Outfit inspiration: Day to evening

By | April 5, 2012 | Style & Beauty

As a personal shopper and stylist, one of my most frequent requests from clients is being able to take their work or daytime attire into the evening. In today’s economy everyone wants to get the most “bang for their buck” and purchasing versatile clothing is a fantastic way to do so. The main featured item is beautiful coral dress from Ann Taylor. When worn alone, it might be a bit risqué for a professional environment, but as I have shown above anchoring it with neutral colors, a sharp fitting blazer, structured bag and lower heeled pumps it can easily take you to any important meeting.

Heading straight to a fun night on the town? No problem. If you ditch the blazer and large bag, add in some bright “notice me” accessories and trade up to sky high snakeskin heels, you’ll be ready for anything that comes your way.
