Memorial Day Outfits
Written By: Sydney Woolery
Breezy blouses, crisp shirt dresses, cute sunglasses, and easy footwear are just some of the many stylish staples one can flaunt over this annual extended weekend.
And while you don’t necessarily have to get decked out in full-on flag bearing apparel, revolving your ensemble around a classic red, white, and blue color palette can certainly help you get into the spirit of this national holiday!
Listed below is a roundup of Memorial Day outfit ideas and products sure to keep you cool, patriotic, and in-style this upcoming holiday weekend.
For casual outings such as a bonfire or a laid-back family gathering, a striped boat neck shirt tucked into denim shorts with an easy pair of slip-ons is a classic combo sure to keep you both comfortable and stylish. Throw on a cute panama hat and sunglasses to accessorize and have a knit cardigan handy for when a breeze kicks in.
Another option is a cute tee tucked into cozy tie-waist shorts. Pair them together for a casual yet stylish ensemble or mix them up in ways that work best for the activities you have planned.
Use these accessories and hats for a fun and stylish way to update your vacation do!
For a slightly dressier getup, switch out the tee for an airy yet elegant blouse. Replace the casual shorts with chambray pants and trade in the slip-ons for a cute flat. Cat eye sunglasses and a swipe of red lipstick are simple touches that can instantly glam up your look, infusing just the right amount of vintage American flare.
Shirt dresses are another perfect garment to rock for when you want to be casual, but they are also slightly fabulous! Go with white or chambray for a piece that’ll keep your look in tune with the weekend’s patriotic theme and try to find one that’s belted for a more tailored appearance.
Worn with a pair of ankle strap flats, this outfit has a fantastic semi-casual balance perfect for a nice picnic or a fun shopping spree out with friends (because you know there are going to be some killer sales that weekend!)
Here are comfortable walking sandals for travel that are stylish, too.
If you’re looking to rock some serious glamour in your Memorial Days, opt for a gorgeous linen sundress with lace-up espadrille wedges. Few combinations embody daytime chic better than a breezy dress and espadrilles, so what better time to rock it than during this extended weekend?
Appearance aside, you’ll also be pretty comfortable. Linen clothing features an ultra breezy fabric that’s ideal for staying cool in the heat, while wedges tend to be sturdier than the average heel (especially on grass!) But of course, lace-up espadrille flats would work if you’d like a more casual shoe.

A sleeveless white blouse with a printed, flowy midi skirt is another great pairing for a classy Memorial Day look. Whether it be for parties, nice dinners out, or whatever formal events grace your weekend plans, this look is the perfect blend of dressy, breezy, and feminine.
Play up the combination with wedges or flats, a pretty blue clutch, and some fine gold jewelry.
Lastly, take caution when eating burgers, hot dogs or any other messy foods. Ketchup on a white blouse is not exactly a cute look (take it from somebody who has had to suffer that very same misfortune).

Who says Memorial Day outfits are limited to clothing? With all of the pool parties and beach barbecues that pop up over the holiday weekend, you might as well stay stylish with your swimwear selections, too.
A triangle bikini in a bold red or a chic one-piece adorned in blue stripes will keep your patriotic flare on point, whether it be while taking a dip in the pool or basking on the sidelines with a piña colada in hand.
Throw on a panama hat and sunglasses for some much needed UV protection during the sun soaked weekend. Slip into a crisp white pair of slide sandals for shoes that are just as chic as they are comfortable.
