The Day-to-Night Top

LILT BLOG BACK TO BASICS 02Neutral Top 01


Last week I wore the A-line skirt  featured in today’s post much more casually, but this week I was wanting to create a dressier outfit that I could wear out during the evening.

Enter the Day-to-Night Top … It’s pretty straight forward, the kind of tops that I put under this category are tops that can be worn during the day, like to a work meeting, but also dressed up for night-time events, such as dinners or parties.

The secret to a good Day-to-Night Top is in the cut and the fabric. The silhouette should be modest but interesting, and the fabric should be dressy enough for night-time but not too glitzy, so it is still suitable for daytime. When picking fabrics think wovens in viscose, silk, or heavier linens, rather than cotton or knits.

The beauty of this style of top is that it is a super versatile item. Team it up with a pencil skirt or trousers for work, or a ball style skirt for an evening event. If you want to make it more casual, jeans and boots will suit perfectly.

So,  I’m still waiting for you guys to play along on Instagram or comment below!!!
