Now that summertime is here, a dress that can effortlessly take you from day to night is exactly what you need in your wardrobe. Luckily, we’ve got tonnes on site right now that come in plenty of different styles and colours. So, get ready to take on any outfit dilemma, any time of the day. Keep scrolling to find our five top picks of the most versatile dresses and how to style them for a day in the sun or an evening out. We’ve got a feeling you won’t be able to pick just one favourite…
1. Maxin’ out
The easiest way to take an outfit from day to night is changing up your footwear: for the day, choose some white trainers for a laid-back chic look and then in the evening, swap for some white mules with a low heel. A straw bag and hat combo will look great during the day and a mini grab bag in a complementing colour will work perfectly come nighttime.
2. The little black dress
A staple black dress is the most versatile of them all, especially when it comes to summer dressing. For the day, we’re channelling real Sienna Miller at Glastonbury vibes with some cream cowboy boots and aviator-style sunglasses. And to transform the look for a spontaneous night out, just add some killer heels and gold jewellery and you’re good to go.
3. Keep it colour-blocked
We’re obsessed with chuck-on dresses, as they are always comfortable, breezy on a hot day and so easy to style. To take this one on a day trip, opt for a chunky sandal and a cross body bag – and then, when the evening rolls around, a heeled pair of sandals and a grab bag will do the trick to dress it up.
4. Some red ruffles
Mini wrap dresses are another undeniable summer staple, and they work both casually styled with some white flats and dressed up with some metallic strappy heels. We’d add a backpack and honey-tinted sunglasses to work for anything you’ve got planned in the sunshine. Or, choose a pearl bag and some gold petal earrings to dress this up for dancing all night.
5. Always classic
Wearing white lends itself as the perfect opportunity to experiment with some colour in your accessories. We picked a yellow colour palette here with some flat snake-print sandals and tan straw bag for the daytime. Then, for a more formal occasion, these yellow heeled mules and a cross body bag make the perfect pairing.
