As the song says, “Everybody’s working for the weekend!” At least, we know we are. Two whole days and a couple nights of free time mean plenty of opportunities to fill your social calendar with all the activities you didn’t have time for during the week. Of course, planning your weekend activities also requires putting together the perfect outfits for each occasion. No more hiding your clothes behind a desk—the weekend is the perfect time to let your fashion sense shine.
Perfecting your weekend style takes a little bit of work. During the work week, you probably have staple pieces that are office-appropriate and comfortable enough to wear for hours on end. With a much larger range of activities available to you outside of work, however, you need multiple pieces that can ensure your weekend style is on-point, no matter the occasion.
Thankfully, we know what you need for every free time pursuit. Keep reading for our weekend style guide that can help you plan the perfect outfit for all your off-duty activities.
Friday Night Dinner
After a long and tiring week at work, committing to a wild Friday night is probably the last thing you want to do. However, the appeal of turning off your alarm clock is surprisingly effective encouragement to get out of the house and enjoy a nice evening. Dinner, either with friends or with a significant other, is the perfect way to wind down after a long week. It’s social and fun, but you can still get to bed at a reasonable hour and catch up on all the sleep your work week stole from you.
When it comes to weekend style, dinner is the easiest activity to dress for. Cute and comfortable are basically the only requirements for a nice dinner outfit. We always like taking advantage of the clothes that you probably wouldn’t wear to work. Luxurious fabrics and comfortable fits allow you to feel at ease while you chill out after a long week, but it also creates a stunning outfit that guarantees you’ll stand out. Pair your dress with a cute pair of shoes and you have a night-ready outfit that’ll make you feel nearly as comfortable as staying home in your PJs.
Saturday Morning Errands
Besides allowing you to don clothes you would never wear to work, your weekend style is also the perfect time to embrace a more laid-back look. Instead of button downs, pencil skirts, and heels, you can lounge around in comfy clothes that will give you a more relaxed vibe. And what’s more comfortable than athleisure? Stretchy, loose-fitting clothes are perfect for running Saturday morning errands that you just couldn’t get done during the week. After all, if you have to jump from store to store making sure your home is stocked with the necessities, you better be as comfortable as humanly possible.
Every athleisure ensemble starts with a good pair of tennis shoes. Consider sneakers with a splash of color to add pizzazz to any look. Pair your shoes with stretch-friendly bottoms. Black leggings look great and are cozy enough to wear all year round. Finish your look with an oversized jacket that’ll keep you warm and comfortable on your outdoor adventure. Get something with a hoodie top and you’ve got an outfit perfect for lazy days when putting on real clothes feels like far too big of a commitment. In this outfit, running errands will be a breeze.
Saturday Night Drinks
Now that you’ve started your weekend off with plenty of time to relax, it’s time to have a little fun. Every off-duty gal needs a night of drinks on the town, which demands a very different kind of outfit. Grabbing Saturday night drinks is the perfect time to bring some sultry appeal to your weekend style.
We like to start with a cute pair of bottoms that show off your figure. Look for something form-fitting and trendy, but still comfortable enough to last through an entire evening out. You’ll want to pair your bottoms with a shirt that also compliments your figure, like this a black bodysuit. Finally, finish off the ensemble with an elongating pair of heels. Altogether, you have an outfit that’s chic and stylish but manages to highlight your assets—perfect for an evening on the town.
Sunday Morning Brunch
Brunch is the cardinal weekend activity, ideal for catching up with your girlfriends, enjoying a few cocktails, and sneaking in one last fun activity before you head back into the work week. It’s time to dress to impress, making brunch your ultimate moment to pull out all the stops when it comes to your weekend style.
Chic, trendy pieces are the key to a good brunch outfit. That’s why we love embracing a fashion-forward romper that keeps things comfy, but still ensures you’re on top of the style game. A cute romper needs an equally cute pair of heels to match. Complete your look with a cute accessory, like a tan Panama hat and you’ve got a summery look perfect for any Sunday morning brunch.
Lazy Sunday Evening
After brunch is done, it’s time to unwind and prepare for the week ahead of you. Whether you need to meal prep, organize your work supplies, or you’re planning on lounging in front of the TV for a few hours, you need comfy clothes that will melt away all your Sunday evening anxiety.
For a lazy Sunday evening at home, there’s no escaping the comfort of joggers. Add an oversized shirt and you’ve rounded out a fashionable weekend style. Now you’re ready to lounge around and ignore the responsibilities of the week ahead of you, at least for a few more hours.
