How To Take Printed Palazzo Pants From Day To Night (PHOTOS)

Getting dressed for 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, 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.

Putting on a pair of printed palazzo pants, day or night, is definitely a statement-making move. Yet a trouser this bold can also be quite versatile -- if you know how to mix-and-match. For instance, a casual daytime palazzo calls for a striped tee and brightly colored sneakers. Topped off with a pair of tortoiseshell shades, this daytime ensemble evokes a casual-cool vibe.

When taking these pants through to the evening hours, a simple silk blouse worn with complementary printed heels adds the perfect touch of swank. Lastly, try on a chic, gold necklace to polish off your nighttime look.
