A full day under the sun (Mother Nature’s much appreciated gift) eats up time, which may leave you scrambling to get ready for a night out. Who wants to go inside when rare, warm rays are embracing campus? A simple solution to save time getting ready at night: wear a transitional outfit.
I spotted this Fashionista walking to lunch with a friend post-class. Her look encompasses casual, polished and laidback making it an ideal transitional outfit. Cropped skinny pants are a staple item in any Fashionista’s closet due to its versatility. They can be dressed up for an interview or dressed down for a day of classes. This Fashionista pairs hers with a pastel watercolor, floral print top — a perfect complement to the day. She layers a soft, charcoal gray jacket over top to beat the breeze, creating a contrast with her pants. When the sun goes down, she can replace the jacket with a more structured blazer to dress up her look, or she can sport bare shoulders. Her sock bun is a great transitional hairstyle that’s appropriate under the sun or under the moon. During the day, her layered necklace gives off a boho vibe that goes with the casual look. At night, she can upgrade to a statement necklace to give her outfit an added punch. As for the shoes and bag, she can switch the glamorous backpack for a cute clutch and either keep the flats or rock a pair of heels. This Fashionista won’t have to sacrifice sun time in order to get ready for the night.
When creating a day to night look, seek pieces that can fit in both casual and more formal settings. Cropped pants, maxi skirts/dresses and sundresses are great seasonal picks that are easy to pull off. Keep your makeup simple during the day so you can add a little definition to the eyes or lips at night. As for you Fashionistos, button-ups are always a great option. Looking great all day and all night long — challenge accepted.
One Simple Change: Switch the gray jacket for a blazer and replace the backpack with a structured bag or tote for an interview-appropriate look.
