How to dress for brunch

Whether catching up with the family, or bonding with the girls over bottomless Mimosas, few things compare to the joy of kicking off the weekend with a long, lazy brunch. We teamed up with Local Guidesa global community of reviewers on Google Maps, to provide some inspo for the next one — because our fave meal of the day deserves an equally great #ootd and a fabulous venue to match.


What to wear: Statement sweater  + culottes

We all have those days when we want to dress up — but not by wearing a dress. Enter: these pleated culottes. Just throw on a cute conversation sweater (bonus points if you layer it over with a classic white shirt), and Instagram your brunch away.



What to wear: Oversized sweater + anything goes 

This season belongs to cozy knits (we are currently crushing on this tan sweater) paired with anything and everything. Feeling fancy? Add a chain choker.



What to wear: Plaid jacket + denim 

Minimum effort; maximum effect — otherwise known as a plaid jacket.  The only other thing you need is your favorite pair of jeans and you are G2G in 3, 2,1….

Where to wear:

  • If you are in Oakland and are looking for a cozy cafe serving homey comfort food, try Aunt Mary’s Cafe for a Southern and Southwestern twist. Local Guides recommend the chicken and waffles, chicken apple sausage and over-easy eggs.
  • Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill is Austin‘s hot spot for Sunday brunch and is known for serving modern comfort food and cocktails in a historic home.
  • Chicago‘s The Wormhole Coffee has an 80s-themed rustic charm that makes it a can’t miss. Local Guides verdict: “Great local spot for a caffeinated pick-me-up, tasty treats and people watching.”
