What to Wear This Weekend, From Date Night to Brunch

08/23/2013 at 06:34 PM ET

The theme of this weekend is laid-back and lovely, and we pulled three looks for you to emulate that won’t make you break a sweat. So crack the wine, slip into something more comfortable and get started on enjoying your precious time off.

Saturday night: If there’s one thing we’ve learned through experience, it’s this: The fussier the outfit, the less a guy “gets” it. So by that standard, Style Council member Jamie Chung has picked out the ultimate guy-hot outfit. Her breezy black halter dress, delicate chain necklace and classic black accessories make you look like an 11 with about a 2’s worth of effort.

This LOFT dress is flattering and affordable at just $45, and these Steven by Steve Madden cage heels are the perfect complement — not to mention half-off the original price and perfect with jeans, pencil skirts and much more.

Miranda Kerr maxi

Sunday brunch: Already wondering how to work your wardrobe in these transitional weeks between summer and fall? Leave it to Miranda Kerr to make it look like a breeze. The star pairs a beach-perfect maxi dress with that denim jacket we’ve been begging you to buy, then tops it all off with a colorful scarf for a look that’s great for a breezy morning well into a warmer day of shopping — just ditch the jacket and tie the scarf around your purse.

We know you’ve already got the perfect striped maxi, so add that new jean jacket that you’re going to buy right now and splurge on an amazing scarf — perhaps one from star-loved line Theodora & Callum?

Monday morning: Leather for the office? Yes, it can be done. Emmy Rossum pairs her cute, A-line number with a long-sleeved print blouse by Karen Zambos, a ladylike purse and cute Mary Janes for a fun, fresh look that can be altered according to how conservative your workplace is (for example: Swap a pencil skirt in for the flippy mini or wear a crisp button-up to give the outfit a more conservative feel).

Ready to give it a go? Pair this vegan leather skirt from Glamorous with a bold print top from Calvin Klein and some fairly flirty Mary Janes (LOFT again…should we just sign over our paycheck to them now?) and call it a day.
Tell us: Which outfit(s) will you try this weekend?
