Assembling the ultimate weekend wardrobe
The dates may only be five days, but those 120 hours can really start to add up by the end of the work-week. When the weekend arrives, it’s hard not to walk out of work throwing your files and papers in the air like an elementary student after the bell rings. When your two-day sanctuary finally turns up, it’s important to adhere to the many fashion phases that can arise from Saturday to Sunday. Here’s a go-to guide for how to assemble the ideal weekend wardrobe for all the stages of your temporary vacation:
Slip into Saturday
Just because the weekend is here doesn’t mean there isn’t work to be done. If you prefer to get your chores out of the way first so you have the rest of the weekend to relax, you’ll want a look that’s fit to be as active as you’re feeling. Keep things casual but still lively by slipping into some activewear, such as relaxed pants and athletic shoes so you can turn shopping carts or a lawnmower on a dime. A hoodie or pullover is the essential top for running errands and getting at-home tasks completed before the real weekend kicks in Saturday night.
The night is young
After you’ve rolled up your sleeves and broken a sweat, freshen up and prepare to dress to impress. Saturday night is the one evening of the week where you should feel inspired to wear your closet’s best, so dare to be dashing in a black Lace Trim Dress that will fit you just about as well as you’ll look.
If your Saturday evening consists of a more toned down ambiance, you can still look great in some Lola jeans with a knit top that’s laid back enough for a casual get-together with friends but still displays a hint of avidity.
Good morning indeed
There are essentially two types of Sunday people: those who take advantage of their last day of freedom to pursue tons of interests and activities, and those who are simply looking forward to lounging. We’ll go with the latter for this one, and if you don’t already own a go-to robe for couch cuddling and channel surfing, it’s time to enlighten yourself. If the robe is too much, stick with the traditional sweater and black leggings look, which is practically essential fall season wear for whipping up nachos and salsa during the big football game.
