The best thing about the weekend? Well, it’s the weekend. And in the summer, when the air is warm and the pace is slightly slower, there’s nothing quite like two days of freedom to explore markets, mosey around the city, and meet up with friends for morning coffee or evening cocktails. These days call for effortless attire that doesn’t sacrifice style. So, without further ado, what to wear for three favorite weekend activities:
Casual practicality is key when dressing for flea market treasure hunting. A cross-body bag (we love everything from newcomer Laura Vela, and they’re on sale to boot) makes for easy hands-free browsing. City shorts and a tank by Kova & T will keep you cool, and a straw fedora will shade your face from the sun.
Whether it’s a trip to Montauk, a few hours cruising the boardwalk in Venice, or splitting time between the shores and the cafés in the South of France, a beach look needs to be versatile, comfortable, and chic. Let an oversized Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt be your cover-up (paired with Kain Label hot pants, perhaps), and pick a sexy-chic bikini to match—Vix Swimwear and Zimmermann are faves.
Counter the day of leisure with a sharp approach to dressing. Wide-leg ankle pants by Phillip Lim feel classic yet avant-garde. Paired with a Technicolor Nanette Lepore tank, a gauzy cardigan, and Calvin Klein shoes, you’ve got a modern take on ladies-who-brunch style.
