A SUMMER LOOK TAKEN FROM DAY TO NIGHT.
A summer look needs to be flexible. The chances are that you will need to be cool and comfortable in the day, but quickly turn it into something more dressy in an evening. Especially as most summer days tend to go into an evening. So I thought I would share with you a few ways to take your summer look into an evening style.
Swap your shoes
A quick way to turn your summer day look into something more appropriate for the evening is to change your shoes. You may have slipped into some comfortable sandals for the day. But changing into a shoe with more of a heal or a wedge style would be perfect for an evening look. It can be one of the quickest things you do, but it can change the whole look of the clothes you are wearing.
Add some jewelry
During the day, you are less likely to wear jewelry that is heavy or embellished. This is possibly because of the heat during the day. However as the temperature drops at night, this is the chance to add a statement necklace or some other embellished items. You may want to consider something like Australian Opal and Opal Jewelry to give you a unique look. Some statement pieces can change the way an outfit looks. For example, a plain vest top will look more dressed up once you add a statement necklace to it.
A slick of a bright red or pink lipstick
The chances are during the day you will have gone for a toned down makeup look, but this means that at night you can jazz it up a little. By simply applying a bright red or pink lipstick your face will glow and look brighter. Making you appear dressed up when you haven’t done that much. Also, these lip colours would compliment a freshly tanned glow in your face.
Change your hairstyle
Try and wear your hair in the opposite way to how you have done in the day. If you can’t change too much of what you are wearing then a change of hairstyle will give you the uplift you need. If you've worn it down during the day, tie it up for a more rock chick look. If it has been up in a messy bun add a little bit of hairspray to it and let it loose around your face. Giving the effect of a beach waves.
Add a coverup and some accessories
The last few things you could do is to add a coverup or some accessories to compliment your clothes and outfit. The temperature does go cooler in the evening so you may want to consider a wrap or a cool jacket. You may also want to consider the use of a bag and maybe even a light scarf around your neck. Accessories can change the whole look of an outfit with minimal effort.
I hope these ideas help you take your summer day look to a gorgeou nighttime outfit.
