What to Wear This Weekend, From Date Night to Brunch
Katy Perry‘s not the only style chameleon around. We know that you’ve got many style facets just waiting for their moment to shine. So we put together three distinct looks for your weekend plans, from va-va-voom vixen to casual cutie to polished professional, to allow you to make the most out of your closet — and play up all your best sides.

Saturday night: Yes, we’re going to miss warm temperatures too, but when we get to break out leather skirts this cute, it makes it a whole lot more fun to leave summer behind. Ali Larter’s zippered J Brand “Maxine” leather pencil and casual white tee embody that “effortlessly hot” thing guys love — and then she amps the “gal on the prowl” look up to 11 with some judiciously chosen leopard heels and a coordinating clutch. Wisely, though, she keeps her makeup and hair low-key to avoid going totally over the top.
Don’t have a grand to spend on the skirt? Go faux with this $34 Calvin Klein number, tuck in your favorite semi-sheer tee and then slip into these $49 Nine West leopard heels. Add some lip gloss and prepare to hear screeching tires in your wake.
Sunday brunch: On the off chance your Sunday brunch has relocated to an orchard for some cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking (and hey, if that’s the case, can we come?), our Style Council member Kristin Cavallari has located your perfect ensemble. She wore army green 3×1 jeans with her coziest oatmeal cableknit and a pair of suede ankle booties (comfy and great for getting those apples your friends can’t reach!). Cool sunnies and easy hair completed the look.
Update your skinny jeans wardrobe with a similar pair from James (marked down to $45.97 if you buy now) in the wear-everywhere hue (like camouflage, army green is a new neutral). And you have our word that the cost-per-wear of these $90 BCBG Max Azria booties will be mere pennies by the time you’re through with them — they’re that versatile.

Monday morning: When we saw these pics of Dianna Agron getting cozy with new love Nick Mathers at the Veuve Clicquot polo match in L.A. Sunday, our first thought wasn’t “Ooh, romance!” but “Ooh, we bet that dress is cute!” Well, great news: Not only is it actually darling, but it’s also on sale and comes in two colors at Tory Burch. She added simple, neutral suede pumps but you could dress this up with any color and still look pretty, professional and kinda genius, since you saved half the retail price.
Want a similar look for a little less money? Leave it to Ann Taylor to come through with something easy and elegant for $60. Add simple gold jewelry and a suede pump and you’re all set for the office.
