It’s hard enough putting together one outfit for the day – so what do you do when your agenda requires you to dress for multiple occasions in one twenty four hour period? Here are our tips to keep you looking fresh and stylish, no matter what life throws at you, day to night!
If you already have a capsule wardrobe, great. If you don’t, now is the perfect time to create one. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of “staple” items that you can mix and match in countless ways. Think your favourite pair of blue jeans, the classic black/white/grey tee, a blouse, a little black dress. These items should be able to be dressed up or dressed down, just by making a simple change. For example, you might be wearing trousers and a simple t-shirt with flats. Simply by adding heels and a blazer or leather jacket, your outfit goes from casual to a little more edgy, or formal. A little tip for creating your capsule wardrobe – when you are buying your pieces, try to picture them with a minimum of five different outfits using various other items you already own. If you can’t picture it working with anything else, don’t buy it.
Be Creative With Accessories
Keep statement jewellery in your bag and put it on to liven up a classic white shirt look. Sunglasses are another underrated accessory for nightwear – they may be associated with fun in the sun but that doesn’t mean they can’t be worn after hours. Tuck a pair of mirrored glasses into your top to add some instant metallic wow factor. If you’re daring enough, you can make like these celebs and unashamedly wear them in the dark of night.
After a long day at work, you probably don’t feel as fabulous as you did when you stepped into the office at 8am. To refresh your look (and make yourself feel 100 x better) carry a “touch-up” kit in your bag. This is not only perfect for going from day to night, but also from “chill day at the office” to “emergency meeting with client” or “unexpected lunch date”. Keep a collection of small, portable make-up – a lipstick, a concelear, a powder foundation, a bronzer/blush duo – a brush or comb to take care of any frizz, some loose bobby pins and of course, you can’t forget a deodorant and a perfume!
By getting smart with your style and playing around with fun accessories, transforming your look can be easy.
