Can You Really Take an Outfit from Day to Night?

N is for Night

I always hear this question: how can I take an outfit from day to night? And, it makes me laugh. Who are all these people who have such a normal daytime life yet such a busy night life? I mean, really? I’m tired at night. My night time outfit involves yoga pants and sweatshirts, but I digress.

The question got me thinking…can you really take an outfit from day to night? I decided to give it a try.

For my daytime outfit, I chose a navy blue tee layered over a long sleeve gray tee {because it’s cold in Chicago}. I added a chunky knit scarf, skinnies, and my chuck taylors. And how about that hat? I couldn’t resist. It’s a perfect casual look for day.



To make this outfit work for night, I wanted to make as few changes as possible. Otherwise, it’s a whole new outfit. Am I right? So, I lost the hat and traded my chucks for a pair of heels. I also decided to switch out the chunky scarf for a statement necklace. This look works much better for a fun evening out. And if the temps ever warm up, I would lose the long sleeve layer as well. Even better.

I like both of these looks, and overall I think it works both ways.

What do you think? Can you really take an outfit from day to night?
