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. This column will focus on one piece per week, and teach you how to take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Like Taylor Swift, I'm a huge fan of little white dresses. They're breezy, gorgeous, and effortlessly elegant - and no longer strictly limited to the beach or a fancy garden party.

This week, I'll be showing you how to wear a little white dress for a day of classes and a night out... without looking like you're about to dance around a meadow (not that there's anything wrong with that, of course).

Little White Dress: Class

For class, belt your dress around the waist to dress it down. The addition of neutral brown makes the look more casual, so add matching braided sandals and a large brown beach tote. Accessorize with a beaded coral wrap bracelet and a fun, interlocking ring for a daytime look that's still elegant.

Little White Dress: Night Out

This look is all about goddess-like glamor. Add some height and sparkle with gold embellished wedge heels, and accessorize with gorgeous gold statement jewelry like a pearl-embellished bangle and feather earrings. Try out a quilted rose gold cross-body bag to add a touch of sophistication to the look. Tie everything together with a pop of color like this beautiful orange statement ring.
