Elizabeth Made This hosted The Day and Night Dress Challenge from 2017-2019 here and on Instagram.
The idea for the challenge? Create 2 looks from 2 dresses, one for your normal everyday life and one for a night out. Each year we threw a different spin on this idea. Here’s how my team of friends interpreted the challenge.

The Day and Night Dress Challenge 2017: Little black dress + a day dress
The challenge? Make a little black dress for a night out, and a dress you’d wear everyday
The Day and Night Dress Challenge 2018: Coffee + Cocktails
This year’s challenge was all about the kind of anytime dress you’d wear for a coffee date with a friend. For the night look, we all went in a little fancier with cocktail dresses.
The challenge? Make a dress you’d wear to coffee with a friend + one you’d wear for dinner out

The Day and Night Dress Challenge 2019: 1 Dress 2 Looks
We shook things up in 2019 by taking a dress that wasn’t getting much wear and giving it some wardrobe buddies. Here’s how we all created 2 looks with 1 dress.
The challenge? Find a dress you’re not wearing, and make it 2 different pieces that make you want to wear it!
