What Should I Wear to Brunch?
Brunch is all about the venue and the audience. If you and the ladies are heading to your local coffee shop for the ultimate bonding session, then you can definitely go more casual. If you are meeting with your coworkers, it’s time to be a little more formal.
Wear some light layers for those semi-chilly brunch dates. Adding a shawl or light jacket are excellent choices and brings a little flare into the late mornings. Some of the best outfits to put together are a trendy jumpsuit and an oversized coat.
You can even try a minimalist approach while presenting a fashionable ensemble. Mini skirts never go out of style. So pair that flouncy ruffled skirt with a bold chic top and an oversized sweater jacket.
Adding dynamic accessories to your ensemble can bring out the fun and bright aspects of your personality. Think all about texture. For instance, scarves, sunglasses, and straw bags can be a conversation starter as well. Don’t forget your purse: look for a crossbody bag if you need the space to carry your necessities or a clutch if all you need are your cards.
Don’t be afraid to rock bold colors or, better yet, bold prints! These bright dashes can offer some sunshine in your life. Prints like tie-dye and animal print have never been hotter. If you want just a hint, do a bold shirt with black leggings.
You never know; you might have just created the newest wardrobe staple!
Athleisure is such a huge trend now. Do you like to get your morning run in before you start your day? Bring a loose button-up shirt and tie it into a crop top style with your sneakers or slides. This Broadway-worthy quick change is a great example of an elevated look that can transition with your busy lifestyle.
What Brunch Looks Are Trending Right Now?
Consider the season when dressing for brunch. The current season will not only dictate how much you bundle up but also the color schemes and fabrics that are trending. For example, for the warmer months, flowy skirts and loose tops are in. For chillier times, plaid and earth tones are a sure win.
Leggings will never go out of style. Its versatile trend is perfect for any occasion. Colorful leggings in a fun print and loose tops offer equal parts style and comfort. Dress this up with low heels, or keep it casual with your favorite white sneakers.
You can also layer leggings with skirts, especially on a windy day. Leggings are a layering essential to stay fashionable no matter what Mother Nature brings.
Sweatshirts and Hoodies
The fall season might as well be known as hoodie and crewneck season! This is usually the time when we slip on our most comfortable and warm hoodie as we head out the door.
However, sweatshirts, cardigans, and hoodies have adapted to be more than just an essential garment for warmth. These come in a variety of prints, including animal print and stripes will be an instant fall brunch trend.
Chic Jumpsuits and Rompers
Jumpsuits and rompers have become a favorite trend for women (and just about everyone) recently. Depending on the fabric, jumpsuits can even transition for a cocktail party. On the other hand, the jumpsuit in a soft fabric is perfect for running out the door.
For those nice low hassle brunch dates of summer, the romper is an excellent choice. Add an extra unexpected pop of style with an off-the-shoulder romper or one with an intricate back.
Crossbody bags will pair great with your brunch outfit with the girls in town. Whether it be a casual venue or a lovely tea in a sophisticated cafe, crossbody bags have the finishing touch for your wardrobe. Not only can you pack your everyday carry, but with a long strap, they’re much harder to leave at your table on the patio.
