Whether you’re trying to pack for a weekend getaway, don’t have time to get out of your work clothes before going out for dinner or just want to get more mileage out of a favorite outfit — a few targeted accessories can take you from day to night in a flash!
I hit BCBGMAXAZRIA (Level 2) for some suggestions. Check out these quick day-to-night outfit makeovers!
Store Associate, Laura Cedrone, agreed to play some dress-up.
The first look dramatically changes as you take it from day to night. For a day look, Laura is wearing a trendy colorblock, power dress in navy and aqua topped with a cheery golden-yellow blazer and coordinating aqua, slingback platform pumps.
It’s amazing how much of an impact you can make by just removing the blazer and adding a statement, tribal mixed-metal necklace.
Now, here’s how you can take a casual day look and glam it up for night! This matte jersey dress in Tangerine Tango — THE COLOR OF 2012 — doesn’t wrinkle and is perfect to pack for a weekend away. The Grecian inspired draping creates a flattering silhouette. For a day look, the team at BCBGMAXAZRIA suggest adding a pair of Gladiator sandals to keep with the Grecian vibe along with some casual accessories.
For a night on the town, we replaced the daytime necklace with a python, embossed gold choker. Scroll down to the next picture to see the killer heels you can add to the mix.
Do you have any tips to share on dressing up or down a summer look?
