The Perfect Last Minute Outfit for Memorial Day Weekend

However, with a few easy outfit formulas on hand, you can quickly pull something together that is suitable for any celebration from beach trips to BBQs to a relaxing day in the city. Today, I thought I’d share one of my go-to looks that don’t just feel right for Memorial Day weekend – but can be worn all summer long. It’s composed of just four simple pieces that you can scoop up from Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks is my go-to when I’m in need of smart investment pieces that can be worn now and forever. They carry some of the best contemporary brands I rely on for a fashion quick fix, such as Veronica Beard, ALC, Vince and more. The key items I’ll be sharing below are what I consider the right investments for summer.

Crop Top

Crop tops can be found anywhere – but not all live up to the same quality. For Memorial Day weekend, I prefer something with wider straps that isn’t too revealing and has a good compression fit. A thicker fabric is always a bonus too. Those three elements combined will have you summer-ready instantly. This ALC crop top checks all those boxes – and I love that it makes for the perfect base layer.

When it comes to summertime, there is nothing like white bottoms whether that’s a pair of trousers or shorts. Whenever I’m rocking a crop top, I try to keep my outfit more modest on the bottom, so I opted for these paperbag waist pants. The crisp front seams make them feel elevated, so I styled mine with heels. However, they’d be just as chic with flat sandals. Once Memorial Day is over, you can take them straight into the office.

Woven Handbag

A lofty woven bag is a must over any summer holiday! The thing about them is that you can stash everything you might need in it whether that’s an extra pair of comfy shoes, sunscreen, or sunglasses. I can’t recommend this Cult Gaia tote enough – it’s the perfect designer bag under $700. The raffia texture with the chain strap feels so luxe and feminine. It’s quickly become a new favorite!

The final item you need to complete your last minute Memorial Day weekend look is a pair of sandals. These tie-ankle heels are a life saver whenever I’m on a time crunch. They’re endlessly chic, comfortable and go with everything. You guys have seen me wear them repeatedly over the years which has completely justified the price. If you’re looking for something more affordable, Saks has other beautiful options by Schutz and Sam Edelman that I’ve linked below.
