What to Wear to A Feminine Winter Brunch

Attending or hosting a winter brunch is a wonderful way to spend time with friends, especially during the holidays.

Whether you’re hosting the party or attending as a guest, the two most important decisions are what to wear and what to make for your winter brunch. In today’s post, I’m sharing my favorite feminine details for your winter brunch outfit, along with two incredibly simple, yet picture-perfect, take-along recipes.

Choosing the Perfect Outfit for your Winter Brunch

Winter brunch with your girlfriends is a wonderful opportunity to play up feminine fabrics and detailing, and there’s certainly no shortage of that this time of year. Try incorporating the following into your look for delicate and ladylike touches.

Lace

Lace is perfect for feminine outings, especially in soft shades like beige and blush. My peplum lace top is available in petite, tall and regular sizing. I usually prefer petite, but when I tried this on in the store, the regular sizing in a 00P fit just fine.

Velvet

Velvet is a festive fabric for the holiday season, and can be found at many price points this time of year. The soft mauve color of Zoë’s crushed velvet dress is absolute perfection when paired with sheer black tights and suede black pumps.

Ruffles

Along with bell sleeves, ruffle sleeves and detailing on sweaters can be found in abundance this season. These pretty layers are a flirty, fun addition to your holiday outfit, especially when the other pieces are relatively simple.

I love the way Kim has paired hers with a pleated black mini skirt, both in neutral colors, for a perfectly girly look.

Sparkle & Bows

Statement jewelry and hair accessories are the final touches to your feminine looks. I fell in love with this statement necklace with its velvet backing and neutral stones, and I loved the way Zoë added a beautiful detail to her long hair by tying in a velvety bow.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
