Emerging into the real world this spring has, for all of us, been quite an experience. Sunny pub gardens and reuniting with friends in parks has been heavenly, but remembering how to get dressed for such outings has been— dare we say it— difficult. That’s also been the case for us whose job it is to know how to dress, so don’t feel too bad when you’re drawing a blank in front of your current wardrobe.
We often turn to brands for outfit inspiration at the beginning of each season, but this spring it’s been an essential trick for discovering fresh styling ideas. It’s helped to remind us what goes with what (outside of a two-piece tracksuit), but also of our love of fashion, the joy of experimenting and creating new looks with the staples we already own. And one of our favourite brands to look to right now, is Weekday.
As well as being on the affordable end of the spectrum, we also just love the styling on the site. Rather than your usual high street looks, the brand makes a real effort to pair classic and trend-led pieces together in interesting ways while still making it all feel super wearable. We’re talking new ways to style crisp blue shirts, white denim and classic tank tops for SS21— helpful, right?
Their just-dropped Summer Dreams collection is a particularly good example and has seriously helped us in our forward planning for this coming season. Keep scrolling, then, for 8 of our favourite outfits from Weekday.
Linen Co-Ord + Black Tank
Style Notes: Swap your matching tracksuit for a linen two-piece. It's just as easy to wear, but it feels much fresher.
Weekday Tessa Linen Mix Shirt (£40)
Weekday Beth Rib Tank Top (£8)
Weekday Lilah Trousers (£45)
White Denim + Blue Shirt
Style Notes: We're very into long denim shorts for summer, and this is a great example of how to wear them right now. Bikini optional.
Weekday Tarali Twill Jacket (£55)
Weekday Edyn Poplin Shirt (£35)
Weekday Cala Printed Swim Top (£18)
Weekday Dandy Denim Shorts (£35)
Linen Dress + Matching Cap
Style Notes: We love how the matching baseball cap and flatform sandals bring this throw-on linen dress bang up to date.
Weekday Corinna Linen Dress (£45)
Weekday Cusp Cap (£12)
Weekday Sea Hoop Earrings (£10)
Check Shirt + Wide Leg Jeans
Style Notes: Wide leg jeans are a must for summer. If you were wondering how to pull them off, a simple vest and cute shacket will do the trick.
Weekday Isa Overshirt (£55)
Weekday Stella Tank Top (£8)
Weekday Ace High Wide Jeans (£40)
Bike Shorts + Knotted Blouse
Style Notes: Going out in public doesn't mean sacrificing comfort. We love the way this knotted blouse makes a whole look out of bike shorts and a tank.
Weekday Filippa Blouse (£30)
Weekday Strap Crop Top (£10)
Weekday Stella Bike Shorts (£12)
Weekday Space Mini Handbag (£30)

Weekday Edyn Poplin Shirt (£35)
Weekday Scoop One-Shoulder Tank (£12)
Weekday Kama Shorts (£18)
Weekday Tip Cap (£12)
Pink Tennis Dress + Pink Accessories
Style Notes: We still can't get enough of pink for spring, meaning we obviously approve of this easy to wear head-to-toe look.
Weekday Jana Velour Dress (£35)
Weekday Eleven Striped Socks (£4)
Weekday Zari Handbag (£25)
Split Hem Trousers + Blazer + Knit Tank
Style Notes: Easy, understated and cool. Perfect for this transitional weather.
