SlamXStyle: Mother’s Day Is Sunday, Here’s What To Wear To Brunch With The Woman Who Gave Birth To You
Richard James Unconstructed Linen, Wool and Silk-Blend Blazer // You’ll want to go with a blazer that’s unconstructed. It’ll look dressy for brunch, but will also let you move and breathe as you tour your mother through the city.
James Perse Jersey Crew // Once you’ve got the blazer, go casual and comfortable with a jersey bottom tee from James Perse.
Club Monaco Chambray Elastic Cuff Pant // Avoid jeans because brunch spots that are worth bringing your mother to tend to frown on them, but also avoid chinos because they’ll make you feel like a geek. This chambray piece will strike a good balance.
White Mountaineering Blue Suede Longwing Brogues // Ideally, you’d wear some sneakers in preparation for your post-brunch day of showing your mom the city, but again, brunch dress codes tend to hate sneakers. So, go with these light suede pieces from White Mountaineering. They have a dressy upper, but a substantial sole that’ll keep your feet cushioned throughout the day.
Paul Smith Blue 3CM Leather-Trimmed Woven-Cotton Belt // Match with the shoes.
Flowers // Remember your mother not only gave birth to you, but sacrificed her hopes and dreams to raise you into a man, even when she could have just left you out on a rock somewhere for bears to eat. The least you can do is get her flowers.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday (May 11th) and if your mom is coming to visit you, she’ll probably want to go to a nice little late morning brunch then walk around the city and see the sites. This presents a sartorial problem: if you’re starting off your day with mom at a nice restaurant, you’re going to need to get dressed up. But the newly warm springtime weather means you’re going to want to stay light and comfortable for your post-brunch adventures around the city.
How do you balance the two (and dress in mom-approved gear without feeling like a dork)? Well, this Tuesday’s SlamXStyle, a weekly outfit curated for timely events, has a set of clothes that offer the perfect balance between dressy and comfortable for this year’s Mother’s Day.
