Casual weekend outfits can be tough to get right. You want to put across the vibe that you’re relaxing on your two days off work, but you don’t want to look like a slob. So, how do you find the perfect balance for weekend style?
Just because you’re enjoying your days off doesn’t mean that your weekend outfits have to slack in the style department. There are tons of classy ways that you can show off your men’s weekend outfits without trying too hard or, even worse, not trying at all.
Creating weekend outfit ideas is all about knowing what works for you, because that’s how you go about creating wardrobe staples. Once you have that foundation, you can easily build your weekend style without having to put much thought into your looks.
In this article full of men’s weekend outfits, we’ll give you some ideas on how you can transform your weekend style and upgrade your closet with Perk items in order to look and feel your best no matter where the weekend takes you.
Going Out to Eat
Whether you’re grabbing a bite for takeout or enjoying time in a restaurant with loved ones, it’s important to get casual weekend outfits for these situations right. To look breezy and carefree, we recommend a lightweight shirt - whether you choose a striped camp shirt or one of Perk’s classic tees - and a pair of casual pants, like jeans or chinos. Top it off with a clean pair of white sneakers and you’ve got the idea.
Warm weather is here, and there’s no better time to enjoy it than the weekend. If you plan on getting outdoors, all you have to do is amend the ‘out to dinner’ look a bit. You can still go with a classic Perk t-shirt and our famous chinos, but to complete your outfit, we recommend topping it off with a classic denim jacket.
Pro tip: On an especially warm day, white tees are your best friend. They’re breathable and they look sharp, and if you pair them with a crisp blazer, you’ll be ready for dinner out on the town.
Lightweight fabrics are great for casual weekend outfits, especially on the days when you’re just hanging out. Some of the most classic pieces you can choose are polo shirts, sneakers, and a few pairs of performance shorts.
Remember, during the summer, light colors can go a long way. Not only will they show off your awesome tan, they’ll also keep you cool when the sun is extra hot.
Plus, is there anything better than pairing a classic white tee with jeans and suede loafers? We think not.
Stripes, Stripes, Stripes
Stripes are great anytime, not just for weekend outfits, but utilizing them on your days off never hurts. If you pair a multi-striped shirt with a navy base with Perk’s navy chinos, finishing the look off with a pair of canvas sneakers, you’ll have a casual, yet show-stopping, look on your hands.
Keep It Comfy
You may think that you have to sacrifice comfort for your weekend style, but that is not the case at all. You can still look great while remaining comfortable, and you can make this happen by pairing neutral pieces together, like a tee shirt and shorts.
Simplicity Is Key
Achieving an effortless look is simpler than you might think. All you have to do is throw on your favorite pair of Perk chinos, a crisp white tee-shirt and then a black Harrington jacket. There’s an outfit that took almost no thought at all, but it’s a look that will catch the eyes of everyone you come across.
The All-Black Look
There’s almost nothing sleeker than an all-black look, even for casual weekend outfits. But how can you elevate this outfit from something that blends in with the masses? It’s easy - all you need to do is find a short-sleeved button-up shirt with an interesting pattern, and you’ll create something that stands out from your all-black outfit.
Don’t Forget the Staples
Casual staples for weekend style are everything - and at Perk, we stock them all. We’re talking both short and long-sleeved tee shirts in basic, neutral colors, and chinos. These are foundational pieces that you cannot pass up having in your wardrobe, for weekends and weekdays alike.
When you think of layers, you probably think of winter - but they can work in summer, too. Pick clean and simple styles and colors that work well with each other, like olive and navy. Then, choose a standout white tee and watch your outfit work its magic.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to keep your style on point, even as you’re relaxing over the weekend. For more men’s style tips and pointers, check out Perk’s blog.
