Sometimes it can be a puzzle figuring out what to wear for the times when you have to stay out from morning to evening. A perfect day-to-night outfit has got to be one that you can easily go from looking casual to semi-formal. It’ll be even better if it can help you adjust to the temperature change from day to night. The missing piece to this puzzle? A lightweight blazer.
This Fashionista’s outfit serves as a fantastic example for a day-to-night outfit. Her white tank is tucked into a pair of loose-fitting distressed jeans. Don’t be afraid of wearing jeans during the summer. Make them summer appropriate by simply cuffing the bottoms. Have them slightly above your ankles to achieve a cropped length similar to this Fashionista’s pair. J.Crew models also rocked the look in their photo shoot for the spring 2013 collection. This will give off a very laid back aura perfect for any regular daytime activity. Choose comfortable clothing for the daytime. Tight-fitting pieces can make the summer heat extra unbearable. Leave room for some breeze. Your body will thank you for it.
Now for the transition pieces, pick simple items that are lightweight enough for you to carry around all day. Experiment with what this Fashionista chose and try a thin boyfriend blazer. It will alter the casual look into a more formal one and it will also keep you warm from the chilly nighttime breezes. Imitate hers and consider a crisp white color. White is the new black for summer and it is trending all over runways. Two white-color trends that this Fashionista sported were white on white and white on denim. It has been spotted with denim in DKNY’s spring 2013 collection and it has been layered with white in Tommy Hilfiger’s and Rebecca Taylor’s spring 2013 collection.
Lastly, for some final touches, look into accessorizing the outfit with a statement necklace. It will instantly glam up the whole ensemble. As for the smaller details, choose a slightly heeled sandal like this Fashionista did. That little bit of a heel will help with the transition into your nighttime outfit. Also, notice how there is an all-around gold metal detail on the heels. That is a clever way to subtly add edge into an outfit. She matches this gold detailing with a gold watch and a pair of gold-rimmed aviator sunglasses. Metal hardware detailing will inevitably amp up any outfit, so try it.
With simple and clever transition pieces, you’ll never have to worry about your day-to-night outfits. Good luck!
