We'd rather not spend our Saturdays laboring over the perfect outfit, so we planned ahead and styled up something polished but cool enough for the weekend. With a nod to some of our favorite street-style looks and a few key trends, this style equation keeps it easy while managing to look a lot more interesting than your average denim and sweater combos. We traded leggings and solid skinnies for a more lively, printed pair, then swapped dressed-down sneakers for the downtown alternative, a slightly heeled (and still walkable) ankle boot. For the casual, cool-girl counterpart, just finish with a military jacket or anorak, and you're out the door and on to enjoying brunch, a movie, and an afternoon of shopping (or wherever else your day off may take you) in 10 minutes or less — we promise.
