For me, I try to get as much wear out of an outfit as possible, so transitioning a look from day to date night is definitely something I look for when getting dressed (because you never know when your husband will surprise you with an impromptu date night, right?). Now, in reality this dress kind of does it all, it's great for day and even better for night with the ladylike details with just a touch of sex appeal. So making the transition to date ready is practically effortless with the addition of a great accessory (I'm always a necklace kind of girl) and a smokey eye or a bold lip.
I obviously started with some pretty basic fundamentals like Maidenform's Shortie Slimmer for piece of mind. Because, let's be real the dress is on a little the short side and flashing just about everyone and their mother while trekking up and down the stairs for the subway is not my idea of a good time. Now, aside from keeping things slim, they're ridiculously comfortable (and surprisingly weightless) so wearing them all day into night is probably the easiest part about this outfit - no change needed. I've been a Maidenform (bra) gal for years so this addition paired with with my Comfort Devotion Multi Way Bra is kind of a match made in heaven.
When evening comes I finish things off by adding a pop of metallic with the necklace and bold lip to push things towards date ready. And, with the addition of a shoe change I'm ready to go. Of course, Summer nights occasionally call for a topper so I grab something to with a little edge, like my leather moto jacket to toughen up my otherwise feminine ensemble.
My Day To Date Night transition tips:
*A Statement Accessory (Earrings or Necklace)
*Makeup Additions: Bold Lip or Smokey Eye
*Ditch the tote for a clutch (or more dressed up bag)
*Lose or gain a layer, toss your cardigan aside and bare your shoulders or throw on something with a tiny bit more edge on cooler nights.
*Great (dare I say, sexy) heels.
What's your favorite way to take your look from Day to Date Night?
