What To Wear To: A Memorial Day Barbecue

June 5, 2008 by Bryn

Yes, folks, get excited. Memorial Day weekend is a mere week and a half away. And you know what that means – you have to start thinking now about what you're going to wear to all of those barbecues. You're way past dumpy jeans and t-shirts (even though the male contigent is guaranteed to be sporting this garb), so why not knock 'em dead in a casually chic spring ensemble that says I'm here to party, and I look fabulous doing it?

Start with a fun and flirty print dress in a cool color palette. Pair with metallic thongs (gold will really pop) – just make sure they're not heels, since you'll probably be standing around the grill chatting up that cute neighbor. Then add on some bold accessories to brighten up the outfit, like a red or amber beaded necklace and some gold bangles. Finally, bring along a contrasting print tote   – but one that complements in a similar cool hue. (Not sure how to pair prints? Check out our step-by-step tutorial.)
