With the help of the TODAY Style Squad, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Tamron Hall, Dylan Dreyer, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford donned the styles of their dreams. From bow ties to boyfriend jeans to thigh-high boots, Jill Martin, Bobbie Thomas and Lilliana Vazquez proved that seemingly daunting fashion statements can be just as wearable as jeans and a T-shirt.

Like their new looks? You can try them at home! And join us in celebrating #WearWhatYouWant week by sharing a snap of yourself wearing what you love, and tagging @TODAYstyle.

Matt's bow ties

Despite his interest in them, Matt had always feared he couldn't pull them off.

"I always think it looks like a costume," he told the stylists.

But bow ties don't need to feel stuffy! Jill recommends finding colors that blend well with the rest of your wardrobe and pairing them with a more casual jacket or a patterned shirt.

Savannah's hip sneakers

Converse sneakers aren't just for teens any more. These cool kicks are right on trend for all ages. Pair them with your favorite pair of jeans for casual weekend wear or even with a dress for a more fashion-forward look, Jill suggests.

That's the key for Savannah, who's always wanted to know how to wear sneakers while still looking chic.

Tamron's boyfriend jeans

When paired with a ruffled blouse and blazer, boyfriend jeans create an effortlessly chic look that's perfect for a night out on the town, says Lilliana Vazquez.

The trick?

"You want them to be fitted through the hips, fitted through butt, and then baggy through the leg. That’s how you get that boyfriend jeans that look like your jeans and not your actual man's jeans," she said.

We love the mix of a girly ruffle with menswear-inspired pieces!

Dylan's over-the-knee boots

Looking fashionable and feeling comfortable at the same time is actually possible! Lilliana recommends pairing a floral shift dress with over-the-knee boots and topping it off with a long vest for a look that's perfect for just about any occasion this fall.

The look certainly came together for Dylan.

"I’m so short with stubby legs. I would never think of putting on boots this high," she admitted.

Hoda's leather pants

Yes, you really can wear leather pants! It's all about what you wear on top to make it feel sophisticated, says Bobbie Thomas.

"The trick with leather pants — it's all about the seaming and the fit," she said.

Pair them with a layered sweater for a chic outfit with a touch of rocker flair.

Hoda got a nice surprise when she tried a pair on.

"You'd think they'd be uncomfortable. They're like leggings! You can go out with your friends and have a nice night out," she said.

We love how this sweater comes already layered, so the work is done for you. Talk about an outfit made easy!

Kathie Lee's lacy bodysuit

A mod wrap dress with minimalist details is the perfect way to try out a new trend, Thomas says. Layer it over a sheer, lacy bodysuit for a look that's elegant and sexy without revealing too much.

"I've got a bunch of these," Kathie Lee admitted.
