It’s Saturday morning at 11am and you’re heading to your local cafe to get brunch with friends. Do you a.) wear the same T-shirt you slept in b.) slip into your workout gear to give the false impression you have your life together or c.) put on an actual polished oufit and turn heads? According to Karl Lagerfeld, the answer should always be c). The set of his Fall 2015 collection for Chanel was a Parisian brasserie, and the girls wore all manner of inspiring, brunch-appropriate ensembles. Here, tips for making a sartorial statement this weekend.

1. Don a statement jacket
Trade in your denim jacket for a high-impact bomber. Extra points for pairing it with daytime sequins.
2. Dress up your denim
Jeans are allowed, just make sure to pair them with luxe fabrics and flashy accessories like velvet and a chain belt.
3. Tame your bedhead
Spritz dry shampoo at the roots and then tease hair into a messy chignon. Finish with a black headband.
5. Don't overlook eveningwear
Just because it looks great in a ballroom doesn't mean it can't be worn with a grandpa sweater for brunch. #versatility
6. Style yourself creatively
Breathe new life into a sweater dress by layering it under a printed, knee-length skirt.
7. Stack your bracelets
All the better for getting the waiter's attention.
8. Mix textures
A jacquard midi-skirt looks gorgeous with a nubby tweed cardigan.
