Brunch is always a good idea, but during winter, it can be quite the hassle. I know how difficult finding a perfectly cozy look to enjoy your cappuccino in can be… You always want to look the part while seeming like you didn’t try at all. However, this is typically hard to achieve under a bundle of layers. But seeing how we have more chilly weekends to brave, it’s time to strategize what to wear for the various brunch scenarios that’ll arise. Today, I’m sharing the effortlessly chic winter brunch outfits I swear by – and the ways you can make it your own.

Finding it tough to layer up without feeling like the Michelin man? Take notes from above and stay warm in a menswear-inspired coat. The oversized fit is so forgiving, making it great for layering over anything from turtlenecks to chunky sweaters. This is a look I often throw together when I’m running late and want to look equal parts casual and chic. Above, I’m wearing plaid on plaid, but clashing statement colors and animal prints are fun ways to spice things up.

Parisian Chic

We all know by now that no one nails “effortlessly chic” like the French. So channel your inner Parisian with cropped leather pants and loafers. Leather pants add a cool factor that dresses up any basic sweater. Heighten that French vibe with a baker boy hat and cheeky knit. If you’re wanting more of a sophisticated look, trade the loafer for a pair of classic kitten heel pumps – or lose the knit for an oversized button down.

Casual Cool

If you have to invest in one thing this winter, make it a statement coat. No matter what you wear underneath, such as boyfriend jeans and a chunky knit, you’ll look instantly polished. From fur to fringe styles and everything in between, a textured coat adds tons of interest to your outfit and is so versatile for taking from day to night or office to weekend. (

The Bright Side

You guys know how much I love a monochromatic look, but sometimes, it can be too much to pull off on an early Sunday morning. The outfit above is a toned down variation of the tonal look. I love how it’s still polished without seeming too intentional. The key takeaway here? Level up a basic blazer and trouser combo in a punchy color and accessories to match.

Less is More

It’s not impossible to wear a dress in the winter. All you need to do is opt for a knit fabrication and pair it with knee high boots (ON SALE!) to keep your legs nice and warm. If the slightest sliver of skin is too unbearable, there’s always tights and faux fur accessories to help. Layer on a minimally cut, midi coat for that effortlessly cool vibe – it’ll keep you looking both comfy and elegant.
