It’s Friday and the weekend is on its way. Thankfully. Unless your plans include a dinner date, weekend style is generally all about keeping it casual. However, that doesn’t have to mean boring and plain. Here are five ideas for adding a little bit of an edge to your casual style this weekend.
Layered denim jacket. One of my favorite uses for a denim jacket and a currently a trend that I’m happy to see returning this winter. If it fits properly – snug around your torso – it’ll keep the warmth in and the wind out.
Turtleneck. I’m going to keep preaching this gospel. Turtlenecks are only stuffy if you’re stuffy. I love how they add some elegance and refinement even to casual looks.
Silk scarf. Less for the warmth, more for the style. In the cold we’ve been experiencing, a silk scarf is not going to keep you warm. At all. However, if the rest of your look is built around neutrals, you can use it to add in a bit of color and interest. The vintage piece I’m wearing is a very odd length – only about 18″ – but tucks in nicely to the denim jacket.
Standout sneakers. Other than my running shoes, I have exactly two pairs of sneakers. A simple pair of white leather low tops that you’ve seen many times and this more distinctive pair of black suede and patent leather Lanvins. A little more luxe. A little more unique. A little more grown up. These aren’t for everyday wear, but I like to pull them out when I’m feeling a bolder and want to make a bit of a statement.
Thanks for reading.
