Memorial Day is considered by many to be one of the first signs that cold days are behind and that summer is on its way. As a result, it happens to be one of the most popular days for hosting an outdoor party. When it comes to choosing what to wear to a Memorial Day party, it’s best to keep things as bright as possible. The brighter and sunnier your look, the better you’ll feel about being outside at a Memorial Day party.
Floral prints are a great way to ring in the summer, and are perfect for Memorial Day. Whether you wear a floral printed top or skirt, you’ll be adding brightness to the party. Always be sure to pair floral prints with clothing that matches, and avoid wearing anything that is dark or overly bold, as pulling off floral printed clothing is all about dressing as airy as possible.
Black is typically reserved for evening parties and formal events, and should be avoided at Memorial Day parties. While it may be tempting to pull out that black dress you’ve been saving for a special occasion, it will likely look out of place on Memorial Day, and will certainly not help to make your wardrobe look bright. If they fit with your ensemble, however, black shoes may be appropriate, as black heels can actually look very good when paired with brightly colored clothing.
Avoid Bold Colors
Bold colors such as dark red, blue or purple all have their time and place. That said, they should be avoided on Memorial Day, as they will only serve to add drab to your overall wardrobe. Instead, focus on wearing light, airy colors that don’t draw too much attention to themselves. When the weather begins to warm up, the less obvious your color choices, the better off you’ll be.
