As university students, we want the best of both worlds: a social life and good grades. However, when an evening class threatens to spill over into your nightlife, it can be tempting to skip class in favour of a night out. Who has the patience to bring a second outfit? Or who has the time to get home, showered, changed and made up, and back out again? Nobody. Thus, get some “fashspiration” from this Fashionista. She wore an outfit that was a perfect style transition from day-to-night.
This Fashionista’s knit and skater skirt combo gave her look a classic feminine silhouette that worked for both day and night. Slouchy knits are usually reserved for casual daytime looks. This Fashionista’s knit, though, definitely worked for night. This was because its subtle metallic threading gave it a more formal vibe.
Metallics make great transitional pieces, as they look glamorous any hour of the day. To help make your outfit move from day-to-night, try adding a bit of sparkle to your look with a shiny necklace or go all out with a reflective metallic skirt.
This Fashionista opted for a black skirt, which was a no-brainer piece for a day-to-night look. Black looks chic no matter how you wear it, and it’s one of those versatile shades that doesn’t look out of place whether it’s daytime or nighttime. Plus, her skirt length was modest enough to wear during the day, but was still a flirty length for going out at night.
If you plan to head to an event straight after school, know what bag will last you all day. I suggest toting around one that is big enough to hold your books, but small enough so you won’t get tired of carrying it for hours. Try a one-shoulder bag, like this Fashionista’s. You can swap shoulders, if it gets too tiresome on one side. Again, black is a classic choice. This Fashionista’s black leather bag was very classy.
Melbourne’s weather right now are super cold mornings, sunny and warm afternoons and very, very chilly evenings. This Fashionista came prepared by wearing a pair of tights, which weren’t too hot for the warm weather, but they were still able to keep her warm later in the day. Keep a pair of black tights in your bag–for emergency temperature drops.
Go for a comfortable pair of shoes because you’ll not only be in them all day, but all night, as well. Ankle boots are great because they give you height, are easy to walk in and look great paired with any kind of bottom. This Fashionista’s pair was great: a pair of chunky black boots. They were meant for walking and that’s just what they did–all day and all night!
One Simple Change: This Fashionista’s exact outfit, topped off with a hooded duffle coat, would be cute and cozy for a rainy day in Melbourne.
