We’ve all had those times where our long work days collided with our evening social events. The nightlife may not be as lively as it once was, but when it does you’re going to want to be prepared to transition your outfit from corporate daytime wear to chic nightlife ready. Here are a few tips to consider if you have some staple work-appropriate pieces that you can turn into a stylish evening look. 

The Silk Blouse

Collared, sleeveless, or button-up, a silk blouse is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your day-to-day wardrobe. Style a silk blouse with slacks or a skirt with or without a blazer for your daytime work look. At night, pair the blouse with skinny jeans or a miniskirt and statement jewelry.


Neutral and printed jumpsuits are an all-in-one outfit that can work in a professional or a social setting. Pair with a blazer and a sensible shoe during the day and then when you’re ready to take your look out with friends for the night, switch to a heel or denim jacket to complete the nightlife look. 

Little Black Dress

A work appropriate black dress is one of the best daytime fashion pieces that can easily transition into a nightlife ready look with just a few tweaks. Pair it with a blazer and sneakers or flats during the day and switch to a heel for your evening event. You can also pair chunky gold jewelry and bright colored accessories to create a more casual look. 


Skirts, especially midis and wraps, have always been an office staple. They come in a range of fits, from loose and flowy to the classic pencil skirt. They pair well with a silk camisole top and blazer for the daytime and when you’re ready for nightwear you can simply trade out the blazer for a leather jacket. Pair strappy shoes and bold hair clips to create a stylish after-hours outfit. 

The Shirt Dress

A shirt dress is a versatile piece that can be modified in a variety of ways. For the daytime, style it with denim jeans or leggings then just add a belt or even a blazer to complete your nightlife look. Pair with strappy heels and a bold clutch to further the overall look. 

As you can see, transforming your daytime outfits to nightlife ones can be simple. Now, these are just a few styling tips to consider with pieces you may already have in your wardrobe.
