What to Wear for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is obviously about more than 3 day weekends, barbeques, and cute outfits. But we love a reason to be festive! With this holiday weekend approaching and the world “opening” up a little more, maybe you’re heading to the lake or having a small get together and need something to wear! We’re here for you! Here’s our picks for what to wear for memorial day weekend.

Obviously, jean shorts are #1 on this list. They are the epitome of Summer, especiallythesewith the raw hem and the light wash. Not into the Daisy Duke trend? No worries!Bermuda shorts are making a comeback! The longer length is nice when chasing your kids around the yard, and for modesty reasons. No one wants to see your buns hanging out of your shorts. Be a little edgy with thedistressed ones or keep it clean and classic with a rolled hem option.

Toss on agraphic tee and ball cap for a casual outfit. I’m currently obsessed with theSteel Magnolia’s tee. But thisMerica shirt fits the weekend vibe. If you’re a Kansas girl, you need thislove Kansas graphic tee, show some state love!! I love the light lavender color of this tee, it can be dressed up or down.

I’m a sucker for a lightweight sweater and short option. Especially if it’s a rainy Memorial weekend like we always seem to have, or if I’m attending a nighttime bonfire. (S’mores are nonnegotiable, in case you were going to invite me to one.) Style theGo Getter Thin Sweater with your distressed shorts. Knot the front for a more fitted look or you can size up and wear it off the shoulder!! 

Look effortlessly chic by pairing the denim cutoff shorts with theSimplest White Button Down. Cuff the sleeves, add somegold chains, and dark sunglasses and you’re the coolest girl at the cookout! Honestly, it’s a look I’d wear all summer long.

I love a festive look! Memorial Day is like a trail run for the Fourth of July, so break out the reds, whites, and blues! ThisDipped to Dip top screams holiday weekend! You can even recycle it for 4th of July later on in the Summer. It’s a short sleeve button down with a dipped red and white stripe. Pairs well with your denim shorts or white denim!! How fun with theKanCan white distressed jeans?!

Go for a sweeter look with thismaxi dress, it’s a pink, white, and blue colorway but works just as well. Style it with some flat sandals and top it off with a floppy hat or my personal favorite a headband!

There is never a bad time to wear at-shirt dress. They’re so nice in the summer because they’re breezy and you can dress them up or down. Wear this neutral on the go dress in gray with a denim jacket and converse sneakers or a fun printed kimono and strappy sandals! Speaking of dresses...thebrunch it maxiis $19.99 and can be the most versatile of your Summer dresses! The spaghetti straps make it easy to tie a graphic tee over, you can wear it over your suit while running to the store for last minute needs, or to summer brunch with your gals! I’ll hardly ever say no to some stripes especially in a neutral pattern like the gray and white! Easily add your holiday colors with a scarf or bandana around the neck or other accessories.
