Day-To-Night Dressing With Lace (PHOTOS)

Getting dressed for the day can be as easy as one, two, three, but when you have to quickly go from dressed down to dressed up, the equation gets a little trickier. When it comes to day-to-night dressing, sometimes simple additions will help you do the math. You can add a layering piece for the nine-to-five, or a pair of killer heels and a clutch for cocktail hour. But whatever the case, it's definitely the little things that count.

For example, a pretty lace dress goes a long way if you know which key pieces will punctuate the look. And thankfully, it's one of the more versatile fall staples out now. Whether you wear it with an oversized blazer and a flat loafer or a tailored jacket and sleek heel, the little black lace dress is a stellar starting point for any day-to-evening equation.

And don't miss this guide on how to wear fall lace without looking prissy.
