It’s the weekend. You know the street is the real runway. Its time to bring it. You’ve got to live these next two days like a shoot from Vogue Magazine. Rock that poppy colored lipstick, use that dayglo shadow, pump up the volume on your hair and get funky with your nails. If you’re looking for some ideas to get your fashion freak on this weekend, look no further. Here are some fun weekend fashion ideas for ending the week in the right way.
Howdy, partner. If you’ve been doing your fashion homework, you may have noticed a little western style revival going on. The Fall and 2017 and 2018 fashion houses have been incorporating a little of the wild west into their fashion lines, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t too. But don’t pick up the lasso just yet. Remember, you don’t want to go full on cowgirl here. A plaid shirt here, a bolo tie there, some cowboy boots, or embroidered jeans should be enough to send the message.
We know you’re reluctant to part with your skinny jeans, but if you saw Gigi Hadid getting out of her limo in her two piece hot pink skintight leather moto jacket and bellbottom ensemble, you may want to start rethinking your game. So what are the rules for rocking these high fashion flares? Keep shirts to crop length or cinched waist, and get the most from the leg lengthening potential with some block heels or mules, although Converse will also do the trick for a more carefree vibe. Just make sure to keep the toe of the shoe interesting.
Socks are one of the less expensive ways of making a fashion statement. You may have seen the ultra feminine Prada feather hemmed skirt, paired with knee high soccer socks, or the Gucci’s cruise outing featuring the controversial glittery socks printed with the GG logo. Just pull em high, wear them over tights with metallic pumps or even loafers. Valentino even had his models sliding their striped socks under their T-strap sandals.
The Going Out Top
Otherwise known as the “Carrie Bradshaw,” the going out top refers to the tube tops, lingerie inspired camisoles, and embellished halter tops of the 2000’s which now seem to be enjoying a resurgence. However, resist the creative urge to reinvent; according to Vogue Market Editor Chelsea Zalopany, it is still a piece best paired with jeans. Although it has undergone controversy for its underwear as outerwear reputation, Zalopany says, “I think just accept and own that the noughties did it right. There’s no shame in an oldie but goodie.”
The Vintage T
The vintage T may just be “the” urban wardrobe statement, which is why it can create such a great foil to the ultra classy, ultra feminine clothing pieces. While you can’t go wrong with a vintage T and denim, with the right touches, the T can be transformed to meet almost any fashion situation. They can be dressed up with a sheer skirt and jacket, placed under a blazer for a power brunch, or paired with a pencil skirt for an out of the box take on an old classic.
