A Shining Example: Day to Night
Blogger Stephanie Duncan of Her New Tribe styles the Floral Raffia Dress — a highlight of the Fall 2014 Runway - for real life, from day to night:
Wearing a dress meant for night in the daytime feels rebellious and fun! By keeping my makeup simple and accessories casual, even sporty, a party dress can feel modern and edgy for day.
For day, it’s the classics: Ray Ban Wayfarers and Vans slip on sneakers (which are sure to be paired with every feminine and flirty thing I own this saeason). Hair down and messy, textured with Surf Spray from Bumble and Bumble. Tarte Cheek stain and MAC lipstick in Cherish - I’m obsessed with a nude lip for day. Tote by fashionAble, a sustainable fashion brand.
For night, form meets function: Tights for night in the fall are a must for me, especially with short dresses —- no risk of flashing anyone, legs look thinner, and I feel more put together. Platform booties by Loeffler Randall, which go with everything except my swimsuit and pajamas. Hair is an undone not-so-fancy updo…basically I just twist, tuck and pin and hope for the best. Stila Stay All Day Eye Liner for a sharp cat eye and Bobbi Brown creamy matte lip color in Valencia Orange, which I think is more unexpected than red or pink.
