5 Chic Outfits For Your Best Weekend Ever

It's funny how a month's worth of social activities always seem to fall on the same weekend; it's like every corner of your friend network got the same carpe-diem memo. Among the group date you promised your BFF you'd go on, the swanky B-day party you RSVP'd to a few weeks back, and the coffee plans with your old roomie, you've got one packed agenda. Aside from flexing those social butterfly skills, you're going to need a lineup of looks to see you through those whirlwind 48 hours.

Not sure where to start? No surprise here: Basics are your best bet to create a comfortable and versatile foundation. We started with classic Old Navy pieces — like a denim jumpsuit, comfy culottes, and a suede skirt — and dressed them up and down into five distinctive ensembles. Check out your new weekend wardrobe ahead, and by the time Sunday night hits, let's just say you're in for some seriously deep ZZZs.

Caffeinated Morning Meetup
If you're starting your Saturday with a latte-and-doughnut date, enlist a throw-on-and-go staple like a denim jumpsuit to get you out the door after too many snooze cycles. Assuming the pick-me-up is enough to keep you from crawling back into bed, include subtly dressed-up details, like comfy mules, statement sunnies, and a maroon shoulder bag, to look on point all day.

Group Date With The Crew
The first-date outfit is one that has given us angst since, well, our very first date. If you find yourself getting the jitters about what to wear to an initial romantic encounter, a classic look will always impress without trying too hard. Try a laid-back white-tee-and-circle-skirt combo paired with a denim jacket and booties. Make it a group outing for added comfort.

Baller B-Day Party
When your BFF decides to go all out for her birthday — cleverly named cocktails, an Instagram-famous DJ, and all-night dancing included — your outfit best be equal parts cool and comfortable. Slip on culottes for stylish mobility, then pair them with a festive graphic top, long-line vest, bucket bag, and block heels sturdy enough to let you drop it (and gracefully stand back up).

Sunday Funday Marathon
You never know what you're in for when your pals call you up to hang out with no agenda. Sure, your day could start with brunch or a movie, but you still have plenty of daylight hours to kill before letting the Sunday Scaries sink in. Keep your look as ready for anything as you are with versatile patchwork jeans, sneaks, and a collared mesh top.

Treat-Yourself Eats
A new Asian-fusion spot just opened up in your hood, and you've finally pulled the trigger on making reservations. Pick out a look that's polished and elevated but with your signature quirk — it is the weekend, after all. Metallic shoes and a furry bag bring an element of playfulness to the tailored separates.
