major risks. To bring an outfit from day to night, accessories and some high pumps are all you need!
This Fashionista rocks the perfect daytime look that can easily be transformed for a night out. The printed and light material of her shirt with the leather skirt brings texture and risk to the outfit. Leather is the perfect material to work with when dealing with day to night looks. It can be girly and sweet or hardcore and risqué depending on how you wear it. For the warmer seasons, day or night, leather skirts are a fabulous way to work the trend and stay cool! ASOS Full Skater Skirt in leather is great for day or night outfits because it poofs out and it’s fun, but still chic and dark for nightlife.
This Fashionista also wears her Dr.Marten-inspired patent leather boots. These are perfect for the daytime look because they add some more texture to the outfit, but they’re simple. Dr. Marten’s are huge right now and a definite must-have for the upcoming seasons because they add a little spunk to any look.
To make this the ultimate after-dark outfit, some 6-inch heels will do the trick! Sam Edelman’s Paulette in Dusty Gold would be the perfect shoe for this outfit. They add some shine to the look that contrasts the matte leather. Also, the extraordinary gold detail on the heel will catch anyone’s eye! Sam Edelman’s heels are incredibly comfortable, so you won’t be begging for Band-Aids at the end of the night!
Some statement pieces would look awesome with this Fashionista’s outfit and spice it up for nighttime as well. A chunky collar necklace would complete this outfit. Urban Outfitters’ Spiked Bib Necklace is gold and black to match the outfit and sits high to act as a collar on the printed shirt. Without making the look too busy, this necklace is the perfect statement to make the outfit fab and chic.
With just a few additions and subtractions, any look can easily go from day to night! Dark hues, combinations of textures and some fashionable accessories can transform any outfit to after-dark attire!
One Simple Change: This Fashionista’s look can even be great for a meeting with your professor or even an interview! Slick your hair back in a high sock bun and put on some bright red lipstick. You will instantly look fabulous and professional!
