Fab­rics with a nos­tal­gic feel make a wel­come ad­di­tion to week­end dress­ing this sum­mer; soft-to-touch linen, retro­v­elour and prints rem­i­nis­cent of homes on the prairie (hello ging­ham and patch­work) are all part of a no-fuss ap­proach to dress­ing for those re­quir­ing more than gym clothes for the week­end. Loose, care­free dresses make a great start­ing point here, with sev­eral de­sign­ers in­clud­ing throw-on-and-go dresses, tu­nics and smocks to en­cour­age an eas­i­ness that will carry you through the day. And while some de­sign­ers try to scrimp and save on costs by omit­ting lin­ing in their gar­ments, oth­ers see the value in a sec­ond layer — handy par­tic­u­larly in the height of sum­mer when clothes re­quire some sup­port. The Jude dress by Twenty-seven Names is one such gar­ment, lined with breath­able 100 per cent cotton cal­ico, adding the right amount of weight to this smock-style dress, teamed eas­ily with a pair of can­vas sneak­ers or your favourite sum­mer mules.

Wid­dess 10 per cent cotton voile top $229. Zambesi satin PJ pants $380. Zelda Mur­ray pearl and bead ear­rings, $240, from Penny Sage.
