I do not care how basic the world says it is, brunch is lit. It's the perfect meal! When you aren't in the mood for a full breakfast but lunch if too far away brunch sweeps in like the hero that we didn't know we needed. Alongside the delicious food and amazing company, brunch attire is one of the top reasons why I adore this meal. In the warmer months, a summer dress and sun hat is the basic go to outfit (duh); however, during the cooler seasons, warmth becomes quite important. I take this as nothing but a challenge to find creative ways to show a little skin at brunch.
One of the best ways I've found to bring a little sexiness to a cold season look is by using pieces with fun cut-outs. These pieces will allow you to show some skillfully selected skin while protecting you from the cool weather. This tunic from Toni+ pretty much leaped off the hanger at me! As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect addition to a casual brunch look. Paired with light wash leggings (I got these from Asos and I suggest sizing down as these do stretch!) and oversized tote, this casual look is warm enough for fall while still being chic.
