Hello, Gorgeous! I’m so happy you stopped by Blush & Camo because in celebration of Evy’s Tree releasing their new Addyson style hoodie, I’m sharing 6 ways you can perfect your weekend style. Weekends are typically for more casual outfits, but just because your look is casual doesn’t mean you have to compromise your personal style:).
Keep reading to find out what style tips you can start incorporating into your weekend looks!
1.) KEEP YOUR LOOK COMFORTABLE
This is my number one tip because over the weekends Blush Babes are running errands, hanging out with friends, and lounging around the house. You don’t want to wear anything that is uncomfortable doing any of those activities. Plus, sometimes your work clothes aren’t the coziest, so treat yourself to an outfit that feels amazing!
My go to brand for creating cozy but chic looks is Evy’s Tree because their sweatshirts are simply amazing. I talked about this brand in a blog post first here.
2.) ACCENTUATE YOUR WAISTLINE
During the week you may wear clothes that don’t show off the amazing curves you’re working with! I totally fall into this category (I wear my Army uniform 5 days a week and it is not the most figure flattering attire!).
The weekends are the perfect time to accentuate your waist! This is the tiniest part of your torso area and for that reason it’s always a great place to show off! Ways to achieve this are tying a belt around your cardigan or blanket scarf (I did this here), tucking in your shirt, or wearing an A-Line dress.
I accentuated my waistline in this look by using the belt for my Addyson hoodie! This is quick and simple way to stay comfortable and stylish!
3.) ADD IN A CLASSIC PATTERN
Mixing in patterns is a great way to break up your look and instantly increase your weekend chic factor. Patterns that are considered classics are stripes, floral, and leopard print!
These patterns can be worn during any season and sometimes mix and matched! I added stripes for this look to add more dimension to my overall outfit since my Evy’s Tree sweatshirt is a solid color.
4.) HAVE A PAIR OF TIMELESS SHOES YOU LOVE
Since the weekends are a time for expressing your personal style (since many of us Blush Babes aren’t able to during the work week) I recommend having a pair of timeless shoes you can pair with just about any look! You also want them to be comfortable:).
These timeless shoes depend on your own personal style and what you lean towards. For example, I am a flats girl and tend to not wear heels unless it’s for a special occasion. So my timeless shoes are a pair of Chanel flats that can be dressed up or down and worn with just about any color.
You totally do NOT have to spurge on a pair of shoes like this (unless you want to!) but it’s a great idea to have that pair of heels or flats that make you feel amazing no matter what you are wearing and you can rock them all day without your feet hurting.
5.) ADD YOUR “MILLION DOLLAR” ELEMENT
It’s so important when wearing comfortable clothing over the weekend that you still feel like a million dollars even if you’re wearing a sweatshirt. Think about what a time when you put an outfit on that made you feel like a “million dollars”.
Was it because you were wearing your hair or makeup a certain way? Did you splurge on an item that you were proud you saved for? Is this “million dollar” element having your nails freshly painted for the weekend?!
Whatever your “million dollar” element is make sure you incorporate that into your weekend outfit! For me, this element is wearing a bold lip color- usually in red!
This tip is so important because nothing is more chic than a women with confidence and owning her outfit! 🙂
6.) ADD ONE ELEMENT TO PUSH YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
The weekends are for experimenting and expressing your personal style! This is the perfect time to incorporate a beauty or style trend into your look you have been wanting to try.
Maybe this is trying out a new hairstyle or practicing the newest beauty trend of contouring! This new “element” doesn’t have to be bold like rocking a purple faux fur jacket. It can be as simple as trying on a new lip color. The important thing is that you are trying new things to potentially add to your personal style!
