Here’s how to take a dress from morning to midnight this spring/summer. Day to night dressing is not hard – just swap out your accessories at sundown and get ready for the night ahead!
Here are six styles to choose from.
Love this yellow lace sundress from H&M (£5.99) and it could work day to night. During the day team it with a cute shell bangle (£7.99, New Look), straw bag (£14.99, H&M), clog sandals (£130, UGG @ Schuh), and some coral sunnies (£3, Claire’s Accessories).
For night, mix it up with a cute snakeprint mobile clutch purse (£7.99, H&M), killer orange heels (£34.99, New Look) and some glam diamante drop earrings (£10, The Collection @ Debenhams).
BHS’s green crepe twist shift (£30) looks great with bright colours during the day – team it with a bold yellow bag (£110, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams), contrasting stripe pumps (£tbc, Debenhams), a cute Hawaiian print watch (£60, JOY) and some big bold sunnies (£18, JOY).
Then, at night, make it monochrome and bold, with a zebra print clutch (£25, Star by Julien Macdonald @ Debenhams), some monochrome pattern courts (£tbc, Debenhams) and a pair of black drop earrings (£15, Betty Jackson Black @ Debenhams).
If the dress is monochrome like this jazzy stripe number from Principles by Ben De Lisi @ Debenhams (£60), then add a bit more monochrome, and maybe some print to contrast this print. Try these monochrome wooden sandals (£59.99, New Look), a wooden striped bangle (£5.99, New Look), and a bold leopard print backpack (£15.99, New Look) for a casual look.
French Connection’s print tunic dress (£95) looks great in the daytime with some summer boots (£59.99, New Look), cat’s eye sunnies (£5.99, New Look), and a block colour tote (£129, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams).
Then, come sundown, keep the look simple, but swap out the boots for some gold lace-ups (£29.99, H&M), a gorgeous crystal ring (£6.99, H&M), nose rings (£3.99 for two, H&M) and a fur clutch bag (£7.99, H&M),
White Stuff’s pretty navy dress will look retro-tastic during the day with some metallic ballet pumps (£12, BHS), love heart sunglasses (£16, Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams), a beautiful pastel blue bag (£19.99, New Look), and a big old floppy hat (£22, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams).
Then, switch it up at night, with some pretty floral high sandals (£100, French Connection), lovely jewel bangles from JOY (£12 for two), and a bold red tassel, and studded clutch (£25, Butterfly by Matthew Williamson @ Debenhams)
Last but not least, this bold orange Bardot neckline (huge this season) orange dress from New Look (£19) looks fab during the day with matching orange tote bag (£24.99, New Look), bronze sandals (£17.99, New Look), and muted orange sunnies (£7.99, H&M).
