By employing a few key styling tricks with a crisp, head-to-toe white ensemble, that midday switcheroo becomes unncessary—meaning more time at your parties, uninterrupted. Here, three outfit ideas for your next occasion.

Pros for day: Flats are comfortable for running from party to party, but a metallic pair adds enough pizzaz to make them feel festive rather than office-ready.
Pros for night: A jumpsuit that cinches at the waist instantly flatters the figure and lends a tailored (and consequently, evening-ready) vibe to the look.
