The Fancy Affair
If your summer scrapbook is filled with more photos of you in formal wear than hanging with your friends in a pair of cutoffs, we encourage you to swap out those strappy dresses as you wrap up the last leg of weekend soirees and cocktail parties. Fashion your own sleek suit with matching separates; opt for flashy flats instead of heels; and break out an asymmetrical statement piece and architectural earrings to finish the look.
The Last-Minute Road Trip
“I love to draw inspiration from the past and mix-and-match decades,” Hyland tells us. Taking a page from her book, we paired this printed-skirt-and-bright-tank combo with an ’80s-inspired denim vest and ’60s-esque basket bag. The result is an ensemble that's polished, yet casual enough to hit up every flea market within 100 miles of home.

The "Let’s Make This Official"
Even if you've been kicking it with the same fling all summer, making it official come autumn can put a lot of pressure on the situation. Combat any DTR-talk nerves by sticking with an ensemble that keeps things easy and comfortable. A sweet off-the-shoulder sweater and billowy wide-legged pants are the perfect place to start.
The Working Girl's Weekend
As Hyland puts it, style is all about “how comfortable do I want to be versus how professional do I need to look.” And for anyone who’s too busy making rent to go to bottomless brunch, this rings particularly true. To keep your weekend work look fresh but not too stiff, try an unexpected twist on office wear with a wide-legged, pinstripe pant, chunky booties, and camouflaged tote. A slinky, black tank and minimal jewelry balance the look's statement items.
