The Look: Saturday Brunch With The Gals

Sometimes Friday-night margs or an up-all-night toddler mean you just can’t handle a complicated outfit the next morning. Our suggestion: Do what fashion insiders do and opt for chic versions of comfy basics like jeans (but in a fresh silhouette), a hoodie (but cropped), and a denim jacket (but with fun lining).

White boots uplevel any outfit ever. Full stop.

The Look: Date Night—Nailed It

When you're able to squeeze in some "we" time, date night calls for a look that's pretty but not fussy, cool but not complicated. An oversized denim jacket (a fashion-girl fave) casually dresses down that floral maxi you wore to work.

The Look: I’m With The Band

Concerts are basically the new fashion shows, but what to do when “festival gear” (fringe, feathers, up-to-there cut-offs) just isn’t your speed? Pops of bright color and a sleek boot make for a sophisticated take on the always rock ’n’ roll denim suit. Plus, we like to think it’s something David Bowie would have worn.

The Look: The Big Interview

When our style faves are spotted running between meetings, trust us, they’re not rocking a suit and pumps. A look that’s polished but fashion-forward, like a chambray tie-neck shirt and high-waisted jeans tucked into killer boots, can still mean serious business.

The Look: Morning School Drop

The fashion set loves a uniform (not pleated skirts and knee socks, but variations on a favorite outfit). Test-drive this strategy on your school run, when early-morning drops call for quick, feel-good outfits like a trench, tee, and boyfriend jeans.

The Look: Working Girl

Nothing says “boss lady” more than a pencil skirt. But done in frayed-edge denim and paired with an oversized denim jacket, it comes off as preppy with just the right amount of punk to keep your 9-to-5 feeling fresh.

 

An oversized jean jacket softens any look and keeps it from being too severe.

The Look: Sunday Funday

You’ve got places to go and people to see, but it’s the freakin’ weekend. Goal: an outfit that puts the fun in functional. Think elevated materials (like leather) balanced with utility (chunky sneakers) and some pieces that toe the line between both (high-waisted denim mini and tie-dye turtleneck).

The Look: Weekend Getaway

Overalls, but make it fashion; one surefire way to give off that “I’ll be weekending away” vibe, even if the only apple picking you’re doing is at the grocery store. Complete the thought with a punched-up sweater and socks. And um, who says Mom can’t rock a pair of Dad sneakers?

Let us not forget the humble sock. The perfect place to show a little personality.
