Whether you plan on sinking your toes into the warm sand or sprawling out on a grass field, Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to get outdoors and appreciate America’s beauty. And, of course, you need the perfect outfit to enjoy your long weekend. Refer to these fashion bloggers’ sunny styles for inspo!
Be bold and go for a maxi dress with an interesting print. Intricate paisley or colorful floral should do the trick. You’ll look just as gorgeous as these ladies strutting on the shore or running through a field of flowers! If you have an out-of-town excursion planned, mix comfort and style with a graphic floral print maxi, a long-sleeved crop top (perfect for too-cold airplane temps), and easy slip-on flats or booties.
The key here is comfort. Seeing as the main event at a cookout is eating, you’ll want something that’s easy on the waistline. You can’t go wrong, no matter your preferred style (flares, leggings, boyfriend jeans, you name it). Comfy pants get the job done, while looking classic and cool in the process. Then tie things up with an oversized denim top, checked button-down, or knotted tee. All of the above are appropriate choices. We totally dig the idea of sticking our bare toes in the sand and wrapping a knit blanket over our shoulders. Lazy day bliss!
Spend a day grilling at a BBQ or picnicking at the park in youthful overalls, as long as you style them to perfection like these girls did! Layer a bralette or plain tee underneath, but bring a classic denim jacket in case there are unexpected cool breezes. Slip into platform sandals or strappy espadrilles to finish off the look. It’s a simple, chic style that feels classically all-American.
Hit the shops or the museums with these leggy ensembles that fuse comfort and style. A classic white button-down is our top of choice before you can go wild with accessories. We’re head-over-heels for the floppy sunhat/stacked leather wedges combo. Or simply grab a catch-all tote bag and comfortable slip-ons for a blister-free day. Pool parties, here we come!
Speaking of pools, swimwear can oftentimes pose a challenge. We like looks that are sporty, printed, or retro. A solid color looks best on a two-piece cami set, while a plunging one-piece suit is stunning in a vintage print. Or soak up the sun with a playful high-waisted two-piece and colorful shades. But be aware that splitting your time in and out of the water means you’re in for several quick changes. A swimsuit that doubles as a bodysuit or halter top makes it super easy to freshen up your look. Add culottes and mules for an elegant pool party, or a button-front skirt and sandals for beachside relaxation.
