It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for all week long: brunch. The time to catch up with your crew, eat all the pancakes you can handle, and show off your latest and greatest ‘fits. And today we’re dishing up a serving of cute brunch outfit ideas to add to your weekend wardrobe!

While the word “brunch” has earned a spot in our everyday vocabulary, it wasn’t always that way. The term was first coined by writer Guy Beringer in 1895, who saw this late-morning meal as the perfect cure for a Sunday hangover. He wasn’t wrong — but the breakfast-lunch hybrid has since become so much more, from a weekly gossip sesh with your gals to the perfect spring date idea.

But maybe the most important part of brunch (besides the french toast, of course) is the fashion moments. In addition to bottomless mimosas, most brunches also come with a side of photos for the ‘gram. Keep scrolling for the best brunch outfits that will instantly brighten up your feed, plus some styling ideas to make them stand out!

How do you dress casual for brunch? And should you?

Typically, brunch calls for outfit ideas that blend casual and classy vibes. But since there’s no official brunch dress code, you can go as casual (or as classy) as you’d like!

Here at GWS, we love any excuse to rock our chicest outfit ideas, and brunch is no exception. But the ‘fit you go for will ultimately depend on your personal style, the formality of the restaurant, and who you’re brunching with.

For example, if you’re catching up with your besties at your local diner, you can ditch the heels for something more casual. But if you’re meeting up with the in-laws at a white tablecloth restaurant, you may want to pull out your favorite summer sundress for the occasion. Which brings us to our next point…

Can you wear a long dress to brunch?

Athleisure not your vibe? Good news: long dresses are totally appropriate for your next brunch outing! Not only are maxis super on-trend right now, but they also make for chic outfit ideas if you’re headed to a fancier brunch.

Pair a floor-skimming slip dress with some statement earrings for an ultra classy affair, or keep it low-key by styling a floral maxi with trendy wedges. The options are endless! Just be sure to keep the formality of the restaurant (and your fellow brunch-goers) in mind as you’re picking out your ensemble.

How To Accessorize and Elevate Your Outfit for Brunch

With such low stakes and high fashion potential, brunch is the perfect opportunity to try out new trends and have fun with your outfit ideas — and accessories are no exception!

Spark some joy at the table with a bright bag and a colorful mani, or elevate your brunch outfit with classic ideas like a black pair of boots or a chic blazer.

Weekend mornings are also when you’ll find us reaching for claw clips and headbands. We’ll take sleeping in over curling our hair any Sunday — plus, this is a fashionable way to keep your hair back as you dig into your pancakes!

Aside from your everyday jewelry (gold hoops are a MUST), you can also accessorize your brunch outfit ideas with a sleek pair of sunnies or a boho wide-brim hat. For warmer months, this will have you prepped for hours of chatting and sipping mimosas under the sun!
