Day-to-Night Style: Summer Dresses & Shorts

Unless you’re part of a very small percentage of women who are blessed with unlimited closet space (P.S. we’re very jealous of you if you belong in that set!), chances are that a versatile wardrobe stands pretty high up on your shopping priority list.

That’s why we’re all about pieces that multitask—going from day to night with a mere swap of accessories & shoes! We take two of the summer’s most essential closet staples, the summer dress and shorts, to show you how easy it can be to get the most mileage out of these beloved pieces.

Who doesn’t love clothes that work overtime? We definitely do!

What are some of your go-to pieces for staying cool in the summer while looking work appropriate?

M: Dresses carry me through these hot Las Vegas summers! I’m all about a fun feminine print with color. I love the duality of either wearing a bold dress with simple shoes and accessories with or wearing a beautiful basic dress and pulling it together with more statement accents!

What are some of your can’t-live-without accessories this season?

M: Year-round, I cannot live without sunglasses!  I love how the right pair can completely bring your outfit together. Whether it’s a fun and brightly colored pair for a fun day at the beach/pool or a more classic, put-together pair--- sunglasses are my absolute favorite accessories!

Describe your perfect day-to-night ensemble.

M: My perfect day-to-night outfit will always consist of a nice pair of dark denim with a basic top, which can then be dressed up with jewelry and beautiful shoes for the evening.
