WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

A student is rarely just a student these days. Most students spend their free time attending events, powering through internships and working on top of the usual studying and social gatherings. Having the perfect transitional day to night outfit (if not more than one) is absolutely crucial for surviving those days that are scheduled to the minute. Contrary to popular belief, this does not have to mean a little black dress or a uniform of black pants and a top. While either option can be fabulous, it is always good to mix things up and rock a fresh new look.

This Fashionista has incorporated the perfect balance of sexy and sophisticated. The piece that provides the most visual interest is her floral maxi skirt. The pleating and pattern add texture while the modest length allows you to get away with showing a little more skin elsewhere in the classiest way possible. This fabulous Fashionista is bringing the chambray trend back around with a twist. Instead of wearing her denim button-down traditionally, she opted for a lighter wash and tied up the front to show just the right amount of skin.

It is the laid back accessories that make this outfit perfect for day wear. The well-worn cowboy boots are both practical and stylish while her tan and caramel cross-body bag and gold initial bracelet add more touches of sophistication. All you need to do to carry this look from day to night is swap out a few crucial accessories.

One Simple Change: First, leave the boots and oversize jacket behind for the evening and slip on a pair of bold metallic heels like this pair from ASOS. Elevate your natural daytime look with a bold smokey eye and crown braids to complement your “little house on the prairie meets the concrete jungle” vibe. Layer on a bold statement necklace for some added edge and sparkle.
