Fashion Plates: What To Wear To NYC's Craziest Brunch Spot!

A calm, mimosa-swilling brunch may seem like the perfect weekend activity to nurse Friday's hangover while you and your friends share a few laughs over the previous night's debauchery. But—au contrair!Lavo, a notable celeb-spotting nightclub, hosts a champagne brunch that is anything but sobering. From noon to 6 p.m., you can dine on polenta pancakes, almond-crusted french toast, or an extensive raw bar, while sipping on "remedies" from the cocktail menu. White peach bellinis or hot and spicy Bloody Marys, anyone? And don't be intimidated by what to wear—we've got the perfect ensemble for such a lavish mid-day meal. The only real challenge at this luxe destination will be fighting the urge to dance on tables, rather than eat at them. Sequin Tibi shorts may be more Saturday night than Saturday afternoon, but if we you're going to be popping bottles at brunch, we say you might as well get glam. Balance the flashy bottoms with a white modal tank. Finish the look with coral wedges and Chanel's hottest Summer 2011 shade: Mimosa.
