This Colorful Brunch Outfit Will Free You From Your Weekend Style Rut

The confused meal that is brunch may be high on your list of hobbies, or something that evokes a dramatic eye roll, but either way, you'll undoubtedly attend at least one this summer. Whether for a farewell brunch at a wedding, a baby shower, or just an impromptu get-together, it's advisable to have a great brunch outfit idea up your sleeve, no matter the circumstances.

Since no one in their right mind goes to brunch without sunglasses, embrace the opportunity to wear vibrant hues and clashing prints. Might as well start the day strong. Reach for a comfortable, swingy skirt in an eye-catching print and build from there. Team the favorable silhouette with an elevated alternative to the ubiquitous tee, like this version from Christian Wijnants. The short-sleeved knit style features joyful tangerine stripes, adding not only a dose of whimsy, but a level of protection against aggressive air conditioning, or should the breeze pick up.

Balance the feminine silhouette with barely-there flat sandals. Opt for a punchy hue, like this russet orange, to keep the party vibe going. Emme Parsons' dainty flat styles are the ultimate find for the sandal connoisseur. Finish with a structured canvas tote in a bright hue that says "I'm low maintenance".

The Shirt

A knitted short-sleeve top with bold, tangerine stripes is a sure-fire way to help you get out of your weekend outfit rut. This option by Christian Wijnants pairs just as well with jeans as it does dressed up with a knee-grazing skirt.

The Skirt

A classic A-line skirt feels fun and unexpected in a bright, hard-to-pin-down pattern. The prospect of wearing this number by LHD will excite you almost as much as the avocado toast you're about to consume.

The Shoes

A slim sandal with just the right amount of heel works its magic to make you feel casual and pulled together at the same time. Try these on by Emme Parsons.

The Bag

A durable canvas bag in a bright color enables you to tote around all the necessities mandated by a full day of errands — which is exactly what you have in store once brunch is over. This one by Barrineau comes in the prettiest blue.
