Day to Night Look

I always struggle with a good day to night look. It's never been a massive issue for me before a few months ago, as I'd usually be home before going out, making it easier to get ready. But now with a job, it's all about wearing something work appropriate, that can transform to a cool night out look, without too much effort. I like to think this look nailed it.

I put on this outfit at 7am, before heading to work, then went to work, went to dinner after work, and partied till 3am (and got home at 4am). That's right, I was in this out for a whopping 20+ hours. It was definitely a fun night out and I loved how I lasted that long (then went to work the following morning - not my brightest idea).

All I needed to change was my lipstick colour. I was wearing a neutral, nudey brown shade all day, then switched to a much more fun red for the evening, and kept topping it up.

Particularly loved the colour of the top and how it stood out against the rest of the all black look. Zara, Warehouse and Mango have some amazing tops in at the moment, and I've been pairing them with all my million skinny jeans.

The star of this outfit was the heels. New favourites for sure. I am so impressed that they lasted 20+ hours, which involved public transport, a lot of walking and even more dancing - there was no pain while wearing them and no blisters the next day. I picked these up at the Most Wanted Swap Shop. They were actually brand new and completely unworn, and in my size (fate?), so I picked them up immediately and didn't let go. They're from Dorothy Perkins and I have to hand it to them for creating such a great night out shoe.

Fabulous look! Definitely great for day to night. I am the same, starting work soon so I'll probably have to get better at this.

Yepp, versatile look! :)

It's so great to find a shoe that you can wear day to night, most heels get too much after just a few hours, so I tend to wear ballet flats during the day, switch to heels and then back the the flats for the journey home. I often add a long necklace for the evening or switch to some jazzier earrings.

Finding a good day-to-night shoe is so satisfying. I love the colour of this top, so summery! x

This is a perfect day to night look for a casual office - I always struggled with day to night when I worked in an office because our dresscode was very formal... My secret? Blazers over above-the-knee dresses. All you have to do at the end of the day is take off your tights and jacket, and you're good to go!

Wow that must have been an amazing party 20+. I never lasted that long. You look gorgeous. Love the shoes and the cute bright top <3

I love the tank! The color is perfect for daytime; and adds the perfect playful pop come nightfall! :)

Rachel said...

Impressive you stayed in those heels for so long!

And I had a long Skype chat with Kathy yesterday; so gutted I was not out with you guys, it sounded like so much fun!

Ida said...

Love the top Sherin :)

I love the colour and cut of this top. For day to night I usually go for a black jersey dress.

Sherin, thank you for sharing these tips! Sometimes I have the same 'day-to-evening' dressing challenge and you are absolutely right that a lipstick can completely change the vibe of an outfit! Caterina
