The Weekend Essentials Every Cool-Girl Needs

Get the look

1. The Lip

Margot Robbie makes a case for a bold red lip and here at StyledBy we’re in full support. If you’re feeling a little dusty, there’s nothing like a pop of colour to brighten your complexion, and your mood for that matter. Best worn with a simple white tee or printed dress with natural make-up.

2. The Biker

If there’s one jacket that will go with everything you own – weekend or no weekend – it’s this one. Whether you’re wearing your frilliest dress, baggiest boyfriend jeans or tailored separates, all you need to do is drape this over your shoulders and you are set.

3. The Jean

Saturday breakfast calls for a comfy blue jean and extra strong coffee. Err on the luxe side like our girl-crush Phoebe Tonkin, and wear with embellished tops. We suggest you give the heels a miss and replace with a pair of brogues or suede mules.

4. The Sunglasses

Ok we know that these sunnies look like you’ve borrowed them from your nan’s closet, but something about that makes us love them even more. The over-sized frame works perfectly with other 70s inspired separates – try with a fine-knit turtle neck and a cropped wide-leg trouser.

5. The Tee

Synonymous with the street-style set and the must-have item for any effortless ensemble, the graphic tee is the simplest way to upgrade your weekend look. The options for colour and slogan are endless – just try to stop at one

6. The Trouser

For the days when you might need a little more tailoring- work in a cropped trouser. And since so many of our work-week ensembles are black and navy, try steering yourself towards a neutral colour scheme then wear with other block colours or anything striped.

7. The Sneaker

When all else fails, the white sneaker prevails. Comfortable and always cool, bloggers worldwide have showed us that the sneaker can be worn with almost anything. Keep it simple and wear with your jeans and graphic t-shirt or try with a velvet slip and oversized denim jacket.

8. The Dress

For the ultimate weekend failsafe, try a long sleeved dress- classic and comfortable,  it will get you through from lunch to drinks by simply changing accessories. Daytime means sneakers and sunglasses and evening calls for your best top handle bag and ankle-strap sandals. For a more exciting version, why not try a graphic print.
