Sporting a metallic, typically nighttime dress in broad daylight, I hiked across the Brooklyn Bridge in style. Proving that shiny & sparkly can work just as easily during the day as it does once the sun goes down.
The key to making metallics work during the day is layering them with daytime accessories such as this denim vest. You can't get much more afternoon appropriate than light wash denim, and in this case, it balances out the extreme shine of the dress creating a casual yet alluring vibe.
White is a great color for day because it brightens up your entire look. Incorporate it into your outfit as much as possible. Try and stay away from black if you're trying to conceal the fact that you're wearing evening attire.
Wearing nightwear during the day can get tricky, so make sure to use footwear to your advantage. Sneakers ground a flashy look while adding a dimension of casualness to an otherwise nightclub-esque ensemble.
Lucite jewelry is a fabulous choice for day or night and therefore easily transitions into any type of look. I especially love this piece for day though because of its fresh, white accents.
Throw some bright colors into the mix via bracelets and nail color.
Wearing mettalics during the day is definitely achievable and even quite fashion forward if you make the rest of your ensemble casual and daytime oriented. All you have to do is swap your vest for a leather jacket and your sneakers for some strappy black stilettos once dusk rolls around and you'll be well on your way to enjoying some chic cocktails.

Living in New York City this summer has been incredibly energizing and magical. So far I've experienced living in LA as well as NYC and I'm so thankful for the opportunities and the internships I've had in both iconic cities. Although LA is incredible, I'm definitely moving back to The Big Apple after graduation in May.
This summer I'm interning at the Daily Front Row, which is the official magazine of New York Fashion Week. I've gotten to do some pretty amazing things such as interviewing stars on the red carpet, attending exclusive nightclub parties, interviewing designers, speaking with editors, and listening to Michael Kors speak at Hearst Tower. I've had multiple pieces published online at Fashionweekdaily.com, and I'm making some amazing connections.
My weekends are filled with exploration, dining out, and getting lost in Central Park. This past Saturday my friends and I decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and investigate some Brooklyn hotspots on the other side.
Stay tuned to hear about more of my NYC adventures!
