As Nicky Hilton once quoted, “Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it.”
In today’s fast-paced world, most of us are always running short on time. It doesn’t matter if one is a working professional or a stay-at-home mom, there is always something keeping us occupied. And on top of that, there are various events that take place in our day-to-day lives that require us to dress our best. In such a scenario, it becomes vital for us to build a wardrobe consisting of versatile outfits that can be used for multiple purposes and are comfortable as well. The majority of the clothing options from the house of Lakshita, be it our embroidered tunics or our floral printed kurtas, fulfil this criterion, but we know that it is not that easy to make something work for both daytime and evening occasions. This is why we are here with a guide on how you can transform your daytime outfits into gorgeous ensembles suitable for evening wear. We don’t want you to start from scratch while selecting your attire for evening events as with a few tweaks here and there, you can easily use your daytime outfits for nighttime occasions. This is not only time-saving but also gives you the liberty to showcase your personal style.
So let us have a look at a few ways through which this can be done along with some examples.
First and foremost, utilize the power of accessorizing as just a few accessories can elevate any outfit, adding glamour and sophistication to your look. For instance, this green A-line dress from our collection of summer dresses can be worn during the day along with a casual bag and strappy sandals or flats. However, this same dress can be worn on evening events by swapping the casual bag with a clutch or satchel and the flats with pointed-toe heels or wedges. Belts, scarves, and hair accessories are a few other items that you use to change your casual dresses into pretty summer evening dresses.
Now, the right footwear is another thing that has the ability to completely transform your look. For example, if you pair this yellow summer kurta set with traditional juttis or kolhapuris, you have got a look apt for festive occasions celebrated during the day. And this same kurta set when paired with high heels, preferably white in colour, can be worn to evening occasions such as dinner and parties. Opt for footwear that comes with embellishments such as sequins and beads to further elevate your look.
Another thing that can be done to change your daytime attire into something apt for evening events is layering. This works especially well for cotton wear for women, where you can wear your cotton or linen shirts in a more elegant way by adding a tailored blazer or a structured jacket. For example, this lavender shirt from our collection of summer wear for women can be worn alone during the day and will look great when styled with a white linen blazer for evening activities.
Another tip includes experimenting with your hairstyle. We know you must be wondering what difference your hairstyle could possibly make, but the truth is that your hairstyle carries a lot more power than you think. Look at this particular blue kurta with schiffli embroidery from our collection of printed summer kurtas which will look classy and professional when you wear your hair in a tight bun or a sleek ponytail during the day, but graceful with a feminine touch if you braid your hair or let them open in cascading curls during the night.
Another small but significant thing with a huge impact that can modify your daytime look into something apt for nighttime occasions is your makeup. Look at this grey co-ord which is great for daytime use, but will look amazing in the evening as well if you just go for a bold lip colour and more dramatic eye makeup.
Lastly, always remember that transforming your daytime outfits into stunning evening ensembles is not just about the clothes you wear, but also about how you carry yourself. As long as you are confident, comfortable, and own who you are, you can make even the most basic garments such as neutral-coloured cotton kurtas look glamorous by using the above-mentioned tips.
We would like to conclude by saying that all you need is a little creativity and attention to detail, and you can effortlessly transform your daytime outfits into stunning evening ensembles. So, next time you are worried about what to wear to an evening event or don’t have enough time to change, feel free to reimagine your daytime wardrobe and create a captivating ensemble that turns heads and makes you feel like the star of the night.
