Scandi-wannabes, have your pens at the ready...
Structured silhouettes, elevated basics and a day-to-night monochrome palette. It's the Scandinavian recipe for sartorial success.
Oh, we have spent hours in front of the mirror in an attempt to imitate the Swedish art of effortless dressing.
We'll team box-fresh trainers with tailored trousers borrowed from the boy's section for work. And come evening, we'll trade in mules for chunky velcro-strap sandals. But now, we may finally have the chance to get Scandi-dressing down to a T.
You needn't ever find an excuse to splurge on international shipping costs again, as the fashionable Scandinavian’s go-to store is being shipped to British shores this summer. Yes, you read that correctly. Weekday is planning to set up shop on Regent Street in August.
Never heard of it? Just imagine if & Other Stories and COS had a fashion baby. Yes, it's truly something to behold.
Within minutes of discovering the news, we'd curated the Scandi-Wannabe's weekly shopping list. So spare a moment to browse Grazia's best buys ahead of the grand unveiling...
The ‘It’ Sunglasses
These frames are at the top of our wish list this season
A similar pair from fellow Swedish giant H&M sold out instantaneously so make sure to snap up these round frames, asap. We'll be teaming ours with everything from mandarin-collared shirts to the summer one-piece. Accessorise with an oversized straw bag for added sartorial points.
The Summer Staple
We'll be teaming this two-piece with Birks come summer
Weekday is renowned for its swimwear. We're talking minimal bandeau tops, cut-out swimsuits and arthouse-inspired beach prints. We have our eyes on this muted two-piece from the cult Swedish brand. We'll be shamelessly copying from the Swedes and teaming the bikini with Birkenstocks.
The Sister Brand
Bag yourself a fashion slice of the Weekday x Cahmpion
Last year, Weekday struck a friendship with cult sportswear brand Champion. The collaboration launched hoodies, sweatpants and ankle-skimming skirts that sold out instantaneously. And we're hoping the King of athleisure will show its face in the new store. If so, we have our eyes on this jersey skirt. Simply don with a basic tee and trainers.
The Investment Piece
We've just tracked down the 'It' item of the season
It's undoubtedly the most important item in our spring wardrobe. The biker jacket. We're forever on the hunt for a could-be-designer number which doesn't break the bank. And good news, as we've finally tracked it down. We'll be teaming this leather jacket with a printed slip dress and 'ugly' sandals.
The Workwear Essential
Introduce some new pieces to your work wardrobe this season
Weekday does one thing particularly well. Shirts. Whether you're seeking an oversized white blouse, a pinstripe funnel-neck number or a printed piece with super sleeves - the Swedish brand has you covered. We cannot wait to reinvent our workwear this season with the help of Weekday. We've already put our names down for this blue shirt. Simply half-tuck into jeans and finish with slip-on mules.
