It’s the best time to bring out all the summer trends you’ve been dying to wear and enjoy the long weekend. Although there’s so much to be excited for, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re at a loss for what to wear having been stuck inside for so long. So, I thought I’d round up some easy and effortless Memorial Day outfits that you can create and play on repeat these next few months. I made sure to pull versatile looks that work anywhere whether you’re in the mood for something patriotic and festive – or an outfit that’s understated but cool.

1. Red, White & Blue

Patriotic colors are my go-to for American holidays like Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. One way to prevent this outfit from feeling tacky is to stick to classic silhouettes and pieces. A red maxi cardigan worn on top of a white bodysuit and high-waisted denim shorts make a chic but festive combo.

2. Summer Set

I just can’t stop talking about matching sets lately – and they’re certainly a great option for Memorial Day weekend. They come in so many varieties that you can’t go wrong no matter how you’re celebrating. Wear yours with a summer hat and woven tote for the ultimate weekend look.

3. Knit Dress & Denim Jacket

If you’re in search of something easy, feminine, and chic that works for everything, look no further than a knit midi dress. Additions like a denim jacket and slides make a for a foolproof uniform.

4. Button Down Top, Denim Shorts & Mules

For an outfit that leans classic and casual, just pair a button-down top with some relaxed jeans or cutoff shorts. This is the perfect opportunity to rock stripes, stars or polka dots – or you can stick to a simple white linen top.

5. Red Dress

Whether you’re planning on laying low in the sun or are attending a cookout with your friends, a casual red dress won’t disappoint on Memorial Day. It’s another fail-proof way to rock a red, white and blue ensemble without looking tacky.

6. Neutral Tones

Monochromatic looks are an easy way to look polished without having to put in a ton of effort. That’s why they’re one of my go-to styling tricks no matter the season. You never have to worry about wearing items that mismatch or accessorizing too much. Just stick to one shade from top to bottom and you’re good to go.

7. Graphic Tee

Summer style doesn’t get any more classic than a graphic t-shirt – especially a band tee or something vintage. For the ultimate American style, you just need to team it with denim shorts and some classic trainers.
