4 Easy Tips to Create a Cute Day to Night Outfit

When it comes to creating a cute day to night outfit there are a few key things to keep in mind. Day outfits focus on keeping things casual, comfortable, and simple, while night outfits are all about adding in fun, glam, and sometimes even edgy style elements to really elevate the look. Here are 4 easy tips to help you create some super cute day to night outfits!

 

Day to Night Outfit Tip #1: Pick Your Core Piece

To create a cute day to night outfit, you of course need a core piece that you’ll be wearing with both looks. This can include things like a blouse or sweater, a dress, a fun printed pair of pants, or even something as simple as jeans. The key here is to choose an item that can easily transition from day to night by switching out other elements in your outfit.

For my day to night  outfit, I chose a hot pink leopard blouse because I knew it would look great dressed up or down.

 

Day to Night Outfit Tip #2: Swap Out Shoes

The easiest way to take your outfit from day to night is simply changing your shoes. Day outfits pair perfect with shoes that are easy to slip on and comfortable, while night outfits should be paired with more glamorous and girly shoes. Trust me, you’ll be amazed at how adding a pair of heels can instantly take you from a casual day look to sexy date night.

Day Outfit Shoes: Flats, sneakers, booties, and casual boots.

Night Outfit Shoes: Heels, dressy sandals, heeled boots/booties, and dressy flats.

 

Day to Night Outfit Tip #3: Add Accessories

Another great tip for creating an awesome day to night outfit is adding or switching out accessories. For daytime it’s all about simple and casual accessories that are perfect for on-the-go or wearing in the office, while night outfits call for more dressy, edgy pieces to make the look a bit more glam and flirty.

Day Outfit Accessories: Minimalist Jewelry, Scarves, Hats, Casual Jackets/Vests (Denim or Utility)

Night Outfit Accessories: Statement Necklaces/Earrings, Blazer, Waist Cinching Belt, Leather Jacket, Clutch, Hair Clips

 

Day to Night Outfit Tip #4: Switch Up Hair & Makeup

Last but certainly not least on this list of day to night outfit tips is switching up your hair and makeup. Going from day to night with your makeup is actually easier than you think and it’s all about adding to and enhancing your daytime look.

This might mean curling your hair when you wore it straight during the day, adding winged eyeliner or a touch of darker eyeshadow to the outer corners of your eyelid, or my personal favorite, switching up your lipstick from a day time nude to something a little more bold like red or pink. These small but important details will really help enhance and elevate your overall look.

This casual day outfit is cute + simple and perfect for on the go and running errands. This is something you can see me in on a weekly basis and I love that I can switch up this look even more by adding other items like a jean jacket or changing my shoes to a cute pair of booties.

The adorable and affordable pink leopard blouse makes the perfect transition piece for these day to night outfits, and I absolutely love the quality of it.

I’ve also been living in my Spanx faux leather leggings lately and honestly they’re the BEST splurge purchase I’ve ever made. These leggings are the REAL deal and I highly recommend if you’ve been on the fence with them. You will seriously wear them all the time and totally get your money’s worth.

For my night outfit, I chose to go with something a little more flirty, feminine, and fun! I absolutely LOVE this night outfit look for a date night and it’s super easy to create. Using the same pink leopard blouse from the day look, I simply tucked it into a cute black tulle mini skirt, and paired it with some black pumps to elongate the legs.

To make it a little more girly I also pinned my hair to the side with a darling pearl hair clip and chose more minimalistic jewelry pieces since I wanted the outfit to be the main star. I love how fun this night outfit is and I simply adore how the hot pink and black looks together.

  2. That tulle skirt really amps up the volume of your outfit! Who doesn’t love a good pop of color, am I right?! I can’t wait to see more looks from you in the future! I’m just itching to get into some spring style, but the weather won’t cooperate with me.

    You look gorgeous! Love that bright pink on you. You’re right that a simple swap of accessories can change a whole look – I’ve been having so much fun with hair clips/scarves lately. Also can’t go wrong with a bold lip color!

  4. You are just too cute. Love the whole thing! I went to kohl’s and the picture of the pink blouse looks less vibrant on the website than what you are photographing. Do you think that is true? Thanks! Super cute!! And one cannot have enough tulle skirts!!!

    • Thanks so much Sarah! It’s a pretty vibrant hot pink and I would say my photos are a pretty accurate depiction (I don’t use filters or anything, just the brightness). It also comes in a ton of other colors/patterns too if hot pink isn’t your thing. And totally – tulle skirts are just too cute!
