Do you ever stand in front of your packed closet, thinking you have nothing to wear? Maybe you should take a cue from Reese Witherspoon, who’s got her easy, breezy style down to a scientific formula. Cute, bright skirt + crisp top + ankle strap sandals = no-brainer wardrobe success.
We know your schedule is jam-packed Fourth of July weekend. That’s why we’re helping you map out your wardrobe with three great looks that will take you from Saturday night through Monday looking like a pro.
Saturday night: It’s no secret that short shorts make guys go gaga. And since you’ll probably be rocking a summer glow this weekend, you should probably put your stems on display. Rip a page out of Hilary Duff’s style playbook and try bold bottoms like this geometric-print pair from Zara. Add a black tank (we like this Topshop cami) and you’re ready for a GNO or first date cocktails. And if you want to try the white pump trend, this Topshop pair might do the trick. If not, just throw on any black heels from your closet.
We should call this post, “One chambray shirt, three cute outfits.” It seems as though stars have been stepping out almost exclusively in the denim staple lately, and since we know you already have this versatile Bella Dahl top (if not, you should nab one with our exclusive discount), we wanted to show you some fun warm-weather ways to wear it — from a night out on Saturday all the way to work on Monday.

Saturday night: It’s hard to make denim-on-denim look chic (and not give off “going to the rodeo” vibes). But Miranda Kerr has mastered the trend in her Isabel Marant shorts with a light-wash chambray topper and sparkly flats, for an outfit that’s perfect for dinner with friends or a low-key date night (since there’s no guy alive who doesn’t drool over cutoffs). Check out this awesome DL1961 pair, then add ballet flats like these from Yosi Samra, or add some height with a fun colorful wedge like this pair by Nine West ($62.79).
Rather spend your day at the beach instead of trying to track down the perfect outfit? Don’t stress because we’ve got you covered with three super chic looks that will get you through the weekend– from girls night out to the office – looking like a pro.
Saturday night: Printed skirt? Check. Statement necklace? Check. Pop of color? Check and check! We’re so impressed with Jamie Chung’s effortless ability to rock several summer trends at once that we had to try this look ourselves. What better way to hit the town than with this asymmetrical mini from Topshop (an almost perfect match to Chung’s Aztec printed skirt). Pair it with your favorite loose-fitting tee, this neon bag, and this blingy necklace (on sale this weekend!) and you’ll be sure to catch that guy’s eye.
If you’d told us a few years ago that we would someday be getting hair and makeup inspiration from a medieval fantasy TV show involving dragons and swordplay, we’d have called you crazy. And yet, here we are obsessing over Khaleesi’s braids on Game of Thrones.
Which is why we were so excited to come across this roundup of DIY tutorials on how to replicate the most enviable looks from the series, and, not surprisingly, a certain mother of dragon’s hair got top billing.
Our favorite video showcases one of Daenerys Targaryen’s most enviable platinum plaited styles. It’s from the first season and features about half a dozen braids. So, yeah, it’s not for the impatient.
In another video for Beauty High, MAC Cosmetics artist Romero Jennings shares great in-depth details on emulating the bold brow/understated eye combo that’s so popular on the show. The clip also features Bumble and Bumble hairstylist Britney Williams demonstrating how to get Cersei Lannister’s signature halo of braids. Styled along the crown of the head, Williams explains the importance of getting the Queen’s look just right. “All of the curls are going away from her face in the same direction so we have that Cersei wave,” notes the hair guru, “If we switch directions we get more of a beach wave.”
