Weekend or off-duty looks might be the most casual and comfortable style you might have, especially if you’re a career woman dressed in a business suit all the time. However, weekend looks don’t have to forgo your great sense of style.

Take the denim fashion up a notch.
Denim items seem to be the most casual and cool pieces, but it doesn’t have to take away the sophistication from you. Skip those distressed denim jeans, skirt, and shorts this weekend and resort to chambray dresses, blazers, and shirts. Like Geneva, you may go for a pair of chic chambray shorts that can go well with your sailor blazer and sleek top, or opt for a chambray blazer that looks modern with your most basic outfits. Also, teaming your chambray shirts with chic bottoms can make your weekend style more fashionable.
Look effortlessly chic with rompers and matching sets.
If blouses and skirts seem too dressy for you, resort to jumpsuits, rompers, and matching sets that look chic without looking complicated. In the summer, you may embrace eyelet rompers, white matching sets, and breezy outfits that will help you beat the heat with style. Just complete your looks with a pair of summer sandals, tote bag, or saddlebag to keep the overall look laid back and cool like Geneva did.
Mix your office basics with casual pieces.
If you wish to create a casual-chic style, think of your office basics like a button-down shirt, straight-leg pants, boxy culottes, structured blazer, wide leg pants and such that can dress up your casual pieces. Like Geneva, create a stylish weekend look with a casual top teamed with white trousers, or a chic tank top paired with a pleated full skirt. Just balance your proportions by selecting the right footwear with your bottom pieces. For instance, a pair of ankle strap sandals will go well with culottes over gladiator sandals, while a pair of pumps will fit perfectly your midi skirt over strappy sandals.
Add some flair with colors and prints.
Summer is all about punchy colors and loud prints so incorporate them into your weekend look to add some flair to your street style. Like Geneva, team a brightly-colored bandeau top with a pair of printed shorts, or add a pop of color with your saddlebag on your neutral outfits of a tee and casual skirt. Indeed, spicing up your weekend looks will make you look more expressive and fashion-forward on the streets.
