Taking a look effortlessly from day to night is the dream of every girl-about-town, and every working woman. Lugging around a change of shoes, even clothes, during the daily commute is challenging enough, and the fear of being overdressed for a coffee date with the girls isn’t easily avoidable, either.

But what if we show you two ways with one simple dress, and take the faff out of fashion? No-frills style is the key to a clutter-free wardrobe, and when you can recycle a look, a healthy bank balance follows (or so we hope!)

The Milly Summer dress is perfect for the current season, and nails two major spring/summer 2013 trends in one stylish swipe: monochrome and checks. The mid-length makes it ideal for day, whilst the cross-shoulder strap detail adds interest to an evening look.

An investment worth making, here are two ways to make the Milly Summer dress work for day and night.

The AM look:

If you’re looking to wear the Milly dress for day, adding a pop of colour will instantly lift the monochrome print. Block brights are key, and we love the unmatched colours of the cobalt ballet pumps and zingy yellow shoulder bag. Finish off with a delicate ring  for a summer-perfect look.

The PM look:

Take the Milly dress from brunch to bar by adding accenting accessories, and nothing does that better than metallics! The strappy gold-heeled sandals and metallic clutch won’t go amiss on the dance floor, and statement earrings will finish the look nicely.
