Turn To Boring Wardrobe Staples For A Glamorous Night Out
We have all invested in a set of secure stocks (read exorbitantly priced designer clothes) for those extravagant night outs. And we do make enough use of it until one fine day our reflection in the mirror tells us, ‘you’re wearing THAT dress again?’
Yes, that’s when you need to find other alternatives. We doubt you’d even look at those boyfriend jeans or casual tees while skimming through your closet for an outfit for the night. Underestimation is often the case with these boring wardrobe staples. Stylize your 4 most basic everyday-wear items as we tell you how to transform your casual clothes into glamorous evening wear. You’ll be surprised with the outcome!
While your loose shirt is perfect for lounging about at home on that comfy couch, it can really turn into a sartorial accomplice when need be. Undo the last four buttons of that shirt, tie it up into a bow and give a sneak peek of your midriff, while you pair it with a gorgeous maxi skirt. The shy ones can simply tuck in the skirt and pair it with an A-line maxi skirt, a pencil midi skirt or a flowy pastel skirt. Accessorising is key here, so wearing a pair of dainty gold earrings or hoops and bangles will complete this look.
How on earth can your oversized, faded plain black/brown/grey/white tee ever turn you into a diva? By pairing it with a quirky little skirt in a fun print: think bright aztecs, monochrome stripes or pretty skater skirts. Add in bright pops of colours with a chunky neckpiece or any kind of statement jewellery to really glam it up. Do we see you already digging through that pile of clothes to find that sweatshirt?
A hip hop night you’ve been looking forward to just got cooler courtesy your torn jeans. Get those rugged pair of jeans out and pair it with your favourite tee. Turn the tee into a crop top by tying a knot on the side and add on long blingy necklaces for some dazzle. You can even throw on a shiny sequinned top over those rugged jeans for a contrasting look. Complete the outfit with an oversized clutch and hip hop your way to the next party!
Your summer day-dress with pretty flowers on it can look a little too casual for a night out in town. But if you throw on a short leather jacket to add an edge to your look, pair it with wedge-boots, and strike a stunning smile of bright red lips, you’re ought to break hearts.
