16 Weekend Outfit Ideas for Off-Duty Fashion Girls

In truth, fashion influencers never take a day off from being accidentally stylish or from cutting fresh interpretations on current trends. As Friday afternoon switches the collective mood from professional to push-back time, wardrobes in London don't lose steam on style; rather they get all the cooler for it.

The hoodie may have found its way underneath Gucci suit jackets, and denim may be acceptable in the boardroom, but the blurred lines between at-work and at-play fashion need sharpening ever still in a world where the premium fashion houses lead catwalk collections with bombers and bikers. Especially if you work in an office with a laid-back dress code, you need to distinguish your Monday to Friday look from the weekend. Here's how.

Scroll down to see 16 fresh off-duty outfit ideas that will keep your Saturday/Sunday wardrobe elevated but on the down low.
