The rules for the perfect day to night outfits

(Picture from Pinterest) This post is for all career women and busy mothers who are always in a hurry and leave home early in the morning to manage a busy schedule and family commitments that would deserve more than one single outfit. They often cannot go back home to change the outfit and need some ideas to turn staple office wardrobe into casual or evening wear, to be always up to every occasion. Day to night outfits – those that will accompany us from dawn to dusk and even beyond – is what these kinds of women need. They are built around the versatile garments we all should have in the wardrobe. Those that are worth investing in because they match easily to create lots of new gorgeous looks.

In my closet, among the suitable clothes for day to night outfits, few pieces stand out with incredible potential. They always help me after a long workday that doesn’t end with a trip back home. But goes on with the meeting at children’s school or a romantic dinner with hubby or a coffee at the shopping mall with some friends. Day to night looks allow you to switch from the severe work look to party mode in a few simple steps.

And the result is so perfect that you cannot notice anything that reminds you of the business attire you’re still wearing, thanks to the right combinations and accessories.

Mixing and wearing suit separates are the tricks of the trade to transition your outfit from day to night.  Each piece of the suit – jacket, shirt, skirt or trousers – must be worn separately, with more informal garments for a result that is always impeccable and freer. At this point, you can take note, put the pieces I have listed below in your bag, which is always huge and heavy, according to a male point of view. And remember to pick up your cosmetic bag too!

The little black dress

I have more than one LBD in my closet. When the days get colder, the little black dress combined with the elegant jacket becomes a terrific uniform for the office. After 6 pm, match it with the motorbike jacket or the faux fur coat, add heeled shoes or sandals, enrich your outfit with bling jewellery and a clutch bag.

The elegant jacket

Do you want to create an outfit that is a bit aggressive? Go for a unique skirt, add a belt over the formal jacket and complete the look with heels. What do you think?

The office skirt and trousers

Metallic-effect, lurex, sequins, shiny fabrics: these are the right ingredients for the top to wear with the office skirt or trousers, high heels and a positive attitude towards having fun and unplugging from everything.

The white silk shirt

Replace the elegant pants with your beloved jeans, add colourful sneakers or heels, keep the formal jacket for the cooler evenings, and you will be perfect for shopping or a happy hour in downtown with friends.

The twin set, yes to the top no to the cardi

Replace the cardigan with a leather or a vegan leather jacket, keep the top and elevate it with a statement necklace. Add shoes and sandals with heels, go for styles with shiny and metal details that recall the glow of your jewellery in gold or silver.

See you soon, dear readers, be more and more sustainable reusing your clothes in a myriad of new outfits and above all, have fun with fashion!
