Memorial Day Weekend (MDW) is just right around the corner. Contrary to what the calendar says, all of us know it marks the unofficial start of summer, meaning it's time to turn up the heat outfit-wise.
It’s time to get together and welcome summer the only way we know, with cocktails, food, and our favorite people. Whether you are barbequing in your backyard or keeping cool by the lake, celebrate this Memorial Day in a striped tee with a button-down midi skirt, breathable maxi dress, or a printed top you can pair with wide-leg pleated pants.
Whatever MDW agenda you are working with, here are some style ideas to help you out:
MDW outfits for a day at the beach
If your MDW celebration involves a trip to the coast, you might want to opt for a bodysuit or a beach set. For a cute MDW outfit, grab a three-piece co-ord. A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, style an effortless three-piece matching shirt, shorts, and a sun hat, worn over your favorite vibrant inners (because summer is the perfect time to play with color). You can swap out the shirt and shorts for a white skirt and crop top, paired with neon shades and a matching headband.
MDW Barbeque outfits
A long weekend requisite, style your MDW BBQ outfit around a Ponte skirt. These figure-skimming skirts are versatile when transitioning between day-to-night plans. Even better? They are super chic and comfortable as they come with an elastic waistband that sits perfectly around the waist. For summer outfit inspiration, pair a solid Ponte skirt with a white tank and contrasting sandals. If you are aiming for a more casual look, pair a plain Ponte skirt with an oversized sweater and flat sandals.
MDW outfits for a relaxing day by the lake
Memorial Day weekend is a time for self-care and relaxation. What matters the most is being with your loved ones, breathing in the fresh air, and taking a nostalgic lakeside trip in some cozy casuals that give you that warm and fuzzy feeling. Our comfiest MDW outfit ideas include biker shorts paired with sweats and sneakers. Or a white tee layered under your denim overalls, styled with a pair of strapped sandals to give off that American vibe everyone loves.
MDW outfits for backyard get-togethers
If your MDW agenda is to use your three-day weekend to blow off some steam, you might want to opt for a breezy maxi dress and match it up with simple strappy heeled sandals and a mini purse. Or show off your pride with some western prints, or a classic polka dot mini dress paired with long boots or fuss-free flat mules for a more casual look.
