At the time of writing this, I just got back to my hotel from brunching in Chicago and I was so inspired by my people-watching that I took mental notes on all the stylish outfits. Breakfast is usually thought of as a casual affair, but brunch is the perfect excuse to dress up and create a chic look. Whether you’re sipping on a pumpkin spice latte or indulging in bottomless mimosas, the perfect brunch outfit should have you feeling confident and ready to snap a pic with your family or best friend (after you grab a pic of your foamy cappuccino, of course). In need of some brunch outfit ideas? I’ve got 18 chic fall brunch outfits that you’ll want to try out this weekend, so feeling like you won’t have anything to wear won’t be a problem. The real problem? Picking just one!
1. sweater dress + knee-high boots + hoop earrings
One of my favorites, a sweater dress is a great way to stay cozy and chic during the fall season. It effortlessly combines style and comfort, so what’s not to love? The ideal dress skims the body – not too loose-fitting causing you to lose your shape, but not too clingy either.
Pair the sweater dress with knee-high boots for an added touch of sophistication. The boots will not only keep your feet warm but also elongate your legs, creating a sleek and stylish look.
Complete the outfit with hoop earrings for a touch of glamour. The hoops add an eye-catching element to the overall look. Opt for oversized hoops in gold or silver, whichever suits your skin tone best, for a statement-making accessory!
2. jacket + leggings + tote bag + baseball cap + loafers
Where are my sporty girls? If your personal style leans more casual than chic, then this is the outfit idea to try. Start with a lightweight jacket in a versatile color like olive green or navy blue. A quilted detail adds a little something and elevates this basic. Layer it over a basic tee or a cozy sweater, depending on the weather.
Pair the jacket with leggings if you want a comfortable option. Fitted leggings are an upgrade from sweats, especially when chosen in black because they create a sleek and streamlined look. (Plus, you can indulge in all the great food at brunch without feeling restricted!)
Complete the outfit with a tote bag to carry all your essentials. Tote bags are not only practical but also a stylish accessory for a brunch outing. Look for a simple, sleek tote bag to keep the outfit from looking too casual.
Lastly, slip on some loafers. This elevates the leggings outfit and keeps it from looking too casual. (Just double-check the dress code of your brunch place to make sure leggings would be a good fit.)
3. basic tee + high-waisted pants + ankle boots
When it comes to chic yet casual wear for fall brunches, dressing up a basic tee is a go-to choice. Start with a basic tee in a neutral color like white or black and pair it with high-waisted pants.
High-waisted pants are not only comfortable but they’re flattering as well since they cinch you in at the waist and create a slimming effect. Want to add a touch of fall to your look? Opt for a pair in a fall-inspired color like olive green, dark khaki, or burgundy for a seasonal touch.
Complete the outfit with ankle boots. Ankle boots not only add a stylish element to the outfit but also keep your feet warm during those chilly fall mornings. Top off your outfit with your favorite accessories to achieve a casual yet put-together brunch style!
4. cardigan + plaid pants + ankle boots
It’s only natural to want to try out a preppy look for your fall brunch outfits, and plaid pants are the perfect way to do that. This ensemble is perfect for a more relaxed and laid-back brunch outing with friends or family.
Start with a cozy and oversized cardigan in a neutral color like beige or grey. The cardigan adds a touch of warmth and comfort to the outfit, making it perfect for those chilly fall mornings. Pair it with plaid pants for that preppy and fashionable look. Want that fall touch? Opt for plaid pants in fall-inspired colors like brown or olive green. As well as giving a preppy touch, the plaid pattern adds visual interest too.
Complete the outfit with ankle boots – they are one of my favorite footwear options! A small heel on your ankle boots keeps these shoes comfortable and walkable but still elevates your look. Plus, they’re practical, keeping you protected from the cooler fall weather.
5. trench coat + striped sweater + pants + ankle boots
It’s true what Audrey Hepburn says, “Stripes are always a good idea.” Well, technically she says, “Paris is always a good idea”, but stripes are typically associated with Paris, and well, let’s just say it works!
Channel Audrey Hepburn and French style with this outfit combination. The stripes paired with ankle boots and a trench coat are quintessentially French and are a great idea when you want to create a chic outfit with minimal effort.
Start with a classic trench coat in a neutral color like beige or camel. The trench coat adds an air of sophistication to any outfit and is a staple in any fall wardrobe. Layer a striped sweater underneath the trench coat for a touch of pattern and visual interest. Opt for a sweater in fall-inspired colors like black or navy blue to complement the coat.
Pair the sweater and trench coat with pants in a sleek and tailored silhouette. Choose pants in a neutral color like black or gray for a sophisticated look. The pants can be tailored trousers or even a pair of skinny jeans, depending on the level of dressiness you want to achieve.
Complete the outfit with ankle boots. This combination never fails to impress and is the epitome of classic fall style and will have you looking effortlessly chic!
6. tank top + jeans + clogs
Live in a warmer climate? This look is for you. Start with a simple tank top in a neutral color and pair it with your favorite pair of jeans for a classic and effortless look. Whether you prefer skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, or even flare jeans, any style will work well with this outfit. Jeans add a touch of casual coolness to the overall ensemble.
Complete the outfit with clogs for a trendy and seasonal touch. Clogs not only add a fashionable element to the look but also provide comfort, perfect for a long brunch and then for running errands afterward.
Accessorize with a few simple pieces like layered necklaces. Carry a crossbody bag or a tote bag to hold all your essentials and complete your casual and stylish brunch look!
7. shirt dress + clogs
Easy and simple look? You got it. A shirt dress is a versatile and comfortable option no matter the occasion, but it’s especially a great option for brunch. The loose and relaxed fit of a shirt dress allows for easy movement and ensures comfort throughout the day. Pair it with clogs to add that fall touch.
If you want to highlight your figure, a belt is a good idea to cinch you in at your waist. Finish off the look with your favorite accessories, whether that be a delicate necklace or a stack of bracelets to add a touch of glam to your outfit. With this fall brunch outfit, you’ll be ready to enjoy a delicious brunch while looking effortlessly stylish!

8. turtleneck + blazer + jeans + flats
When it comes to fall brunch outfits, the combination is as timeless and sophisticated as it gets. This ensemble effortlessly combines comfort and elegance, making it perfect for a brunch date or a casual outing with friends.
A turtleneck is cozy for the fall weather. Pair this top with a pair of high-waisted jeans. Though you can easily wear dress pants, jeans add that touch of casual chicness to the overall ensemble.
Layer a blazer over the turtleneck for a polished and put-together look. Blazers always add a touch of sophistication and elevate the ensemble to the next level! Complete the outfit with flats that coordinate with your top to tie the whole look together. Ballet flats not only add a fashionable element to the outfit but also ensure you can comfortably walk around and enjoy your brunch.
And do you know what every good outfit needs? Accessories. Chic black sunglasses and a tote bag are perfect to complete your chic brunch look!
9. basic tee + blazer + high-waisted pants + sneakers
This look is equal parts casual yet chic, being versatile enough that you can wear it for other occasions and outings. Start with a basic tee in a neutral color and pair it with a comfy pair of high-waisted pants. Not only do they provide a polished look, but they can be very slimming too.
This outfit base is perfect for adding on a blazer. Layering a blazer over the tee adds a polished and put-together element that elevates the overall look. Lastly, complete the look with a pair of trendy sneakers for a cool and casual touch.
Opt for sneakers in a neutral color like white or black to tie the whole look together. A pair of minimalist sneakers is perfect for dressing down your look all the while having comfort at the same time.
10. ribbed dress + sneakers + tote bag
This look is perfect for those days when you want to look put together without sacrificing comfort! Start with a ribbed dress. The ribbed texture adds visual interest to the dress, while the comfortable fabric makes it something you’d actually want to wear to go out to eat. Opt for a dress in a versatile color so you can easily dress it up and down. Olive green is a neutral color, yet feels refreshing for fall if you want to take a break from your black and gray.
Pair the ribbed dress with a pair of sleek sneakers for a trendy and casual touch. Choose sneakers in a neutral color like white or black to complement the rest of your outfit. Not only will sneakers add a cool and laid-back element to your look, but they’ll also keep your feet comfortable during those long brunch outings.
Complete the outfit with a tote bag to carry all your essentials in style. A few simple accessories top off the look!
11. trench coat + sweater + straight leg jeans + ankle boots
The trench coat in a quintessential fall color is perfect for those crisp autumn mornings. A trench coat always adds an air of sophistication to any outfit and is a staple in any fall wardrobe. Plus, a trench coat in olive green, black, navy, burgundy, or cream is perfect for creating a chic and seasonal look!
And since fall and sweater weather go hand in hand, of course, you have to have a cozy sweater. Layer a cozy long sleeve sweater underneath the trench coat for extra warmth and style.
Pair the trench coat and sweater with a pair of blue jeans for a timeless and flattering silhouette. Blue, straight-leg jeans are a versatile choice that can be worn whether you’re headed to cocktails or brunch. Opt for a dark wash of blue for a more polished look.
For classic fall fashion, complete the outfit with ankle boots for that fashionable autumn touch.
12. oversized blazer + wide-leg pants + basic tee + white sneakers
Not like I’m speaking from experience or anything (though I am), but the best fall brunch outfits have elastic waist pants that leave room for you to eat a bit more than you need. Spoken like a bruncher who really wanted to try out that baklava croissant even though I was full (it was delicious by the way).
Black wide-leg pants with an elastic waist are perfect to build a look around. Not only does the silhouette add a chic element to the outfit but it also allows for easy movement and comfort. To keep the outfit feeling simple, wear a basic tee in a neutral color like white or black. The simplicity of the tee balances out the boldness of the blazer and pants, creating a well-rounded outfit. Plus, a versatile piece like a basic tee is so important to have in your wardrobe!
Now onto the statement piece. The houndstooth print in brown tones adds a much-needed dose of fall and the blazer dresses up these wardrobe basics a little – or a lot!
13. turtleneck + sweater vest + denim midi skirt + loafers
If you’re looking to make a preppy statement with your fall brunch outfit, look no further than this combination. This look is perfect for those crisp fall mornings when you want to look effortlessly chic and comfortable.
Start with a cozy turtleneck in a striped print to add interest to your look. The turtleneck also adds a touch of timelessness to the outfit while keeping you warm. Layer a sweater vest over the turtleneck for a trendy and fashionable look. Opt for a vest in a contrasting color or pattern to add visual interest and make a statement.
Want to break out your old (or new) denim skirt? Pair the turtleneck and sweater vest with a denim midi skirt for a stylish and versatile option. The denim skirt adds a casual and laid-back element to the overall ensemble, creating a perfect balance of comfort and style.
Complete the look with loafers to drive home that preppy timeless look even more.
14. denim jacket + dress shirt + mini skirt + Mary Janes
When it comes to cute brunch outfits, you can’t go wrong with incorporating a pair of Mary Janes. A French girl favorite, they are a retro and chic footwear choice that adds a vintage touch to the look while still being comfortable.
Looking to add a casual touch to the feminine shoes and fall brunch outfit? Try pairing a denim jacket with a dress shirt and mini skirt. This combination effortlessly combines casual and polished elements, making it perfect for a trendy brunch outing.
Start with a denim jacket in a classic wash. The denim jacket adds a cool and casual vibe to the outfit while providing a layer of warmth. Layer a dress shirt underneath the jacket for a touch of sophistication.
Pair the denim jacket and dress shirt with a mini skirt for a feminine and flirty touch. Opt for a skirt in a fall-inspired color to complement the season, or choose a print for some interest. The shorter length adds a playful element to the overall look, but knee-high socks can help add more leg coverage.
With this combo, you’ll look effortlessly stylish and ready to enjoy a delicious brunch in a trendy and feminine look!

Dress up this simple piece with some statement earrings. Opt for oversized hoops or dramatic drop earrings to amp up your brunch look, add a touch of glamour, and make a bold statement.
Whether you’re walking to and from brunch or not, that’s where comfortable shoes come in handy. These loafers ensure all-day comfort as you stroll from brunch spot to brunch spot but also add that fashionable element as well.
