Memorial Day Weekend Must-Haves From Harper’s Bazaar Editors

Share

Memorial Day weekend is here, which means that for the next three days it’s likely your wardrobe will mainly consist of flats, swimsuits and worn-in denim. Unless of course you’re an editor at Harper’s Bazaar, in which case you’ll be rocking all of the above plus some not-messing-around dresses and runway accessories. Here, a few staffers at the glossy share where they’re headed this weekend and the essential pieces they’re packing. Who knows, their next-level vacation style just might inspire you to rethink your overnight bag.
