How To Style: Dressing Up & Dressing Down

I hate reserving cocktail dresses just for those fancy nights out and only wearing summer day dresses during the day. Clothes can be worn at any occasion, you just need to know how to accessorise it. Here are a few ways I have styled these two dresses for the day and night.

This dress is what is classifies as a day dress. In the first day outfit, I threw in some blue pops of colour. The shoes make the outfit very wearable for a day of shopping and the hat provides me with some shade from the summer sun's harsh rays. The night outfit, instead of pops of blue, it has pops of pink, which makes the outfit more feminine. Heels instantly make any outfit look more formal.

The easiest way to dress down a fancy dress is to throw a casual jacket over it, such as a khaki jacket as I have done or even a denim jacket. Boots also dress down the outfit. For the next outfit, I ditched the jacket and boots and put on some heels. I accessorised it with some simple dangly silver earrings. The accessories are simple as the pattern of the dress is so overwhelming.
