Saturday night: Some nights you want to go all out and dial up the sex appeal to 11. And other nights you want to look cute with minimal effort, makeup and time. Olivia Palermo’s outfit fires on all cylinders — it has a gauzy skirt and a top you can unbutton for him, plus flats and and a hold-everything purse for you. Schedule a relaxed sunset picnic (heavy on the wine), slip into this and call it a night.
Tuck the chambray shirt you already have (right?) into this $14 Forever 21 skirt, add some leopard flats (this Mia pair has cute red trim and is only $44) and bring your favorite bag — anything goes with this easy ensemble. As for that wine: You can accessorize a bottle of Ooh La La chardonnay with a bottle opener-slash-cuff. Is someone out there reading our minds…?
Sunday brunch: And if you’re anything like us, once you’ve already started on a lazy weekend, that train is going full steam ahead. That’s why we love Kristin Cavallari‘s laid-back but put-together look.
The striped maxi skirt is polished and pretty, and the jean jacket and tucked-in top defines your waist to make sure you don’t get overwhelmed in all that fabric.
This Anthropologie skirt has the similarly diverting lines to keep the eye moving, and this fitted American Eagle denim jacket is an editor fave that can go anywhere. You’re on your own for that adorable, chubby-legged accessory, though.
Monday morning: While we don’t necessarily advocate looking like you’re leaving the club when you stroll into work Monday morning, we totally stand behind this cute, relaxed and work-appropriate outfit courtesy of Reese Witherspoon.
Her tailored sateen J Brand black jeans and modest tee are the perfect foundations for a cool print-blocked blazer and two-tone black and white pumps, and her electric blue clutch is the perfect finishing touch.
