Sunday Style: The Weekend Brunch Outfit You Want

You’ve made it through the work week, you’ve powered through a night out with friends and now, you desperately need some brunch. Don’t go dashing — or trudging slowly — out the door wearing just any old ensemble, though. No, our guide to what to wear to weekend brunch emphasizes a nice mix of style, comfort, and versatility. We’re taking a short-sleeve shirt paired with tailored dress shoes and we’re throwing in a few other brands you might recognize — all in the name of making sure you look great at brunch, no matter how late you were out the night before.

Filson Feather Cloth Short-Sleeve Shirt – $68

A tailored, short-sleeve shirt made from premium fabric is one way to stay cool and still look polished — it’ll lend itself nicely to a bit of easygoing, casual style at Sunday brunch, and it looks great when worn under a denim jacket or a lightweight navy blazer (an underrated styling trick, if you ask us).

OLIVERS Passage Pants – $158

Nod toward tailored style with well-fitting pants that move with you, not against you. The Passage Stretch Weave fabric is mobile, breathable and surprisingly versatile thanks to the deep navy color. We like them for spring and summer especially — any time you need to look great when heading to brunch in the heat.

Thursday Boots Statesman Shoes in Cognac Suede – $180

Classic suede dress shoes — worn with a cuffed pair of linen trousers — serve a dual purpose. They offer tailored, sharp style and act like an upgrade over white canvas sneakers. They can also be worn into the office on Monday. Sounds like a perfect Sunday brunch style move to us.

Arvin Goods No-show Socks – $8

For under $10, you’re getting that most essential summer style weapon: A pair of comfortable no-show socks that are going to protect your shoes, your feet, and the sleek style of this look. It’s a European-inspired move to pair a dress shoe with no-show socks and tailored trousers and we think it’ll work just perfectly for your Sunday brunch.

WP Standard Officer’s Leather Belt – $78

The WP Standard Officer’s Leather Belt could be the last leather belt you need — that means you should wear it as much as you can, Sunday brunch included. We love the rich leather and the fact that it contrasts nicely with the deep brown suede.

With understated, sleek-yet-simple style, the Timex Waterbury could soon become an everyday staple in your watch rotation. It’s a downright steal for under $100 and it’ll fit right in with this casual, clean Sunday brunch ensemble.

Randolph Engineering Concorde Sunglasses – $219

Particularly if you’re knocking back a Bloody Mary on a patio somewhere, stylish sunglasses are a must. Classic Aviator sunglasses are also a must, at least according to us — there’s no place you can’t wear them, even to Sunday brunch.

Below, I’ve outlined a few of my favorite tips for coordinating the ideal interview outfit. This isn’t a product round-up per say, but rather a guide to how to think about picking the pieces that are going to be 100% right for you.

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.
