If you've ever studied the off-duty snaps of really stylish women — think fashion bloggers  or celebs like Miranda Kerr  — you'll find a lot of common ground. Despite their own personal style, they gravitate toward the same pieces again and again to inspire some of the chicest Friday through Sunday outfits. These are what we've come to regard as the basics, the essential building blocks of really awesome off-duty wear. It's a far cry from your pajamas, though it doesn't take nearly as much effort as you'd think. The key, of course, is owning the right pieces. Look through to get started right here.
Easy Day Dress
While Saturdays and Sundays are made for kicking back, throwing on a breezy dress looks pulled together without requiring any major effort.
Weekends mean we live in our denim — find your favorite pair and never let them go.
From rocker tees to your favorite striped shirt, this is always a must to top jeans, cutoffs, etc.
Ah, "joggers" . . . sweatpants' dressed-up counterpart. OK, honestly, they're practically the same thing — so toss your beat-up loungewear and swap in a style that's as chic as it is comfy.
Hat to Elevate Your Outfit
Make a statement without even trying just by topping your outfit with a hat. Easy as that.
You can get away with wearing cool sneakers with just about anything, and thankfully our casual wardrobes look even cooler with these fresh kicks.
The easiest way to dress up your weekend uniform might just be adding a fresh pair of shades to your look. Look for cool details like mirrored frames or sleek aviators to set your outfit apart.
Chic, Walkable Flats
Aside from your sneakers, you'll want a polished pair of ballet slippers, loafers, or slides that you wear to brunch, lunch, and beyond all weekend.
Reach for a bomber, denim, or leather jacket to throw over everything from your day dress to your jeans and t-shirt for a stylish upgrade.
Dress it up or dress it down, and it's perfect your denim-on-denim  look. No matter where you're headed on your Saturday afternoon, this shirt pretty much has you covered, hence its fashion-staple status.
We're not talking statement necklaces or bright baubles, just a pretty piece you can throw on with a v-neck tee or tank to give anything you wear a little something extra. It's that easy.
Whether you opt for a bucket bag, tote, or crossbody style, an easy-chic purse that can hold all your essentials is a must for dashing around on weekends.
