What to Wear This Weekend, From Date Night to Brunch
Three cute ideas from three lovely ladies
We really want access to all these ladies’ closets. Barring that, we found really cute lookalikes for less. Ready for a weekend full of fabulous outfits? Let’s get started.
Saturday night: If you don’t have fancy plans for Saturday night, you may want to make some — this dress is that good. Allover sequins can sometimes read “party girl,” but Olivia Palermo’s has a belted waist and mid-calf hem to add a classy, grown-up edge to it. We won’t fault you if you want to keep things simple with metallic or black pumps and a clutch, but to take it to the next level, you can add accessories with textural sparkle to play off the dress, like Palermo did.
This pretty, flattering sequin Lauren Ralph Lauren dress has a similarly grown-up vibe and ladylike cut. For $58, this shimmery Glint clutch will get you tons of mileage and has serious celeb appeal. And these mixed-metal White House Black Market heels would surely get Palermo’s stamp of approval for advanced sequin mixing.
Sunday brunch: If you don’t have all these pieces in your wardrobe, you should, so consider this shopping trip an investment. Every girl could use a flattering, flowy print blouse, a comfy moto-style jacket, great black jeans and metallic pumps — they come in handy when you want to eat a ton of pancakes, drink a ton of mimosas and leave looking just as fabulous as you did when you arrived.
Ready to buy your all-time favorite outfit? Here’s the jacket (on sale for $50), the silk top (marked down to $103), our favorite black skinnies of the moment ($115 at Madewell and totally worth it) and some great metallic heels for $40. Your closet will thank you.

Monday morning: Oh, Kate. Your wardrobe is so exceptionally amazing. We really like this fun update on the suit to liven up a Monday morning at a conservative office. All the elements are there: Fitted jacket (hers is Max Mara), ladylike skirt (hers is pleated), conservative hose (very in right now) and sensible heels. It’s totally can’t-miss.
Here’s a similarly-styled jacket for $140 that will look equally cute with jeans, a Brooks Brothers pleated skirt in this season’s hot fabric, velvet, and then add your hose of choice and some cute pumps. If you manage to achieve her amazing hair, we’re going to need details.
