WHAT TO WEAR: Day to Night

Finding the perfect outfit that can transcend all phases of the day is quite a feat. For most people, street style often calls to mind a more casual, laid back vibe: light cotton fabrics and denim often permeate daytime wardrobes. However when the sun dips behind the horizon and the nightlife starts calling, a complete change in tune becomes necessary. The relaxed look is no longer appropriate, and we opt for more sophisticated textures and darker tones. So what does it take to create a look so versatile that it can be worn both to class and out to dinner?

This Fashionista achieves this often elusive effect with her polished ensemble. Her outfit maintains the quintessential balance between finesse and simplicity. Experimenting with different patterns and textures, this Fashionista wears a black and white chevron print shirt and a sheer black skirt. The subtle striped detail of the skirt adds a nice compliment to the bold design of her blouse. Black tights paired with knee high boots create an element of flair. She bares the cold in a gray coat compete with a fur-lined hood, proving that the “bundled up” look can be anything but boring. The neutral colors of her outfit are easily transferable from day to night. Both classy and casual, this Fashionista is ready to take on any scenario no matter the hour.

One Simple Change: If you’re feeling a little more adventurous for a night out on the town, swap out a pair of boots or flats for a sleek pump. You can also try a bold lip to create a splash of color amidst the evening’s dark hues.
