Sometimes, all you need for a great evening look is a small cocktail bag. If nighttime plans suddenly pop up, move from day to night style by switching from a laptop bag to a more festive clutch.
A survey by Cotton Incorporated found that 69 percent of women prefer to wear one comfortable outfit all day rather than change clothes to suit different activities. So, a few versatile dresses are ideal wardrobe staples. You don't have to change your outfit if your plans change; just exchange your accessories to give your day look some evening pizzaz.
A bold accent like leopard print is all you need to spice up your look. As the spring 2010 designer collections proved, leopard prints can be the perfect addition to a casual ensemble. Try anything from a subtle leopard belt or lightweight, flowing scarf to a bolder option such as a skirt. You'll find that leopard is a daytime hit wonderful for a night out.
Master stylist and salon/spa owner Missi Koebler says every woman's best accessory is her hair. Create a hot summer look that works both day and night with just two tools: bobby pins and hair spray. Before heading to work in the morning, pull your hair back as follows:
Layers keep your look versatile. A great look for summer is white-on-white. Our suggestion: a ruched tank under a boyfriend jacket with a pair of cropped black pants and comfy flats for day. Remove the jacket, add jewelry and a floral silk scarf, and slip into strappy high-heeled sandals for the evening look.
While smokey eyes are great for night, bold lips will satisfy your day and nightime style needs. Red is red-hot right now, a classic color making a comeback in the fashion magazines and on the red carpet. For summer, find a shade that complements your skin tone and wear a light later for day. Come time to spruce up for night time events, re apply more liberally.
