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.
Style Notes: With the simple additional layering of a bomber jacket, your trench and suede skirt combo will look suitably chilled for Saturday morning gallery visits or Sunday afternoon trips to the flower market.
Style Notes: Nothing dials down a suit jacket quite like the hoodie (the urban staple that has fallen surprisingly into favour with the world's leading fash editors). Dig out your favourite now, but do wear it with luxury accessories to maintain a polished balance.
On Diletta Bonaiuti: Costume National trousers; Loewe T Pouch With Red Pin Clutch Bag (£550).
Style Notes: A baseball tee (partially tucked-in) will add a playful edge to crisp, wide-legged trousers. Try this formula for lunch dates between weekend hours.
On Camille Charrière: Joy the Store coat; and Rag & Bone Alexis Cashmere Sweater (£295).
Style Notes: Clash hot oranges and cherry reds underneath an oversize coat to take a style vacation from corporate black.
Style Notes: A slogan tee tucked into a pair of high-octane jeans will immediately lend chill factor to your trench coat and mules.
Read about the £185 Vetements T-shirt that caused a royal stir in the fash world!
On Model: Céline tunic; and Vetements Wide-Legged Trousers (£685).
Style Notes: Stripes, beiges and khakis are the go-to pieces for early spring garden parties and staycations. Keep the look relaxed but elevated with wide-leg trousers and deftly tailored tunics.
Style Notes: A smart suit jacket lends a slick edge to tracksuits and makes up the perfect outfit for those weekend dashes to get all life-jobs completed before Monday morning. The finishing touch? Amplified sunglasses and barely there makeup.
Style Notes: If you've got a social diary of smart engagements all weekend long but want to stay on the relaxed side of chic, shoulder robe your coat, wear your bag across your body and add a jersey turtleneck. Balance achieved!
Style Notes: A biker jacket, a beanie and some natty loafers will relax any number of silk dresses for Saturday window-shopping strolls. Get on it.
On Olivia Palermo: Christian Dior Sideral Sunglasses (£271); Topshop Bomber Jacket (£85); Tibi top; Rag & Bone leather trousers (shop similar style); Christian Louboutin Toerless Muse Suede Shoes (£625).

On Donna Wallace: Louis Vuitton Twist MM Bag (£2300).
Style Notes: A bright colour palette will place your mindset in Saturday mode, so go for bright blues and soft buttery tones.
On Sofia Grau: Zara cardigan; Chloé Faye Suede Bag (£575); Aquazzura boots.
Style Notes: A long cardigan belted over a midi dress is a sure-fire way to stamp "out-of-office" on your wardrobe. Apply at 5.30 p.m. on Friday.
