Memorial Day Weekend is almost upon us and as the first official long weekend of the season, 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 30 stars informing our long weekend looks.
A classic navy sheath, comfy sandals, and a red lip are the key to nailing your holiday style: it's comfortable and still pulled together.
The best way to wear stripes, yes or yes?
A flowy romper or shirt-dress is peak effortless summer dressing.
White high tops + crochet lace + a bikini = summer beach vibes x 1000.
Play with cool pastels and bright accessories (and let's not forget the red lip) all in one look when you're already over the color white.
One of the coolest teens around schools us on the art of wearing double-denim without it looking like a straight-up Canadian tuxedo. The key? High-waisted denim and a summery halter paired with chic lace-ups.
A cropped tee and high-waisted jeans plus the classic white sneaker is ideal for a low-key get-up.
A loose-fitting shirt-dress that's more caftan than business-casual is one way to feel like you're at the beach instead of in the middle of a concrete jungle.
An off-the-shoulder top plus a midi skirt is the ideal getup when you're planning to be in close proximity of a boat/incredible yacht.
Okay, *another* Elle Fanning look for the books: a breezy bandeau and a high-waisted tennis skirt when it's too toasty to imagine wearing sleeves.
If you're heading to a fussier Memorial Day party, throw on a dressy shirt-dress and heels that you don't mind getting stuck in the grass.
If you're of the "more is more" mentality, do as Rita Ora does and wear a graphic tee with an equally bright midi skirt.
A slouchy sweater worn off the shoulder with a floral maxi skirt is equal parts chic and pajama-level comfy.
A denim romper is the freshest take on all-American denim. Plus, cut-outs can be an ultra-cool detail that helps ventilation. (Double duty just got so real.)
A print maxi dress is always a breezy, tried-and-true classic that you can dress up with a trendy pair of shades and a structured tote.
If it's a piping-hot day, look to a silky slip dress (worn with sneakers, for extra cool points) and a head scarf—you know, to keep frizz at bay.
If you'll be at the beach, keep cool and cover up by throwing a print maxi skirt over your swimsuit.
A chambray skirt can be as versatile as your favorite pair of jeans, especially when paired with a bohemian crop top.
Take notes from Lively who sticks to a neutral color palette for her print sundress and tennis shoes, then adds a pop of color with a canary yellow purse.
Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses like Fanning's chambray number are super of-the-moment. Not to mention, they balance perfectly with a cute sun hat.
Hathaway looks totally fresh braving an all-white look, plus she proves a fanny pack can, in fact, be fashionable in a cool texture or print.
PSA: Ball gowns can be worn in the daytime, according to Kendall Jenner who styles hers with a white eyelet crop top.
Plaid prints are a staple year-round. In summer, look for silhouettes that breath like Zendaya's wrap top and billowy skirt.
Consider toughening up a flirty romper with boyish accessories, like Delevingne's mod cap and high-top sneakers.
For dash of polish, throw a white blazer over a crisp, classic striped button up and run with it.
Chung's tailored ivory frock is a reminder that thrifted or vintage-inspired threads are especially charming during the warmer months.
Nyong'o looks especially lovely swirling around in her perfectly-tailored LWD—and you will too, trust.
Kloss strikes the right balance between style and function by wearing a body-hugging, knee-length black dress with a leather backpack.
Your go-to black trouser can get just as much play on a summer weekend, so long as you pair them with light, neutral colors in silhouettes that breathe.
If you're worried that overalls are lacking any sort of sex appeal, look for them in a fitted shape that shows off your form.
