This week’s “What to Wear” is all about casual comfort that highlights your best assets and looks like you spent lots of time on your outfit. Only you have to know the truth!
Saturday night: So you want to wear a pair of shoes that’s going to get your guy going gaga, but you’re just not in the mood to stagger around in heels. Miranda Kerr offers the perfect solution via her Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots, which have all the sex appeal of traditional over-the-knee boots with none of the pain. Second-skin jeans and an unbuttoned-to-there silky black blouse bring the heat, and a sexy red lip escalates the temperature to “scorching.”
Caliente and comfy boots for under $120? Yes, they exist in this Chinese Laundry pair. Wiggle into your sexiest skinnies, unbutton one more button on that blouse and swipe on CoverGirl LipPerfection in “Hot” for a sexy pout. Then prepare for a long night out — you have no excuse to leave the dance floor now.
Sunday brunch: It can be tricky to try a few of-the-moment trends at once, but Emma Watson proves it can be done. Layering a letterman jacket over a “Radarte” statement tee could risk looking like overkill, but she wisely keeps the rest of her look (including a DSquared satchel) all-black and her makeup and hair sleek and low-key. It’s a perfect look for mimosas, shopping and catching a movie depending on where the day takes you.
This Hive & Honey varsity jacket is just $75 (and you’ll live in it!) and here’s a perfect wear-everywhere satchel from Madewell. And if you can’t live without the Radarte tee (we can’t blame you!) you can get one here.

Monday morning: Some Mondays, you’re just not ready to get out of your sweats and into a full fancy outfit. Meet the perfect compromise, courtesy of Brooklyn Decker. She attended the opening of the new San Francisco Express flagship store in a cozy, cute outfit by the brand that will have you thinking you’re still in your PJs (but fooling everyone in the office into thinking you didn’t just roll out of bed and right into this).
She pairs the brand’s stretch knit pencil skirt with a fall-perfect red cropped sweater (though if you’re not ready to flash your supermodel abs at the office, a slightly longer one will do) and adds classic black pumps. Clean makeup and simple jewelry will complete the look. (PS: If you want to shop her outfit, we found an Express discount code for you to use!)
