Hello, my friends! Weekend is usually a busier time for us, running between kids activities to friends gatherings. An outfit that is casual and stylish, daytime appropriate but transitional to evening, would be ideal for a busy weekend day. Our mission today is to explore ways to accomplish such an outfit.
First word came in mind was: casual. What is casual? Oversized, unstructured, knits, sneakers, things we feel comfortable in. I so picked a few go-to comfy items as the base of this outfit, wide-leg culottes, sneakers and a chunky knit bomber that match the culottes in volume.
The next task is to add style. The word “style” has been used a lot but what does it really entail? To me, it means something special, and intended to be so. For today’s look, my intention is to make it (almost) monochrome, so even very casual piece, they make a good statement together because they amplify each other color-wise.
For an outfit to go from day to night, there should be an element of glam, not over done though to keep it weekend-proof. I went with one of this year hottest trend, off shoulder top, and paired with a brooch choker, for that touch of glam. The top is actually a button down shirt (I wore it before here, here and here), what I did was wore it as a strapless and secure it by tieing the sleeves around my waist.
If you prefer a more streamlined look or just want to wear the top without the cardigan, try turn the blouse around and have the collar in the front and tie around you back instead. For those who are not fan of choker, a statement necklace focus on the collar-bone or a skinny scarf would create the same visual effect.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you are inspired to create your own weekend glam look. See you in my next post!
