WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

The middle of summer is upon us, and you still have not seen some of your childhood friends. Don’t worry, it is not worth the stress! One of the best ways to catch up with them is to go out to brunch. One of my favorite places to dine is at Friend of a Farmer in Gramercy Park. With typical breakfast choices, Friend of a Farmer delivers a country vibe to the neighborhood and makes dining pleasant and relaxing. A true Fashionista/o’s brunch experience not only involves chatting and chewing but also requires some planning in what to wear when picking a perfect outfit.

In this case, this Fashionisto chose a sophisticated, preppy and classic look that he feels the most comfortable in. He is wearing khaki shorts, Sperry Top-Siders and a Polo Ralph Lauren gingham, button-down sport shirt. This classic shirt exhibits the perfect summer color: marmalade orange. Yum, doesn’t that make you want to slurp on a refreshing glass of orange juice? The vibrant yet calming color gives his outfit a little kick. Shades of orange are also trending this summer. If this Fashionisto gets too hot, he can simply roll up his sleeves—perfect!

A great primary addition to his outfit is the Invicta watch seen above. Not only is it crucial to wear a watch to keep track of time, it is also essential to add style. This Fashionisto throws his look together with Clubmaster Classic Ray-Ban sunglasses.

One Simple Change: Just finished brunch and don’t have plans for the rest of the weekend? Pack up a bag of clothes and take a weekend getaway trip with your buddies to the Hamptons. Swap out those khaki shorts for a pair of navy swim trunks. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen!
