10 Inspiring Casual Cool Outfits

10 Inspiring Casual Cool Outfits

Weekend wear is the sartorial sticking point for most women, so we’ve pulled together ten terrific casual looks perfect for mooching round on a Saturday afternoon.

AW16-StyleM-0023

All the classics in one understated outfit – a stripe, a trench coat, white trainers, a black chain handbag and a pair of denims. Perfect weekend wear whatever your age.

 

Milan Street Style AW16 23.02.16

Monochrome always looks elegant. The chunky boots here are balanced nicely by the feminine white top. Comfortable and chic.

 

AW16-StyleM-0302

This wide-leg trouser and sweatshirt combination looks so comfortable, but has a real fashion edge because the pants are slightly oversized and the top has fringed detailing.

 

AW16 25.2.16 CMG

A longer-length cardigan is my weekend uniform. I love how this style-setter has?played with proportion by pairing it with cropped denims.

 

AW16 25.2.16 CMG

If pyjama dressing has been slow to take off, Kate Moss’s recent appearance at the Louis Vuitton menswear show in a silk safari-print pyjama suit will certainly add momentum to the trend. This colourful print suit is muted slightly by the elegant blush coat. A perfect pairing.

 

AW16-StyleM-0764

Sometimes, it’s all in the detail. A basic navy sweater is elevated with panel detailing on the upper arms, while denims are smartened up with a pair of beautiful ankle-strap shoes.

 

AW16-StyleM-0771

A sporty sweatshirt and a biker-style jacket are’reimagined in soft shades, and when paired with white wide-leg trousers look super chic.

 

AW16-StyleM-1220

Head-to-toe knits are a big trend for AW16. I love these oversized separates – so practical but so cool. This is?exactly what I would want to wear if I was browsing around town on a Saturday or meeting friends for lunch.

 

AW16-StyleM-1467

Ponchos, capes and throws are a really stylish way to finish off a casual look. In Ireland, whichever season we’re in, it’s all about clever layering. I love these muted hues too.

 

AW16-StyleM-1888

I love this colour pairing. Tangerine and khaki looks bold, but the slouchy laid-back vibe of the overall look dilutes down the impact just enough.
