I don’t know about you, but one of the biggest considerations I have when buying clothes and planning outfits is how well the pieces will go from day to night. As a busy professional with a very active social life, I find it absolutely essential to have go-to pieces in my closet.

Day-to-night outfits can be extremely challenging if you don’t know where to start. I used to bring an entire wardrobe change with me until I got so tired of lugging around all those extra clothes (sometimes even spare shoes!).

Finally I learned how to easily shift from a professional day look to a trendy, elevated night look without carrying my entire closet around! And you can too!

Having go-to day-to-night outfits and outfit ideas is the first step. Think about quality pieces that can easily transition from work to dinner, etc. In an ideal world, we would have an outfit that did it all, but making sure you have a foundation piece is a great start!

For example, a classic black dress, wrap dress, high-waisted pencil skirt, or pair of leather pants can be worn with a blazer and dressed up or down. Add the right jewelry if you really want to make this look pop. Think about fabrics and colors. A silver silk top, for example, can easily transition and be dressed up or down for a more casual look.
