WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

In Miami, brunch is the most important meal of the day. Whether you’re meeting your girlfriends for eggs and bacon, or on a brunch date armed with mimosas, assembling the perfect casual, yet chic outfit to fit the occasion makes the best brunch just a little bit better.

With Memorial Day behind us, it seems only right to sport the rest of this summer’s season in pretty whites. Contrary to previous, un-evolved, stylistic guidelines, the summer sun undoubtedly calls for a white wardrobe. Not only is it refreshing, but it also brings along tranquility, versatility and, most importantly, it reflects the sun!

Although I’m up for little white dresses all year round, there’s something about summer that feels like the exemplary season for it. This Fashionista proves that it’s best to consciously reject such rudimentary rules, such as “no white after Labor Day,” with her white summer wardrobe. The Fashionista’s classic, free flowing dress makes for the perfect brunch outfit. Eye-catching accessories such as tassel earrings and fringed gladiator sandals add a little personality to the ensemble.

Since the summer’s heat demands for a wardrobe that is both light and airy, the styling approach when it comes to gathering a brunch outfit is a little more practical. It’s best to aim for fabrics that are versatile and textured. Not only will this add a cool spin to your classic look, but will undoubtedly act as your most helpful ally when beating the heat.

One Simple Change: Although this Fashionista’s look is classic and elegant, adding a pair of simple brown daytime heels will give you just the right amount of conservative glam. If you’re preparing for a date night, aim for a more romantic look by accessorizing your ensemble with jewelry and accessories with intricate detailing or lip colors that embody a darker, more sensual color palette. Colors such as deep purple and wine tend to bring about feelings of romance and passion. If your style is a little more fun and flirty, styling your white ensemble with bold colors and standout accessories, such as a statement necklace, will surely express your summer mood.
