I feel like brunch is not talked about enough for being such an important meal in ones life. It can be boozy, formal, celebratory, or just plain delicious and no matter what, you gotta look good. I don’t know about you but I personally enjoy picking out a good brunch outfit because of the different ways it can be used and here are a few of my favorite ways to dress up for the occasion.
We’ve seen tons of celebrities in RE/DUN jeans lately. I love how the brand has taken vintage pairs and made them look fresh and really well-fitting, so I decided to style my weekend look around a pair.
I wanted to keep the colors of the outfit really light, so I chose this light green blouse from Helmut Lang. I kept the accessories delicate but still wanted them to make an impact with color and shine, so I chose these nude suede Jimmy Choo booties, and this yellow Valentino purse for more color. Lastly, I finished with a bit of sparkle from these Oscar De La Renta earrings and this thin diamond band from Ileana Makri.
Valentine’s Day is a couple of days away and if you haven’t yet got your outfit sorted, we have you covered! Each of us here have put together a look that we love and would wear on the day, featuring two women’s outfits and one men’s look. What are your plans?
Valentine’s Day is one of my favourites as I love any excuse to dress up, but it’s a day that you get to share with your loved one and spend quality time together. So, for my outfit, I chose a pair of black Helmut Lang leather leggings for the base of the look, paired with a simple white shirt and a Target Atlantic Burgundy blazer layered over the top. To keep it classy, I went for the Louboutin Pigalle for heels and a Jimmy Choo nude clutch to brighten it up a little bit. Then for the jewellery, I chose a shark tooth necklace and a feather ring, both in gunmetal, and finally a dark silver chain bracelet. This is definitely something I would wear!
For this year, I wanted to do a look that was casual, clean and something that I would wear myself on the holiday. As I am not big on color, I thought the best way to incorporate red into my look was with the red Stan Smith sneakers by Adidas. They are a smart chic looking pair of shoes that can easily be dressed up and the red is probably my favorite pair.
For the look, I chose a pair of the Citizens of Humanity Avedon in Axel because the deep black pair are ones that I truly love, personally. I then chose a printed shirt by Zanerobe to add a bit of contrast and life to the combination that a solid black shirt couldn’t add. Then to finish the look off, a watch by Tsovet to help you keep track of time. How many of you have plans for the holiday?
For my Valentine’s Day look, I styled an outfit around these Frame Le High Flare jeans. I chose this silk blouse from 3.1 Philip Lim because the draping is very elegant and feminine. Next, I chose these studded Valentino pumps because I always think a pointy toe style looks best peeking out of the flare leg. For accessories, I chose this Lulu Guinnes lips clutch because I love how cheeky it is and perfect for Valentine’s day without being too serious. Lastly, I finished with a bit of traditional red in these Oscar de la Renta earrings.
No matter what trends are in, you can’t go wrong with just a simple white t shirt, great fitting jeans and some high top Chuck Taylors. It’s so classic and simple, yet still something that I really enjoy seeing out. So that is what I went for when styling The Legging Ankle in 11 Years Dreamer from the new Alexa Chung for AG line.
For the t shirt, I wanted something that had a good drape to it and this Rag & Bone one has just that. Then of course for the shoes, a pair of classic black high top Chuck Taylors. You just can’t go wrong pairing those shoes with any look. They literally work with everything. Then to elevate the look a bit, a necklace by Margiela to finish it off. It is a simple piece that adds just enough to the everyday look to make it feel more.
What are your plans for this weekend? How many of you will be sticking with a simple look like this?
