WHAT TO WEAR: Day To Night

For many of us who have a summer job or internship, we have to look nice and put-together everyday for work. This can be quite a task. Often it is hard to find balance between looking professional and showing off our creative sides. This can make it difficult to transition from work during the day to meeting up with friends or heading to date night after work.

This Fashionista is wearing a black leather jacket from Urban Outfitters and a flowing, blush/pink maxi dress. For jewelry, she is wearing a delicate, gold necklace with leaf-like details and simple stud earrings. She has added a pair of black leather ankle booties from Madewell to match her jacket. The color combination of black, any lighter shade of pink and gold goes well together, offering contrast between light and airy and tough and durable.

Additionally, this Fashionista is executing the styling rule of three. With this rule, a top and bottom (or a dress) are combined with a third element to make the outfit complete and visually interesting. This third element could be something like a belt or a jacket.

While this look is fashion forward and put together, not everyone can wear something like this from day to night. For those working in a more professional environment, try wearing a blush pink blazer over a black tank top made of higher-quality material. Tuck the tank top into a pair of skinny black pants. Add a pair of black leather booties, and wear simple gold jewelry that is pretty without being distracting.

One Simple Change: For those with more creative leeway in their work environments, a leather jacket might be difficult to wear just yet. Opt for a leather vest instead to combat the heat in style.
