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


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.
