The Only 3 Outfits You Need For Your Best-Dressed Fall Weekend

With the new season comes a new list of places to go, people to see, and perhaps most importantly, fall outfits to wear. As all eyes turn to autumn, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the seemingly never-ending (and often pricey) list of items you want to add to your closet — ankle booties, a leather jacket, sweaters on sweaters, something velvet... the list goes on and on. Instead of overloading on random pieces that aren’t guaranteed to pair well together, we have teamed up with H&M to style three weekend ensembles that are perfect for in-between weather to simplify your shopping.

When the week comes to a close, the first priority should always be slipping into something a little more comfortable — like dressed up denim for happy hour. On Saturdays, the world is your oyster, so opt for a look that has you ready for anything — from date night to party night and from warm days to crisp evenings. Round out the weekend by brunching hard in a coat that’s as delicious as your avocado toast. No matter what’s on your off-duty social calendar, these looks are sure to take you from Friday’s five-o’clock-feeling to Sunday Funday in style. Talk about smooth transitions.

The Happiest Hour

Featuring: Chiffon Blouse, H&M, $19.99

Lend your high-waisted boyfriend jeans a bit of bohemian flair with a lightweight floral chiffon blouse. Break out your favorite ankle booties to give the look a fall forward finish. Bottoms up.

The Go-Everywhere Ensemble

Featuring: Lace Skirt and Top, H&M, $29.99 and $9.99 (only available in stores)

Opt for all lace everything with a two-piece set in a rich red hue. Toughen up the feminine fabric with moto-inspired accessories for an outfit that works no matter where the night might lead.

The Best of Brunch

Featuring: Short Coat, H&M, $49.99

Head-to-toe black is so easy to default to on those mornings when you just can't even. Add a chic, lightweight topper (in irresistable ballet pink) and you're en route to mimosas in 60 seconds flat.
