After a long work week, all you want to do is kick off those pumps, trade your pencil skirts for jeans, and give your office-appropriate suiting a 48-hour vacation. You’ve spent the last five days dreaming of your off-duty wardrobe that, in your opinion, doesn’t get nearly enough time in the sun. TGIF, amiright? Though your weekend wears may be comprised of a stellar collection of denim, slouchy cashmere sweaters you’ve stolen from boyfriends past, and sneakers for days, you might not want to look like you just rolled out of bed—even if you have. Try keeping it classic; don’t be afraid of mixing tailored pieces with slouchy favorites, and remember that there are few looks that aren’t made perfectly weekend friendly with a pair of well-loved low-top kicks. Getting that enviable off-duty look is as easy as can be—just look at the stylish ladies below. Maybe it’s about adding a statement piece to that jeans-and-T-shirt look you wear so well. Or, perhaps it’s a more casual way of wearing—yes—your office attire. No matter what your go-to style is when you’re off the clock, check out these ways to kick it up a notch.
