Let’s be honest—what’s not to love about brunch? From thick-cut bacon and Bloody Marys to lemon curd pancakes and bottomless mimosas—there is just. so. much. goodness! Dying to try the new hot spot touting the latest farm-to-table fare and wondering what to wear? Sunday Brunch Style is an art, and we caught up with some lovely ladies who have got it down pat. Take a peek, and get inspired!
A Pinch of Lovely is onto something brilliant with her effortless ensemble. Ripe with color and full of personality, she’s well suited for her fave brunch spot in NOLA—Galatoire’s Bistro. A relaxed dress in a bold hue provides a chic base for layering and weekend ease. A long tassel necklace offers contrast and leaves room for shorter, more delicate pieces to polish the look. Go for an eclectic pop with some stackable bracelets. Remember it’s brunch, so more is more—ok, maybe we’re thinking of those mimosas. Try a neutral wedge and printed tote to tie it all together… and don’t forget the sunnies!
STRIPED TO PERFECTION
Sending a shout out to Lemon Stripes on the East Coast for her love of curated style—she makes it look simply delectable! Whether you’re headed to Café Luluc in Brooklyn or Amy Ruth’s in Harlem, you know the food will be good. As will your outfit, if you follow @lemonstripes penchant for, well, stripes! Start with a striped maxi, essentially a blank canvas just waiting to be accessorized. In this case, a breezy scarf strewn around your neck plays to your carefree palette, while a link bracelet and structured crossbody bag keep it classic. You can complete the easygoing vibe with a strappy sandal or slip-on sneaker. The fedora is a cool touch you won’t want to skip!
Go big or go home—that applies to all things Sunday brunch AND your style! Lone Star Southern certainly got the memo. With her use of bold, juicy color and statement accessories, she whips up a look that is optimistically polished and perfect for dining at Pink Magnolia. Her accordion pleat tank, saturated in a poppy hue, gets notice-me points as her champion piece, while crisp white denim grounds the look. A floral bloom necklace and bangle serve up some whimsical flair, as a boyfriend watch lends a “well-timed” masculine touch. Add a hint of elegance with an evening clutch, because yes, it works for daytime too! And those shoes, right on trend and oh-so versatile!
From her home base of Charlotte, NC, Style Your Senses takes the cake with her one-and-done (with some accessories on the side) approach for your easiest weekend attire. She’s a lover of color, patterns and bargains, and it’s no wonder we found her wearing this flowy, printed maxi! The beaded neckline makes it a fabulous stand-alone piece—if you’re in a hurry to make your rezzie at Dandelion Market. But surely there’s time to grab a stack of mixed media bangles on your way out the door. And while the hat is great for sun protection, we can’t deny how unexpectedly chic it is. To elevate the gentle fluidity of this look, pair it with a block heeled sandal. Oh, and let an adorable box clutch bring your brunch style full circle!
This. 100% THIS. @SydneStyle gives the best nod to navy while maintaining the sunniest fashion disposition. Syndne takes a stroll wearing head-to-toe blue in varying shades, with a pair of high-waist jeans to anchor the look. She takes a casual pairing to refined status with this tonal palette and a few sleek accessories. The hint of gold from that bamboo collar necklace is on point. A single bangle is purposefully placed, as is a statement ring for a cohesive finish. The rich blue wedge makes a cheery stamp, and the handbag is perfection. We secretly hope @SydneStyle is heading to Blu Jam Café on Melrose to devour their out-of-this-world Corn Flake French Toast! Wherever your Sunday brunch is, you can easily pull this minimalist look together with similar pieces that suit your mood! These ladies have us feeling so inspired! Remember, weekends are your off-duty time, but Sunday brunch is an occasion—a celebration of food, friends, family and yes—fashion! Charming Charlie has a huge selection of dresses, tops, shoes, bags, scarves and accessories to keep you outfitted for more huevos rancheros than you could possibly eat! Bon appétit & happy shopping!
