You sleep in…. Drink champagne and orange juice before noon…. Wear your sunglasses for the entire meal… Reservations are strongly recommended… And you carefully map out your weekend stops at your desk all week… We are talking about brunch culture!
This trend of the in-between meal is nothing new, but it has definitely become an event unto itself, complete with its own dress code! Brunch is something we can look forward to all week, so it makes sense that you would want to step out in style. The key is to look effortless, so here are a few of my brunch uniform must-haves!
You absolutely need these, not only do they make you look uber-cool, but they can hide any indiscretions under your eyes from the night before. These Nine West Retro rectangle sunglasses come to the rescue time and time again. Look cool and chic in these tortoiseshell print beauties as you eyeball the #brunchspread in front of you.
If you are looking for something a little more dramatic, consider picking up these G by Guess Cat-eye sunglasses. Even brunch requires a touch of sass.
distressed is the new put together
Boyfriend jeans, jean jackets, shorts, overalls…pretty much, distressed denim anything will work! An accent of distressed denim brings the perfect aesthetic to any bottomless mimosa special. Sport the hottest trend with YMI’s Floral Embroidered Destructed Skinny Jeans (just don’t tell your friends you got them on sale!)
It kind of says: “I’ve been waiting so long for the weekend I ripped my jeans.”
strap into the best meal of the day
Lastly, and my personal favorite, sandals!
After a week of contemplating whether you should wear heels or flats, it feels oh-so-good to let your little piggies get some sunshine! Brunch is the perfect time of day for happy hour on the patio, so show off that fresh pedicure in a pair of stylish sandals. Try your size in a pair of Corkys Kenzie’s gladiator sandals to give your look some texture.
