When you’re going from a day outfit to a night one, you don’t have to completely change your outfit–you just need to swap out one item for a statement piece! Especially if you’re a woman on the go or someone who is heading to a night event right after you leave work, you might not always have time to revamp your entire outfit. The secret is upgrading one of your pieces to a statement piece. Whether it’s swapping your work tote for a glittery clutch, opting for a bold red lip instead of nude, or ditching your comfortable flats for a pair of heels, a little bit goes a long way. However, most people overlook my favorite accessory to upgrade: jewelry.

A bold earring or necklace is an effective way to take your look from day to night instantly. Not only does the right piece of jewelry add sparkle to your outfit, but it could change the entire vibe of your look and make it look more sophisticated. Dainty bar necklaces or layered chains are minimal but chic and add just the right amount of glimmer and style to any outfit. During the day, you can wear your favorite pair of studs or hoop earrings, then swap them out for a statement ear cuff and stud combo or a gold ear climber. Both pieces can be edgy, bold, and elegant! If it’s chilly, finish off your night look with a cool suede or leather jacket if the setting is more casual, or a short black coat if it’s a working dinner party or event. But most of all, have fun.
