New York Fashion Week is (finally) over, which means we’re stashing our artfully layered ensembles and opting for maximum ease and plenty of denim for our well-deserved days off. And that cute-but-comfy plan is extending well into the workweek with an effortless, fall-ready look. Care to join us? Check out our outfit inspiration below.
Saturday night: Scientifically proven fact: Guys looooove a girl in tight blue jeans. So we have a feeling Jessica Alba‘s hubby Cash Warren is a big fan of these sexy J Brands. But Alba gave her blues a little night-out boost thanks to some expert print-mixing (plaid and leopard, huh?) and some super-sexy teal heels.
Want to get the look? First, shimmy into your favorite pair of second-skin denim. Then add a plaid button-up (this Rails top is marked down from $115 to just $19!), leopard clutch (use a Banana Republic discount code to get this one for 35% off) and some gorgeous (and on-trend) pumps. Be sure to get up from your table a lot so he can watch you walk away.
Sunday brunch: And here are the jeans your girlfriends will love: Relaxed, ripped and so worn-in they’re like wearing a tee. Top them with a great patterned top and light sweater so you can sit outside for the last sunny “summer” days, then add chunky wedges to complete the boho vibe (Vanessa Hudgens would give you high marks!)

Monday morning: And finally, let’s all thank Amanda Seyfried for making our Monday mornings a little easier. We fully plan on emulating this outfit — it’s just a simple shift, a great jacket and classic heels, but somehow all put together it’s the perfect mix of transitional, stylish and professional.
Start with the dress (this Asos one – on sale! – is similar) and jacket, then alter the rest of the look depending on your office. Keep the sandals and loose locks if you’re somewhere creative; swap them out for pumps and a ponytail somewhere more conservative. Regardless, relish in the fact that it took you thirty seconds to get ready this morning.
