“Show up, dress up, and treat yo’self to bottomless mimosas” — say hello to our new mantra for taking on Sunday brunch like a champ. Not just restricted to preppy spring shift dresses and essential espadrilles, there’s more than one way to brunch on in style. Whether you’re indulging in croissants at a French bakery on the UES or enjoying a nice picnic spread in the park, we’ve got you covered with five foolproof spring #OOTDs to rock. You’re welcome.
1. Urban Sophisticate: Here’s an outfit that seems to say “brunch hard or go home.” Introducing the flouncy red skirt that pairs well with anything/everything, including a playful ringer tee that confirms your weekend availability. Proceed to rack up the compliments with a set of fringe-tastic pink tassel earrings and pom-pom-adorned camel slides that are ready to dance the cha-cha (ya know, just in case). For good measure, throw in the quintessential denim jacket and a half-moon-shaped straw clutch that’s perfect for stowing away just the essentials.

2. Boss Babe: If by brunching, you mean networking with like-minded #girlbosses over Bloody Marys and avocado toast, then you can count us in. While the striped one-shoulder ruffled top establishes a work hard, brunch harder ‘tude, it’s the minimalist gold-plated hand earrings that lend an It-girl edge. Throw in some trend-right slip-on mules, a paint-splattered pouch (probs for stashing away a stack of your calling cards), and distressed blush tone jeans for a slay-worthy look that hits the mark. Any takers?

3. Bohemian Goddess: For impromptu picnics in the park — BYOB (bring your own brunch!) — or al fresco cafe seating, you’re going to want to keep things easy-breezy. Allow this embroidered off-the-shoulder dress to take center stage by teaming it alongside a ceaselessly chic Panama hat and lace-up pom-pom gladiators that would do the festival gods proud. Keep your hands free with a fringey suede cross-body sac and up the wow-factor with some super fly rose-gold mirrored sunnies that demand attention.

4. Girl-on-the-Go: Maybe you’ve just wrapped up a fist-pumping workout or perhaps you’ve got a jam-packed post-brunch itinerary. Either way, comfort reigns supreme for this self-proclaimed busy girl with places to go and people to meet. Enter the perfect wear-everywhere jersey wrap dress that’s made for a brunch buffet followed by a stint downtown. Adidas Superstars, a closet staple you won’t want to be without, and an embroidered “H” (Harvard-bound) baseball cap further solidify your sporty girl persona. Just add funky green frames and a compact leather satchel backpack for around-the-clock appeal.

5. Street-Style MVP: You’re the Leandra Medine or Jenna Lyons of the Sunday brunch club. No such thing as dialing it down when you’re a street MVP in the making, and that’s where this girl-power-infused t-shirt dress comes in. Proceed to take the title of brunch queen with a scene-stealing metallic bomber (check out that vibrant blue faux fur collar) and a conversation-starting millennial pink crossbody bag with major pom swag. You best believe old-school Chuck Taylors and oversized hoops are in order.
