Spring is finally in full swing and here in Florida, going to brunch is a go-to weekend outing. As college students, our stereotypical outfits consist of running shorts and college tees- always comfy, sometimes cute. Us college students love our comfortable class attire, but sometimes, having an occasion to dress up and glam out is needed. Brunch offers the chance to go shopping, get something to eat, have a photo shoot and just have fun with your friends. However, for many guys and gals, having an excuse to dress up means taking the chance and going all out, so brunch is the perfect occasion for that!

When I look at this Fashionista’s outfit, I definitely think that it was inspired by classic and retro style. The staple item in this look was this bright red sweetheart neckline dress while adding some chic accessories to spice up the dress for the perfect best friend brunch date. Adding a statement necklace brings in the modern trend of statement jewelry and adding nude heels definitely dresses up the look. To finish everything off, we kept the makeup simple while keeping the eyes the main focal point with some winged eyeliner and rose gold eyeshadow. This look was easy to put together since Fashionistas and Fashionistos always have a simple piece to work around (like an LBD or plain dress) and the accessories are truly what changes the occasion of the outfit!

One Simple Change: Want to dress this dress down for class or a day of shopping? Add a jean jacket with some simple flats for a more laid back and comfortable look!
