What to Wear to Brunch

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. 
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. After all, you’ll likely be on the train by 10am which might feel like a strange time of day to be dressed up! 

But we say, go for it! 

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, both inside and out, to help you feel and look fantastic.

We will also take a look at the must have accessories to finish the outfit off a treat.

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!

On warmer days, try the ruched crop top with your high waisted jeans. This is comfortable and cool in the spring and summer months.

Team your outdoors brunch outfit with a pair of cat eye sunglasses. These are perfect to finish off your look all while protecting your eyes from the sun.

Cocktails and bottomless brunch - Outside

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.

On those warm days clip your hair back using a rectangle hair clip for a relaxed but classy style.

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.

We love the Weave Knot bag for a casual lunch with the girls. This statement bag has enough space for everything you could need for going to town and into the night.

Cocktails and bottomless brunch - Inside

Finally! We are brunching inside! We have the perfect brunch/girls night out outfit for you. This shirt dress has a super flattering neckline and a front tie detail to create a beautiful shape. It feels and looks amazing.

Pair a shirt dress with some barely there heels, a clutch and our chunky but elegant triple hoop, gold earrings. You will be turning heads while you sip on your Pornstar Martinis.

Get more out of your brunch outfit with our co-ords

At The Nuevo Edit we are all about timeless fashion and finding ways to get more out of an outfit. We think that by having one co ord set  in your wardrobe you’ll be able to create endless outfits by pairing each part of the co-ord with different items.

Try the satin shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans and heels, or the satin trousers with a nice simple top and heels. Get creative and see just how many outfits you can make from one purchase. 

This will give you more options for what to wear to brunch, whether it is a casual brunch with the girls or a boozy afternoon spilling into the evening and beyond. 

Can you wear jeans to brunch? 

Most brunch spots don’t have a ‘no denim policy’, but some might, so always check the website. Personally, we think that jeans look fantastic for a brunch outfit. Whether you are teaming up high waisted jeans with a summery top for a warm day, or a pair of flares with a warm knit in winter, we think denim is both classic and stylish. 

If the website doesn’t say much about it’s dress code, check out their social media accounts for ideas of what to wear to brunch and whether jeans are a go. 

Where do we like to go for brunch?
