I used to look forward to weekends until they became just as busy as any other day of the week. At the beginning of the semester, there was more time to relax, take naps and catch up on TV shows whose names will not be mentioned. Now that we’ve reached the peak of the semester, the weekends are a time for work. Dressing practically is key for hectic weekends because you never know what you’ll end up having to do.
Today’s Fashionista is wearing a functional look that can take her from a morning walk with her dog to an afternoon studying to a night of babysitting. She keeps things simple with high-waisted black jeans (which really emphasize her long legs), black studded ankle boots, a teal turtleneck and a warm, puffy vest. If you’ve got an eventful weekend, you don’t want to be burdened with too many layers and extra accessories to worry about.
If your next Saturday or Sunday is jam packed with things to do, follow this Fashionista’s simple formula for a stylishly practical ensemble. Start off with some high-waisted jeans. You can stick with a darker color palette with a pair of burgundy jeans. Next, tuck in a long sleeve shirt and find a vest that will keep you warm during your long day. Since a casual lunch or dinner could sneak its way into your weekend plans, go for for a stylish pair of boots. Keep your accessories simple like she did and add a plain necklace for a finishing touch.
One Simple Change: Swap out the vest for a cozy, oversized cardigan. You’ll be comfortable for a day full of midterms without sacrificing your style.
