Ah, the holidays: an exciting yet challenging time for closets everywhere. From the office party and after party to everything in between—there is no shortage of running around from place to place this time of year. Luckily, there is also no shortage of versatile pieces that make it easy to transition your outfits from day to night, work party to Christmas party or out-and-about to girl’s night out. And our feature fashion blogger, Lauren McBride, has the perfect outfit combinations that do the trick below.
With the holidays approaching, I like to have a few key pieces in my wardrobe for last-minute holiday events or get togethers like an office Christmas party. I specifically aim for pieces that can transition from day to night with the simple swap of a few accessories or shoes, that way I get the most from each item!
Today I’m excited to share with you two transitional day to night looks that are perfect for the holiday season. Flannel is always a star wardrobe piece during the fall and winter, and I love how easily it can transition for the evening. For day time, pair a button down plaid with a pair of jeggings, boots, and your coziest cardi. Add a cute knit hat for extra warmth! Layering and mixing textures gives a sophisticated and cozy holiday look!
Another staple wardrobe piece is a neutral sweater dress. I love the versatility a sweater dress has to offer, and it’s easily styled for both day and night time. Knee high boots and a faux fur vest make the sweater dress a little more casual for a daytime, wintry look. I love adding cozy knit tights or knee high socks for some added layers and texture. It also keeps my legs warm!
And there you have it! Four easy outfits for daytime, night time, office party or after party. One thing is for sure, you’ll win best dressed guest wherever you go! Photos by: Alicia Ann Photographers
