Ah, the weekend. Time to shake off those office outfits and slip into something more comfortable. But what to wear? Take a cue from our four easy-chic ways for you to get your weekend look on point...

1. Brunch with friends

What better way to welcome in the weekend than smashed avocado on toast and catching up with friends?

Brunch calls for an outfit with the perfect balance of casual and cool. A bold print midi skirt by French label Cacharel, one of thousands of contemporary brands available via Amazon Fashion, hits just the right note and is super-easy to wear. Pair with a simple white top and statement silver slingbacks featuring this season's on-point midi heel and liquid metallic finish on a sunny Saturday, or swap them for fresh white sneakers if skies are looking grey.

2. Shopping trip

A shopping trip requires an outfit that's high on functionality. You need something that's easy to get n and off in changing rooms, and comfortable enough to walk around in all day. Think easy, effortless layers that can be taken on and off as in-store air-con and outside weather permit.

Opt for relaxed denim in an on-trend pale or stonewashed shade, like this pair from Scandi-inspired, super-affordable British label Waven, one of the hottest denim brands to launch in recent years and one of thousands available at Amazon Fashion. A lightweight maxi trench in dove grey by Filippa K, the Swedish brand beloved by the blogger set, adds a smart edge to your off-duty denim, while backless loafers are the ideal shopping shoe. This zebra-print pair by Marc Cain give an edge to an otherwise neutral outfit, and are super-easy to slip on and off.

3. Girls night out

The trouser suit is back! They were all over the AW17 catwalks and seen on the hottest street style stars during the latest round of international fashion shows, so now is the time to invest in one. and where better to debut yours than a night out with friends?

Danish brand Gestuz, just one of the many cool contemporary brands available at Amazon Fashion, has a beautiful cornflower blue suit that strikes the perfect balance between tailored and on-trend. The wrap detail blazer offers a more relaxed vibe than the traditional button fastening and taps into the current trend for pyjama dressing. Layer over a lace-trimmed camisole for extra detail.

When it comes to shoes, consider white the new nude. These block-heel slingbacks with a v-shape cut perfectly anchor any look while adding a truly contemporary edge.

4. Sunday stroll

The athleisure trend is still going strong and it's the perfect partner for a Sunday stroll around your local park.

Marc Cain's stripe-detail joggers tap into the trend seamlessly and are worth the investment; this trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. For a loungewear look that deserves to be seen, pair with a complementary top. Cains's zip-up number makes a statement thanks to the flash of leopard print , while Vagabond's clean white sneakers will become your go-to casual shoe.
