Start With the Basics! Casual Brunch Outfits

If you’re at a loss of where to start for your brunch outfit, you can always turn to the wardrobe basics. These items are the best because they’re easy to mix and match with other pieces to create a cohesive look! 

You can always rely on a great pair of jeans, a fitted white t-shirt, and white sneakers as foundational pieces. You can create casual brunch outfits with just the basics. Or mix them with your statement pieces, such as a cool leather jacket, interesting tops or brightly colored skirt, and you instantly have a solid look.

And, of course, no outfits are complete without the perfect accessories! A statement necklace, pair of earrings, or eye-catching watch can take your outfits to the next level.

1. White T-Shirt

A white t-shirt is an ultimate chameleon in your wardrobe. If you don’t have a favorite t-shirt, get one! This versatile top can easily be worn casually with a pair of great-fitting denim jeans or elevated with skirts or slacks. If you’re looking to dress things up, consider adding a chic jacket or cardigan to your look!

Spring Brunch Outfits

When choosing the perfect brunch outfits for spring, there are a few key elements to keep in mind. First, you’ll want to choose something comfortable yet stylish —after all, you’ll likely spend a good amount of time sitting, eating and drinking in your brunch spot.

And second, since the weather can be unpredictable this time of year, it’s always a good idea to have a light jacket or cardigan on hand in case it gets chilly.

With those two things in mind, here are some stylish and seasonally appropriate looks to wear to brunch this spring.

4. Dresses

If you’re looking for the perfect brunch outfit, why not keep it simple with a beautiful dress? Dresses are one of the most effortless outfits to wear because you don’t have to worry too much about finding the perfect bottoms to go with them.

Simply throw on your dress, some beautiful jewelry, some shoes, and voila! Easy, quick, and you’re ready to go!

Summer Brunch Outfits

When putting together your perfect summer brunch outfits, choosing something that will keep you cool in the heat is the most important thing. If you want to wear something a little more casual, try a pair of shorts or a sundress.

No matter what you choose to wear, make sure you accessorize with some summer staples like sunglasses or a stylish oversized straw hat.

7. Rompers

Rompers are the perfect easy outfits to wear to a casual summertime brunch with your girlfriends! They’re a great alternative to dresses if you don’t want to worry about your mini dress blowing up.

Fall and Winter Brunch Outfits

Brunch is not reserved for warmer weather! Get some ideas for fall and winter brunch outfits.

While the warm weather might have had you reaching for sun dresses and skirts, fall and winter call for a slightly more covered-up look. You can still look elegant and put together while bundling up for cooler weather.

11. Cashmere Sweater and Slacks

Cashmere sweaters are perfect for staying warm in the cooler months without sacrificing style! Choose a sweater with a nice silhouette, so you don’t lose your natural shape when layering it with your outerwear. Pair it with your white sneakers for a comfy casual look or with heeled boots.

You can also wear your favorite sweaters over midi or maxi dresses in the fall for more inspired outfits. My favorite trick: wear a sports bra over your dress. Then put your sweater over the sports bra, and tuck the front of your sweater up into the bottom of the sports bra. 

The casual tuck keeps the sweater from looking too frumpy over your dress, giving you a bit of shape while still being cozy and looking in style.
