For most men, figuring out what to wear can be a task, especially if you’re not into fashion. However, having a lack of interest in being stylish or keeping up with trends is a poor excuse for showing up anywhere either over or underdressed, especially to brunch.
I love going out to brunch. The thought of breakfast and lunch on a menu together and being served at the same time of the day excites me. Brunch is an occasion where many people go out to mingle with friends, meetings with clients, or to go out on a date. Either which way, it’s important to know how to dress for the occasion. What a man wears and how they wear it says a lot about a man. Believe it or not, some people even judge or treat persons according to the way they dress. Therefore, men who are not confident in choosing their wardrobe hire a personal stylist to do it for them.
Today, with “Brunch” being a trend these days, I’m here to help make life a whole lot easier for you in choosing the right outfit for brunch.
Firstly, most restaurants have a website that you can visit. You can scroll through photos to see how others dressed. By doing so, you’ll have a better idea of what to wear. Some restaurants websites also provide you with their preferred dress codes. So, if you take the time out to do your research, you’ll be okay. Other sites such as TripAdvisor also give you an idea of what to wear.
Furthermore, the brunch venue can be set up for either inside or outside dining. If you’re interested in outside dining, I advise you dress according to the weather. In the Bahamas the sun is always blazing. So, if sitting outside overlooking one of our beautiful beaches is what you desire, showing up in a coat suit would be a terrible idea. Try going for something light in fabric; something that is breathable yet stylish.
If you’re meeting up with a colleague or client loafers and casuals are a big NO! NO!
Try sticking to something semi-formal. If you prefer formal then by all mean, do so. However, you can keep things simple with wearing trousers and a plain button-down shirt dressed up with a blazer. A blazer will never let you down.
Brunch with friends this weekend! Well, luckily for you, this won’t require you go in your closet and pull out your best. Depending on the venue, you should be sexy stylish. Some loafers, fit jeans and shirt would be perfect. You can dress it up with suspenders and a fedora. Not interested in the jeans? Skinny trousers with a button-down and the sleeves rolled up would also be perfect.
I thought I’d save the best for last. Brunching for a date? It doesn’t matter if it’s the first, second or third date you should be well dressed. I don’t know about you ladies out there but when I’m out with my significant other, he is a representation of me. I’m always dressed to kill therefore, the same is required.
This is not the time to be spotted in jeans, this is a trousers occasion, button down shirt with the addition of a “bowtie” or “skinny tie”. There should be no loafers or slippers worn and always remember to be properly groomed. A hair cut for men does what a new hairstyle does for women.
