WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

April 10th, 2015 at 2:10am

Recently, I have found myself checking the calendar to count down the weeks until summer. There is nothing I would like more than to be able to sit outside and soak up the sun. Until that glorious time comes, the weekends are prime prep time. Saturday and Sunday can be used to plan those vacations, DIY your little heart out and,most importantly, relax in between classes and work. There is no better way to embrace that R&R time than with an effortless casual look that will carry you through a busy weekend. This week’s Fashionista shows us how to utilize basics without skimping on style.

She is rocking the military trend from head to toe. Her army green utility jacket is perfect for spring layering and can easily be carried into the warmer months this summer. This piece is a great alternative to a bulky and often unwieldy rain coat during the spring and summer rain showers. The military feel is carried through in this pair of brown leather ankle boots. With the clean lines and no fuss design, these boots are ideal for a casual weekend out.

The clean lines continue with a pair of dark wash jeans from American Eagle and a simple white T-shirt. These pieces are classic, chic and can be easily customized to fit your style. This Fashionista chose to amp things up a bit by adding a bold pendant necklace. The gold finish and subtle colors add a little fun and flirty vibe to an otherwise minimal look.

Remember, the weekends are a time for taking a step away from reality and to remind yourself that summer is indeed on its way. Find your ideal weekend uniform and incorporate versatile pieces for a seamless transition.

One Simple Change: Top off your weekend with a girl’s night out! Swap your boots for a pair of nude strappy sandals. Add a brightly colored clutch in a tribal pattern for a pop of personality and you are ready to hit the town.
