WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

The weekends give you time to catch up with friends, run errands, relax and try out fun new fashion trends. What better time to give that edgy new item that you’ve been nervous to wear a test run than in front of your BFFs or just while hanging out around town? This Fashionista nails a tricky trend that I’ve been wanting to try out myself.

Shredded boyfriend jeans are an edgy way to wear denim. These super distressed jeans are a little intimidating, but can be easily toned down with neutrals and feminine details. For this look, a basic black T-shirt keeps the look feeling effortless and casual. Simple black sandals add a feminine, sophisticated touch. A big floppy hat is not only chic, but a must for sun protection on brutally hot days. It’s no coincidence that I keep photographing Fashionistas in hats; they’re the easiest fix for a bad hair day. No one will be able to tell if your hair is getting a little bit frizzy in this Chicago humidity. This look is completed with a carry-all tote bag that’s perfect for running errands on a busy Saturday. I love the contrast of the white bag with the other black accessories. Last time I checked, there was no rule that says your bag has to match your shoes!

One Simple Change: Want to transition this look for night? Trade the T-shirt for a luxe metallic tank and the tote for an oversized leather clutch. Add minimal ankle strap heels if desired.
