Mixed Stripe Textured Top 3 of 11
Don't think that a simple tee (that seems only perfect for day time) can't be worn for date night. Throw on a statement necklace and some metallic, nude, or black heels with your jeans and you're ready to go!

Gingham Boyfriend Shirt 4 of 11

Classic Chambray 7 of 11
A day to night round-up wouldn't be complete without a chambray shirt. They are the ultimate versatile piece. Wear an easy denim on denim look during the day, and then throw on a stack of statement necklaces and an a-line skirt (with the chambray tucked in, of course!) for an evening out!
