It’s not always easy to look and feel stylish during summer in the city. The humidity alone can put good hair days on hold until October rolls around. Still, life in the Big Apple must go on – and that includes weekend brunches. By choosing looser cuts and lightweight fabrics, no weather forecast will be enough to put a damper on your fashion game. Here are some ideas for what to wear to brunch this summer in NYC.
Summertime is synonymous with maxis. When paired with some nice wedges, maxi dress is formal enough for brunch at The Mark, yet looks just as chic with flip flops for a more casual outing. A breezy maxi skirt is another option – just add a tank top and you’re good to go.
Summer brunches in NYC are the ultimate time to relax and unwind. Stay comfortable with flashy workout leggings made with moisture-wicking, breathable fabrics, or a roomy romper that transitions easily from your yoga class to the restaurant.
Treat your feet to some vitamin D with a pair of wrap-around sandals. And if you didn’t have time to get a pedicure, a pair of summery sneakers look adorable with just about anything, from cropped trousers to sundresses.
White bottoms can be worn year-round, but they look especially crisp and stylish during the summer. When the days are extra balmy, stick to fabrics like linen and jersey cotton (wearing denim in the heat isn’t always the best idea). Embrace the season even more with a pair of white sailor pants – perfect for summer brunches in NYC.
Tap into your inner bohemian with a billowy top. Whether you choose long sleeve or a strappy tank, these airy cuts will keep you cool, even if you’re brunching al fresco. They’re also incredibly forgiving, just in case you overdo it with the fried chicken and waffles. (It’s okay, we’ve all been there.)
No matter what you wear during your summer brunches in NYC, top off your outfit with a slick pair of sunglasses. Aviators from Ray-Ban are always a classic, or perhaps some translucent frames in sorbet colors are more your speed. Either way, grab some shades and enjoy your weekend.
