The no-time off stretch between winter holidays and Memorial Day Weekend can be excruciating. If you haven't had any vacations in between, breathe a sigh of relief that a three-day weekend is (almost) within reach. Whether you already have a trip booked (I'll see y'all in Mexico City) or plan to stay at home doing absolutely nothing (that's fine too), MDW is a time for relaxation and self-care. For those who will be out and about, it's important to get your summer style off on the right foot. One foolproof way to do so is by looking to celebs who 1) Are on the cutting edge of all the trends, yet, 2) still often look to the classics. (Denim never goes out of style.) Here, find the 39 stars inspiring our long weekend looks.

The not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather in May means you can wear a chiffon floral dress with sleeves and not succumb to a heat stroke. Instead of your usual sandals, swap for a pair of transitional ankle booties.

Going for neutrals or nautical stripes? Add an unexpected element via your footwear with bright colored sandals or heels. We love Gabrielle Union's outfit because it can take her from breakfast to dinner and everywhere else in between.

Transitional jackets like denim or leather are obvious choices for May. Take a page from Sophia Bush's book and wear your leather jacket with a striped shirt and cropped jeans instead of your usual t-shirt and skinny jeans combo. Loafers add that polished vibe.

Memorial Day Weekend is all about comfort, so if you plan to live in sweats or track pants all weekend, we completely understand. For cases when you do leave your apartment (to get coffee), cover up with a long beige coat. A simple necklace and pair of white kicks says "I tried."

When the weather's nice and you want to show off your midriff, a crop top is the best option. To avoid baring it all though, opt for high-waisted pants like a cool pair of camo bottoms and an oversized fleece jacket JIC it's still chilly.
