Summer is slipping away, but this weekend’s forecast calls for sunshine, seasonal temperatures … and style!

To help you figure out what to wear while you’re out on Saturday and Sunday, we’ve taken a page from Eva Mendes, who caught our eyes this week with her deceptively dressy look.

The actress’s T-shirt and skirt — which she wore to walk her pup through Los Angeles — are casual, basic pieces you might have in your closet, too. But what really brings the outfit together are the star’s smart accessories: the neutral belt, wedges and cross-body bag, plus her bright shades. (Her sweet updo helps, too.) Though nothing she’s wearing is so super-fancy, the accessories make what could be a schlumpy outfit somewhat upscale.

If you want to wear something similar this weekend (click here to peruse our looks for less), be sure to at least wear a belt, and go for some semi-fancy footwear — no flip-flops allowed! Then Tweet your outfit to us @StyleWatchMag; we’d love to see the results. Tell us: What are your weekend plans?
