What to Wear: Weekend Brunch

It’s the weekend and some of you are probably going to partake in the ritual that involves going to brunch. Is an outdoor terrace brunch your style? Then you probably want to wear something cool. If you prefer your old school neighborhood diner, then go for a comfortable —  not that there’s a difference been comfortable and sloppy — and casual look. For those of you who are going to a trendy place, you should turn it up a notch, but do so without looking too contrived; contrived = not good, and we can tell when you’ve put  more effort into your outfit than a bride does on her wedding day. So yes, go for a t-shirt, sneakers and even a hoodie, just find that balance between trying too hard and not trying at all. Even though these pieces are meant to be casual, you can risk looking like a slob if you don’t do it right. Now go and enjoy a Bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict; you deserve after a hard week at work!
