Day to Night Festive Looks for the Busy Mum

Have a packed day this New Year with not much time to go home to change for the posh party that you need to attend at night? Don’t worry, all you need is one key piece that you can wear both in the day and at night, using the right accessories to make a seamless transition for looks that fit the occasion. Net-A-Porter Retail Fashion Director, Lisa Aiken, shows us how.

Day look

Play it down by contrasting the luxe fabric with a white tee underneath and finish off the look with a pair of white loafers.

Night Look

Take off the tee and spruce up the outfit with a dramatic jacket. Add a mini bag to the look and replace the loafers with a pair of glitter pump for the party.

Key piece 2: Black and White striped Midi Skirt

Use a feminine statement skirt to grab attention both in the day and night. Depending on what you pair it with, you can achieve two very different looks.

Day Look

Pair the skirt with a silk-crepe top that drapes beautifully. Highlight the neat, flattering waist by tucking it in and contrast the look with a pair of slippers that belongs on this season’s must-have list.
