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

03/14/2014 at 05:51 PM ET

Your weekend should be stress-free, which means avoiding all wardrobe-related meltdowns. (You know the ones where you just stare blankly into your closet on the verge of tears.) So we rounded up three celeb-inspired looks to take you from a fun night out through Monday morning looking like a pro.

Krysten Ritter crop topFameFlynet

Saturday night: We know what you’re thinking: This look is bold. But it’s time to move past your fear of crop tops. And if you want to take a baby step at trying the trend, we suggest you use Krysten Ritter as your spiritual crop top guide. The star shows off the most flattering part of her midriff (above the belly-button and below the breast bone) in a high-waisted pencil skirt and matching shirt (both Jonathan Simkhai). Plus, coordinating sets are huge right now.

Guess what? We found very similar separates for less than $100 (together!). Nab this I ‘Heart’ Ronson for JC Penney crop top to wear with this Express knit midi skirt. Then pair with your favorite pumps for an outfit that your friends will want to swipe and that guy you are dating will want to, well, you know …

Sunday brunch: To be honest, we just wanted an excuse to talk about how amazing Allison Williams looks in this photo. (Flawless, right?) And we also want a pair of her cropped drawstring Brunello Cucinelli pants. (They look ridiculously comfortable and chic at the same time!) Then we realized they’d be perfect for brunch, so we decided to track down a similar pair.

Our pick? This style from Lilla P. And since we know you have a white button-down in your closet, the rest is pretty easy. (P.S.: If you’re not the type to wear high heels to brunch, we think you can totally dress down this look with flats or a wedge sneaker.)

Reese Witherspoon black separates

Monday morning: Monday morning would be so much easier if we woke up looking like Reese Witherspoon in this exact outfit. Her chic black menswear-inspired look feels like the fresh take on the pencil skirt, collared chambray shirt combo we’ve been living in.

Want to swipe a page from her style handbook? You might want to get a pair of these ASOS pants to team with a blazer like this one (also ASOS). Add a white tee and pile on your favorite gold necklaces to complete the look. By the way, since the weather isn’t sandal-friendly in most of the country, we’d pair the look with a great pump: These Gamin d’Orsay heels from InStyle‘s new Nine West collection are currently in our shopping carts!

Tell us: Which look will you wear this weekend?

I like Reese, but I’m getting tired of her ‘ladies who lunch’ look at her age.
