It’s hump day, which means it’s time to start mentally planning your end-of-the-week celebrations. To help ease your wardrobe woes and worries this weekend, I’ve got you covered: Here are five outfits to keep you out on the town and not stuck in your closet when Friday rolls around. As always, all looks are under $100 total.

Friday Night Karaoke with the Girls – $85.75

Weekend outfit 1: Karaoke with the girls - Lace top, skinny jeans, metallic heels, statement earrings
Product Information: Top – Dorothy Perkins, Jeans – Forever 21, Shoes – H&M, Earrings – Charlotte Russe

You already know what your Friday night has in store: Crooning “Don’t Stop Believin'” surrounded by a table of your best girlfriends has been on the books since Monday morning. Channeling your inner glam-rockstar is simple; stand out with a shimmering top, a messy ponytail, long earrings, and strappy metallic sandals.

Saturday Morning Campus Cleanup – $96.89

Weekend outfit 2: Saturday morning campus cleanup - Ripped jeans, basic v-neck tee, scarf, hat, magenta canvas sneakers
Product Information: Top – Target, Jeans – Old Navy, Shoes – H&M, Hat – Patagonia, Scarf – Dorothy Perkins

After a long night of singing and bar hopping, it’s hard to find motivation to look cute for your Saturday AM student council campus cleanup or volunteer work.  Thankfully, I have you covered so you will look adorable – and sensible! – while walking dogs for the local shelter or cleaning up your school.

Obviously this kind of look requires very little effort, but adding a scarf, cute cap, and bright sneakers to your jeans-and-tee uniform will leave you standing out in a sea of sweatpant-clad volunteers.

Saturday Afternoon Kickboxing Class – $97.92

Weekend outfit 3: Kickboxing class - Running capris, purple sports bra, teal tank, sneakers
Product Information: Tank – Athleta, Pants – Target, Bra – Target, Shoes – DSW

Saturday afternoon is time to get your sweat on. If you’re headed to kickboxing, yoga, hiking, or the gym, wear color. You’ll be amazed at how much more motivated you’ll be when you’re looking fine in workout clothes, rather than throwing on your rattiest tee.

Saturday Night Formal – $95.90

Weekend outfit 4: Saturday night formal - Metallic one-shoulder dress, opaque tights, bow earrings, shiny black heels
Product Information: Dress – ASOS, Shoes – Payless, Tights – ASOS, Earrings – ASOS

Formal night is finally here, but it doesn’t mean splurging on a crazy-expensive gown: ASOS, H&M, and Forever 21 have some great picks for dressing up without spending your entire paycheck! The dressy look I’m loving right now is a metallic dress with opaque black tights and sky-high black pumps.

Sunday Afternoon Study Group – $97.93

Weekend outfit 5: Study group - Striped maxi dress, denim jacket, neon yellow and beige tote bag, leather flip flops
Product Information: Dress – Modcloth, Jacket – H&M, Bag – Forever 21, Shoes – H&M

The perfect study group outfit does not require an immense amount of planning. Stay casual, but look nice: A bright maxi dress and denim jacket are perfect for a spring afternoon, but don’t forget a cute tote for your books.

    The selection is quite dynamic. I’m surprised that the first outfit, albeit looking very fancy, is the cheapest one. I never work out >.< But I'm sure good work out shoes cost a big chunk of the athletic outfit.

    I stick more towards the Saturday morning look. I like to dress up but I usually stay away from heels.

    These outfits seem way too casual. Perhaps do a weekend outfit article for those of us who prefer to stay chic around the clock.
