THREE WAYS TO UPGRADE YOUR WEEKEND STYLE

After a busy working week, it is easy to fall into a style slump when the weekend rolls around. The active wear you throw on for the gym later suddenly becomes acceptable for running errands and you find yourself wondering when you last wore anything but denim. Mix it up this weekend with our weekend style upgrades, three ways to up your weekend game to 100% with zero effort.

MAKE A STATEMENT

There is no woman in the world who doesn’t appreciate the potential a statement bag has to completely transform an outfit. Switching up your trusty black ‘holds-everything’ tote bag for something a little more adventurous triggers a switch that says “the weekend is here!”

As Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire’s leading Mulberry stockist, we can’t resist the temptations of a pop of colour courtesy of the British designer brand. From the Lily in Ocean Green or Scarlet to the colour-block Cheyne, there is no quicker way to take your jeans and white shirt or black jumper from boring to brilliant. A great designer handbag is a failsafe way to prove your style credentials.

SWITCH JEANS FOR SKIRTS

If weekend = jeans where your wardrobe is concerned, you are not alone. After a working week in more tailored pieces, reaching for your jeans signals the start of your down time. We will never stop loving our designer denim staples but swapping your jeans for a skirt every now and then is one of the quickest way to upgrade your weekend style. Our Lexington Striped Skirt is one of the easiest items to wear for dressed down weekend breakfasts or shopping trips. Later, you’ll be amazed at how wearable a mini becomes when worn with a simple black T-shirt for dinner at a friends.

 

AND FINALLY, DON’T SAVE PIECES FOR BEST!  

Why is it that we save our absolute favourite items of clothing for special occasions? They are often some of the more expensive pieces in our wardrobe and buying them fills us with the kind of excitement that only clothes shopping can, yet we relegate them to the backs of our wardrobes until the next wedding or day at the races rolls around.

Unearthing some of these items doesn’t only better their cost-per-wear, it also upgrades your weekend look without added expense. Try wearing that full midi skirt with a grey sweater or great quality white T-shirt (both of which are absolute must-haves), or dress down a floaty maxi with trainers. You will be amazed at how much more wear you get from your wardrobe.
