And what's not to love about brunch? You get to gather with your favorite people to enjoy the best of breakfast and lunch.
But look around a crowded brunch spot, and you will see women wearing everything from jeans to formal gowns. It's hard to know where to begin when you're deciding what to wear to brunch.
This guide will help you look your best for the next brunch date on your calendar. Read on for the essential tips on how to dress for brunch and a guide to the best brunch dresses you will find.
Tips For Dressing For Brunch
Brunch can feel like a fashion show, and it's the perfect opportunity to show off your personal flair and make a statement. You want to make sure you are feeling confident and comfortable before heading out.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember when you're picking out brunch attire is that you will eat a lot. And sometimes brunch lasts for hours as the mimosas and conversation flow continuously, so comfort is key.
Dresses are a great option for brunch since they won't dig in at the waist like your favorite pair of jeans might after you've finished off your stack of waffles or large omelet.
Brunch is the perfect opportunity to show off some of your most trendy pieces that may have been gathering dust in the back of your closet for the last year. Pick something with a wow factor and it will make the occasion even more special and exciting.
If you are buying something new, you will want to make sure that piece is versatile. The best dresses can be worn for brunch and for an evening cocktail party. We particularly love the black lace cocktail dress for its versatility for multiple functions. At any event, you are sure to turn heads at every step of the way.
And finally, you will want to consider the occasion when you're picking out your outfit. Brunch cooked by your mom in the backyard calls for a different outfit than a birthday brunch with a large group of friends at the latest trendy brunch spot.
Next up: a hand-picked assortment of brunch dresses for any occasion that will be sure to turn heads.
