Brunch has always been an imperative part in any Fashionista’s diet. From dressing for an afternoon splurge with a special someone, to simply indulging with the girls, the perfect brunch outfit is crucial. Dresses are always an appropriate route, but may sometimes come off as too dressy. While at the same time, shorts and a tee can make you seem a bit underdressed. Where’s the happy medium?!
I found this Fashionista casually strolling down a cute area in Lincoln Park, on her way to meet her brother at a restaurant that recently opened. She is wearing the perfect outfit for slaying some french toast. Her ripped boyfriend jeans create this casual yet trendy compliment to her adorable musty gray booties. By adding a little height to a casual denim, she has achieved the art of looking dressy, yet comfortable and easygoing. Her jeans are an absolute must-have in terms of denim wear this summer. They accessorize perfectly, and can be dressed up or down for really any occasion. I am happy to see such neutral gray, oppose to a harsh black bootie — lighter gray is the ideal color for summer weather.
This Fashionista is also rocking a backward baseball cap — an accessory that is, more often than not, overlooked and under-appreciated. It adds some color to the outfit and also keeps the look casual and sporty. The white tank top crisps off her ensemble and brings the entire look together. Brunch is a great setting to show off your day wear while combining an elegant shoe and purse. The shape and elegance of her purse “fancies up” the casual pieces that she is already donning. Darker bags are fine in the summer as long as there are lighter tones shown throughout the outfit.
A casual yet fancy twist is absolutely the way to go when dinning out for brunch. From this Fashionista’s ripped jeans to her fabulous bag and booties, she has definitely mastered the science of brunch apparel.
