Memorial Day weekend means the unofficial start of summer, ushering in a lighter outlook, longer days and shorter workweeks. How could we possibly not celebrate such an amazing occasion?

And, of course we feel that anything worth celebrating is worth doing so in style. Whether you have a friend’s BBQ, a romantic beach picnic or just a lazy weekend around the house on the agenda, denim in all forms is the official uniform of this unofficial start of the season.
You can’t beat a pair of denim cut-offs for a hot weekend where you want to look sexy, but also be comfortable and ready for anything. Slip on a pair with an over-sized, white button down shirt, a pair of statement slides and a chic sun hat and you’ll look pulled together, but still totally relaxed.

Same goes for a knee length denim skirt. Tuck a fitted tank top into the waistband and throw on a pair of giant tortoise sunglasses for a 70s inspired vibe that always feels summery.
Classy and Casual Denim Perfection
Guys, anything goes when you have a great pair of shorts and a denim jacket to layer over your t-shirt for when the BBQ moves into the evening. Opt for a pair of all-white sneakers (what better time to break those out) or some classic deck shoes sans socks.
Next to style, we’re most concerned with the cocktails (or mocktails) and food.

A Sparkling Gin and Juice just screams Memorial Day weekend as do most things ice, ice cold and served with a red and white striped straw. And a hearty but healthy Bruschetta, topped with juicy and colorful tomatoes, is the perfect snack to balance out all the booziness.
However you choose to ring in summer this weekend, remember that the season ahead really is the best for new adventures, spontaneous trips and chasing dreams. We’re happy to be able to equip you with the best pieces to take you there in style.
