If you’re like most people, the daily 9-5 grind often makes you look forward to the weekend. Even though you might have responsibilities at home, weekends are a time to relax, get together with friends and spend time with your children. Weekends are for unwinding and partaking in your favourite activities. This means pulling out pieces from your closet that work for weekend style.
Most weekend style is more casual than what you wear to the office. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your look by changing the style of your outfit. When you think about weekend wear, what comes to mind? I’ll bet it’s jeans. After all, jeans are probably the most versatile, comfortable piece of clothing that there is. And most of the time, jeans are associated with casual style. It makes sense then, that when the weekend hits, you are usually sporting a pair of denim. So how can you wear jeans for your favourite weekend activities? Let’s take a look at three different ways to jump into your jeans for the weekend.
Playing At the Park
On days when the weather outside is nice, a trip to the park with the kiddos is a great weekend activity. And since any activity involving children and/or the great outdoors can get messy, your outfit should reflect something super casual. The best types of jeans for a park play date are:
- Straight leg style jeans, cuffed at the bottom
- Skinny jeans with ripped detailing
- Capri style jeans
Basically any casual style of jeans that are comfortable, casual and still fashionable. You don’t need to wear mum jeans just because you’re a mum. The style of jeans that you choose will partially depend on the weather. And the pieces that you pair with your jeans should also follow these rules. On a hot day, a comfortable tank top is a great choice. In cooler weather, you can’t go wrong with a basic tee. Flats, sneakers and sandals are your best bets for footwear.
Even though Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, Sunday brunch calls for a dressier look than most other weekend festivities. You don’t need to go overboard, but you want to step up your style. An easy way to do that with jeans is to wear a coloured pair like pastel pink. The light colour is sweet, so your look won’t be too intense. Pair with a feminine top in coordinating colours to keep the look consistent.
If you aren’t into coloured jeans, another option is to go with a dark wash denim and pair with a colourful top. Make sure the top is not too casual. Complete the look with a nice pair of sandals or dressy flats and very simple jewellery.
Girls Night Out
One of the times that weekend wear should not be casual is girls’ night out. Even if you aren’t hitting up the local bars to scope out the hotties, dressing up for girls’ night makes you feel more confident, so you enjoy yourself more. This is your chance to bring out your sexy side and let loose before going back to work on Monday morning.
When it comes to jeans for girls’ night out, here is what to look for:
- Jeans that accentuate your curves
- Jeans with cute/fun patterns
- Jeans in a fun colour
You can be a little bolder in your jeans style for girls’ night out. You want to look and feel your best, so find a pair that fits well and looks good on you. If the weather allows for it, wear a top that shows some skin. You still want to dress for your age, but something like a sleeveless top is an easy way to add some sexy to your look. You can also take some risks with your shoes. Go with some sassy heels for a look that is both sexy and fun.
It doesn’t matter what your plans for the weekend are, there is a pair of jeans perfect for whatever you’ve got on your calendar. From an afternoon at the park to a night out dancing with the girls, you’ve got something to look forward to this weekend. Now that you’ve got some ideas for creating the perfect weekend jeans style, it’s time to start counting down the days until you can put your favourite pair of denim on.
