We’ve all had those moments when we’ve looked in our closets and thought, uuuuugh!!! I have nothing to wear!!! We’ve all gotten that last minute invite to dinner, or a party, and barely had time to slap on a coat of lipstick, let alone pick out an entire outfit before leaving; and we all enjoy making good use of our favourite pieces, because, who doesn’t enjoy getting a little bang for their buck, am I right!?
One of the best ways to maximize your wardrobe and always have a cute last minute outfit ready to go, is by knowing how to accessorize your dresses to take them from day to night effortlessly!
So, I picked out three of my faves from Penningtons and styled them each in a daytime and an evening look, because when it comes to having great style, versatility is the name of the game!
DAY – LOOK 1
I started with this pretty, tropical print dress and paired it with a delightfully unexpected mesh tee overtop. Add some vibrant pink sandals to top this lively work or brunch-ready look off to perfection!
NIGHT – LOOK 1
After the sun sets, simply lose the mesh tee and pink sandals, and instead go with these sexy, strappy wedges, a fab necklace & earrings, and tie the whole look together with a great, black belt, and you’re ready for date night!
DAY – LOOK 2
Next up is this stunning tie dye maxi! It’s soft fabric makes for a comfortable, relaxed daytime feel. Paired with a cute denim jacket, some embellished sandals, and a cool pair of aviator shades, you’ve got an awesome casual look, ideal for a day out and about around the city!
NIGHT – LOOK 2
When all your errands are through and it’s time to head out that evening, leave the jacket at home and show off a twinkling, embellished neckline, and those fabulous curves! Put on your favourite pair of heeled sandals, stack on some shiny bracelets, a sparkly ring, and some big, dangly earrings to really amp up the glam factor!
DAY – LOOK 3
Finally, this gorgeous little white number, with lace detail! All you need to make this look shine brighter than the afternoon sun, is a pop of colour from a cute slip on sandal, a matching scarf, twisted up on your head, and some gold hoop earrings, for a flirty retro look!
NIGHT – LOOK 3
Once daytime turns to night, let your hair down, and drape this elegant-meets-edgy, white mesh cardigan over your shoulders, and pair with a white & gold statement necklace, and nude strappy sandals for a classic, monochromatic look that absolutely radiates sophistication!
So, whether you’re looking to breathe some new life into your wardrobe, in search of ways to get your money’s worth out of your closet, or (like me) always seem to get caught off guard by an invite (even when they swear they told you a month ago, and you know they’re probably right, but you still vow they didn’t anyway), a few great dresses, some awesome accessories, and a little creativity are all you ever need!!!
