With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start shopping for chic and functional summer barbecue-worthy ensembles! Whether your style is preppy, boho or feminine, I’ve rounded up three different looks that will keep you cool and comfortable as you’re feasting on hot dogs, potato salad, corn on the cob and hopefully a refreshing cocktail (with an umbrella of course)!
As a Splender member, you receive cash back on each purchase, so that means more money for you to splurge on a mini getaway or a fun-filled staycation as you ring in the summer with family and friends!
- Preppy: Nothing screams preppy more than a classic striped top, crisp white denim shorts (both available at J.Crew with 6% cash back) and Jack Rogers sandals (available at Neiman Marcus with 6% cash back).
- Boho: The boho look is a major trend this season, and this chambray embroidered dress (from Intermix with 4% cash back) epitomizes this style perfectly. Pair it with these platform gladiator sandals (available at ShopBop with 4% cash back) and this frayed panama hat (find it at Century 21 Department Store and earn 4% cash back) for an easy and effortless look.
- Feminine: How flattering is this floral romper (available at Tory Burch with 4% cash back) from Tory Burch? You can dress it down with flat sandals (available at Macy’s with 4% cash back) and a straw tote (from Athleta with 3% cash back) for a relaxed feel.
Or pair it with wedge espadrilles (available at Lastcall by Neiman Marcus with 6% cash back) and a straw clutch (available at J.Crew with 6% cash back) for an elevated look. Throw on a denim jacket or a lightweight scarf (find them both at Old Navy and earn 3% cash back) when the sun goes down, and you’re good to go!
Whether you’re celebrating Memorial Day weekend by the coast, in the country or in the city, these versatile and stylish summer looks are ideal for barbecuing with your favorite people! Look for comfortable wardrobe pieces – like summer sandals and wedges – that will effortlessly segue from day to night, and don’t forget to pack a lightweight jacket or scarf for chilly evenings.
