Memorial Day weekend is upon us. It’s a time to remember those who served and died for the country, to gather with loved ones and bring in what feels like some long overdue summer sunshine. Whether you’re planning a trip over the long and (hopefully) luxurious-feeling three-day weekend or you’re planning to stay put, we’ve got more than a few styles to help you soldier on in style.
If you’re a strict rule-follower then you’ve been waiting all year to wear white. So go all out. Pair your favorite white cut off shorts or capris with a cotton blend white t-shirt or linen popover. Weave in a one of our fun striped scarves (we’re loving the ones that are also dotted with lobsters or crabs) and you’ve got a comfortable look that you’ll make you reconsider breaking the “No white after Labor Day” rule.
Star patterns are really shining (and trending) this season. Pair your favorite pair of white jeans with one of our navy starry t-shirts or if it’s chilly, one of our pullovers. Layer it with a denim jacket, a pair of our stars and stripes slip ons, and you’re off to the races (or the parade).
Want to go all out with your look this weekend? We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves to help you get there. Take a pair of our vintage red shorts and pair them with a classic blue and white striped shirt with three quarters sleeves. It’s a perfect balance for the summer and the fabrics are so soft they’re made for long days off. To top the look off, try out one of our super summery striped bags. If you’re heading to the beach, opt for our larger size star bag to fit everything from your book, to your blanket, to your picnic lunch. But if you’ll be spending the day around town, try the smaller red and white striped bag.
Stars and Scarfs
If you’re just looking for a touch of the classic patriotic patterns, look to your accessories. Our stars and stripes slip on sneaks say it all, in classic navy, red, and white. Layer the look with your favorite pair of denim capris and a bright white shirt. Knot it up with a red paisley-patterned scarf, either with a tidy knot close to your neck or a looser one. That way your accessories are busy but your base layers aren’t. It’s all about the balance.
Knotty and Navy
If you love the look of stripes, but are looking for some other way to wear them than the typical striped t-shirt, search for it in a scarf. We’ve got a few white, navy and red striped ones that do just the trick. They’re the perfect accessory for early summer weather; warm but not heavy. Knot one atop a navy t-shirt paired with white denim and you’ve got a look that’s subtly celebratory.
As you know, we have a lot of Saratoga pride. If you’re feeling patriotic not only for the country but for toga too, why not show it in style? Take our brand new Saratoga striped long-sleeved shirts, which come in a cotton blend, and pair it with some white denim or a pair of wide-leg army green pants from Sundry. They tap into the wide leg trend and add a twist with little applique details. Top it off with a solid red or maybe a paisley patterned scarf and you’ve got a look you’ll want to wear year round.
