WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

Ah, August, the official start to the last month of summer. One last month of weekends home with friends and guaranteed heat and comfort. Perfect time to break out that T-shirt dress. Shouldn’t we all be absolutely owning our summers in style? Without the everyday stresses of class, most of us are putting our efforts into our weekly jobs and making plans for the weekend. Maybe… a walk around town and dinner with friends? Here’s what this Fashionista did for this occasion.

Sometimes, being basic is necessary, and T-shirt dresses are just that! One simple pop-over piece with versatility, this T-shirt dress can be admired for its breathable texture fit for the summer weather. This Fashionista chose one with shape for a classy look. Rather than the average straight cotton dress, this marble gray piece was flexible, with a flared bottom and capped sleeves, offering the look both structure and elegance.

With a few accessories, like your favorite Alex and Ani bangles, a large but muted necklace and some sparkly sandals, you’ve got yourself a look capable of lunches, dinners, graduation parties, summer concerts or wherever else your weekend plans may find you!

One Simple Change: As the summer day sets into a summer night, the temperature may drop and the plans may change. That means one of two things: layer for outdoor hangouts, or change the shoes for a night out. Add your favorite flannel and baseball cap for a cozy backyard bonfire, or a bold lipstick and heels for a girl’s night out!
