What to Wear

Brunch has its own dress code. It’s that happy medium between casual cool and prim and proper. With more fashion freedom, brunch is a perfect time to try out new pieces and new trends. It also doesn’t hurt that the food is fantastic. It’s where quiche and Bloody Mary’s decorate the table and stories from the night before receive laughs or gasps. Achieving the effortlessly chic look for brunch can be a daunting task on a Sunday morning but this Fashionista proved that it’s possible.

This Fashionista’s ensemble displays the casual chicness that is brunch appropriate style. With a simple, white top, the focus is on the high-waisted, tribal print pants. She keeps the jewelry to a minimum for the casual spring event and chose a wedge for a comfortable, yet stylish shoe. With warm weather finally gracing Virginia, jeans and leggings are no longer the only option for pants. This Fashionista’s tribal print pants are eye-catching as well as comfortable. The loose, airy wide-leg is perfect for brunching outside in warm weather.

I’m a fairly short person so wedges are my favorite kind of shoe. When I spotted this Fashionista wearing a pair, I was excited that I could finally profess my love for this style of heel. Her wedges work with her wide-leg pants to elongate her legs but don’t have the formal aspect of a regular heel. These wedges blend well with the overall look and they are comfortable for strolling to that favorite brunch spot. The blend of the casual tee and the patterned pants is the best of casual and trendy, a perfect blend for brunch.

One Simple Change: Spring and summer are festival seasons and this brunch look can easily be adjusted for festival attire. Replace the white T-shirt with a cute crop top and place a flower crown on your head and you’ll be ready to celebrate.
