WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

As a student, there is nothing better than the freedom that the weekend brings. Not only does the end of the week provide a much needed break from class, but it also gives us a chance to cross a few things off our to-do list, clear our heads and have a little fun. This holds even more true in the summer when internships and jobs often take up the majority of our time, leaving the weekend as the only time to catch up with our lives and catch a few rays of sunshine.

Because of its fleeting nature, it is imperative that precious weekend time is not wasted. While your entire week is probably spent in office appropriate clothing, the weekend is the time to let loose and not stress about your outfit for a couple of days. But while it’s easy to simply roll out of bed and go, it’s also important to avoid looking like a slob—no matter what day of the week it happens to be. Fortunately, this Fashionista provides a weekend-friendly outfit that’s perfect for even the laziest days of summer.

Sporting a pair of high-waisted cut-off shorts and a plain black tank top, this Fashionista’s ensemble is a lesson in simplicity. Whether she’s running around town or going to the beach, her outfit provides the perfect canvas for any situation while still being wonderfully easy. No matter if she needs to throw a bathing suit underneath or a rain coat on top, she’s ready to transition into any situation she encounters. Her sneakers and sunglasses are a perfect addition, giving her a sensible (but cute!) way to be even more prepared for her days. The finishing touches—her cross-body bag and watch—add a bit of flair to the simple look.

Whether you’re heading out on a road trip or sunbathing in the park, it’s hard to go wrong with an outfit like this. Simply throw on some jean shorts and a tank top and you can be out the door in a few seconds flat. Add a few cute but sensible accessories to the mix and you’ll be perfectly prepared to enjoy the summer sun to the fullest.

One Simple Change: Going on vacation? Add an oversized bag and a fun hat and you’re ready to hit the beach (or any other sunny destination) in style.
