Hey Fash loves!
So how many of you have very busy schedules? So busy that sometimes you don't even have enough time to go back home and actually rest and/or change before heading out for a night out on the town. If you find this happening more frequently then usual then this post is for you! Today I'll be showing you all how I transform my look and a give a few tips that can be used to go from casual to night time fabulous in 10 minutes!
When it comes to being casual, comfort is definitely the key (at least it is for me!). During the day I am typically running errands, hanging out with friends, or heading to classes. Because of I this I can always be caught in either flats, sandals, or sneakers. If you know that you may be heading out to event at night and will have absolutely no time to change be sure to choose basic pieces that can easily be dressed up. As you can see I wore this simple black oversized top and one of my favorite pair of shorts. Although I am showing skin I chose the top because it goes pretty far down in the back so I could be covered up there. I didn't want to carry a big bag so my small gray leatherette bag worked perfectly!
For my face I opted for a fresh face as well. I only have on foundation with a bit of highlight and contour. I knew I would be dressing up at night so I saved the lipstick for the occasion.
Here is my fab night version of the look. I firmly believe in the third piece rule when it comes to putting together my looks and is a perfect addition when dressing for a night out.
Third piece rule: Having 3 pieces in your look besides your shoes. The top and bottom are the first two and the third piece is an extra outfit element such as a jacket, blazer, sweater, vest or statement accessory(as stated by whowhatwear.com)
Adding a third piece demonstrates that there was effort put into your look and adds an interesting factor as well. I chose a motorcycle jacket because I wanted to be edgy (who doesn't love edgy from time to time). I knew I wanted to keep my look all black so I decided to wear my fave single strap sandals which keeps the look minimal. To add a final touch I added my signature red lip and silver choker necklace.
To summarize, below you'll find the quick tips you can share / copy & paste to your mobile:
If you know you'll be heading out at night, make sure your casual look is basic but can be glammed up at night.
Tip #2 Remember being casual can be showcased through your shoes, Sneakers are great during the day and heels are perfect at night. Not to mention, you'll want to rest your feet before wearing heels the whole night.
Tip #3 Third piece rule is your friend! Bring another piece to add to your look such as a motorcycle jacket or light coat.
Tip #4 Bring your Make up and accessories with you so you can add spice. Lipstick is the perfect way to take your look from day to night and be sure to change your jewelry.
