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.
1. TO THE SUN
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).
H&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.
Stick some earrings (£7.99, New Look), a clutch (£39, Star by Julien Macdonald, Debenhams), and some court shoes (£19.99, H&M) into a large bag like this lovely check tote from Collection @ Debenhams (£55) and you’re sorted.
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.
Match a wooden ring (£3.99, New Look) to your bag, and try a blanket wrap-style jacket in brown tones (£34.99, New Look) and a denim pinafore (£24.99, New Look) for a 1970s feel to your weekend style.
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).
Choose 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!
