Rather than wear an obvious-looking ensemble for barbeques, beach getaways and pool parties this Memorial Day, we know an unexpected look is up your alley. While you’ll definitely want to nod to patriotism with your summery new pieces, think outside the box and aim for combinations that are uniquely on theme. Ahead, we’ve curated three gorgeous outfits that will feel fresh from the beach to your backyard. Each one is guaranteed to flatter all body types, sizes and ages. Not to mention they’re ultra-stylish, too. Hello, summer.
Fashion-Forward Memorial Day Outfits
A star-spangled top, loose boyfriend shorts and comfy canvas slip-ons with hem-wrapped bottoms channel a French-girl vibe. Round sunnies, cool hoops and a modern straw bag finish it nicely.
A feminine little white dress is perfect for everything from the beach to cocktails. It's ultra-flattering with a self-tie belt to cinch at your waist. Bright frames, an intricate bag and sleek slides are simple-but-bold add-ons.
Go for a forward Americana look poolside. Post-dip, style a fringed pareo, wide-brimmed hat and pared-back sandals with your suit. Throw on a woven bag as the finishing touch.
