Memorial Day Weekend Outfit Ideas

I can’t believe I’m saying this but Memorial Day is coming up next week (!!!) so I wanted to share a few outfit ideas with basics that pretty much everyone has in their closet. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to go out and buy a new outfit for one day, so in those cases, you just take what you have and try and make it into something new-ish.

Outfit #1

This first outfit is my favorite and probably exactly what I’ll be wearing on Memorial Day this year! Memorial Day is one of those holidays that people wear red, white and blue on, so that’s what I did here. I paired a tie up red and white top with regular old distressed straight leg jeans and some sandals. Super simple, but very cute and a little sexy.

Outfit #2

This one is another red, white and blue inspired look. The red and white striped button down is something lots of people have in their closet and so are white shorts! Paired with white sneakers, or sandals or wedges this outfit is pretty much universal, and really easy and comfortable too.

Outfit #3

I’m a big fan of denim on denim these days (mostly on other people LOL) and MDW is a perfect time to try it out I think. Denim shorts and a cute tube top are pretty easy to do but throw on a denim jacket in a similar shade and all of a sudden people will be asking you for your instagram handle ’cause they think you’re a fashion influencer (probably not).

Outfit #4

This one is one of my favorites also. An off the shoulder top is such a flattering look and paired with a denim skirt its’s very feminine but still comfortable. Sticking with comfort, the sandals just tie everything together!

Outfit #5

Finally, a simple tank dress is always a good idea. I paired it with these platform heels to make it a little fancier but it would look just as great with sneakers or sandals! I added the denim jacket over top for layering purposes and in case it gets chilly at night.
