Holiday Rush: Outfits That Will Take You From Day To Night

Holiday Rush: Outfits That Will Take You From Day To Night

The days leading up to Christmas are packed with a flurry of events. From last-minute gift shopping and a mad dash to the grocery to catching up with friends during lunch and then attending parties in the evening. With all that has to be done, there’s barely enough time for several outfit changes for every single task or event. The smartest choice would be to choose outfits that will take you from day to night with only a few alterations like a shoe and bag change or addition of accessories to change up your look. 


We’ve rounded up several items to help you get through the holiday rush.


For the Working Woman

Shop the Adrienne Vittadini Asymmetrical Flounce Dress, $50.95


Finding an outfit that’s suitable for work yet can also take you to dinner afterward or a party with friends can be a challenge. If you still have that 9-to-5 job to attend to before all the festivities, don’t worry. Here are outfit options for you that will be appropriate for work and the after-work events. Plus, we'll show you how to style them.


For Day

Shop the Ruffle Jacket, $39.99
Shop the Noelle Low Dress Sandal, $59.95

To go from day to night, simply remove the jacket and change your accessories for a more glam evening look that will make you ready for a dinner date or office party. A change of accessories is the quickest way to spice up an outfit and it doesn’t take up much space in your bag. Changing shoes can be optional, depending on what you already have on. Evening bags are normally small and handy so these can be placed inside your day bag and used as a pouch in the meantime then taken out when you’re ready to party for the night.
