Lace, velvet, sequins and beads, these embellishments are what make our statement pieces perfect for dressing up the night. At first glance, these gorgeous dresses, gowns, and rompers may seem far too fancy for day, but paired with casual knits and accessories, they become jewelry all their own. If your late-night plans call for a bit of sparkle, but you won’t have time to change, try these tips for creating a transitional look to take you from a sunny afternoon, to a star-lit night.
This beaded romper seems like something that wouldn’t work for day, but worn beneath a boyfriend cardigan and paired with casual sneakers, it takes on a brand new life. I love how the the beads contrast against the texture of the cardigan.
When you’re ready to go out, trade the casual cardigan for a statement jacket and slip off your sneakers for ankle-wrap heels.
Every closet should have a white dress or two, they always look amazing and can easily be transformed depending on what you pair with them. Slip an oversized sweater over a lace body con to give the effect of wearing a skirt.
At night, add a dash of color with a blush-toned jacket, a pair of sleek open-toe heels polishes off the look.
