Lazy Brunch Outfits That Still Look Put-Together

It's Sunday afternoon. You wake up, check your phone, and realize there's a group text happening that says brunch is on the books — and in less than 30 minutes. Your eggs Benedict craving has kicked in, and you're more preoccupied with getting some food in your stomach than with getting dressed.

We've all had those run-out-the-door-with-hair-and-makeup-from-the-night-before moments. But it actually takes just as much (or rather, little) effort to slip into a pair of culottes, boyfriend jeans, or skinnies as it does to toss on sweatpants. With the right pairings, you'll be getting compliments on your look left and right — and no one will know it took approximately 60 seconds to throw it together.

So the next time mimosas and flapjacks rank higher than outfit-assemblage on your priority list, look to these five lazy weekend looks that will get you out of the house without trying too hard.

There's no need to wear anything skintight to a bottomless brunch. A pair of flowy, wide-legged pants and a cozy sweater are the closest you'll get to pajamas while still looking like you dressed yourself. To finish things off, reach for your go-to black accessories, like low-to-the-ground flats and sunglasses (to conceal those under-eye bags in style).

You've had eggs Benedict on the mind since you first stumbled out of bed. Stave off the hangry 'tude with a quick, no-fuss look comprised of easy pieces like a striped mock-neck tee and cutoff shorts. Wrap a blush sweater around your waist and strap into sandals that don't compete too much with the grommet trim on your bottoms, and you're ready to go.

A graphic sweatshirt is an easy and comfortable focal point for a cozy outfit. This one reads "In Fries We Trust" — obviously the perfect slogan for brunching. Pair it with some loose-fitting culottes, some wedges for height, and a hat that means a bad hair day doesn't stand a chance.
