From Date Night to Brunch: Weekend Wardrobe Inspiration
If your weekend is shaping up to be anything like ours, you’ll need a party-ready outfit, a low-key look for when you’re headed for waffles the morning after and something to make your Monday morning move a little faster. We’ve got an easy Gwyneth Paltrow-approved Saturday night ensemble, an lazy-chic Sunday morning jeans outfit courtesy of Eva Mendes and something to spice up your work uniform inspired by Stacy Keibler.
Saturday night: If you’ve been following our trend advice, you’ve already got Gwyneth Paltrow‘s whole outfit in your closet, just waiting to be worn on a fun night out. But if you still need a few of the pieces, try these $36 Topshop faux-leather leggings and these B Brian Atwood booties (a steal for the designer at $191 — and a close match to her pricey Nicholas Kirkwood pair).
Sunday afternoon: Eva Mendes has totally mastered the art of looking completely casual — but totally put-together. The takeaway: It’s all about the accessories. Toss on your cozy boyfriend-inspired cardi and jeans, then add a little polish with a chic headwrap (use a silk scarf or try a headband like these from Ban.do) and sleek booties (this Nine West pair is on sale for $78).
Monday morning: Your job may require you to wear a suit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with it. Add a few fashionable touches (while still looking über-professional) by buttoning a bright top all the way up and plaiting your hair into a pretty fishtail braid, as seen on Stacy Keibler. J. Crew’s silk Blythe blouse is a reliable staple — and is on sale starting at $79.99.
