Fill up your back­pack, get a look that’s easy and cool and head out for the day

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | GOING OUT - Emma Fraser

This week, we meet Hope Hig­gins for a look at her sum­mer week­end out­fit. It’s per­fect for a com­fort­able week­end day out – colour­ful and funky and great for a long day out in the sun.

1 Back­pack: Back­packs are the sum­mer must-have bag. You can head out for the day and fit ev­ery­thing you need into it. With your bag on your back you can be care­free and not laden down. This fab one from Ur­ban Out­fit­ters had lots of room and the de­sign is so sim­ple it will go with ev­ery­thing. MiPac per­fo­rated back­pack, ur­banout­fit­ters.com, ¤35.

2 Shorts: Who likes short shorts? Th­ese are not for the faint of heart. The short­est of shorts but re­ally cute and great with the over­sized shirt. Dress them down with a pair of run­ners and they to­tally work. They will also be great at the pool­side on your hol­liers. Make sure to check out Boohoo, they have denim shorts for ev­ery shape and size you could ever imag­ine. Loren high cut denim fray hot­pants, ¤20, boohoo.com.

3 Run­ners: When the weather is hot we need to be com­fort­able. We Ir­ish don’t han­dle the heat very well. If you are head­ing out for a day of sum­mer fun , Nike Air Max should be your footwear of choice. They also give a great sporty feel to Hope’s look. Nike Air Max 90 Hyper­fuse, ¤57, jd­sports.ie

4 Shirt: The 1990s blouse will be your pur­chase of the sum­mer. Over­sized, they will work on ev­ery­one. They are are one-off pieces so your best mate won’t turn up in the same one and they can be worn open like a sum­mer jacket or closed with a pair of jeans for when it is a bit more chilly. The pat­terns are al­ways so vi­brant they in­stantly cheer up what would be a sim­ple out­fit. ¤22, shop­ninecrows.com
