We stare down our closets, five days a week, in search of the perfect professional-meets-fashionable ensembles, and by the time Saturday rolls around, a lady can be forgiven for not wanting to give an ounce of effort to her outfit. But here’s the thing about being a fashion girl—you can’t just turn off the impulse to look stylish, even if you wanted to! As such, we went ahead and culled the best lazy-girl looks that are easy to copy, comfortable to boot (no heels allowed), and, most importantly, sartorially satisfying. Click through now to get your weekend look on lock.
Style lesson learned: ladylike pieces, such as a camel coat, and leopard bag look incredible balanced against edgier items like heavily distressed jeans and geometric print creepers.
