There is something special about brunch season. Even as summer starts to come to a close there is something extra special about the fact that so many delicious dining establishments offer brunch menus making the weekends that much more exciting. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t crawl through my week with the thought of brunch at the end of the tunnel keeping me motivated! Maybe it’s the delectable foodie concoctions being offered or the great deals on mimosas and bloody mary’s that have me buzzing with excitement…(pun intended) Or maybe it’s the fact that it’s a fantastic excuse to get together with friends and wear some adorable outfits. Perhaps it’s a combination of all the above 😉
Brunching is not to be taken lightly, and that’s why getting dressed for the occasion shouldn’t be taken lightly either. There is no better time to show off some of your favorite daytime outfits that aren’t acceptable for work—after all, when else would you get to wear them?! If you’re gearing up to get the gals together for a fabulous brunch one last time before labor day rolls around, be prepared for all the Instagrams to ensue and get your brunch outfit on point. These 3 summer brunch style ideas below will have your look picture-perfect for summer brunch.
The casual jeans look
Brunch is meant to be relaxing and indulgent. When heading to brunch with your friends, you don’t need to look as polished as you would with your parents. Keep it casual and cool with some light-wash jeans, a simple yet playful striped blouse, and a contrasting handbag, like the polka dot one shown here. You’ll be comfortable enough to enjoy your pancakes, but you’ll also be surprisingly stylish when you keep things simple.
Many people like to use brunch as an excuse to wear a flirty sundress that flows in the breeze and allows your body to breathe. I say go for it! Sundresses are essential in the summertime, and there are so many adorable frocks just begging to be brought to brunch. Try a trendy look with a high-neck halter style like this one, and it’ll bring you beyond brunch into whatever other activities you have planned for your beautiful weekend day.
Days of denim
Denim is one of the most stylish fabrics of the season, so when it doubt, throw on a chambray shirt. You can pair it with some quirky patterned shorts, many of which are loose and comfy for after-brunch walking around! Then, finish off the look with an androgynous touch like some on-trend, lace-up flats, as this page suggests. Flats are much better comfort-wise compared to heels, and lace-ups will add just the right amount of detail to a cool, on-trend outfit.
As you are getting ready for brunch, don’t forget that some of the most important clothing items are the last-minute add-ons. Experiment with that panama hat you’ve been dying to wear and layer on those gorgeous necklaces like you’ve seen celebrities do. You’ll be dressed to the nines in no time, making brunch your most stylish event of the week.
