Womp, womp–summer is officially coming to an end. But fear not! We’ve got three LDW looks for you that are so fun, you’ll forget all about your summer’s-over sadness and instead focus on making the most of your last weekend of summer 2013.
Saturday night: You could go traditional and choose a cute summer dress and sandals for your last official weekend night before fall–or you could take a cue from Beyoncé and rock a way edgier look. Her ripped jeans, killer platforms, Jennifer Fisher statement necklace, and oh-this-old-thing-except-not-really white tank top, paired with her intentionally-visible black lace bra, make her look so badass that you start to wonder why your mom didn’t wear such a getup when you were a babe like Blue Ivy. (And then you remember that it’s because your mom’s not Beyoncé.)
So! Ready to try it yourself? Since you likely already own a fab pair of ripped skinnies and a white tank, it’s all about accessorizing properly. First, you can snag the actual Gypsy Warrior bra she’s wearing for only $28! Then go with these awesome black boots from Boutique that happen to be on final sale for $24.99, and pick up this sweet neck bling from Coldwater Creek that also happens to be on major sale—$39.99 down from $100! And finally, don’t forget to poke your black lace bra out like you didn’t mean to.

Sunday brunch: This weekend’s egg and mimosa fest can be longer and boozier than ever, because…you don’t have to work tomorrow! Take advantage of the day by wearing a printed midi skirt like Olivia Munn’s that’s cute and stylish, yes, but also is flowy enough to be an extra-home-fries enabler. We love how she pairs it with a striped top and matching sandals to tie the whole thing together.
As far as snagging her exact look goes, red printed midi skirts are hard to find right now–but we think this adorable pink one from ASOS works just as well, and, bonus, it’s on sale for $34! Rock it with your favorite striped top and these matching Plomo Claudia Suede pink sandals for just $100, and you’re on your way to brunch perfection.
Monday BBQ hopping: Oh hey, remember how last Monday, you were stuck indoors in your office dealing with all Monday everything? Let us kindly remind you that today you’re not–which means it’s time to BBQ it up. Enter a comfy black maxi dress like Jessica Biel‘s that allows you to hop from Labor Day BBQ to the beach to the bars all in one go. Biel adds three pieces of flare (that’s right, we just made an Office Space reference to remind you once more how you are not there) with a cute thick belt, a long gold pendant necklace, and studded sandals.
To make Biel’s look your own, we suggest starting with this $78 comfy black maxi from Wallis. Then, flare yourself out with your favorite wide belt, long gold necklance, and these cute Steve Madden studded sandals for $46.86. Happy LDW!
