Summertime is the perfect opportunity to call up your best friends and head to New York City for a brunch date! Unlike a fancy dinner, brunch is an occasion that doesn’t have to be too formal, but you still want to look your best. Since we are in the midst of the summer’s heat, it is important to consider the weather as a factor when choosing an outfit as well. This Fashionista has put together the perfect outfit for a brunch date with friends.

Dressed in an attention grabbing print, this Fashionista’s outfit is so fun while still being sophisticated enough for brunch. She is wearing a strapless, floor length maxi dress from Anthropologie paired with a denim jacket from Forever 21. Denim is very trendy right now for summer, so bringing in that edgy element to the look amplifies it even more. The pattern on the dress also gives the look the extra punch it needed in order to be classy enough for a brunch out with the girls. She accessorized her look with a deep blue Longchamp bag to accent the blue tones in the pattern of her dress. This bag is the perfect size for fitting sunglasses, a wallet, and other brunch essentials.

By pairing the light weight maxi dress with the distressed denim jacket, it makes the overall look more daytime appropriate, making it perfect for sitting down for a nice brunch. This look is absolutely perfect for bunch because it brings the right amount of elegance while still being fun, which is exactly what brunch is all about!

One Simple Change: Want to take this look from brunch to a fancy dinner date night out? Simply remove the denim jacket and pair the maxi dress with a statement necklace to elevate the level of sophistication.
