Weekend Style – Wherever You Go

So, it’s the Edinburgh September holiday weekend this weekend, and Glasgow the next. Are you heading off anywhere? And if so, what’s your weekend style?

Wherever you are headed, we’ve got a weekend style for you.


Are you heading off to the sun this September weekend? Short break with the girls? Romantic getaway? A few days in the sun is a great tonic at this time of year. But what’s your weekend style for a few days in the sun?

You don’t need a lot for a weekend. Make a maxi dress in black (£24.99,H&M) your weekend evening wear, and you can wear it home as well, cover up the legs when you get off the plane in the freezing UK! A cute playsuit is perfect (£12.99, H&M), you need some stylish sunnies (£18, JOY), and some flip-flops (£26, Havaianas @ Schuh), and a bag that will work for day and night, like GAP’s striped bucket bag (£19.99, was £34.95).

weekend style beach breakH&M still have some cute straw sunhats in store (£9.99), and we reckon stripes are a great bet for a new bikini (top £12.99, bottoms £7.99, H&M). Add a pair of strappy heels for evenings (£49, Faith @ Debenhams) and you’re almost there!


If you’re heading off to a country hotel for a weekend break, then your weekend style might need to be two things: warm and comfortable, with a little bit of Downtown style.

So, make sure you have some jeans for daytime walks, a cover-up or two and something to dress for dinner in. H&M’s gorgeous chevron slouchy 1970s style cover-up (£49.99) is perfect out and in, dressed up, or down. Schuh’s fringe tassel boots (£75) work with trousers or a skirt. Make your skirt this gorgeous full midi from RJR John Rocha @ Debenhams (£45), which will look gogeous with an embellished sweater (£40, RJR John Rocha). And that sweater will work perfetly under a furry gilet (£24.99, New Look) with fab flares (£44.95, GAP) for a country walk.

Heading for a British seaside break? You probably won’t need any swimwear, but you will need a hat, and gloves, most likely! Mix it up with cord, denim, coats and wraps, in a colour palette of browns and blacks.

Betty Jackson Black @ Debenhams has some fab slouchy 80s style coats like this monochrome one (£75) this autumn/winter, go check them out! Team your coat with skinny cords (£39.95, GAP), fringed boots (£65, Schuh) or gold trainers (£60, Reebok @ Schuh), and a fun sea-themed Tee (£25, Valley of the Dolls @ JOY). Add a retro style patchwork bag (£19.99, New Look), and a cute beret (£14, Red Herring @ Debenhams) and some gloves (£26, RJR John Rocha @ Debenhams) for warmth.

Off on a city break? You;ll need to look super-stylish, and be comfortable too. Choose a colour palette of three shades – we’ve picked black with beige and burgundy for autumnal weekend style. We love New Look’s striped culotte jumpsuit (£22.99), teamed with either chunky black boots (£75, RJR John Rocha @ Debenhams) or tan platforms (£55, Faith), if you dare. These work beautifully in the evening too, with a gorgeous floral printed dress (£60, Star by Julien Macdonald @ Debenhams).


weekend style city breakChoose on-trend cover-ups – a burgundy cape (£24.99, H&M) or a patterned cardi-coat (£45, Principles @ Debenhams). And keep your bag comfortable, roomy and stylish with H&M’s black tote (£14.99), or Floozie by FrostFrench’s rich claret quilted bag (£29, Debenhams). Finally, the obligatory floppy felt hat (£19.99, H&M) – don’t leave home without one this autumn/winter!

What’s your weekend style?
