How To: Elevate Any Dress From Day to Night
The weather is finally warming which means dress season has arrived! It’s time to show off those legs. We’ve got plenty of styles for your every summer activity, from sunrise to sunset. Here’s how to make the most of your summer dresses and elevate them from day to night wear.
Play with layers
We all know summer means heat (and generally fewer layers), but the reality is that many of us spend our days in chilly air conditioned offices. For the daytime, bring a versatile cardi or jean jacket with you to wear at work. Then, when 5 PM hits, ditch the extra layer for drinks on a sunny terrace and your look is ready to go.
Just add accessories!
Nothing elevates a great dress like some good accessories. Keep it sleek and simple for daytime, but add some glitz for the evening with a statement necklace and simple earrings, or vice versa. Swap out your flats for a pair of classic pumps and you’re ready for girl’s night.
So you’ve played with layers and added some sparkle –what next? Try a bold lip! Stash a day colour and a night colour in a wristlet that you can keep in your purse for the day, but doubles as a clutch for night. Sometimes a little lip colour change will take your look from AM to PM in a pinch.
