You don’t have to revamp your entire work/school look for a nighttime celebration. With these nifty tricks, you can take your look from day to night.
Change your Outerwear
The first step to changing your look is trading your work blazer for a cooler, trendier outerwear. For a formal dinner, go for styles with flirtier elements, such as a pashmina, bejeweled cardigan or a cropped jacket. For casual night-outs, choose toned-down cover-ups, such as a long cardigan or a cute sweater.
Wear New Bottoms
Get the nocturnal chic look by trading your trousers/skirt for a cute pair of bottoms. Cut-off shorts or a mini skirt can transform you into the darling of the night. However, if you want a more polished look, choose jeans, joggers or printed leggings.
It’s Clutch Time
Since you are not going to need most of your work paraphernalia for a night out, leave your work bag behind. Instead, keep your party essentials in a cute clutch or mini bag. This change of accessory, even when done by itself, can revitalize your look right away.
Get Hooked on Heels
Pumps and flats might be comfortable for work, but you’re going to a party, right? For this occasion, it is but essential that you suffer for the sake of fashion with a cute pair of heels. Strappy sandals or tie-up ones can convert you from office chic to party princess.
Redo Your Make Up
Work make-up is oftentimes simple and muted. So if you are headed for a party, make sure to change your make-up. Use a vibrant eyeshadow color and a bright lipstick shade. A new make-up style will surely make you look party-ready – even if you are still in work clothes.
Let Down Your Hair
Another easy trick that can take your look from work to party is to change your hair do. Sometimes, all it takes is re-styling your hair into a chignon or a braided style. Sparkly hair accessories such as a bejeweled headband or a fascinator can overhaul your look as well.
Going to an after-work dinner? You don’t have to switch your entire wardrobe though. With these day-to-night fashion tips, you can be party ready with just a few tweaks and touches.
