Suddenly, Everyone's Searching for Brunch Dresses—4 I Think Look Great With Mimosas

Spring has sprung and it's time to celebrate with an alfresco activity or two. I'm partial to a long afternoon in a buzzing beer garden, but my first booking of the season will be to my favourite outdoor brunch spot to enjoy a serving of vitamin D alongside my pancakes and mimosas.

Excited to indulge in my favourite weekend activity, you can bet that I already have a very clear vision of exactly what I'll be wearing to my forthcoming brunch dates. Now that the spring sun is shining down, I've noticed an uptick in interest in "brunch dresses" on Google Trends, so below I've rounded up four of my favourite dress trends to see us through our brunches in style. During the selection process, I made sure to prioritise comfort for all that eating and drinking, so expect voluminous silhouettes and breathable fabrics mixed in with new-season trends.

Read on to discover the best dresses to wear to brunch this season.

Style Notes: Delivering maximum comfort and a cutesy finish, a voluminous mini is the weekend staple I've been searching for. If the weather calls for it, style with knee-high boots and a denim jacket to keep you cosy, otherwise wear with leather Mary Janes or barely-there sandals.

Style Notes: For its breathability and versatility, a strapless dress will always be my go-to for elevated daily styling in the summer. For a mid-morning brunch appointment opt for a style with some stretch and don't be afraid to experiment with accessories to nail the tone of the occasion.

Style Notes: Don't let the fear of a small stain keep you from styling a pretty summer dress. Instead, embrace a playful printed style to conceal any spills so you can enjoy being out in the sun.
