What to Wear

The University of Iowa might be known as the number one party school, but we know how to keep it classy, especially when it comes to Sunday brunch. We have a fantastic restaurant that takes the meaning of brunch to a new level. With choices ranging from Belgian waffles to smoked salmon, it is the best place to spend a Sunday morning. They even have a dessert table filled with chocolate covered strawberries and every kind of cake you could ever want. It’s the perfect place to go on a date or with your visiting parents. Given the variety of brunch locations, it is important to have a versatile outfit that would fit in an elegant dining room or your girlfriend’s apartment.

I spotted this Fashionista on a warm Saturday morning. Her gorgeous peacoat was the first thing that jumped out at me. Colors are always important; whether you swear by the classic black (that would be me) or want to branch out, you need to pick a color that speaks to you. If you don’t feel comfortable in the bright pink coat, then don’t buy it, but I am super glad this Fashionista chose such a happy color. It contrasts well with the rest of her all-black ensemble. The lace detail on her dress makes the outfit more elegant and suited for the time frame that brunch is held in. Her black flats provide her with comfort.

This Fashionista’s cross-body bag works for so many occasions, but is perfect for brunch as it allows you to fill up your plate at the buffet while making sure no one swipes your debit card. If you’re a fan of mimosas or just after that cheesy omelette, brunch is a must for every Fashionista. Just remember to keep it classy and comfortable because we all need a little room for dessert.

One Simple Change: I love to make lace look edgy and if you agree with me, pair the dress with a deep red leather motorcycle jacket. For a night out with the girls, a fun hairstyle is never wrong. A half-up, half-down style with lots of volume would add the perfect amount of grunge.
