a.k.a. How to dress down three classic wardrobe staples.

For this week's article, I decided to save you some time so you don't have to stand in front of your filled wardrobe thinking, " I have nothing to wear."

Inspired by the stress of career fairs, figuring out what I'm doing for the rest of my life, and my home-skillet biscuit Cynthia, I decided to base the article on three classic pieces that are usually worn for nerve-wracking things like presentations or interviews.

The good news is that these pieces can immediately amp-up any weekend outfit. Look in your closet, and pull out your blazer, button-up blouse, and trouser pants so we can get to stylin'!

TGIF - $96.70

Products: Blazer | Top | Shorts | Shoes| Wristlet

This monochrome outfit, fit for a fun Friday night out, features a black blazer for an "a-blazing" look. (#sorrynotsorry) Dress it down with a lace crop top and structured high-waisted shorts. Slip on a pair of black booties for height, and carry this cream-colored wristlet to store your essentials. Then get ready to unwind with friends after a long week!

Saturday Brunchin' - $85.26

Products: Shirt | Jeans | Shoes | Clutch | Bracelets

After a fun night out, relax with OJ and an eggs Benny with a brunch of friends - I mean a bunch of friends. White button-ups are usually crisp and stuffy for interviews, but you can create a laid-back look by leaving the top two buttons open and cuffing the sleeves just below your elbows.

Match it with your worn-in boyfriend jeans and leopard print flats. Then accessorize with a cognac-hued clutch and layered gold bracelets to finish off this effortlessly put-together look.

Sunday Studying - $90.14

Products: Cardigan | Top | Trousers | Shoes | Glasses

Sundays are made for catching up on work and meetings. Pull on these trouser-leggings for a comfortable, but sleek vibe. On the top, wear a black crop top and a long cream cardigan, which basically serves as a portable blanket.

Grab your reading glasses, and slip on a pair of loafers with old-school tassels for the ultimate lazy day outfit. Get down to business turning in your essays or problem sets... or College Fashion articles filled with lame word-play. (Sunday Punday, am I right?)

How do you like to unwind at the end of the week?
