5 Memorial Day Weekend Outfits You Need to Scoop Up Now

Cue the fun in the sun: Memorial Day weekend is almost here. Can we get an amen? Now that you’ve got your plans squared away — and have uncovered the quintessential weekend bag — it’s time to get packing. Nothing says stress-free holiday weekend planning like having a lineup of foolproof #OOTDs on the ready. We’ve done the work for you; keep scrolling for five top-notch MDW outfit ideas that are guaranteed to shine.

1. Pool Party: Make a splash (literally) at the biggest pool party of the season with a statement-making one-piece that does all the slaying for you. (This cobalt blue stunner from Ban.do gets our vote.) Throw in a scene-stealing pair of color-block pool slides, a playful straw tote, and some retro-glam sunnies for a getup that says “out of the office until further notice, TYVM.”

2. Wedding Weekend: Whether you’re a bridesmaid, maid of honor, or attendee, a flirty day dress that turns heads will always do you right. Between the golden yellow hue and frilly ruffles, this Grecian-inspired maxi delivers no shortage of Drama (with a capital D). Throw in a tassel sunhat (which can be worn like a backpack, BTW), an of-the-moment bamboo clutch, and strappy bronze sandals for the wedding lewk of the season.

& Other Stories Frill Dress ($115), Kate Spade Tassel Backpack Sunhat ($168), Charlotte Stone Petra Bronze ($245), & Other Stories Round Sunglasses ($39), Cult Gaia Small Bamboo Ark Bag ($125), Zara Multicoloured Pom-Pom Earrings ($16)

3. Vineyard: Ah yes. As you pretend you’re a high-profile celeb sipping vino in Napa Valley, a ceaselessly chic getup is absolutely in order. To ensure that you’re cool and collected, we recommend a slew of easy-going separates that won’t leave you dying from the heat. Exhibit A: Not only is this airy top with shoulder tie straps the definition of sweet summertime fun, but it pairs exquisitely with vintage denim cutoffs and a straw Panama hat. Let your celestial-inspired ankle wrap sandals be the star of the show — give or take a long-lasting red lip stain.

Scotch & Soda Tie-Up Top ($98), Re/Done High Rise Short ($204), Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in Oh Miley 200 ($30), Madewell x Biltmore Panama Hat ($58), Loeffler Randall Starla Ankle Wrap Sandal ($195)

4. Hamptons/Montauk Getaway: A stint in the Hamptons or Montauk calls for a #navyornothing uniform that transitions from day to night with minimal effort. We call dibs on this navy blue playsuit that can be elevated with a few simple accessories — namely, a sunny yellow striped convertible clutch, a straw hat, and sophisticated bauble drop earrings. Whether you’re soaking up rays on a yacht or sipping fruity umbrella drinks at the beach house, a pair of sensible lace-up wedges will ensure a blister-free weekend.

5. Backyard BBQ: Alright, alright. There’s nothing like a backyard BBQ with family and friends to kick off the unofficial start of summer. Keep things on the DL with some off-duty shortalls, a laid-back t-shirt, and a hands-free saddle bag with festi-cool flair. What else? Best believe a tomboy-inspired baseball cap (worn backwards, of course) and some OMG-worthy embroidered beach motif trainers will have you feeling like the Queen of Cool.
