From Date Night to Brunch, Exactly What to Wear This Weekend

01/03/2014 at 05:23 PM ET

You’re probably tired of dressing up for holiday parties. So this weekend we suggest you put away the LBDs, jumpsuits and sequins and reach for more laid-back looks instead. And since after-Christmas sales are still happening all over, you might want to indulge in some retail therapy as well.

Saturday night: We know what you’re thinking: These jeans would only work if you’re going on a date with one of the Kings of Leon. But we think most guys would appreciate a laid-back, distressed jeans and leather jacket look. And even if you don’t have a Tinder date on the books, this relaxed style still looks cute for some casual cocktails with friends, without looking like you tried too hard. (Miranda Kerr is the queen of looking effortlessly flawless without overdoing it.)

These Big Star ripped bottoms are majorly reduced from $142 to under $60 and the rips aren’t too over-the-top. And if you want to brave a fringe faux leather jacket, we like this one from Urban Outfitters. Or for a more basic look, this Bar III topper is more than half off at Macy’s.

Sunday brunch: Bottomless mimosas won’t be enough to keep you warm this weekend. You need a cozy, fur-embellished sweater jacket like Nicole Richie‘s. In our shopping carts right now? This black and heather gray topper from Forever 21 for $59.80. Yes, it’s on the pricey side for the brand, but the last time an editor spent over $40 on a topper from there, she loved it and got tons of compliments.

And you already own the rest of this outfit – just add gray skinnies and black ankle boots. Or if you’re currently enduring Snowmageddon on the East Coast, you might want to wear some more practical footwear.

Monday morning: Okay, we don’t usually suggest jeans for work, but if you pull the look together with a polished coat and button-down like Jaime King, we think it can totally work. But feel free to substitute the dark denim for cropped black trousers like these or a faux-leather pencil skirt like this one.

As for the coat, you might like this double-breasted camel topper (on sale at ASOS!) all season long. While you’re at it, check out these suede Nine West boots, which are also — you guessed it — on sale.

Tell us: Which look will you wear this weekend?
