Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff of summer. Whether you have plans to lounge on the beach, attend a backyard BBQ or enjoy a weekend getaway, you need to make sure your 2017 style is on point for the holiday. Planning for Memorial Day should take some thought because you never know where the weekend will take you. Even a planned event can lead in a different direction and you may not have time to go home for a change of wardrobe. From a BBQ to the beach to an evening cocktail in the city, we’ve got you covered for Memorial Day fashion ideas.
The Patriot Look
If your plans are to head to the beach and enjoy a day in the sun, consider an ensemble that allows you to dress and undress with ease. A cute red, white and blue romper can easily be worn over your swimsuit. Throw in a matching tote to store your cell phone and make-up and you are ready to bare your bikini.
Another favorite for the beach is going bohemian style. Over your swimsuit, choose a free-flowing ankle length dress or skirt that keeps all eyes on you. Pair this look with wedge style espadrilles and you will be ready to go from the warmth of the beach to an evening with a bonfire.
Maximize with a Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses can take you just about anywhere. This stylish look allows you the option to dress and go quickly. A string top, V-neck maxi in a subtle pattern can be great for a casual outing or evening cocktails with friends. Throw on a wide brim hat and a matching tote bag to complete this summer look. A pair of flat, strappy or tie-up sandals can maximize this chic style.
Rock Those Jeans
For those who prefer jeans and a cool summer top, we have a fashionable idea for you. Wear your favorite jeans along with a short-sleeved and oversized white dress shirt. Finish off the look when you tie it at the waist. After all, Memorial Day does mark the start of wearing white for the season. This chic style looks fabulous with a pair of flat sandals and a handbag.
The Beachy Look
Even if you are not going to the beach on Memorial Day, you can still sport the beachy look with style. Choosing a pair of cropped flare jeans or denim shorts and a bohemian style blouse can make a beach statement. A pair of flat sandals, shades and some long gold necklaces will set your ensemble up nicely.
Let it Hang
Off-the-shoulder tops say you’re ready for fun in the sun. These cute tops can be sleek and form-fitting or bound with elegant flowing ruffles. Either way, they are ideal for beach wear, setting sail or simply hanging with friends. Pastel tops that hang off-the-shoulder can be very versatile and harmonized with a cute pair of white Capris, jeans or a maxi dress.
