If you haven't already heard American Authors' catchy "Best Day of My Life," you're missing out. It's an upbeat song that's perfect for when you're feeling on top of the world - plus, the music video is pretty darn cute:

American Authors are from Brooklyn, New York, and of course, the music video was filmed in New York City. So, I've put together three outfits - inspired by the music video and the city itself - that will get you in the mood for the best day of your life (so far):

City Streets

The band's style is casual and urban, so channel that into an outfit perfect for roaming the New York City streets. Pair a striped tee with gray jeans, then layer on a worn-in denim jacket hoodie. A pair of studded combat boots are fun and edgy, while some red nail polish adds a nice pop of color to this otherwise neutral look.

Stars & Stripes

For a casual night out (maybe some dancing under the stars?), try this all-American look. Pair a starry dress with a plaid shirt, and use a woven skinny belt to highlight your waist. A pair of wedge espadrilles, along with some heart studs, add a cute and feminine touch. Style your hair in a crown braid, and grab a simple leather satchel to polish off the ensemble.

At the End of the Day

If your best day ever ends with curling up on the couch with a movie, this last look is for you. It starts with a NYC tee and comfy pajama pants, plus a nod to the Big Apple with some cute stud earrings. Tie your hair back with a cozy headband. Lastly, you may not have a big fuzzy monster to hang out with, but you can always spend some quality time with your favorite fuzzy slippers!
