After running a survey which found that 29% of people admit to feeling overdressed for brunch, we thought it’d be helpful to put together a guide for men’s brunch outfits.* So whether you’re a steak and eggs kinda guy or fluffy omelettes with crisp toast is more your speed, we’re focusing on one staple item and sharing easy style tips to help you figure out what to wear to brunch. Keep scrolling to learn more.
Add a classic jean jacket
We love a third-piece because of its ability to add polish to a casual outfit. So for this relaxed brunch outfit, we’re sticking to the essentials and letting the denim jacket shine as the star of the show. Underneath, style a cozy crewneck sweatshirt with cuff and hem detailing with slim-fit jeans. Then finish off with richly colored lace-up boots and a matching belt to tie the look together.
Focus on the sneakers
If there’s anything better than a perfectly concocted spicy bloody mary, it’s a fresh new pair of low-top sneakers. Both are must-haves and the best part is that they can be tailored to what you’re in the mood for that day. As for your outfit, if you’re feeling bold, style your shoes with an eye-catching sweater. Prefer something more chill? A neutral colored top it is.
Let the plaid do the talking
Even if you’re pressed for time and can’t sit down for a meal, we’ll show you how to hit up your favorite cafe in style. For a quick coffee date, layer a plaid button-down over a solid T-shirt. Then for an unexpected touch, consider adding a pair of jeans in a unique shade—just be sure to anchor the outfit with a coordinating boot and belt combo.
