Get your beach bag ready with these Memorial Day weekend necessities!
If youâ€™re heading out of town for Memorial Day Weekend, donâ€™t waste any time stressing about what to pack! We did all the hard work for you, picking out some of the most stylish warm-weather essentials youâ€™ll need, whether youâ€™re going to the beach, the pool or the lake (or really just laying out in your backyard). Scroll down to see the most essential essentials.
Start this holiday weekend with a subtle touch of red, white and blue. A red-and-white gingham dress â€” the print is a big trend this season â€” doubles as a cute coverup or party dress. A swimsuit is a necessity, obviously, so opt for this bold colored shelf bra bikini (another hot trend this summer) from celebrity-favorite brand Solid & Striped. Pack a few separates, too, like this red lace off-the-shoulder crop top and pair it with some star-embroidered cut-offs.

When looking for add-ons, find ones that will work for any and all of your summer looks. Because slides are the new flip-flops, weâ€™re into these Kate Spade New York slip-ons right now (plus, weâ€™re loving the pop of yellow!). No getaway is complete without a fun pair of sunglasses, and this round vintage style pair from Forever 21 is super cute and affordable. Pair them with a cute a bandana beach hat, like this one from Banana Republic. Donâ€™t forget your bag â€” go for a versatile straw market style.
