How To Create A Day To Night Look


by Maria



I’m sure you’ve all heard the term “you can dress it up or dress it down” before. This tends to be another way of saying you can wear this item for a day look or a night look. Pop on a pair of heels and all of sudden your outfit is telling a completely different story.

But before we get started, what exactly is a day and night look?

This is how dressed up you are. Think of it as running errands during the day and going out to a nice dinner at night. What you wear to both of these outings are going to differ. There’s a very high chance that your day look will be more casual, probably involving sneakers. While going out to dinner your night look will more than likely be a little fancier, be it nicer shoes or some extra jewellery.

We’re going to break this down by not changing your outfit, but simply modifying it to create a more night appropriate look.

Let’s assume you’re wearing a pair of jeans and a plain coloured top or sweater. During the day you probably have your favourite pair of sneakers on because they’re comfortable to walk around in and get everything done that you need to get done that day. Maybe you have your apple watch on to track your step progress throughout the day. This is a basic day outfit, but the question is how could this be dressed up?

Let’s start with the shoes. Changing out of your sneakers and putting on a pair of fancy flats or heels is going to instantly up your outfit, giving a more glamourous night feel. No matter what outfit you’re wearing, be it a dress or a pair of jeans and a top, changing the shoes will bring an entirely new feel to your outfit.

Next, we’ll tackle accessories. Accessories can truly make an outfit. Replacing your apple watch with an everyday clock face watch will give a more sophisticated look (unless you have some fancy fitness watch bands!)

Now let’s talk jewellery. Don’t be afraid to sparkle. Add some dangly earrings that may just hurt your ears if you wore them all day, but they’re perfect for a night out. Pop a few extra rings on your finger as well as your favourite bracelet that you forgot to put on before you rushed out the door earlier today. Find a necklace that goes perfectly with your outfit.

Don’t forget a cute clutch, Ditch your big work bad and change it out for something less bulky. Whether that’s a cute clutch or an over the shoulder bag, it’ll be much nicer than a tote bag full of snacks and receipts!

With night looks tend to come outerwear pieces as the weather cools down throughout the night. While you can throw a comfy sweater over the top of your top, a nice jacket is going to look much classier. A leather jacket thrown over your day outfit will instantly give you a more night ready look. Choose a jacket that matches your outfit, whether that’s a dark brown leather blazer or a classic denim jacket, we guarantee you’ll feel good when you look in the mirror.

Lastly, you can change your look without changing your original clothing for the ultimate day to night transformation. A classic night look is darkening your eye makeup and popping on a lipstick that makes you feel good. While you’re in the bathroom, why not curl your hair too?

Confidence comes from within, whether you wear makeup or not, do what makes you feel best. If you feel good, you’re going to look good.

Changing your outfit from day to night isn’t something you need to stress over. You don’t need to change into a little black dress every time you leave the house past 6 pm. Simply changing your shoes and reaching for the leather jacket instead of the sweater will more than likely do the trick and have you feeling bold and beautiful as you head out the door.

If you’re low on time and know you won’t have time to completely change your outfit, plan ahead and know what pieces you need to transform your outfit from day to night with little effort.
