Brunch might just be everyone’s favorite meal—all parties are satisfied with both breakfast and lunch options, there’s a restaurant for every type of dish you’re craving, and it takes place right in the middle of the day when there’s no rush to be anywhere in a hurry. Like the versatility of the meal itself, there are endless ways to style a brunch outfit. Whether you’re heading out for bottomless mimosas and shareables with your friends, or catching up with the family over coffee and diner-style plates—or any occasion in between—we’ve curated eight flawless looks fit for every brunch outing on your calendar.

If you’re headed to a brunch date, opt for an easy-to-move-in dress and some comfortable shoes.

Whether you’re heading to brunch for a first date or for a weekly outing with your partner, this charming outfit is a romantic pick for any mid-morning meet-up. The Emerson Poplin Puff Sleeve Mini Dress from Abercrombie & Fitch serves as the statement piece for this brunch look. With its ruched bodice, billowing sleeves, and ethereal pattern, the feminine dress is just a step above casual without being too dressy for the occasion. Shop the look in women’s sizes XXS through XXL in petite, regular, and tall lengths.

Flats are back in style, and the tan light Jacki Flats from Nordstrom are a darling pair to the Abercrombie dress. Available in women’s whole and half shoe sizes 4 through 13, the classic penny loafer-style shoes are understated while also adding a touch of femininity through their sleek silhouette. Finish the look with the gold chain link Ettika Freshwater Pearl Pendant Necklace—another timelessly elegant piece.

For a protein-filled plate after a morning fitness class

For post-group-workout brunches, throw a sweatshirt on over your favorite jumpsuit.

In your fitness girlie era? We’re raising a pitcher of mimosas to you! If you’re craving a little “treat yourself” moment after an early morning exercise class, don’t worry about looking like a disheveled, sweaty mess at brunch—this outfit will have you looking fashionable during both your workout and your meal.

Start with the Beyond Yoga Spacedye Daring Jumpsuit from Revolve, shoppable in women’s sizes XS through XL. The curve-hugging jumpsuit features a flattering V neckline, pretty crisscross detailing at the back, and high-waisted stitching that elongates the legs. Pair the stylish, multi-tone APL Techloom Bliss Sneakers with the sporty chic one-piece—a gorgeous and functional combo for any fitness class.

After you’re done with your morning sweat sesh, throw on the black YPB Neoknit Legging-Friendly Crew from Abercrombie & Fitch, available in women’s sizes XXS through XXL. If it’s too warm to wear the crewneck, tie the arms around your shoulders for an East Coast prep vibe. Worried about your hair? Either slick it back in a middle-parted low bun or toss the Nike Club Cap overtop your tresses—no one needs to know about the sweaty strands that lurk beneath. Lastly, finish the tonal look with the black Beis Sportpack to stow away your keys, wallet, and other essentials.

For a mimosa meet-up with the girls

You need to bring your A-game when it’s time to have brunch with the girlies.

There’s nothing like bottomless mimosas and catching up with the girls over shared plates at your favorite brunch spot—it’s a special kind of weekend happiness. Show up in style (and ready for that inevitable Instagram photo) with a chic and playful outfit that will have your friends acting like your personal hype women.

This occasion requires a great pair of jeans that will hug your curves in all the right places while offering a relaxed fit and a modern silhouette—Reformation’s Cary High Rise Slouchy Wide Leg Cropped Jeans are a divine pick. Available in women’s sizes 23 through 31, the medium wash Colorado colorway is truly a work of art. Pair the trendy denim with the Gellar Knit Top, also from Reformation. The cropped, ribbed sweater shirt offers a cheeky peek of skin down the mid-line of the torso between the elongated button loops, which is a sexy moment the girls will appreciate. We’re quite partial to the fern colorway—shop the look in women’s sizes XS through XL.

While these two basic pieces are stunning on their own, a few well-picked accessories have the power to pack a posh punch. For shoes, opt for the Vince Camuto Hamden Pump. Shoppable in women’s whole and half sizes 5.5 through 11, the chunky heeled slingbacks in the cognac colorway match the sophisticated city girl vibe of the look. Pair the cognac-colored Kelly & Katie Dani Mini Shoulder Bag with the outfit, and add the Ettika Crystal Disc Collar Necklace and the Khkindpro Chunky Gold Earrings as the finishing touches.

For a rough morning after a night out

Sometimes brunch is more of a chore than a gift, and for those days, take the easy way out.

Nothing cures a hangover like a greasy diner breakfast, but we all know how unlikely the odds are that you’ll make it out of bed before the morning meal hours end. Hence: a post-night-out brunch. While you may feel like a wet napkin on the inside, you can still look relatively put-together with this comfortable but cute outfit.

Opt for a matching set moment which will automatically have you looking composed. Pair Aerie’s slouchy Quarter Snap Sweatshirt with the brand’s relaxed, ribbed Gotta Jet! High Waisted Skater Pants, both in the royal palm colorway, available in women’s sizes XXS through XXL. Up the ante on the coziness of it all with the Birkenstock Boston Genuine Shearling Clog from Nordstrom, shoppable in women’s whole and half shoe sizes 5 through 10.5.

If your hair is giving rat’s nest, wrangle it into a low messy bun and put on the cheeky Smiley Baseball Hat from Aerie. Lastly, if the sun is simply shining too hard for your recovering eyeballs, chuck on a pair of Aerie’s olive-tinted, vintage-style Throw-Back Sunglasses. You may be hungover, but you’ll look like the poster girl for stylish loungewear in this adorable outfit.

For a family-friendly meal

A sophisticated sweater dress is just the polished look you’ll need for brunch with the fam.

Meeting the fam for a mid-morning meal? Channel a little extra sophistication in an attempt to thwart mom’s well-meaning but overwhelming questions while you simultaneously maintain the grandparents’ idyllic impression of your life being totally, undoubtedly put together.

Keep your outfit simple but classy—just like your responses to the familial rapid-fire round of 20 questions—with the Landa Merino Sweater Dress from Banana Republic. The hunter green colorway is really speaking to us as fall approaches, and the mock neck, bishop sleeves, and ribbed material are so stylishly cozy for the season. Shop the look in women’s sizes XXS through XXL.

Embrace those fall vibes even more with the Torgeis Elenora Boot from DSW. The knee-length boots feature a chunky heel and an eye-catching gold chain detailing at the ankle. We’re a fan of the cognac colorway for this look, which is available in women’s whole and half shoe sizes 6 through 11. For accessories, Anthropologie’s tan Patent North South Bag and Tiered Drop Earrings play gorgeously off one another thanks to their similar resin elements—which also work well with the cognac-colored boots.

For a little morning fuel before a day of errands

A versatile and comfortable outfit is key when brunch is just stop #1 of a long day.

If you’ve got a day of running around ahead of you—farmers’ market, dropping off your recycling, stopping at the dry cleaner, grocery shopping, and so on—you likely want an outfit that’s both functional and stylish. Behold: the very cute and comfortable Rib Scoop Neck Wide Leg Jumpsuit from ASOS. The oatmeal-colored, jersey knit one-piece gives laid-back style and cozy vibes—shop the look in women’s sizes 0 through 14.

It’s fall, so obviously this look is begging for a flannel. Snag the Heavyweight Flannel Shirt Jacket in the brown plaid colorway from Abercrombie. It’s a menswear piece, but don’t let that deter you—the oversized boyfriend fit will contrast well with the figure-hugging silhouette of the jumpsuit. Shop the look in men’s sizes XS through XXL in regular and tall lengths.

For shoes, we love the Puma Cali Dream Ivy League Sneakers in the white and purple colorway, available in women’s whole and half shoe sizes 5.5 through 11. The purple leans more wine-toned than grape soda, which will look stunning with the beige and brown tones in the jumpsuit and flannel. Finish the look by strapping on ASOS’ black Curve Quilted Chain Detail Fanny Pack and adding the brand’s Reclaimed Vintage Inspired Constellation Star Multirow Necklace for a little glitz.

For a bougie breakfast

Pull out all the stops for an unforgettable fancy brunch.

We all love a greasy, no-frills diner brunch—but sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little more fancy. If you plan to hit a bougie brunch spot with gourmet plates, craft cocktails, and a luxe aesthetic, this upscale look is fitting for the occasion.

Start with the posh Pilcro Strapless Polished Wide-Leg Denim Jumpsuit from Anthropologie, which features a fit-and-flare silhouette with a strapless neckline and wide legs. The denim number also elongates the legs through its high-waisted stitching and 1970s-style front-facing pockets. Shop the look in women’s sizes 00 through 16 in standard, petite, and plus fits.

Add to the cool girl vibes with the Bishop + Young Tweed Moto Jacket, available in women’s sizes XXS through XL. The edgy cropped jacket features a stunning camel and ivory houndstooth pattern, which would look delicious with the cognac-colored Vince Camuto Inerta Platform Pump. Combining platform, loafer, mule, and slingback characteristics in one shoe, the heels are classic with plenty of modern twist—shop the style in women’s whole and half shoe sizes 5.5 through 11.

Keep your accessories minimal but cohesive with the Milan Chiva Cloud Pouch Bag in the a-chiva beige colorway and the Goldchic Jewelry Chunky Gold Chain Necklace, both available at Amazon.

For a boozy brunch with your Gen-Z sister

Why is Gen-Z always so unnecessarily judgmental? Avoid the embarrassment with this youth-approved fit.

The Gen-Z girlies are all just effortlessly cool, and if you happen to be a Millennial with a Gen-Z little sister, you’ve likely been roasted for your tried-and-true going-out shirt and jeans combo—not to mention your skinny jean collection, which is most definitely cringy, according to the youths. If you’re tired of being dragged by your younger sister, consider donning this Gen-Z-approved outfit during your next boozy brunch date.

Cargo pants are all the rage with the cool kids these days—they’re basking in the Y2K fashion fads they missed while they were literal toddlers—so the Tan Low Rise Puddle Pants from PacSun are an A+ starting point for this look. They may be low-rise, but the slouchy, relaxed fit won’t give you the dreaded muffin top effect. Shop the look in women’s sizes XS through L, then head over to the Gen-Z girlies’ favorite place to shop: Princess Polly.

Keep it trendy and casual with the black Blanco Top, available in women’s sizes XS through XL. The cropped, ribbed, half-zip top expertly compliments the laid-back vibe of the pants, and it’s basic enough that you’ll be able to incorporate it with other items in your wardrobe. Embracing the trendiness of it all again, cop a pair of chunky dad sneakers—we like the Steve Madden Possession Sneaker in the white/black/tan colorway for this look, which you can shop in women’s whole and half sizes 5 through 11. Lastly, accessorize with a 2000s-style shoulder bag—the Peta & Jain True Black Bag—and the gold angel number Fenway Necklace (the Gen-Z girls love angel numbers), both from Princess Polly.
