How to Style the Perfect Fall Weekend Outfit

There’s an undeniable crispness in the air once Labor Day sweeps through, bringing the excitement of the fall social whirl, boot shopping and hot toddies with it. So we came up with the perfect weekend outfit that could take you from long, lingering brunches with friends out to afternoons spend striding the city streets looking for those fabulous fall fashions.

Start with the season’s all-important trousers in a bold solid color. Go for denim if you want to be more casual or a heavyweight cotton pant if you want a more polished look. If it’s really getting chilly where you are, you can even look for a lightweight cord.

Three Hot Ways to Style a Silk Buttondown Blouse

The silk buttondown blouse is a staple of our wardrobes, and all the chic girls at Gilt have been stocking up on the great styles from Zoe & Sam! In honor of the brand’s upcoming sale on Gilt.com (starting tomorrow June 20 at noon ET), we wanted to share our three favorite ways of taking the basic from boring to sexy in a flash!

Dressy shorts are one of those trends that seem like an oxymoron, but can be fabulous for a night out if done correctly! Tucking in a silk blouse tempers the sex appeal of teeny and sparkly shorts with a touch of ladylike modesty — and feel free to unbutton the top few buttons as you hit the dance floor. Or take it out to brunch with flat sandals, for a touch of Parisian cool.

Skinny jeans and a leather jacket are the hallmarks of the tough girl (paging Kristen Stewart!), but added a silk blouse underneath gives it an unexpected touch of prim & proper that takes it up a style notch. Great for brunch with low heels or even for work with pumps.

And paired with a pencil skirt (or in this case, a curve-hugging bandage skirt), the looser blouse balances the slim silhouette of the skirt for figure flattery. And with a blazer, it’s perfect for the office – take it off for a date night afterwards!

Shop all the great blouses in the Zoe & Sam sale on Gilt.com on June 20, starting at noon ET!
