Transitioning from Day to Night

December 15, 2014


During this time of year, there are work parties, friends and family and in town and the random events that pop up on the spur of the moment. These are all examples of the beauty of the holidays of course.

In order to help you make the transition from day to night, here are some tips that will help you through a couple of varying scenarios:

From Business Formal to Casual

During the day you are dressed up, most likely, in a suit with heels and need something casual for a night out. Of course, I'm a fan of the school of thought that you are better to be overdressed than underdressed. Yet, if you know you are in for a casual night of fun, keep this outfit in mind:

A sweater wrap with an Adea Layering Top, leggings and boots.

First off, leggings are a lightweight option to carry in your morning bag that don't take up much space. Since many of us are seeing snow or at least chillier temperatures, wearing boots into the office won't seem out of place. Underneath your blazer during the day, wear one of your Adea Layering Tops, such as the Long Sleeve Scoop Neck. When you are ready to go out, you can swap your blazer for the comfort of the wrap, or, depending on your workplace you may be able to wear the wrap during the day with a pair of heels.

From Business Casual to Date Night

During the day you can dress down and although you could dress up, for the workplace, you may want to stick to your normal work attire. One way to jazz up your everyday attire is to opt for small changes to your day wardrobe.

Here are some examples:

For your top, try pairing Adea's 3/4 Sleeve V Neck Layering Top or Long Sleeve Turtleneck under a Moto Jacket for a stylish and still polished yet not too casual look.

If you wear jeans to work, try a dark wash, which will help to bring your entire look together.

For your shoes, try a pair of chunky-heeled boots. These are often more comfortable than stiletto-heeled boots and will still be fun for your night out.


Don't forget Accessories. From scarves to costume jewelry, accessories can change the mood of nearly any outfit. Take the scarf pictured below as an example of how something that seems to trivial can actually make quite a change to your outfit, from adding a nice pop of color to drawing attention to your best features.

Overall, have fun with fashion and enjoy the remainder of the holiday season!

Wishing you all the best and see you in the New Year,
