The holiday that kicks off summer has finally arrived. What will you be doing this Memorial Day weekend? Here’s a look at some Memorial Day clothing to get you in the mood for chilling back, relaxing, having a BBQ, and enjoying some fireworks!
Cropped Pants and a Cute Top
When in doubt, white cropped pants always look fabulous. This is one summer staple you won’t want to be without because there are so many ways you can style white pants.
I think a bright top always makes white pants look super fresh. Neutral accessories add that classy touch. Don’t forget that a little bit of jewelry goes a long way to elevate a casual Memorial Day Fashion look.
A Maxi Dress – Why Not this Summer?
Is your pool open? If you’ve got friends coming over or you are going to someone else’s backyard for a BBQ, then this is the perfect dress for a bit of sun and a casual get-together. Flat sandals are comfy and look chic with this easy breezy maxi.
Shorts- Keeping it Classy
It’s starting to get hot, which means you may be thinking about wearing shorts. How can you wear them without looking like a teenager or like a frumpy old lady? Here’s a solution. Chic tailored neutral shorts keep the look elegant but not stuffy.
This pretty boho blouse is perfect when you want to keep cool but need a little arm coverage. Finish off your look with a cute textured bag and some sleek black sandals.
Striped Front Tie Top
Welcome summer in this gauzy striped shirt that knots at the waist. These breezy linen-blend top comes in the prettiest pastel shades and will give your favorite jeans a nice, summery lift.
Pop the collar on the shirt, add some fun wicker earrings, and a cute straw crossbody bag and feel a tropical vibe starts to emerge. Rope wedge sandals are trending this season, and look great with this relaxed beachy look.
Though it’s perfectly fine to wear white year round, most northern gals start to bring their whites around May 24th. In fact, white jeans and a cute top are one of everyone’s favorite Memorial Day weekend outfits.
If the thought of summer has got you itching to switch out your blue jeans for white jeans, then try this style recipe. Wear a pair of crisp, white jeans with a bright, cheery blouse or top and a pair of cool, new, fabulous sandals.
The trick to feeling confident in white jeans is to find a pair that isn’t too tight ( I like to go up a size in white jeans), and that also is not too thin, as there’s nothing worse than pockets or undies showing through. Pair your fresh, new jeans (they do start to yellow after a year or so) with a vibrant colored top, and you’ll appear confident and classy.
Of course, shoes and a bag are the easiest way to update an outfit. These pretty gold slides are modern and chic. An off-white bag with gold hardware adds lots of sophistication too.
Comfort has become the number one priority for most women, especially at our age, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Athleisure wear is great for Memorial Day outfits, so long as you choose casual pieces that are high quality to uplevel your look. This gorgeous cotton pullover in sky blue floats above these cloud white shorts and cute perforated sneakers.
Add a classy tote, and some cute gold sailor’s knot earrings, and you are all set for a fabulous Memorial Day weekend.
