Friday nights are for happy hour, date nights, and dancing, am I right? Unfortunately, they’re usually also for working LOL. But seriously, who has the time in the mornings to pack an extra outfit for the evening?! I know unless I’m really on top of my sh!t the night before, I definitely don’t have time. That’s why I love an outfit that’s appropriate for work AND night out ready. Hence, this easy day to night look!

How to Keep it Easy
The best outfits are those that are versatile. Let’s be honest, our time is precious and no one wants to spend it trying to figure out what to wear twice in one day. Hell, I don’t even want to have to worry about it once #LazyBloggerProblems. Here are my top 3 tips on how to put together an easy day to night look:
- It’s all in the fit. But really tho, fit is key! I’ve found as long as my outfit has more of that evening (*coughsexycough*) fit, it doesn’t matter if it’s a little longer or has sleeves, I can wear it to work AND out that night. This dress from Banana Republic is great because it’s comfortable, fitted, and work appropriate. However, with that more tight evening fit, I definitely feel dressed up wearing this straight from the work day to date night 🙂
- Spice it up with leather. I don’t know what it is, but throwing on a leather jacket just makes me feel like a total sexy badass. It’s also great if you want to tone down a more classic dress. I personally love how this outfit looks – the classic cut and fit of the dress is perfect for work and sexy. But adding a leather moto jacket for the evening dresses it down and makes it more laid back.
- Accessorize! OK, I’m the worst at this. I hate wasting time figuring out what jewelry to wear (I usually opt for something simple). What I’ve learned though, is to do just that – keep it simple! All I’m wearing here is a white and grey marble necklace (cause it matches LOL). Adding one statement piece like this makes it easy for me, but also elevates my look.
Day to Night Look
This outfit is one of my favs for an easy day to night look. I feel sexy in this dress, even though it’s more conservative. Add in the leather jacket, and I’ve got a perfect girl’s night out look! I also think the white pumps are great for work, and add an edgy vibe with the funky block heel. You can shop these pieces, as well as some of my other fav day to night items below!
