Memorial Day 2021 is right around the corner and we’re ready to kick off the best summer yet! The holiday marks the start of summer with traditional BBQs and plenty of time with family and friends, and it also remains the day we honor soldiers and the armed forces.
We put together some fun MDW events to spark some inspo, and the styles that’ll keep you supported and stylish. Wherever the weekend takes you let’s celebrate the 3-day weekend in style.
Top Things To Do During Memorial Day Weekend
1. Join A Parade
Many towns and cities host an annual parade, and who doesn’t like a little pomp and circumstance? (If you are joining, it’s still best to practice social distancing, of course.) Here’s what we’re wearing on the parade route.
A long day under the sun isn’t as daunting with styles that move with you, and breathe! We suggest these breathable, lightweight and supportive foundation pieces under everything.
2. Memorial Day Trip
Whether you’ll be on a long drive, a hike or a relaxing weekend by the lake, your outfit should be the last thing you have to worry about - so you can focus on all the fun social events you’ve got lined up.
What you need: Styles with serious stretch, support and function. We pair these with a statement tennis shoe and sunnies.
Pro Tip: Always pack a swimsuit for a spontaneous swim! We love this swim top that doubles as a perfect tank in the hot summer heat.
Our tried and true favorite will make your day that much easier. It’s the ultimate form of self-care to wear a bra you love. No uncomfortable underwires or pinching here.
The backyard barbeque gathering with family and friends is the ultimate MDW tradition. Celebrating anything over good food with great company—always the best.
Since the summer heat has kicked in and the grill is fired up, you’ll need soft and lightweight styles to stay cool. Just add a comfy tee and you’re good to go!
4. Attend a Memorial Day Event
Music festivals and Memorial Day Ceremonies are all the rage for Memorial day across the US!
What you can wear: A comfortable and stretchy outfit that smooths you out, without turning up the heat. Wear this cami and capri on their own, or add a lightweight tank over top!
P.S. Our fallen heroes deserve to be honored and remembered. On May 31st, don’t forget to pause at 3 p.m to join the National Moment of Remembrance.
