Weekend dressing can be tricky sometimes. On one hand, you want to be relaxed and comfortable, but on the other, you also want to look effortlessly stylish if you’re going somewhere for the day.
Luckily you don’t have to pick one or the other — it’s possible to balance the two. Here are five relaxed outfit ideas for Sunday style in case you need some inspiration.
Jeans and a t-shirt
A classic that will never look dated. The best thing about the T-shirt and jeans combo is the amount of options you have. There are so many different cuts of jean these days, from classics like skinny and bootcut to more casual options like flares and boyfriend jeans. Team your chosen pair with a T-shirt and make the outfit your own with your favourite shoes and accessories — trainers are perfect if you are out with the children, while heeled ankle boots are ideal for wearing to Sunday lunch. Simple jewellery finishes the look.
A jumper dress
Sometimes you just need to throw on your outfit and get on with the day. A jumper dress and tights are ideal for this, and they have the bonus of keeping you warm now the weather is getting colder. Snuggle up on the sofa for a lazy day, or add a camel coat over the top if you need to leave the house. You’ll look chic with minimal effort.
Wide-legged trousers and a jumper
There’s something very sophisticated about wide-legged trousers, but it’s still easy to dress them down. Wear flat shoes (ballet pumps are easy to slip on and off) and a cosy jumper, preferably one that’s quite form-fitting to balance out the shape of the trousers.
The best option for days out when the weather forecast is a little hit and miss. Use a cotton T-shirt dress as your base, then add tights underneath and a long-sleeved top and waterproof trench coat over the top. Wear ankle boots to keep your feet dry and add a large handbag for essentials (such as an umbrella!). You can adjust according to the temperature and stay comfortable throughout the day.
The athleisure look
Athleisure is everywhere at the moment, and the good news is it’s easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe — especially on Sundays. All you need are comfy opaque black leggings, a supportive sports bra and a long-sleeved top. Put your trainers on if you need to go outside and there you have it.
