5 Style Stars Share Their Flawless Off-Duty Looks

Just because you don't have a gaggle of photographers following you wherever you go doesn't mean you can't dress as though you do. Your weekend engagements — be they alfresco dinners, late-night drinks, or flea-market outings — are as special as those who do have someone documenting their every move. (Oh, wait, that's what your Instagram-obsessed friends are for...smile!)
So, who better to inspire your weekend wardrobe than the street-style pros who have made an art form out of looking good...all the time. We are, of course, referring to ladies like The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, Olivia Palermo, and Cosmopolitan's Shiona Turini. Not only are their ensembles cool and quirky, these ladies have the effortless and flawless part nailed, too. Click through for all the pieces you need to make these looks your own. And, be sure to cheese it for the camera.

Tali Lennox, model and artist

Tali Lennox may have only called New York City home for the last two years, but she's well versed in the city’s nonstop grind. When the London transplant isn’t painting away in her East Village crib, she’s out exploring the ‘hood — and in style, we might add.

“It's brilliant to explore the East Village because it's less manic than Soho or Midtown, and there are loads of great stores, bars, and restaurants. I like to walk through Tompkins Square Park, grab a juice from Juicy Lucy Juice Bar, take a long bike ride, have a look through the Antiques Garage (one of the best NYC shopping gems!), and play a game of pool at Lucy’s.

“You have to face the day like an urban warrior with a strong attitude and well-equipped practicality. I walk a lot, so 99% of the time, heels are a big no-no. I also don't want to spend a lot of time putting together outfits, so it's important for me to feel easygoing, like I am here in this laid-back Armani Exchange dress."

Fashion editors know you can never go wrong adding a little leopard to your look. For a night of bar hopping, keep cool in a funky crop top and flared mini. Add a simple, white blazer that can easily be thrown on or taken off.

If you know you've got an extra-special appointment this week — perhaps a romantic evening with a special someone — don't hesitate to up the glamour factor. A sexy, leather pencil skirt and sheer blouse will make your date's jaw drop, in a good way.

Ah, brunch. Our most anticipated meal of the week. But, let's be real, it's about more than just the food. It's sometimes the only time we get to catch up with our nearest and dearest. Keep cool in a black tee and printed maxi — you don't want to appear as though you tried too hard.
