This Memorial Day, we’re showing gratitude for all of the men and women who fought for our freedom.
Whether your Memorial Day weekend plans revolve around hanging at home or heading away for the much-needed break, it’s a great opportunity to dabble in some new season trends. Who says your Memorial Day outfit has to be red, white, and boring? You can celebrate in style!
Here’s what we’re obsessing over at the minute!
As much as we’ve missed high heels and espadrille wedges, comfort reigns supreme! Slides, slip-on mules, and sporty sandals are very much the footwear style du jour. During Fashion Week, we saw them everywhere from Fendi to Dior and Chanel. We approve!
Usually the domain of the fourth quarter and the holiday season, sequins shimmied and shone on the runway. But after all, are we surprised that designers wanted to up the ante after a year dominated by so much casualwear?! Paco Rabanne and Louis Vuitton went all-in with magpie-worthy silver co-ords and suits, while Isabel Marant and Balmain leaned in on matte metallics.
The midriff is back–did it ever go away? On the runways, we saw everything from bra tops to shrunken cardigans at brands including Alberta Ferretti, Jacquemus, Versace, and Dior.
While one might think a crop top is only for the brave, there is an abundance of ways to make the trend look flattering at any age. For instance, make like the models at Hermes and wear yours underneath a slightly oversized blazer. Alternatively, a long sleeve version paired with high-waisted trousers is always a good way to dip your toe into the category.
Skin-revealing, peek-a-boo cutouts were all the rage in the Spring Summer 2021 Collections. Don’t believe us? Just look to the likes of Fendi, Gabriela Hearst, Acne, and Isabel Marant where dresses came with cutouts at the waist. At Kenzo and Versace, things were a little more risqué, with slits and slashes at the hip and thigh. Your move!
Black and white
When in doubt, make a statement by contrasting the two hardest-working colors. This was seen to great effect at Dolce and Gabbana, with an eye-catching checkerboard print seen on dresses. At Chanel and Saint Laurent, there were timeless black dresses, jackets, and trousers trimmed with white details or accessorized with bows. Then, at Ports 1961 and Gabriela Hearst, simple but striking dresses half in black, and half in white showed monochromatic dressing down right.
Floaty, diaphanous dresses floated down the catwalk at brands including Chanel, Alberta Ferretti, Dior, and Kenzo. All things considered, a flowing frock is the perfect summer option for all occasions: just put it on and go, with a couple of key accessories. In terms of styling cues, why not team yours with a waistcoat, gladiator sandals, and a chic headscarf as seen at Dior.
Hemlines have gotten higher. Mod-style A-line mini skirts were having a moment this season, with leg-baring options seen at Miu Miu, Chloe, and Etro. They came both in prints like paisley and floral or just in simple block colors for a retro 1960s-meets-1990s appeal. Cher Horowitz would approve!
