Weekends are generally reserved for hitting the newest hotspots in town, attending to that mammoth to-do list (that often gets neglected during the week) and catching up on sleep. And while we are always dressed to the nines after hours, off-duty dressing should be no different. We decided to take inspiration from these chic fashionistas on the blog-sphere for what outfits to wear when running errands.
In the trenches
Update a basic denim and tee look with a trench-style cape like blogger Aayushi Bangur of Style Drive. Bring out a roomy tote to fit your wallet, keys, makeup kit and all those receipts. Slip into brogues to give your look an androgynous update.
Spend the work week in stuffy formals? So use the weekend to unleash the flower child within, like blogger Shereen Sikka of Love And Other Bugs. Whether you’re picking up laundry or headed to the supermarket, an off-shoulder boho chic dress, fringed bag and clogs are on-point.
Blogger Amiee Song of Song of Style presents a master class in being ready for the street style paps even when running errands. Give denim on denim a twist with two-toned jeans and a lace denim top. Continue the two-toned theme with your shoes as well.
Think comfortable and chic don’t go hand in hand? Allow blogger du jour Chiara Ferragni to change your mind. A pair of basic shorts, quirky tee and sneakers is all you need as you step out to check off that to-do list. Add a fedora hat for a hipster vibe.
Like to be prepared for those unexpected encounters even when running errands? Then Santushi Shetty of The Style Edge’s look is for you. A monotone twinset with a nonchalant cape will have you covered for those chance ‘dates with destiny’. Opt for kicks over heels so that you don’t tire easily!
