The Perfect Ready-Made Weekend Outfits

On the weekends, all you want to do is cozy up in a sweater or your favorite T-shirt and call it a day. Turns out, you can keep your flats, your laid-back beauty look, and your comfiest bottoms, and still look put together. As proof, we've found three enviable outfits using all seasonal basics. The only thing that's left for you to do is copy, paste, and repeat in order to take the guess work out of your Saturday/Sunday routine.
2The Weekend Uniform
Take all of your comfiest work pieces (crisp pants, a boxy button-down or polo shirt) and make them fit for the weekend by pairing with an oversized sweater and a creative pair of creepers. It's a decidedly model-off-duty look (see how she does it here?) that is polished yet casual. Plus, it's the perfect excuse to borrow a piece or two from any man.

Channel the colors of fall foliage with a bright red cardigan from Coach's brand-new collection of head-to-toe essentials — yep, you're getting the first look right here! Stick to neutral-hued accessories, such as the oxblood Borough bag and brown Melody bootie to let that sweater shine (like a diamond).

1The Saturday-To-Saturday Night
"Going out" outfits might as well be a thing of the past. Really, who wants to go home and change when you can power through a day and night in just one look? The remix of basics is perfect for both shopping and cocktails because it's sexy with a casual flair. As the temps drop, just remember to throw on those tights!

3The Style All Star
Not that you need any excuse to wear your favorite sneakers on the weekends, but this look balances out the sporty with the sophisticated by keeping it simple. If you're going for the trainers on bottom, make sure to pair your look with something slightly body-con (like the fitted skirt) and then take the outfit home with a sleek white sweater you'll wear all season long. Easy, understated, ideal.
