Vanessa's look is going to be my entire vibe, not only for Memorial Day but all summer long. A flowy prairie dress combined with clogs and double fisted iced coffee? Such a mood. This look will take you from a beach to a BBQ and everywhere in between.

We love a crocheted moment on everything from bikinis to ready-to-wear. And we can't argue that jeans and a white t-shirt are a not summer classic, but expand your horizons. For added flare, swap out your tee for a crochet top.

MDW comes with an extra day off work, meaning you can take some time for R&R with the girls. Make your airport arrival look like a statement with the help of an all-white ensemble. Throw on a thin sweater and slouchy pants for total comfort, while pulling it all together with a great sun hat and matching accessories. It's just as easy as sweats, but so much chicer.

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."

The type of outfit you see and think, "Damn, this is effortless." So long as you have a white button-down (a boxy, oversize one works best) and a pair of non-skinny jeans, you can master this look. Remember to cuff your bottoms to show off your ankles and shoes.
