Before the whole world started constantly working out, weekend dressing for winter generally consisted of a pair of jeans and a smart piece of knitwear. There's no denying athleisure has had an enormous impact on the way both men and women are dressing out of the office, but there are still plenty of smart pieces around for both work and weekend.

Sure puffer jackets serve a practical purpose, especially when out running errands or at Saturday sports, but these can be easily layered over tidy separates for a swift segue to other appointments during the day that require a little more effort than just wearing sporty Dri-Fit separates.

Block-coloured knitwear teams easily with a trusty pair of jeans and loafers or sneakers, and transform the Monday-Friday look of a clean-cut coat or trench into a casual
weekend high/low mix.
