Lazy Day Luxury

Sunday morning brunch has never looked so good. Ellen Claesson's outfit consists of a patterned button-down shirt and pajama pants— and we couldn’t ask for anything more. The polishedness of her top balances out the relaxed pants to create an ensemble that is out-of-the-house appropriate. Slip into cashmere ballet flats and you’re ready to hit the road.

Geek Chic

Heading to brunch with clients? A structured scarf coat, crisp sweater, clean-cut trousers, and square-toe heels will get the job done. Plus, these styles don’t look overly professional if you meet with friends after. Complete the 'fit with a Birkin-inspired bag for added elegance.

Polished in Pastels

Amsterdam blogger Fia Hamelijnck shows fashion doesn’t have to be serious. ​​Hamelijnck incorporates light layers with a bold fringe jacket and lightly colored wide-leg jeans. She then adds a​ pastel raffia tote to make a fashionable statement without pulling focus. If you wish to bring good vibes to your table, recreate this look of vibrant designs and strong silhouettes.

Boho Fringe

Tamu McPherson knows how to put together an Instagram-worthy brunch outfit. First, she opts for a boho-inspired fringe jacket with relaxed vintage jeans to keep her warm and stylish. The vibrant yellow sweater tied around her neck juxtaposed with the Bottega Veneta green Jodie bag is the color combination we never knew we needed.

5/15

Modish Motivator

Got post-pilates brunch plans? Good, because there are so many activewear brands with offerings that are primed for breaking a sweat and meeting at a restaurant. Style an all-black workout set with a long wool coat and accessories for a look that says you’re motivated and social.

Smart Casual

Want to know what to wear in London for brunch? Parisian style guru Emmanuel Coffee has the tea. Pair a mini dress with a matching blazer for an upgraded monochromatic look. Then, cinch your waist with a chain belt—it gives all the style points you need.

7/15

Slight Chance of Rain

Don’t let the rain get between you and your brunch plans. Make the gloomy day bright and experiment with color combos. Take note from style icon Grece Ghanem and pair a fuzzy turtleneck with contrasting leather gloves, utility pants, and the infamous Bottega Veneta Puddle Boots.

Seasonal Transition Essentials

Grab your transitional jacket for those in-between weather months. Erika Boldrin’s look is a flawless example of an outfit for those days when it's warm after sunrise but chilly mere hours later. Her flannel jacket, black trousers, and shearling-lined sandals cover all the bases. The coat is lightweight, yet its sleeves are wide enough to house a fall sweater. We also love how she intentionally added socks to keep her feet warm and stylish in her fur-lined dad sandals.

Cocoon Dressing

When it comes to a casual brunch, stick to neutral colors and keep your ensemble elegantly cozy. Reach for your favorite loungewear brand and pull out your matching sweater and jogger set. Look to brands like Derek Lam, whose separates include thoughtful details such as a drawstring waist and a cable knit stitching for an extra touch of luxury and dimension. Finally, throw an oversized teddy coat over your shoulders to create a chic monochromatic look.

10/15

Contemporary Canadian Tuxedo

When the weekend calls for brunch with the kids, reach for your denim separates. No matching or color-coordinating is required. All you need is your go-to denim pants and a jean jacket. Don’t be afraid to wear a shearling-lined iteration, such as Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket, for cooler days. Mix them with the right attitude and shoes, and you can’t go wrong.

11/15

Furry Fellow

Turn heads from all corners of the brunch venue with an eye-catching jacket. Pair it with mom jeans, loafers, and a mini tote to store all your daily essentials. This is a faultless ensemble, especially when there are post-brunch errands on your to-do list.

12/15

Tweed Flames

Is there anything more fashionable than wearing a classic tweed set during the day? Valentino's cropped jacket and skirt pairing are modern in their bright orange hue while exuding a Chanel-esque elegance. If you want to stay on the contemporary side, take a page out of Petra Mack’s book and maintain your high profile with Stuart Weitzman’s Ryder Platform sandal and Valentino VLogo Lambskin Leather bag in spring’s hottest color: lemon yellow.

13/15

Sophisticated Savant

Thora Valdimar’s deliciously playful outfit inspires us to inject our closets with a pop of joy. Her lime green pointed-toe heels energize our spirits despite the all-black ensemble. The Balenciaga Le Cogle bag in white gives us something delightfully unexpected. If there’s one lesson here, it's that incorporating a range of silhouettes and colors is key to success.

14/15

Green with Envy

Making summer brunch plans is always a good idea. Whether heading to a local coffee shop or scoring a reservation at that buzzy, vintage-style spot, there’s one thing we're always reaching for: a summer dress. There’s nothing not to love about throwing on an easy one-piece, especially a haltered one with an open back, and heading out the door. To finish, all you need is a mini bag and strappy sandals.

15/15

Poolside Pleasure

Matching your swimsuit to your coverup is the chicest way to enjoy brunch by the pool. Petra Mack’s nonchalance proves that you shouldn’t overthink this type of summer look. Follow her lead by grabbing your designer suit and matching bottoms. Top it off with statement sunglasses.
