WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

Brunch is about more than just the eggs and waffles. It’s about taking the perfect Instagram shot of the previously mentioned eggs and waffles. It’s also an excuse to sleep in a little bit later and then find the perfect outfit that will also look great on Instagram. When I think brunch attire, feminine dresses are the first attire to come to mind. This Fashionista knows exactly what to wear to brunch. Learn how to copy her look.

A gingham, black and white printed maxi dress is the star of this ensemble. Maxi dresses are always an easy and comfortable option, appropriate for just about any occasion. I love the cute details on this dress, like the tiers and buttons. This Fashionista adds a fun touch to her look by using a denim shirt as a layering piece. Tying a button-up shirt over a dress or even a tank is a unique way to mix up your wardrobe. A simple white cross body bag pops against the darker maxi dress and is ideal to hang on the back of your chair while brunching. Printed gladiator sandals with just enough color complete this look.

One Simple Change: Want to take this look from brunch to dinner? Trade the chambray shirt for a leather moto jacket. Gingham print pairs well with an edgier piece like a leather jacket for an unexpectedly cool combination. Switch out the sandals for an open toe, heeled ankle boot. Or, try a brightly colored boot for an edgy pop of color.
