Napa Valley Brunch Dress Code

If you ever find yourself in social situations when you feel greatly under-dressed, then today’s post is for you! Let’s talk Napa Valley brunch dress code, shall we? Not that there’s any established rules as to how you’re supposed be dressed when dining in the wine country… These are simply my observations after living here for almost a year.

Let me just preface by saying, Napa Valley is certainly a great place to be. It offers a variety of Michelin Star restaurants and bars, so if you love great food and top service, you won’t be disappointed. There’s many places worth mentioning (a Napa Valley guide coming soon), but today, I’d like to focus on one restaurant in particular.

ARCHETYPE

Archetype is located in Saint Helena, California, and if you’ve never been, put it on your list asap! You’ll find there locally farmed American meals that will leave your mouth water for days. A perfect example? Order their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes or the Boneless Babyback Rib Sandwich. You can thank me later! See the full menu here.

Now, what to wear to a Sunday (or any other day) brunch? Sure, Sundays are for being lazy, but in Saint Helena, more likely than not, you’ll find people well put together. At least for my standards. 😉 After all, Napa Valley is a pretty fancy place to be! Plus, it’s always appreciated when you make an effort to look great on the weekend.

For my visit to Archetype, I went with this Shein dress that just screams perfection. It even fit the restaurant’s interior! I am absolutely obsessed with all the ruffle detail on the dress. It adds a perfect touch of feminine and flirty. However, the dress is pretty snug and doesn’t stretch well (I’m wearing size XS for reference), so if you’re looking for a more comfortable feeling, check out my other brunch dress code suggestions at the bottom of the post.

  17. Seems like a great place to visit in Napa Valley 🙂 You look so cute in this dress! Atlanta’s brunch dress code is definitely more casual, but I still love places that make you dress up a bit <3
