First let me set the scene. It’s Friday morning and you are in serious need of a bagel, a mimosa and a side or three. You text all your friends with the brunch info and everyone without a Friday class agrees that they cannot go on without sides. What comes next? You put on an amazing knit set from Urban Outfitters.
This Fashionista had the right idea when she dressed for the most important meal of the day for three reasons:
A versatile set has the power to work well with trends as well as Mother Nature. It is officially spring here on the East Coast and it is crucial to be prepared for a cool breeze on a seemingly hot day. The long-sleeve, hooded sweater in this set looks like a winter piece on its own, but the cropped style suggests a mysterious twist. A light cropped sweater is a Fashionista’s secret to conquering weather fluctuation, especially when paired with some matching knit shorts. Let’s not leave out how the pattern in this set is to die for.
Fabulous sunglasses make for a discrete recovery after a long night of cramming for finals or planning your sorority’s formal. This Fashionista wears sunglasses from Quay Australia. Quay been on the rise for quite a bit and has been spotted on fashion’s biggest names including Vanessa Hudgens, Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell. I even copped a pair of Shay x Quay’s for myself and have never felt more glam.
Light accessories make brunch what it is. A cool necklace or a statement bag sets the tone for a trendy, Insta-worthy meal with your pals. Don’t be cranky, be (slightly) swanky. It’s brunch, after all.
One Simple Change: We know this set is unique and functional, so feel free to turn it into the perfect nighttime summer look with one small adjustment. Some strappy, heeled booties like these from Steve Madden will have you looking as hot as July. I’d also suggest ditching the shades for some dark, angled eye makeup and a messy up-do.
