So what happens when you have to go to work and have a date night or after-work activity. There comes in the art of learning how to make the most of your wardrobe basics to transition your outfits. And today in collaboration with Opeyemi's Diary once again, we are showing you how to transition your outfits from Day to Night. Recall our previous collaboration on how to mix prints here

To change up your outfit from work appropriate to date night, here are simple tips and options
1. Pair a simple pencil dress with a blazer and pumps for work. For Date night, take off the blazer and swap the pumps for open-toe sandals.

2. One can always decide to layer a white shirt underneath a sleeveless dress, jumpsuit or top with a low neckline. Then for date night, remove the shirt underneath and there you go.

3. Another option is to wear your typical work wardrobe basics like your trousers and skirts with button up shirts, then for date night, swap the classic shirt for a crop top or sleeveless piece, something that shows a little skin.

4. Always keep in mind that your accesories will make a huge difference too. Opting for lace up sandals as opposed to pumps or a clutch in place of a structured bag, can easily transition your outfit from work to after-work appropriate.

5. Most importantly, invest in the right basics, this offer ease when transitioning from day to night. For example, notice how both Opeyemi and I incorporated a blazer and pointed pumps into our outfits. Those, in my opinion, are two work-wear basics that you can't do without.
