Market Muse: Market Fashion from Day to Night

Chelsea Flea Market

Okay, so you’ve found the perfect outfit at the market and you’re wearing it around town but how can you take the look from a day exploring through the city to a night on the town?

One of the key things to remember about an evening look is to always have something in your outfit that functions as a statement piece. Whether it’s a beautiful necklace, a bright scarf, or a dapper bow tie you can easily equip any outfit to be evening ready in a snap. Here are some examples of items you can find at the market that will complete your look.

A beautiful necklace or vintage collar is all you need to take a simple sundress from day to night.  Prepare to be dazzled away with sparkling jewels and pearls from our fabulous vendors like Wildpalm Vintage. Their industry expertise in vintage jewelry can’t be beat (they even give you a little card on how to care for your jewelry). Plus they have a huge selection to choose from so you’ll never be bored no matter how many times you come back. While they refer to their jewelry selection as vintage it is truly timeless and will take your daytime look to an evening ensemble.  

Hint: Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. What catches your eye is the dazzling necklace paired with a signature black dress. Apply a similar principal to take your outfit from day to night.

A different take on a tie or scarf: Sure, you could wear them as they were intended or you could put a creative spin on them. Look for a bold print to jazz up a simple look or a neutral to moonlight a busier pattern and get creative. Wear a tie as a belt to add a shape to a flowy summer dress or take a scarf and tie it on your head as a headband.

Dress it up with a pair of heels: of course a pair of heels speaks for themselves. Not only are they a simple way to automatically take a look from day to night but they also have a way of completing a look from head to toe. Check out some great collections from Lulu Vintage or A Store with No Walls. For gentleman, go vintage with a signature pair of wing tipped leather shoes.
