After a week (or four days, depending on if you have Friday classes) of lectures, assignments and maybe a few exams, throwing on baggy clothes and catching up on Netflix seems instinctive. While weekends give you time to unwind, they don’t excuse a sloppy appearance. When you venture from your bed, take off the sweatpant—I promise you can achieve comfort without them.
This Fashionista knows weekend wear, from her army-green winter jacket to her matching cognac scarf and boots. By layering items that offer both comfort and warmth, she creates an effortlessly chic ensemble appropriate for laid back weekend activities. The outfit’s earthy neutral tones take on a boho feel, which mimics the carefree weekend attitude we crave during the week.
The key to achieving a stylish and cozy weekend look lies within the basic garments. For those who despise wearing pants, make leggings your go-to and pair them with an oversized sweater or loose top like this Fashionista. Throw on a chunky, knit scarf and you’ll feel like you’re still snuggled up in bed. Winter automatically decides your footwear: boots. Combat boots offer comfort and toughen up the look with their rugged feel. Choosing a pair with a heel like this Fashionista adds extra flair. Since Mother Nature isn’t ready to grant us warm weather, outerwear should add to your look, not detract from it. Make a statement like this Fashionista with a military-inspired winter jacket. Choosing a bold coat style or color is an easy way to make a statement without putting in extra time (read: more time in warm bed).
This weekend don’t wait for the sun to set to show off your style. Ditch the sweats, layer up and flaunt your relaxed and stylish ensemble.
One Simple Change: A simple shoe swap makes this outfit perfect for running errands. Opt for a flat pair of boots to ensure comfort all day long.
