Summer AM to PM Fits with River Island

Racing between school drop-offs, coffee catch-ups, office meetings and after-work drinks can be a tricky business. We'll take a wild guess that you most likely don't have the time to stop off at home for a quick outfit change, so a versatile outfit that can take you seamlessly from invite to invite is a must. Our easiest solution: a day-to-night dress. Basically, dresses for when it feels like there just aren't enough hours in the day. Here are River Island's favourites.

Printed Midis

Can’t seem to find the right outfit that'll work for your meeting at 3pm and drinks at 7pm? Luckily, there's a dress for that: a printed midi. Smart enough for the office thanks to its longer length, but with an on-trend print that's still playful enough for catch-ups with the girls. Style with a blazer and loafers or with a leather jacket and chunky sandals, depending on your office's dress code. And remember, you can always pack a spare change of shoes in your bag for a more impactful switch-up.

Lightweight Dresses

The mastery of a day-to-night dress really comes into play for holiday packing. Whether jet-setting off to international territory or keeping it closer to home, we can almost bet that you have some kind of baggage limit. Taking up minimum suitcase space, minis are a holiday no-brainer. We recommend one in a looser style that'll keep you hot and unbothered as you let the day take you wherever (you're on holiday after all).

Floral Minis

Meet your wardrobe's newest addition: the floral mini dress. Mini in length, big on wearability. It really is an answer-all-your-prayers kind of dress with its ability to be styled up or down for every itinerary. A balancing act of smart-but-not, it doesn't look overdressed during daytime activities, but also isn't too relaxed for when the dress code calls for something smarter. The perfect middle ground for even the busiest of days, if you ask us.
