But what should you wear to brunch? It’s an important question. When getting together with your friends or family, you want to look the part, but don’t have the time for a wardrobe change. You need one outfit that will work for any occasion—from a mimosa-filled brunch to an afternoon trip to the pumpkin patch.
Luckily, it’s easy and versatile to dress for time spent with friends and family. Here are some items that can be mixed and matched to create multiple looks, ensuring that you always look great without sacrificing comfort.
Wear jeans and sneakers.
- Wear jeans and sneakers. It’s hard to go wrong with this classic combo, especially if you’re the type who usually goes more casual. A crisp white sneaker is a safe bet; it matches with most outfits and looks clean no matter how many times you’ve worn them.
- Wear jeans and a T-shirt. With this look, pay attention to your accessories—a fedora or bold sunglasses can be enough of a statement piece to pull everything together without being too over the top for brunch.
- Wear jeans and a blazer. It’s all about finding that balance between business casual and ready for the weekend (because really, brunch is both). Go for heels here; they’ll give you a boost in confidence so that when you walk in, everyone notices your effortless coolness.
- Wear jeans and a sweater. This is perfect for those days when you want something easy but still want to look put together—and it’s definitely one of my favorite fall looks! To keep things from getting too bulky, stick with skinny jeans or tuck your sweater in if it has lots of volume.
Don’t be afraid to break out your favorite athleisure wear.
The intuitive and easy-to-style nature of athleisure wear makes it a natural choice for brunch. There are no zippers, no buttons, and you can easily dress your look up or down. If the weather’s warm enough, you might even consider wearing a crop top with your leggings or yoga pants. Swap out the sneakers for some strappy sandals to amp up your look even more! The possibilities are endless!
Regardless of what style of athleisure wear you choose for brunch, this trend is here to stay. So why not give it a try? You’ll be more comfortable without sacrificing style at all. And if that doesn’t convince you, know that when lunch time rolls around you can head straight from brunch to the gym in your funky new outfit.
Wear a sun dress with tights and booties.
To finish off your look, grab a pair of boots that you’re comfortable in and would like to show off. Heeled or flat is totally up to you, just choose whatever style you feel best suits your outfit, and will keep you the most comfortable throughout the day!
Dress up your favorite jeans with a fun top.
Wearing a plain white tee, blouse or tank top with jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style. Who can forget “The Rachel” (a hairstyle from the 90s tv show Friends)? To add some extra flair to your outfit, layer on a jacket, cardigan or sweater over top. A denim jacket or chambray blouse look great with white pants and looks great if you’re looking for something more casual. And don’t forget the accessories! It’s easy to dress up your favorite jeans by adding jewelry, scarves and belts to complete your look.
Pair a fun top with jeans and heels.
If you’re the type of person who feels comfortable in jeans and a top, it’s an easy way to dress up your brunch outfit. Choose a pair of jeans that fit well, such as the ones from Frame Denim, then pair them with a fun top like this ruffled blouse. Add some heels, jewelry, and a jacket if it’s cold out.
Grab your favorite sweater for a cold weather brunch look.
When the weather isn’t too hot or too cold, brunch is an appealing meal. Who doesn’t love sleeping in, waking up to the smell of coffee and pancakes cooking, then enjoying the morning with friends? Sometimes it’s easy to forget that this leisurely meal is even a thing when the temperature drops (or rises) significantly. Brunch then becomes something of a “Special Occasions Only” event, relegated to birthdays and anniversaries.
But don’t be afraid of brunch in colder weather! In fact, it can be even more fun than its summertime counterpart, when all you have to wear are sundresses and sandals. With a few key pieces like boots and a jacket, you can turn your favorite jeans-and-sweater combo into something worthy of your best #OOTD post.
Start off with your favorite sweater; add some color with a scarf or statement jewelry—or both! Add some texture with suede ankle boots or maybe metallic ballet flats (depending on how much snow you have on the ground). To keep warm without looking too bulky, find yourself a nice wool fedora to top off the look—a hat will also give you instant street cred as a style icon if that’s something you’re into. Finally, go for one last pop of color with an army green parka or leather bomber jacket. Your outfit is complete and winter brunch has never been so stylish!
Pair a sweater dress with tights and booties.
Dress up your favorite sweater with a pair of opaque tights and a pair of booties or heels. This look is perfect for brunch, lunch or even dinner!
A sweater dress paired with a belt and tights is an excellent way to make any outfit work appropriate. Add a long cardigan to keep warm on chilly days.
Tuck a simple blouse into a skirt and add some heels and jewelry.
You don’t have to be a fashionista to look and feel good leaving your house. You are not obligated to wear the same outfit you wore yesterday.

Pick up some cute midi skirt and wear it with one of your favorite sweaters, boots, or simply add a statement necklace to complete your look!
Midi skirts are going to be one of the biggest trends this year, so consider buying some if you don’t already own a few. We love how they look when paired with a sweater and boots, but you can also add a belt or statement necklace to complete the look. A midi skirt is also a good option if you want to show off your legs without them being too short.
You can also use it as an opportunity to experiment with different looks by incorporating new accessories or color combinations.
You can also use it as an opportunity to experiment with different looks by incorporating new accessories or color combinations. Accessories are a great way to add interest to an outfit, whether it’s a scarf or belt in a bright color, or some statement jewelry that you wouldn’t normally wear. If you’re wearing all black, adding a pop of color with red shoes or red lipstick can help break up the monotony and add some visual interest.
