When it comes to seamless day-to-night styling, it's usually the quintessential LBD or LWD that comes to mind, but Katie Holmes surprised us with a bold orange number that's making us think twice about the versatility of supersaturated hues. Her bright dress had a distinctly summery feel about it, thanks to laid-back draped-front details, a sexy leg slit, and an even sexier nude slip peeking through. While Katie nailed the evening look, pairing the sheath with a blue and white clutch and nude T-strap sandals, we think this dress could easily make the rounds during the day. Just switch out the heels for a flat strappy sandal or jute-soled ballet flat, and trade in the sleek clutch for a cream-colored shoulder bag or a straw tote. The key to a successful casual-to-cocktail transition is to let the color make a statement, but never overwhelm the finished look. Need a little more inspiration?
