Can one dress really take you from day to night? Definitely! The trick is choosing the right dress...and the right accessories. And we’ll show you how.

Start with a strong foundation. We chose this little black number as our base, freshly updated with trend-right cold-shoulder details. What makes this dress a good choice? It’s so versatile and can easily take you from season to season (think stockings and boots for the cooler months). Plus, you can never go wrong with black. Everything goes with it and it’s oh-so simple to accessorize.

And speaking of accessorizing – this is where the magic happens. Creating a successful morning-to-night look is all in how your switch and swap your accessories. Join us…and “spend a day” with this little black dress to see how easy it is to transition your style.

Rise and shine! Your look needs to keep up with you when you’re out and about, so select accessories that are totally cool and casual. These comfy athleisure slip-ons help you stay stylish on the go with unexpected pale pink twists. Not feeling the cold-shoulder details so early in the morning? No problem. Hide ‘em with a fun floral bomber. Then grab a crossbody with an oversized tassel and goldtone accents to add subtle bling while keeping you completely organized.

Meeting the girls? It’s time to kick up the chic. Shed that bomber and show off those shoulders. Add some dramatic sunglasses and strappy heels to flaunt that new pedi. Then top with an oversized white wide-brimmed hat for high contrast. Because, of course, girl time should never be disturbed.

This look just says sophisticated glam – perfect for whatever the night holds. Turn up the shine with a sparkly watch, earrings and an intricate cuff. Go with a metallic clutch that’s large enough to fit the essentials but small enough for easy toting. Want a fast-track to fabulous? Then all-eyes-on-you cage heels should definitely be on your list.

One dress. Endless possibilities. With a little creativity, you can create a ton of incredible looks to suit your personality…and your day’s to-dos. Best of all, everything is up to 65% off other retailers’ prices at Burlington.
