What to Wear on Memorial Day?

Use these tips when planning or shopping for new outfits:

  • You can’t go wrong with a sundress or a collared shirt with pants. Inspired by the American flag, wear a white outfit with blue and red accents for a subtle holiday flair.
  • Incorporate more pops of red, white, and blue into your getup. Some cute Memorial Day outfit accessories to consider are American flag pins, earrings, scarves, and bandanas.
  • Choose comfortable and appropriate footwear for the occasion, such as sandals for a beach event or sneakers for a parade.
  • Comfort is key, especially if you’re attending outdoor events. Opt for sun-protective clothing with breathable fabrics to enjoy the festivities all day. When in doubt, stick to the colors blue, white, and red. But if you’re looking to mix things up a bit, other colors can also help you keep a proper Memorial Day look. Next we'll go over how to style and pull off different colors this holiday.

What Colors Do You Wear on Memorial Day?

Red, white, and blue—our national colors—are often associated with this holiday, but if want to branch out from this traditional palette, other stylish colors can still give a nod to the patriotic theme.

Neutral shades like beige, khaki, navy, and olive green can add depth and variety to your Memorial Day outfit. Utilize these colors instead of wearing plain all-white. You can also sport them as standalone pieces or mix them with the signature USA colors.

There’s plenty of room to get creative this holiday. Whether you’re joining a parade, hosting a backyard BBQ, or simply taking the day to lounge around, check out the following stylish women’s Memorial Day outfits for inspiration.
