It’s a satisfying feeling: The first time you put away your big dumb heavy layers for good, and welcome the warm months ahead. Goodbye, pulling on a pea coat over your sweater over a button-down over a henley. Hello-o-o-o, packing a light bag for long weekends in the sun.
The official kickoff to warm weather style season? A Memorial Day weekend spent at the beach. Below, check out a packing list and outfit remixes for Memorial Day weekend style.
How to pack for Memorial Day weekend style with 12 simple pieces:
…and what to pack it all in:
SG Says: The shorter the trip, the smaller the bag. If you’re headed out of town this weekend for just a couple days, see if you can get everything you need into one of the weekender duffels above.
Memorial Day Weekend Style: Travel Day
SG Says: For an on-the-go outfit, layers are definitely your friend. Throw on dark-rinse jeans with your denim jacket for a look that’s stylish any day this summer.
Just don’t forget your shades (here’s our favorites under $100).
Beers at an outdoor bar
SG Says: If brunch is on your weekend agenda, add a dressier element to your casual shorts with a classic white button down. Then keep it breezy in a pair of textured espadrilles. Here’s how to wear ’em five ways.
Memorial Day Weekend Style: On the town
SG Says: Have we mentioned that we’re all about trunks and a short sleeve button down? Especially when they’re fan-favorite basics that have a little extra detail.
Bonus points: that snazzy bandana. Yes, you can pull it off!
Memorial Day Weekend Style: Night out
SG Says: Nothing screams summer more than a comfy worn-in shirt – and we love the look of it. Bring a jacket for those evening temperatures, but keep it tied together with your suede sneakers.
Memorial Day Weekend Style: Barbecue
SG Says: The stylish way to hide any BBQ stains and beers spills? A floral pattern, of course. Pop on your millennial pink cap to complete this comfortable yet unique daytime look.
SG Says: Bring back a touch of those long layers for the trip home by draping a shacket over your trusty button down. Simple and effective for the win, guys.
