Our last long weekend feels like a lifetime ago… So join us in planning our well-deserved three-day weekend. Yes, it’s Memorial Day – a time to get together and welcome summer the only way we know how, with food, cocktails, and all our favorite people. Whether you’re keeping cool by the lake or barbequing in your backyard, celebrate Memorial Day weekend 2022 in summery pastel hues, cute co-ords, and breathable sundresses. Let’s get into it.

Cute Memorial Day Outfits for a Day at the Beach

If your Memorial Day agenda involves a trip to the coast, may we suggest a brand new beach set? For a cute memorial day outfit, opt for a seaside set with a difference in the shape of an elevated three-piece co-ord. A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, style an effortless three-piece matching shirt, shorts and scrunchie set, worn over your favorite vibrant bikini (because summer is no time to shy away from color). If you’re swerving the beach for the beach bar, swap out the shorts and shirt for a white crochet skirt and crop top set, perfectly paired with woven flatforms, neon shades, and a matching bandana.

Memorial Day BBQ Outfits

A long weekend requisite, base your Memorial Day BBQ outfit around a slinky satin slip skirt. These figure-skimming skirts are perfectly versatile when bridging those day-to-night plans. Even better? They’re ultra-feminine, modest, and super comfortable when worn high on the waist. For summer outfit inspiration, style a printed maxi satin slip skirt with a pared back white tank and contrasting statement heeled mules. If casual’s calling, pair a plain satin slip with an oversized sweater (French tucked) and your day one flatform sandals.

Casual Memorial Day Outfits for Relaxing by the Lake

Memorial Day weekend is a time for relaxation, self-care, and taking the time to check in with one’s self. What matters most is being with loved ones, breathing in the fresh air, and reflecting on the meaning behind the day. Take a nostalgic lakeside trip in cozy casuals that promise to provide that warm and fuzzy feeling. Our comfiest memorial day outfit ideas include biker short and oversized sweatshirt combos, paired with chunky socks and platform sneakers. Or a white basic tee layered under your timeless denim overalls, matched with some  classic high-tops to give off the Americana vibe we love.

Or show off your pride with our pick of star print, classic western cow print, or a ‘50s inspired polka dot. Hey, style them all – we’re big fans of the pattern clash.
