Fashion Series: Memorial Day Weekend Must-Haves

If there’s one thing your holiday weekend attire should be, it’s flexible. You know, outfits that can be worn comfortably on a road trip, for a family outing or even while relaxing in your own backyard! Your clothes should make you look and feel your best, without limiting what you can do. With all these things in mind, we set out to put together a look that does it all, and we discovered that it only took three simple pieces to make it happen! The best part? You can most likely find them in your own closet. It’s almost vacation time, so let’s get started – here’s what you’ll need:

  1. A lightweight dress – Memorial Day Weekend is the perfect time to break out those light and airy summer that haven’t left your closet since last season. We suggest going with something that has secure and comfortable straps or sleeves, and enough length so that you won’t have to worry every time the breeze hits you. To get our look, all you need is a cotton t-shirt (don’t be afraid to play with colors and patterns!) and an overall dress (we went with faded denim).
  2. Compression leg sleeves ­– One simply cannot be expected to survive a three-day weekend without compression! VIM & VIGR’s black compression leg sleeves (15-20 mmHg) are the perfect solution because they go with literally everything, they’re made with a breathable nylon fabric so you won’t overheat, and they help to prevent swelling, fatigue, achiness and more. Your new summer staple? We think so.
  3. Comfy shoes ­– If you’ve ever experienced the painful consequences of wearing uncomfortable shoes (and we bet you have), you should know that making smart shoe choices is key, especially if you’re planning on doing a lot of walking! We suggest wearing shoes that have a low heel and good arch support (you don’t want anything that’s 100% flat), a cushioned footbed and a secure fit. For our look we went with a cute pair of espadrilles, which are fine for some casual strolling, but even for that we still recommend inserting arch support insoles (you’ll thank us later).   

There you have it – our three holiday weekend must-haves are sure to keep you feeling supported, energized and stylish, no matter what you’ve got in store. We wish you all a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend – enjoy!
