Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

If there’s one summer trend you can wear well into the fall (and winter… and spring…) it’s black and white. But nothing is quite so versatile as a black and white striped dress. The preppy print keeps things casual enough for daytime, but the dramatic, contrasting hues can really spice things up for night. What’s not to love?

Check out the outfits I created for a super chic, contrasting black and white striped dress below:

Create a casual vibe with a dressed-down denim jacket, adding a pair of menswear-inspired ankle booties that are perfect for the transition to fall weather. This gives you a boy-meets-girl look that’s ideal for strolling around the quad. Next, add feminine flair with a bright aqua belt and a two-tone structured bag that’s not too matchy-matchy. Complete the ensemble with a pair of unexpectedly quirky earrings — like these bee-shaped studs. So cute!

Enhance the drama factor with your night out look by pairing your dress with a stunning multi-colored statement necklace and planning the rest of your accessories around those hues. Try a deep green clutch with matching teardrop studs, then add balance with a skinny black waist belt. Complete the outfit with an eye-catching pop of color, like these to-die-for yellow pumps.

    I’m a big fan of both stripes and black and white so I’ll have to see what I can get my hands on.

    I love the black and white stripes. So retro, but classy with the cuts of the dresses. Perfect mix!
