It's the First Weekend of Spring! Here's What to Wear

03/21/2014 at 06:38 PM ET

How should you celebrate the first weekend of spring? By throwing a going away party for your tights drawer. Okay, it’s not exactly that time yet, but it is time to bring out the self tanner and let your legs see the sun. So we rounded up three celeb-inspired looks to take you from a fun night out through Monday morning looking like a pro.

Saturday night: After a long week, it’s exciting to dress up. Whether you have a date on the books or just want to get a little glam with friends, Shay Mitchell’s LBD screams, “It’s the weekend!”

Unless you want to shell out $520 for the Pretty Little Liars star’s Yeojin Bae lace mini, we think you should check out this way cheaper option — a Forever 21 bodycon number for under $25. You can even layer it with a leather jacket and pair with booties for a more dressed-down feel.

Reese Witherspoon dress, booties, hat

Sunday brunch: Reese Witherspoon has been getting a lot of style play from us recently, because the actress keeps turning it out. And her latest look — a blue Isabel Marant dress, denim jacket and Rag & Bone booties — is super easy to steal.

Get a similar vibe with this blue drop-waist Lucky dress that you can wear from now through fall. And since Coachella is coming up, an easy way to share in the festival spirit (without the whole flower crown thing) is by sporting a fun wide-brim topper like this one from Urban Outfitters.

Monday morning: No, we’re not suggesting you show up to work showing a slice of midriff. We really picked Nikki Reed’s look because of that awesome, spring-friendly leopard midi coat. Okay, and we wanted to give our Celeb Style Council member a special shoutout.

Want to recreate her look? (Yea, you do.) Then pair a similar topper (we have our eyes on this jacquard one from Anne Taylor) with some black trousers (Nikki’s are BlankNYC) and a coordinating top from your closet. Add a pop of color via some colorful pumps like this chic Chinese Laundry pair (now 20 percent off!). You’ll be starting off the week on a (style) high note.

Tell us: Which look will you wear this weekend?

Where I am the current wind chill is 18 degrees. Think I’ll be wearing a bit more clothing……

The coat Nikki Reed is wearing is from the Canadian label Smythe, and it’s from their Spring 2014 collection. I have the same one!

Well. These clothes are way too dark in color, but very cute.
Living in a resort town where we live in an eternal spring , this doesn’t cut it.
Bring out the brights! We’ve been in brights and shorts all winter long.

The blonde woman in photo is not Reese Witherspoon am quite sure.

*Sigh* We will never be able to wear outfits like that this year. At least it seems like it. We’re currently getting 15cm of snow and it’s -22. (Canada)

Mother nature can suck it.

Probably a nice pink dress in the sunshine that I got from Old Navy or a tank top with sweatpants or leggings.
