What To Wear For The Weekend

Deciding what to wear on your days off can be incredibly difficult considering the range of activities that can take place between a Friday evening and a Sunday night.

Soccer games, brunches, church, grocery shopping, date night—the variety that the weekend brings is what makes it so fun. But the dramatic swing from what's appropriate to wear at one event to the next can make getting ready for those festivities a little stressful. Deciphering the clear difference between dressy casual, casual and the "I'm hanging at home" sweats can dictate how comfortable or out of place you feel at a given activity. 

Did you know there is actually a category of dressing called "dressy casual"? Emily Post's 18th Edition of "Etiquette" defines weekend attire as follows: 

Dressy casual consists of wearing a dress, skirt and dressy top, dressy pants outfit, or nice jeans and a dressy top. 

Casual dressing consists of a sundress, a long or short skirt, khakis or nice jeans, shorts, a plain t-shirt, a polo shirt, a turtleneck, or a casual button-down blouse. 

While these categories are quite general and don't include all trending looks (no jumpsuits on the list?!?), they can serve as a guide to what to wear to your many weekend occasions. 

The dressy casual outfits work for events like that brunch, a baby shower, date night or a birthday party.

The casual outfits work for events like the soccer game, shopping, routine errands, a picnic in the park. 

The sweats, well... they can't leave the front doorsteps. 

Last week, Emily and I explored dressy casual and casual occasions to give you an idea of how to dress for the plethora of events.
