Time-saving weekend outfits

When you have a million and one things to do, thinking about what to wear at the weekend often falls to the bottom of your list of priorities. Whether you're ferrying the kids to birthday parties, dashing round the shops or taking the dog for a walk, you'll need your weekend clothing to work as hard as you do.

To save you time, we've pulled together our favourite off-duty pieces so that you'll be ready for whatever your weekend has in store. So that's one less thing to worry about - now if you could just find your car keys...

Walking the dog

When it comes to the great outdoors, comfort is key. A denim dress is the ultimate in versatility - simply layer a striped Breton top underneath if the weather is chilly and pair with some cosy leggings or tights to keep warm.

Brunching with friends

There's nothing better than a Saturday morning spent catching up with your nearest and dearest. For brunch, you need a weekend outfit that's stylish, yet relaxed. Pop on a loose-fitting plain white tee (ideal if you're about to go for it on the croissants and coffee), a stylish statement jacket and some straight-fit jeans . Accessorise with a classic leather bag and slip into a pair of comfortable ankle boots - perfect wherever you're brunching.

Romantic dinner date

An evening out with your loved one calls for a touch of glamour, and nothing says glamour quite like a feminine dress . An elbow-length style will see you through all seasons and, for a flattering shape, choose one that nips you in at the waist. Team with a classic cross body bag , a statement necklace and a pair of metallic brogues to really pull your outfit together.
