Day-to-Night Styler: From Casual Cool to Casual Chic

We all live busy lives; we go to school or work (or sometimes both), we try to keep our lives in order and, on top of everything else, we try to maintain a social life.

It can all be a bit overwhelming at times, especially when you’re running here, there and everywhere, and in the process of it all, still trying to look cute.  On a weekly basis, I will be posting a guide for an outfit that looks super cute and casual during the day, but you can easily rock out at night with a few accessory additions and/or a change of shoes.  And maybe, just maybe, it’ll help ease the stress of life a little bit because, hey, when we look good, we feel good, right?

This spring we see the return of the relaxed fit pant. And I couldn’t be happier. These pants are great because they’re totally sweatpant-comfy, without looking sweatpant-gnarly.  I love this pair from Express, especially with the  $9.99 (on sale) price tag!

Never wanting to look like you’re trying too hard during the day, pair the pants with a basic scoop neck tee for a simple look. Give it a nice lil’ spring boost by choosing a bright color; coral or yellow is a great way to go.

A cute and comfy pair of flats and some thin bangles round out the daytime look…

So classes are over and it’s time to meet the girls for a drink. You could go home and change the entire outfit, but why should you? Dressing this outfit up is easy; just add a cute jacket, fun necklace and change your shoes and you’re good to go. (You can even store these in your bag for a quick bathroom change.)

The jacket will instantly take this outfit from class mode to chic, evening mode, and swapping out the flats for a hot pair of gladiators will give you the glam factor you need. Plus, paired with the pants and tee, no one will ever know you came straight from lecture.

Just toss those flats into your bag and head out. Easy peasy.
