WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

June 10th, 2015 at 2:10am

Come Friday you can always catch me humming along to The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love”. No, it’s not because I’ve fallen head over heels in love with a pair of pointed toe pumps, rather it marks the start of the weekend; the exclamation point of the week! I mean after a rigorous week of balancing summer classes, jobs and internships, we’ve earned a little fun by the time the weekend rolls around. So while you’re busy dreaming about what this weekend will bring, don’t forget to make sure your outfit is as bold as your plans.

As for this Fashionista, she’s ready for a Saturday out and about. Last minute errands or a coffee date with a friend, she’s dressed to take on anything that comes her way. Her denim shirt and distressed jeans give her look an effortless feel, accentuated by the greys and silvers found in her jewelry and shirt buttons. Layering the denim shirt allows her to have a more dynamic look that can be easily adapted for the weather by tying it around the waist. Choosing to pair this look with worn, washed out jeans adds an edgy, tomboy element to create a laidback vibe, perfect for exploring the city on a whim.

This Fashionista brings her outfit to life with a neon green tank to contrast the denim. Adding a pop of color gives this ensemble an electric spark that modernizes the look; creating a focal point to draw the eye. Neon is great for spicing up classic looks to keep things interesting–even while running errands. She ties the outfit together with a pair of light-colored Converse and a white dome handbag to continue this weekend warrior’s trendy, carefree feel.

The Cure definitely had it right, “It’s Friday I’m in Love (with this look).”

One Simple Change: Want to add an upscale flare to this laidback look? Swap out the denim shirt for a boyfriend blazer and ditch the Converse to opt for a pair of oxfords instead. Add a neon bag for a splash of personality and you are ready to celebrate the weekend with a girl’s night out.
