Hey ya! After battling with style options for the Cube Café shoot before finally settling for one, I’ve decided to give a few style tips on what to wear to brunch. If you’re planning a weekend brunch with your girl, friend, significant other or family then here are some quick style options for you.
N/B: You do not necessarily need to have every fashion piece on this post. However, you can work with anything similar in your wardrobe. So do not beat yourself up if you do not have all pieces. Fashion is about innovation so recreate the looks using similar pieces in your wardrobe to create your style. See this as an inspiration and don’t be scared to spice it up a little bit.
Okay now that that’s out of the way, let’s head on to the reason why you’re reading this. I’m sharing with you what Sarah Audu and I wore to brunch at Cube café a while back.
We both decided on a theme which was “Smart Casual”. I decided to go for something dressy and chic because I can be a little sometimes while Sarah went for a simple, classy yet casual look. I wore a wrap dress and a pair of strap mules which I recently got and has become one of my favourites. I went with the wrap dress because it gives this easy breezy vibe and if you know my style you’d know I love free, oversized clothes which suits my ever playful lifestyle. Of course it shows some skin here and there also. This look could also be styled as a date night or a daytime event outfit as well.
Sarah wore a denim wrap top on denim mom jeans with a red beret which served as a pop of colour and a black and white lace up espadrille flats. I’m really getting a hang of the beret trend and I love how she styled it effortlessly. If you’re going for a very chill yet classy outfit then this is definitely n option for you.
- Blazer Dress: This is one trend I’m a total sucker for because it’s really simple yet so stylish and chic and of course we get to showcase a bit of skin. Pair up a blazer dress with a simple belt, a detailed neckpiece and accessories with strap up sandals and you’re good to go. This can also serve as a date night outfit.
- Layered Outfits: One thing people fail to realize is that with over-sized clothing there’s always room for layering. Put on a pair of culottes or palazzo pants, a peplum top or an over-sized top with frills and a pair of flat sandals or strap up heels as seen here. Viola, that’s an outfit option.
- A Little Black Dress: If you’re running out of options on what to wear then just slip into that LBD and you’re good to go. Note this, no one can ever go wrong with a little black dress. Match up that LBD with a pair of nice heels and a clutch or be like me and pair them up with sneakers.
- Neon coloured or Floral Print Dress: This is another great option for a weekend brunch. I mean I really love bright coloured pieces and I’m slow and steady beginning to include them in wardrobe. A nice floral dress or bright coloured dress is a great option for a brunch date.
These are a few style options to choose from when thinking brunch date outfits and I hope they were of help. Which of these outfits best suits your style and which would you go for? I’d also love to know what you think and your own outfit suggestions for a brunch date. Who knows we may just share the same taste. Your feedback is important to me so let me know what you think in the comment section below. Gracias amigos!
