6 Easy Weekend Outfits You'll Live In This Summer

Back in high school, Sundays were just as (if not more) ominous as Mondays, usually culminating in an anxious scramble to finish the homework we put off all weekend. Though we still experience a mini panic attack as the weekend comes to a close, Sundays have taken on a whole new meaning in adulthood: our last hurrah before we return to the grind. And, the ways to make the most of these final 24 hours of freedom are infinite.

Whether you're a nature enthusiast, beach babe, die-hard sports fanatic, or boozy bruncher still trying to hit your party quota before sundown, there's an outlet — and outfit — for everyone. Up next, we created six easy looks for every type of Sunday funday activity, because if you're like us, you probably need to save your energy for piecing together Saturday night's events, not a complicated ensemble (amirite?). Keeping those hot summer weekends in mind, each outfit is sunproof, too, complete with the latest shades from Sunglass Hut, breathable separates, and comfy footwear. So, go ahead and get the weekend group text going — with your outfit covered, the only thing you'll have to worry about is which emoji to use to express your enthusiasm.

Beachside R&R
A versatile cover-up for the beach or pool is key for post-swim happenings. We like this lightweight trench as a cute alternative to the standard swim sarong, and this peachy Marysia suit will truly pop under it. Bring in some color bursts with these Ray-Ban sunglasses and a tote with a water-resistant exterior.

Game Day
Whether you're going to a live game or cheering from your local haunt, you can get in the spirit with athletic-inspired pieces like leather shorts, a sports-bra-style crop top, and a mesh backpack. Top off the comfy, casual look with slip-on sneaks, aviators, and your home team's baseball cap for good measure.

Museum Crawl
Have a meta moment and channel some modern art in your look as you hop around to different museums or art fairs. This graphic tank is reminiscent of Mondrian's abstract De Stijl movement, and it pairs perfectly with black skinnies, clean loafers, and tortoiseshell shades.

Boozy Brunch
Alfresco dining and a bottomless brunch menu is an unbeatable combination. Choose a sleeveless shift dress that'll be comfy during the meal and wherever your mimosas take you. Slip on complementary teal sunnies to block the sun's glare (and that of jealous onlookers).

Backyard BBQ Feast
If you spend your Sundays grilling up Franks, burgers, and BBQ chicken (wait, where's our invite?), be sure to wear something breathable and forgiving, like these drawstring shorts that'll allow you to indulge to your heart's content. If you're trekking to a pal's place for the cookout, bring a large, durable tote in which you can stylishly transport your libations.

Botanic Garden Stroll
If retreating to nature — even if it's in the form of an urban botanic garden — is more your speed, start with cozy flats that you can explore in all day. We like this pointy-toe option paired with an easy dress, vibrant shades, and a sweater you can tie around your waist for lounging in the grass.
