WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

TGIF! It is safe to say that Friday is a day we all look forward to because it means one thing—the weekend is finally here. Furthermore, it is typically associated with trading the stiff and formal office attire with your favorite pair of blue jean shorts or loose shirt. However, this Fashionista is living the best of both worlds, feeling comfortable yet accomplishing the effortlessly chic style.

I captured this Fashionista on the streets wearing a unique neoprene animal print skirt. The pleats add flare and body to this look, incorporating a feminine touch. Originally designed as a two-piece set, this Fashionista decided to ditch the matching crop top and pair it with an oversized J.Crew shirt. This change creates a more relaxed look for the weekend. To enhance her ensemble away from this slightly tomboyish look, she adds a pair of classic Converse sneakers. In contrast to the boyish shirt and sneakers, she carries a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag with gold-chained shoulder straps to add some glam. Topping off her look, she displays a gold necklace by Rebecca Minkoff embellished in a delicate fringe. This outfit could not have been styled any better. She creates the ultimate balance of casual with a funky and chic twist.

This Fashionista’s outfit of choice is appropriate for the weekend because it is laid back and the pleated skirt adds a bit of dressiness. It is also versatile for many weekend activities such as strolling the park, brunching with your girls or even a casual date night.

One Simple Change: To make this ensemble dressy, throw on a fitted tank top to coordinate with the skirt, and switch your sneakers for a pair of summer sandals or wedges.
