We guarantee you already have options in your closet that are just right for any brunch spot. Whether you’re channeling the classic workwear aesthetic, going for a garden tea party fit, or dressing like a casual cool girl, the possibilities are endless.

01. A long skirt & sweater

Ever since that TikTok sound went viral I’ve been pulling out my long skirts weekly. A midi or maxi skirt is the perfect way to dress up without being too dressy. Pairing it with a nice sweater and trendy loafers completes the It Girl outfit. Top it off with your favorite handbag and you’re ready to go.
