5 Spring Trends That Were Made For Brunch

If your regular Saturday morning routine involves a bacon, egg, and cheese in bed and slipping into a TV binge, you might want to rethink your definition of brunch. After all, now that spring has finally blessed us with some alfresco dining opportunities (i.e. we can step outdoors without seeing our breath), it's high time to swap your robe and sweatpants for something a little more, well, presentable and venture into the real world. What'd we have in mind, you ask?
To start, the season's new batch of trends we've been eager to debut — like khakis (now without the school-uniform connotation), berets, and cool-but-cozy crushed velvet. To help you master these made-for-spring styles, we teamed with AG to whip up several easy looks that'll have you summoning your friends and requesting an outdoor table in no time. With your outfit quandary solved, the only thing left to navigate is that hefty brunch menu. Lemon ricotta pancakes or eggs florentine? Gets us every time.

Crushed Velvet
We're living for ultra-smooth velvet textures this season. To keep it cool, try the trend via a sleeveless bodysuit tucked into light-wash denim. Top it off with a houndstooth blazer and fresh white slip-ons, and you've got an outfit that's fit for a weekend marathon.

Square-Toe Mules
Last spring, it was all about the open-toe mule — in every color under the sun. Switch it up this year by opting for a closed-toe version in a funky pattern, like checkers. Make 'em pop with white denim, a striped button-up, and an oversized knit in case it gets cold.

This Parisian-inspired hat trend can feel a little costumey if styled incorrectly, so we recommend dressing it down with a denim jumper dress, an easy tee, and lived-in sneakers. The result is super cute without feeling too over the top.

Athletic Stripes
Take the sporty athleisure feel out of this colorblock track jacket by pairing it with trendy two-tone jeans, metallic booties, and a simple tank. This look checks all the boxes: casual, cool, and wearable from morning to night.

This fabric may seem like it's strictly for uniforms and preppy summer getaways, but flip that preconceived notion on its head by styling it with a graphic tee, a fishnet mesh underlayer, and strappy black sandals. Khaki has never been more edgy.
