WHAT TO WEAR: Weekends

What to Wear

With busy schedules, assignments and midterms, there’s hardly any time to relax. Every college student looks forward to the freedom that the weekend brings. It’s a time to let loose, de-stress and have fun. By the time the weekend comes I’m exhausted, and I just want to stay in my PJs all day. But one way or another, I have to leave the comforts of my bed and see the world. It’s great to get comfortable and relax during the weekends, but don’t lose your Fashionista sparkle on Saturdays.

Alexander Wang once said, “Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress on their days off that are most intriguing.” Dress your best all week long and don’t give into the temptation of staying in your pajamas. Take some tips from this week’s Fashionista who had perfect weekend ensemble. Her look is not only stylish but incredibly easy to put together.

This Fashionista chose to wear a pair of paisley printed leggings. Printed leggings are everywhere, from the runways to Whitney Port and Beyoncé’s closet. This particular print reminds me of the ad campaign for DKNY featuring Cara Delevingne. Printed leggings are a nice update to the classic solid colored leggings. To wear printed leggings, keep your top neutral. This draws the attention to the leggings. More importantly, it will prevent you from looking like a mix and match catastrophe.

Graphic prints are another big trend this season, just ask this Fashionista who rocks a tiger embellished sweatshirt. Many brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs and J.Crew have been putting animal graphics on sweatshirts. These graphics either make the sweatshirt look cute, charming or edgy depending on the animal. Although this Fashionista’s sweatshirt has a graphic on it, it’s still simple enough to pair with her leggings.

She accessorized with a simple black beanie. Sometimes on weekends I’ll sleep in too late. Often times I’ll find myself rushing to meet my friends. Wearing a beanie hides the potential mess of not having the time to do your hair. To complete her look, she wore a pair of black riding boots. The boots added a leather edge to her overall look, giving her outfit a rocker chic vibe.

Sweatshirts and leggings are perfect for running errands or hanging out with friends during the weekend. However, this Fashionista switched up the typical weekend uniform and wore printed leggings with a graphic print sweatshirt. Try swapping out your basics with prints and graphics. So take note of this Fashionista’s comfy weekend outfit, put those PJs away and make your weekends a lot more stylish!

One Simple Change: To make the outfit more dressy, layer a white button-down under the sweatshirt.
