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

07/05/2013 at 04:49 PM ET

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.

Hilary Duff shorts AKM-GSI

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.

Jessica Alba skirt

Sunday Brunch: You probably noticed this Jessica Alba look in our Love Her Outfit gallery. And since it has such amazing brunch and beach potential, we think you need to crib the style this weekend. For your base, try a bikini like this bandeau top and string bottom combo on sale now at Victoria’s Secret. Get the same flowy vibe as Alba’s Tolani maxi with a skirt like this Ikat print one from Forever 21 (It’s only $17.80!). Top with a crisp white tank, your go-to summer sandals and a pair of sunnies to complete the look. You’ll be set for wherever the day takes you.

Miranda Kerr floral dress
Splash News Online

Monday morning: A printed dress like Miranda Kerr’s will help clear away the Monday morning blues. Especially after a long holiday weekend. Luckily, there’s no need to blow your paycheck on Kerr’s Erdem number, because we mapped out an office-appropriate look that’s similar to the supermodel’s for a fraction of the price. Enter this floral-printed sheath ($76.36) by Asos. The yellow color and bold flower pattern are both perfect for summer. Add a pair of classic pumps (we like this gold-accented pair by Guess on sale for $59.40) and prepare to get a whole lotta of compliments from your coworkers.

Tell us: Which outfit(s) will you try this weekend?

A little too much for Monday morning but the rest are cute! The dress on Monday is gorgeous, but no one wants to work that hard to get ready on a Monday. lol

I’m wearing something similar to Jessica’s Sunday brunch outfit to MY Sunday brunch. I love simple tank tops and flowing skirts in this hot weather.

I’m more curious about what appear to be bruises on the thighs in the top photo. On a Saturday night date night I might wear capris to cover them up …


*The shorts outfit is cute for young people going out on the town.
*Jessica’s outfit would probably be labeled as sloppy if it was on a chubby woman at K-Mart.
*The Monday morning look is beautiful but must be difficult to look that good first thing in the morning.
