Part of the fun of enjoying a meal is dressing for it. The right outfit sets the mood. I think the food just tastes better when I’m dressed appropriately for the occation. My ensemble for a night out with the girls is very different from the one I would wear to a Sunday boozy brunch. Here, I’ll show you how I style myself for all sorts of different meals.
Party brunch in NYC is kind of a big deal. If you’re going to do the whole crazy Meatpacking thing, you need to dress the part. The thing I struggle with is that it’s still daytime. It’s tough to wear club clothes at 1 PM. In the summer, it’s not such a problem. Just throw on a dress some wedges and you’re good to go. In the winter, however, a dress or skirt means tights, and I just can’t bring myself to wear tights in the afternoon on a weekend. I just can’t do it.
My solution: coated jeans. These are basically pants that are cut like denim but in a snazzier fabric. I paired some gray coated babies from Pookie and Sebastian (on sale for $40!) with some gray and black booties from Payless. On top I wore a loose, tan/goldish top from Theory. For accessories I wore a House of Harlow pendant and a tan and black Kate Spade satchel.
