WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

With the semester in full swing and midterms right around the corner, the phrase TGIF has never rang more true. After a full week of classes, homework and extracurricular activities, people will be welcoming the weekend with open arms. The weekend is a time to relax and take a break from the stresses of schoolwork, but that doesn’t mean you should slack on style. Take a tip from this Fashionista who has perfected the weekend wear look.

While sweatpants and an old T-shirt are appropriate for binge watching Netflix, you want to step up your style game if your weekend plans involve you leaving the couch. This Fashionista has created a look that is casual, cool and comfortable, making it a great choice for a weekend out and about.

This Fashionista chose a simple pair of black leggings and a basic black tank top. She then added a checkered black and white button-down shirt to give her look more dimension. The pattern really pops against the black basics. She complemented the rest of her outfit with a pair of suede, wedge sneakers, which is the perfect combination of casual and cool. A pair of aviator sunglasses completed her look and added an effortlessly edgy element to her outfit.

Whether you find yourself grabbing a bite to eat with friends, running errands or checking out a local band, you want your weekend wear to be laid back and effortless. Keep it simple and add statement pieces to basics, such as leggings or jeans, to create an outfit that is both comfortable and cute.

Remember, when you are struggling to get through a long week of tests, papers and presentations—the weekend is coming.

One Simple Change: Love this weekend look so much you want to rock it during the school week? Swap out the wedge sneakers for a pair of simple flats and throw on a chic backpack to carry your books!
