Go From Day To Night In 5 Seconds Flat

Getting ready for a night out on the town might be the most fun part of going out, but let’s face it — who has time for that? During a busy work week, the last thing we have time for is a last-minute costume change. Which brings us to the slightly intimidating day-to-night outfit: The oft-talked-about but rarely achieved look only attempted by your most stylish (not to mention chameleon-like!) friend.

Turns out, the all-hours outfit isn’t that difficult to pull off. With a few simple tweaks here and there and a multipurpose bag, you can go from desk to disco in five seconds flat. Just remember, choosing accessories that can transition from tote to clutch, satchel to crossbody, or all of the above — like our favorite, the DVF Secret Agent Bag — is key. See how senior style editor Annie Georgia Greenberg puts together three totally transitional and easy all-hours outfits, without the extra trip home.
