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.

Living in Charleston, I'm surrounded by summery prints year-round (everyone just loves Lilly P. over here!), so it's no surprise that palm tree prints have made a splash this season. 

Palm tree print dresses are fun, flirty pieces to add to your wardrobe during the hot summer months. However, planning an outfit around palm tree print anything can be overwhelming. You don't want to end up looking like a tacky tourist! 

And that's where I come in. This week I'm going to show you how to style a palm tree print dress for class and a night out without looking tacky. 

Palm Tree Print Dress: Class

The trick to rocking this look is to find a palm print dress that has a classic silhouette and doesn't incorporate too many busy colors. Pair your dress with a denim jacket, white sneakers, and a structured tote for a cute yet comfy outfit that will take you from class to class.

Stack as many gold bangles as you wish on your wrist, along with gold and emerald green earrings to bring out the colors in the dress. To complete your summer vibe, highlight your cheekbones, put on some classic sunglasses, and enjoy the day.

For a night out, pair this dress with your favorite neutral pumps, then grab an elegant clutch to carry just the essentials. Since it's a halter dress, I think it's safe to skip a necklace. Accessorize with a single gold bangle with navy blue stones and gold tassel earrings. Use your trusty highlighter again to make your skin glow! 

What Do You Think?

Would you wear a palm tree print dress or do you think they should be left for vacation only? Let me know how you'd style one for class and a night out!
