ALL IN THE DETAILS: Birthday Girl's Brunch

Summer weekends call for Sunday brunch—which means gathering the girls (and/or guys) together and trying to figure out whether or not your outfits are equally dressy, right? It’s definitely difficult to determine whether you’re overdressed or underdressed for the occasion.

Whether you’re headed for a filet mignon eggs benedict at Isabella’s on the Upper West Side or buttermilk pancakes at Café Orlin in St. Mark’s Place, wearing the right accessories will guarantee an outfit that’s just right.

This Fashionista took a simple, feminine outfit to the next level for her celebratory brunch date (happy birthday!) by pairing a grey jersey maxi skirt and cropped lace top with a structured crossover bag from kate spade new york and classy accessories, such as her bold black sunglasses, stacks of Alex and Ani bangle bracelets and a floral-themed statement necklace.

How To: An outfit may seem plain without just the right accessories, but adding a piece of statement jewelry, such as a collar necklace or a flower necklace to your look can really make all the difference. If you’re not sure of which sunglasses to pack, a black pair like this one by Quay Australia is foolproof (and affordable). Don’t be afraid to wear a bold lip in contrast with an otherwise-neutral outfit!
