WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

Summer is slowing down and school stress is kicking in at an alarming rate right about now. Sure, it’s exciting to see your friends and get excited over new classes but at what cost? Homework, tests and meetings take up so much of our time that every so often we need to clear a weekend up to just do our own thing! The problem with having an unstructured weekend is having no idea about what to wear. Do you wear leggings and a T-shirt for lounging? Maybe a nice pair of jeans with a cute jacket for hanging out with friends. There are too many choices and not enough time to try them all out in this perfect weather.

This Fashionista slayed weekend wear with this versatile plaid dress and booties. It’s casual enough for lunch with the ladies while put-together enough to let people know you didn’t just spend the night before watching TV on your laptop until 2:00 a.m. The shirt dress style is perfect for brisk fall days because it is comfy and warm. The plaid print is a classic autumn trend and great for creating visual interest in an otherwise simple outfit. Paired with brown-gray ankle booties and a cross-body purse, the dress stands out as the main attraction. Thin, stacked rings, for accessorizing, add another layer of chicness to the ensemble. This outfit is fantastic because it can literally be worn anywhere from farmer’s markets to casual hang outs.

One Simple Change: So maybe it’s a little later in the fall season and the temperatures have dropped; what’s a girl to do? Well, you could start by layering a black leather jacket on top for added warmth and street-chic cool. The jacket will give the outfit a bit more structure as well by defining your shape and mixing fabrics.
