WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

With the spring semester in full swing, packed with upcoming projects and midterms, on top of work, dates or other events to tend to after class, we don’t always have the time to change into an entirely different outfit (especially when things come up unplanned!). Fear not, because the Fashionista I spotted this week wears the perfect outfit for a day to night look.

Keeping it simple and chic, this Fashionista opts for warm color pieces and thin layers. Her maroon top was reminiscent of Valentino’s spring 2015 couture show, which showcased a number of beautiful and elegant maroon colored pieces, like this one. Wearing thin layers when you know you’re going to be in a heat-blasted lecture hall for two hours or more can save you from feeling too hot in your chunky knits. This Fashionista wears a vegan leather-sleeved jacket to keep her warm enough for the weather outside, while giving her look an extra touch of edge. Whether real or faux, this leather jacket fits right into any occasion, from 9:00 a.m. lectures to dinner dates. It is a piece that will keep you perfectly temperate and looking stylish from day to night. Score!

Her dark wash denim brings a downtown vibe to her trendy jacket, while also adding simple pieces like black flats and a darling Marc By Marc Jacobs cross-body bag. Cross-body bags are perfect for going to school, and also ideal for a night out when you want to be hands-free. She keeps her look pristine by adding a gold statement necklace, creating a focal point that instantly heightens her embellished look.

This stylish outfit is simple enough for daywear, with just enough pizzazz for any type of nighttime events, such as a date night or a low-key dinner with your posse.

One Simple Change: Opt for a pair of your most reliable riding boots if the weather suddenly changes. Make sure it is weatherproof to combat the rain or the snow!
