An Effortlessly Stylish Memorial Day Look

The Mannequin Party by Gino R Campodonico - Vanguard Summer 2015 1

Mannequins, are you ready for Memorial Day weekend? We sure are because it means that summer has officially started (FINALLY, right?!). This weekend we’re dreaming of a delicious BBQ with friends, ice cold cocktails, fun in the sun, pool parties and leisure boat rides – maybe even a quick getaway to the Keys, you never know. Whatever you’re doing this holiday, it’s always best to plan an outfit that can keep you looking and feeling cool in all occasions – whether it’s a casual backyard bash or cocktails at a bayside bar during sunset.

It’s always hot in Miami and now that summer is here…well, let’s just say things are really starting to sizzle everywhere else. Keep your Memorial Day look razor-sharp fresh with a cut-off muscle tee, shorts and comfy-chic kicks. This is an example of an outfit that is effortlessly stylish and versatile (wallet-friendly, too). Let’s play dress up!

Stack on some arm candy! We chose three black bracelets: one with skulls to go in hand with the look’s overall death and freaky mermaid vibes, another one that reminded me of caviar and, lastly, a spiky Valentino band for an edgy touch.

Levi’s 501® CT Shorts in Indigo Rigid, $68

“Inspired by its fans, Levi’s took the 501® Jean and designed them into the perfect shorts. Wear them true to size, down-sized, or up-sized depending on your style. Choose true to size for a classic fit. Size down for a modern, slim fit with a low-slung, easy-wear feel through the hips and thighs, or size up for a slouchy, more progressive look.”
