Give the cool combo a punchy daytime spin by adding a bold coat for that extra bit of polish in the ensemble. Finish off the outfit with a pair of chic sneakers and don’t forget sunglasses.

Skip the dress for date night and opt for something a little more laid-back. Strappy heels, a leather jacket, and a crossbody bag add just the right amount of edge to the ensemble.
