It’s finally here: that patriotic part of the year that signals the revival of bright closet staples and the arrival of Summer. When dressing for the fun weekend ahead, there are three rules to live by: dress comfortably, stay cool, and have some fun. These rules can take you from the perfect Memorial Day look to a new closet of Summer staples to get you through the season. Here are some style tips to kick off your Memorial Day weekend.

A breezy top with a boho chic feel with some timeless denim shorts is a never-fail equation for success. Do you have some Memorial Day plans that go from day to night? Add some pop with a bold color or pattern. Incorporate some accessories that play off your main pop of color and you’re good to go, from the family barbecue to the beach with friends.

What’s more All-American than a good piece of classic denim? Tune into your playful side and sport some denim overalls. Pair with a casual tee and mules for a chic, casual, and comfortable look.

For the fashion forward gal that loves to create a style moment, a bold colored, over-structured top is your Memorial Day go to. Look cool and keep cool in a statement top and understated pairings to scream chic, with a dash of flare.

Trés chic earns all new meaning in this sleek yet functional get up. Trade in your bandana-choker for a silk patterned scarf that elevates a simple look to new heights. Keep it cool in all white with a classic tee and a pair of pants or culettes. Find a cute backpack (maybe that designer one you’ve been eyeing?) and don’t forget your piece of patriotism: in this case, this adorable star-shaped hoops.
