Brunch, much like in Sex and the City, is an old friendship tradition. But sometimes you can simply just run out of things to wear. After all, it is at such a weird time of the day, and because it’s a tradition it happens all year round. Thankfully there are a few tips that can help you avoid wearing the same outfit to two brunches in a row. Now, remember fashion tips are just that tips. You should always add your own touch to it.

Although you are going out to eat, brunch is really a casual event. This means that you don’t have to get dressed in a glamorous outfit. But with that said, it doesn’t mean you should pitch up in your pjs. So what exactly can you where? Well, it totally depends on where you are going and what time of the year it is. We all know that summer means wearing cute summer dresses. Winter on the other hand means layers.

If you are going for brunch in the summertime, you could get away with wearing jeans. Yes, jeans. But not just any jeans. Something form-fitting or even a good pair of clean mom jeans. The point is what you pair with it makes all the difference. For footwear, it is always safe to go with a cute neutral-colored block heel. This way you are comfortable and cute. Now seeing that it’s summertime, you can wear bright loud colors or keep it neutral. So when it comes to shirts you have a variety of options.

Now dressing in winter is always tricky. You never know if you are wearing too much or simply look overdressed for an occasion. Well, a good pair of boots goes a long way. When dressing up for a winter brunch start from the bottom and work your way up, making your boots the star. Another important winter brunch tip would be a coat. Trench coats have never and will probably never go out of style.
