How to Style a Printed Dress for Day and Night

Wearing a printed dress, black belt, black crossbody bag, black sunglasses, and black flatform shoes. Standing in front of a mirrored wall.

A simple change of shoes takes this printed dress outfit from day to night.

Here I’m wearing the dress I packed for Palm Beach. It’s a light weight flowy dress which can be styled easily for both daytime shopping and nighttime dinner and drinks. To start I cinched the waist with a black belt and then added a black crossbody bag. For the daytime outfit I added black and white flatforms and for the nighttime look I simply changed the shoes to rockstud heels. It’s the easiest outfit transition ever! What do you think of these looks? Have you ever completely changed an outfit just by changing the shoes?

  1. What a clever way to take this dress from day to night! Love both versions. And the studded heels really do a great job of adding glam. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you Lindsey. I actually broke down and bought them in beige as well. They are really super comfortable, though the beige is patent and dings easily, but still worth it :)

  9. Please send me those flatforms, I will send you my address. I love the dress already, it screams vacation and spring at the same time, the length is perfection and so are the flower patterns on it!! You look fabulous in both looks dear, the studded heels add pizzazz to the night look! I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

  13. What a gorgeous outfit post Lili. I love the dress and how you have taken it from day to night. I think it works really well both ways but my favourite is the night look because of your beautiful shoes.

    Have a lovely time

  16. Impressive how much the shoes can change the whole look. I wonder if I would be able to walk in these flatforms...

    1. When I first bought the flatforms they were actually difficult for me to walk in. I'm not sure if it was because I was used to heels, but I tripped a few times in them. Now they are fine, but some of my heels are still a bit more comfortable then these. I hope you and your little one are having wonderful times :)

  25. You must share your secret to looking great in a pair of flatform! I have tried on a pair and they made my legs look stocky and blocky, if that makes any sense? Maybe pairing it with such a feminine floral dress softens it down? You look great, Lili! Love the dress and you look fabulous with both flatform and heels.

    1. I still think they make my legs look a bit stocky, but I needed something practical for the beach and casual areas; and I'm too short to wear flats or sneakers. Thank you Shireen :)

  42. Yes, quite frequently especially if we're on vacation and I'm forced to pack ever so lightly :) that dress of yours is truly very versatile, Lili, I can see it over jeans, without the belt, many possibilities!!

    Incidentally, Lili, my link-up is now live and I do hope you'll come over xoxo
