Heat up your look

Not only is summer upon us but so is Memorial Day, and it's the ultimate way to kick off BBQ season, so why not do it in style? Don't even worry about what to wear on Memorial Day -- we have the perfect outfit just for you below!

Striped camisole

Add stripes

Having a fun pattern will liven up your look. Stripes, polka dots, florals or other patterns are always a great way to dress up a casual outfit, especially if they have bright colors. This striped camisole by Tibi is ultra-chic and summer-ready.

Light damage destroy cut-offs

Casual on the bottom

Cropped jeans or denim cut-offs are a great choice for a summer BBQ. They will keep you cool and casual. These light Damages cut-offs from Zara are versatile enough to go with almost any kind of top.

TAMPAA Steve Madden

Colorful feet

A sandal or wedge with color is always ideal for summer. Add some sweet style to your feet with these TAMPAA Steve Madden wedges. They have a touch of bright color with an easy-to-walk-in wedge. Pair them with denim or a sundress.

Gold bangle from Nordstrom

Arm candy party

When it comes to accessorizing, gold bangles are always a summer hit, as well as wrap bracelets with hints of neon colors. This gold bangle from Nordstrom (seen above) will add shine to your arm, especially when doubled or tripled. If you're looking for something more snug, these Tory Burch leather wrap bracelets are realistic and chic.

Less is more

You don't want to be schlepping a huge tote around at a BBQ, so go small when it comes to a bag. A crossbody is ideal as you'll barely notice you're wearing it. This Hotel Festival bag from Ripcurl is small, light and affordable. The fact that it will go with almost any outfit doesn't hurt either!
