Red splashed up all over the pre fall collections, from Thakoon to Opening Ceremony, Proenza Schouler, Moschino, Michael Kors, MSGM…

Classics like leather jackets, cutoff shorts, tees, and sweatshirts all make up a weekend wardrobe’s foundation. These easy to wear and simple pieces work wonders, especially come Saturday. Once you’ve got that part down, the question is how to turn it up a notch, without adding any hint of fuss. Our answer? Red.

Edythe, cozy in a roomy hoodie, still manages to show off her legs in this red hot leather mini skirt. All by Diesel.

Add a punch of red into an easy weekend foundation of black and attract just enough attention — as much as you’d want running between the dry cleaners, Whole Foods, and drinks in the Biergarten. Grounding an intense shade with leather, cotton, and denim will help you sink right into the weekend, even if it will draw extra eyes your way.
