From Date Night to Brunch, What to Wear This Weekend

07/19/2013 at 04:30 PM ET

It’s so incredibly hot in the northeast that we can’t think about wearing colors other than white, or outfits that require more than fourteen seconds to put together. Luckily these three stars seemed to be on the same page, so we present to you: What to wear this weekend, the breezy white dress edition.

Octavia Spencer white dress Munawar Hosain/Startraks

Saturday night: We’ve advised you on how to look sexy for drinks and dancing and laid back for dinner and a movie — but what if you’ve got something a little fancier planned? Octavia Spencer’s sweet Tadashi Shoji dress is the perfect number for when you know he’ll be staring at you over candles and wine all night. Between its face-framing neckline, silhouette-flattering shape and tiers of feminine ruffles, it’s exactly what Elle Woods would have worn for her “bridal … but not like I expect anything” important date dress.

Want to get a similar look for less? This Gianni Bini dress is just $52.15 and just begging for a pretty black ribbon belt and some classy pumps.

Vanessa Hudgens dress

Sunday brunch: Don’t be that girl who can’t sit outside with her friends because she needs to be in the AC. This totally breezy Lovers + Friends “Sunshine” dress (as seen on Vanessa Hudgens) is designed for al fresco dining (with the added bonus that the tented shape lets you indulge in that extra bacon). Hudgens’s black accessories (boho turban, chic bag and Joe’s pumps) give the flowy, lacy babydoll look a little edge to save it from being toothache-inducing.

Be equally breezy in this $69 Lucca Couture pleated dress — and if you’re like us and can’t bear to wear pumps on Sunday morning, you can swap in a pair of skin-baring flat sandals instead.

Monday morning: We are strong proponents of fool-proof Monday morning dressing so that you can hit snooze as often as possible. And you can’t get much easier than Aubrey Plaza’s crisp, chic Comic Con ensemble — a structured, fitted top with a sleek pencil skirt and some take-no-prisoners pink pumps. She keeps the lines clean, adding just a statement ring and nothing else. Only you have to know that a look this put-together required absolutely no effort.

Ready to replicate? We’ve got your structured top, cute skirt and spiked pink pumps right here.
