Honing your weekend look is all about three things. Figuring out how to: 1) Look put together in the least amount of time possible 2) Be comfortable so you can cover some major ground (errands, concerts, brunch, etc.) 3) Refer back to item #1.
As much as I love getting dressed, I for one do not like to spend my spare weekend moments standing in front of my closet figuring out what to wear. My hair needs to take all of 3 minutes. A little Bumble & Bumble; Hair tucks highly encouraged. And makeup? Concealer, mascara, lip gloss..done.
A curated selection of great sweaters is a main component of my winter weekend style. These Banana Republic turtlenecks are on major sale right now. They’re 50% off and come in just about every color from pink to green. I have them in navy, grey & creme. Also loving so many Madewell options including this cozy, rose quartz knit and this oversized camel crewneck. And if you want to spice things up a bit? Layer, layer, layer. Toss your sweater over a patterned or striped top and allow the pattern to peek out from the bottom.
Next up is dressing your bottom half. I absolutely love oversized pieces but I tend to keep either the top or bottom of my outfit more form-fitting to make sure it all stays balanced, not sloppy. This particular combination is a bit of an anomaly for me..boxy on top, oversized on the bottom. My saving grace however is these Rag & Bone Dre jeans. They are my absolute go-to boyfriend style. I’m relatively petite, so I need a style that doesn’t overpower my frame.. and these have been the ticket. Slipping into them and even a somewhat oversized top is all kinds of right.
Now that your basics are covered, it’s time to pull it all together with a few accessories. An easy way to pull everything together is to simply add a great heel. It doesn’t have to be high, but a chic bootie with a two inch stack can do wonders for adding a little polish. Or opt for an ankle-wrap flat with some personality. Grab your favorite pair of sunnies, a crossbody, and voila. Dressed and ready to go in 5 minutes. No muss, no fuss.
