Wherever our style-minded adventures take us, Instagram comes right along with us (are you following us yet?). This week, we took a tour of the Holiday and Resort wares to come from the likes of Gap, Mara Hoffman, and eBay's capsule collection, shot our latest video lookbook, and attended a few fashionable fetes in between. Needless to say, it's been a busy week here at Fab HQ. If you've missed a moment, it's all right here — click on to get caught up.

Jessica Alba makes dressing for the weekend entirely what it should be, as easy as it is cool. While out and about in NYC, the actress headed out in a laid-back play on khakis that we're stealing for our off-duty days. She balanced the slouchy, borrowed-from-the-boys bottoms with a sweet polka-dot blouse and strappy flat sandals. Top off the look, à la Jessica, with your own panama hat and you've got a look that takes you from errands to weekend brunch, no outfit change required.
When Dannijo and Tucker host a party, you can count on two things: bold prints and equally bold jewels to match. The celebs that flocked to the statement jeweler's and pattern pro's tea party in Beverly Hills yesterday were a lesson in pulling off brilliant color and all-over print, not to mention equally eye-catching baubles. Note: the kind of lesson that lends itself perfectly to styling chic Summer cocktail wear. If you're in need of a little inspiration, step inside — Jordana Brewster's butterfly-print pencil skirt, Mandy Moore's vibrant little sheath (and patterned wedges), and Michelle Monaghan's silky print pants are just the beginning.

With the Olympics kicking off today, we're turning our attention to team spirit, albeit with a fashionable spin. We're planning to get in on the action and watch as much as we can of the games in London, but wherever we're doing it, we're going to be spectating in style. That means red, white, and blues and Union Jack-inspired flare that we can mix and match with a seriously cool effect. Looking for some patriotic gear that won't compromise your A-game style? It's all inside, like Gap's homage to games past via awesome vintage tees, or a covetable Charlotte Olympia clutch with a bold nod to London. Let the games begin.
Now that you know how easy it is to wear the same piece a trio of ways, we're showing you another chic example to kick off your weekend warrior style. We've taken one incredible Haute Hippie jacket ($1,495) and created three distinct looks that'll work well through the weekend, from that Saturday shopping trip to Sunday brunch with the girls. Because it's such a pricey piece, you'll definitely want to get your money's worth by wearing it multiple ways and for any event, so click through now to see how we've styled it for maximum usage.
Congrats, Bedazzles After Dark!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and we just might feature you on FabSugar!
