If you’re going out straight after work/college then this could work for you, or if you just can’t decide what to wear, you can just add and take away accessories and you’ll be good to go! Obviously I added a red lip too. For example, I added the necklace, and took away the glasses (temporarily bind while taking the photos but I would obviously wear contacts), changed the jacket and bag, folded down the disco pants to make it less casual and I transformed myself from “day time diva” to “night time rocker”. JOKING, but you get the idea.  

I love the look of the gold choker against the velvet, it’s such a killer combination. This is more of a casual night look, because we’re pairing the disco pants and velvet with the smart jacket and I’m not wearing heels. This is perfect if you’re going to a music night, or just for dinner and drinks; probably not a full night out but it still looks dressy!
I need to find better ways to do my hair but for now I think I’m enjoying the quiff. If you want the perfect quiff you do have to put in more effort with the combing and teasing and it definitely works better with second day hair. It never works on freshly washed hair, even with excessive amounts of back-combing. Also, I don’t use hairspray but that’s just because I don’t have any, but I think it works well without it anyway and you’re using less product. So just tease away ladies.

Finally, my makeup, it’s all neutral, my same old tinted moisturizer, neutral eyes and obviously for the night look I added the lipstick.

Hope you guys enjoy this outfit and let me know how you would transition from day to night.
