WHAT TO WEAR: Day to Night

One of the many beauties of summer is spending an entire day out enjoying the city. The warm mornings at brunch lead to windy nights at your favorite dinner spot. Even if your day isn’t all about the food, sometimes we’re too busy enjoying the day to change into an nighttime look. This Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect day to night look that is as easy as the summer breeze.

The key piece is this basic black maxi dress. The simpler the cut, the better this dress is for a low-key casual look. Maxi dresses can seem overwhelming with the large prints and loud colors, but the neutral colors of this look ground the outfit. With myriad cuts and fabrics, you’ll be sure to find a dress that fits your vibe. Adding a brown leather jacket will keep you warm inside any locale you’ll hit up, day or night. The trick is to choose a lighter leather that will keep you from overheating. Balance the neutrals in this look with a pair of brown leather sandals and a carryall shoulder bag.

Elevate the drama of your look by adding more jewelry! A chunky, statement gold necklace or numerous rings will make your look shine while keeping it casual. For a more boho edge to your outfit, stack your favorite dainty necklaces. Lose the jacket if the weather permits to show off the dress’s details.

One Simple Change: Heading somewhere fancier for the night? Switch your sandals for strappy heels and the shoulder bag for a satchel to carry your essentials for a great night out. Go out and explore the world like the rad Fashionista you are!
