When it comes to brunch, my feelings about the occasion are simple: It should be enjoyed at any given opportunity. I would brunch every day if I could (preferably with a mimosa in hand). However, there is something quite lovely about keeping brunch as a treat, especially when it presents you with a reason to wear an outfit you love.
Deciding what to wear to brunch has a lot of variables. You want to look stylish, that's a given, but you also want to be comfortable, particularly if you're having a brunch of the bottomless variety. That said, because you'll spend most of your time sitting, you don't necessarily need to think about the practicality of your look. In fact, brunch might give you the chance to wear the more fanciful clothes, shoes and accessories in your wardrobe once more after being overlooked for much of the last 18 months.
To illustrate the sheer scope of brunch outfit ideas out there, I've rounded up nine impressive ensembles that ensure you'll look the part for the most stylish meal of the day. Scroll below to see them and to shop any pieces you might need to re-create them for yourself.
1. SLOUCHY SUITING + TRAINERS
Pick the right silhouette, and we promise a suit will be just as comfortable as your joggers but 100% more polished.
2. FANCY HANDBAG + MINISKIRT
Chances are you'll be going home to rest after your brunch session, which means you needn't take a huge, practical bag with you. Instead, opt for your teeniest, fanciest arm candy.
4. SHIRT + BIKE SHORTS
Leggings are a solid brunch option, particularly if you style them with a cool shirt as Jessica Torres did, but we think biker shorts make for a cool summertime alternative to ankle-grazing styles.
After 2020, we're reluctant to save our best dresses for last. Give your prettiest frocks a brunchtime-spin with a pair of flat, tan sandals. They'll make your outfit look more effortless in an instant.
