Whether you’re packing your bags — or just have a packed schedule — this upcoming long weekend necessitates a little wardrobe planning. Below, find the looks that will take you from
Saturday night out: Celebrate longer days and warmer temps with some sultry al fresco dining (that may or may not lead to a night of dancing). Maria Menounos creates the perfect balance of sexy and sweet with this perfectly-fitted hot pink frock. It shows off her amazing bod with absolutely zero “try hard” vibe; you can get the same look with this swingy fuchsia American Apparel mini. We also love the fun details she added, including pretty purple polish (we like Essie “Playdate”), which popped against her jeweled yellow sandals (these fun $45 Tommy Hilfiger ankle-straps add color in a similarly fun way).
Sunday barbeque: We are usually too chicken to wear white anything near a table full of ribs and watermelon, but we’re feeling bold this weekend. So we plan to emulate Reese Witherspoon’s picnic-perfect look, which has everything we want in our Sunday outfit: long sleeves (it’s still a little chilly where we are), cute sandals and a sun-shading hat. Want to put it all together? Try this gingham shirt, these cute white cutoffs, these similarly studded sandals and the ultimate topper, a fun straw fedora. Don’t forget sunglasses, sunscreen and a big smile.
Monday by the pool: Two of the biggest trends for summer swimsuits are fringe and brights. Knock out both in one go (and look adorable besides) in a bikini like Hilary Duff’s boho halter top, which she pairs with a coordinating Theodora & Callum scarf. We love a huge sarong for the beach — it comes with us on the plane as a cozy scarf, serves as a wrap and sun shield during the day and can even tie into a dress for later that night. Steal her sexy look with this red fringed bikini and a cute, oversized wrap.
