A great brunch can be an all-day affair, so start your morning in style over croissants and champagne. We’re excited to unveil our newest fashion column, Side of Style, where we will pair on-trend outfits with our favorite local brunch spots. In addition to our monthly Fashion Menu, which highlights our must-haves, and the weekly Lust List, which highlights a trend we’re coveting, a Side of Style will be a regular, local fashion post that assembles the perfect ensemble for our favorite local brunch spots, leaving you armed and ready to walk out the door.
Our fashion picks are inspired by the ambiance and neighborhood of the eateries giving you no excuse to brunch in sweatpants. Unless they’re harem-style and sold at Bloomies.
For our inaugural piece, we’ve compiled the perfect outfit for Fiola Mare. The vibe at Fiola Mare on the Georgetown waterfront is upscale nautical, so we are loving this A.L.C. Huntington Stripe Dress, paired with pearl studies from Kate Spade, a Kiel James Patrick bow bracelet, and a vintage red handbag to keep you looking classically chic when you waltz through the door.
While at brunch, you must order the jaw-dropping bread basket, filled with croissants and sweet breads, and the shrimp n’ grits and bistecca and uova are phenomenal. (Read our full review, here.)
