How to: Transition from day to night

Not enough time to change from work/school before heading off to a trendy event?  I've had a few instances where I would end work at 5 and need to be somewhere by 6.  Add in travel time, and that's not a bunch of time to get ready.  I also have a pet peeve of changing in a washroom. The chance of my dress touching something in a cramped stall?  No thanks.

So instead of changing, I've been simply modifying my outfit from casual to classy with a few piece adjustments in seconds.

In the day: Blazers definitely help give a more professional look with its cut and coverage.  Likewise, a cardigan can make an outfit more casual, especially with colourful daytime tones.  Also, be minimalistic with accessories.  And make sure that your awesome heels are still work/school appropriate- classic pumps and wedges would suffice.

In the night:  Take away the daytime pieces, add on some bling, and you're ready for a night out on the town.  Extra touches of makeup (smokey eyes, red lips, etc.) are also going to make the night look.

One aspect that has me on the fence is what to do with your hair.  It's probably a personal preference thing since both hair up and hair down can be a casual and classy statement.  What's your opinion on this?

  1. These are really good, straight-forward tips for going day-to-night. I think a good way to transition hair would be a bun for work/school and take it down into waves for the evening :)

    By the way, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment :)

  4. Hmmm... Well, I have short hair, so I usually have to wear it down (or I will pin just one side back). I think hair looks pretty pulled back loosely for work in a loose, low ponytail or a pretty braid. xx

  6. Your blog is such a great read. I usually side braid my hair to the side, it's so quick and convenient for me.

    Blazer's are always a must for me!

  7. YES!! I hate changing! And then you have to worry about your clothes being all wrinkled. It's better to layer. I do this all the time
