What to Wear to Brunch


There’s nothing quite like getting dressed up ready for a brunch date with the girls. Whether you are going bottomless and boozy, or just to a casual spot, it’s always good to think about what to wear.

More than ever, we are ready to get out of the clothes we’ve lived our lockdown life in and into something brand new.

But what to wear to brunch in 2021?

Bottomless brunches can be a little confusing when it comes to outfits. Brunches usually start in the mid morning to afternoon, so you might be wondering whether to keep it casual or go all out.  

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to brunch outfits. However, what you wear will be determined by the type of place you are going to, whether you have a table inside or outside and of course, the season.

We’re going to take you through some outfit combinations for casual brunches and bottomless brunches, for both inside and outside, to help you feel and look fantastic.

What to wear to brunch outside

The Casual Brunch - Outside

For outside, casual brunches, we love a classic jumper and jeans look. Try our white sweetheart neckline jumper tucked into high waisted jeans and a light jacket. The bell style sleeves of this knit will keep you warm in the colder seasons as well as make you stand out!

These types of boozy brunches can easily spill into the evening.  You will want to make sure you have a layer to finish off your outfit so you are ready to go to the next outside spot, particularly in the colder months. After all, you never know where your evening might end up!

The absolute go to here has to be our sage satin co-ord with a blazer draped over your shoulders. The satin fabric will keep you cool in the sun, and warm as you go into the evening.

It is going to look super chic and have an air of elegance.

What to wear to brunch inside

The casual brunch - Inside

Just going for a coffee and Sunday brunch with your girlfriends? You probably won’t want to wear the whole satin co-ord for a casual brunch spot, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a part of it. Try teaming the sage satin shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans. This tie at the waist creates an amazing silhouette and bridges the gap between smart and casual.

Jeans, heels and a nice top is always a winner for a casual brunch. Shop for neutral pallets and outfits that you can easily see yourself being able to dress down and dress up.
