WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 14th, 2015 at 2:00am

The ever anticipated weekend is seemingly spread out over more than two days as summer is now in full effect and school is not a day to day priority. In other words, almost every day during summer vacation is like a Saturday or Sunday for most of us. That being said, casual lounge wear that you might have sported to your 8:00 a.m. Biology class can be swapped out for a fashionable outfit fit for a day of adventure. Whether it be a morning spent having brunch with a view and a handful of friends or happy hour at your local Gastropub, there are endless possibilities when it comes to attire.

This Fashionista exhibits what I consider to be the perfect weekend attire, as her outfit is both casual and trendy, yet suitable for her day spent outside. Her split hem chambray dress and chunky platform sandals go perfectly with her simple but elegant gold crescent moon necklace. She keeps her look summer appropriate with her neutral color scheme and adds a pop of color via her neon peach toe nail polish.

One Simple Change: If you’re deciding to take this outfit from day to night, play up the face with darker colors by using either smokey eye makeup or a bold vampy lipstick. In addition, swap out lighter hued accessories for darker shades, i.e. a black handbag or clutch catered to your personal taste. On top of these things, choosing the appropriate outerwear will give the look more of a nighttime feel. Pairing the chambray with a black cropped jacket will give this look a day to night edge.
