I don’t know about you, but I often have days where I’m rushing from a luncheon to meetings to dinner and then an event later in the evening. For days like these, I aim to style an outfit that can function all day long in case I don’t have the time to change. That’s when my day to night dresses come in handy and save the day. And one of my favorite day to night dresses at the moment is this Eliza J ombre fit and flare. It is so cute and classic, yet unique and interesting as well. I know it can be tough to find the perfect transitional pieces, so I’ve rounded up all the best day to night dresses in the post below!
This darling Eliza J dress has a paneled bodice that keeps it sleek and tailored. It’s actually a sweater-dress, so it would be perfect in the fall with black booties as well. I got this during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it is still in stock! The best thing about any transitional dress is that it is versatile, classic, comfortable, effortless and has many styling possibilities. I typically look for a dress that can be re-worn in different ways…something I can add a twist of my personality to. For instance, animal print or a pretty floral pattern is always a great option. And it’s certainly smart to have a mix of simple dresses like so and other dresses with interesting details like this. If you go for a more classic piece such as this dress, focus on accessories like statement earrings to add something extra to it in the evening. Even switching from flats to heels can make all the difference in elevating your look!
Do y’all have your go-to day to night dresses? Or outfit? If not, it’s time to invest in some. See more of my favorites in the boutique below.
How’s your Tuesday going so far? xoxo – Tanya
