The easiest way to transition a dress from day to night is by adding sparkle and a new jacket. Having that piece that is one in the same is the most convenient way to do so. My go-to day outfit ALWAYS includes a colorful patterned scarf. I like them because they are a lot more casual and comfortable than a large statement necklace. For nighttime outings I ditch my scarf and khaki jacket and throw on a sequin-leather jacket and chunky jewelry.
