As someone who considers Sunday Brunch to be a sacred meal, dressing for the occasion requires a lot of forethought. A lot of questions pop into my head like: Will I be outside on a patio? Is the restaurant casual or formal? Do I really want to risk getting maple syrup a designer sweater? ... However, you shouldn't overthink it too much. Brunch has always been a breezy affair and thus your outfit should reflect that.
To put all the emphasis on my accessories, I wore a basic white tee, a jean jacket and some black skinny jeans. Like Sunday itself, this look is simple and carefree. I bought this wide-brimmed fedora from Urban Outfitters, a retailer which has quite a variety of on trend hats to suit your style. I think it can be challenging to wear a hat like this, but if you keep the rest of your outfit understated, it won't look like you're trying too hard to pull off the accessory.
I'm not saying brunch tastes any better if you're fashionably dressed, but I will say the experience is more enjoyable. Relaxed, yet still curated, ensembles are perfect for eating eggs benny (as The Daily Cafe likes to so deliciously call it) and coffee. It doesn't hurt to have a fashionable friend, like Max DeYoung, to brunch with either.
