Style Guide: What to Wear for Labor Day Weekend

The end of summer countdown has begun! It’s the last moments to celebrate the trends of the season. And what better way than with your most fabulous Labor Day fashion?  

There are many ways to celebrate Labor Day weekend. You may be gearing up for a family vacation, giving the kids one more adventure before school starts. Or perhaps you’re planning to tan poolside with your best girlfriends. Whichever way you plan to celebrate the Labor Day holiday, we’ve got your outfit covered! 

Check out our Labor Day Fashion Guide, below. And, hurry! Your favorite Summer styles will soon be gone.

Picnic Casual

There’s nothing like gathering family and friends for one last summer picnic! The checkered tablecloth, dad grilling at the bbq, and taking in the last days of sunshine - the PERFECT summer’s end. 

And your outfit? Go with something as functional as it is stylish! 

From setting up décor to lawn games at dusk, a day of picnicking requires lots of movement. Make sure you’re picking an outfit that’s not too structured or too tight. Want to style even smarter? Stick to breathable chiffon or jersey and you’ll keep cool while looking fabulous!  

We recommend an above-the-knee or knee-length summer dress, like the Maddie or Lexi.

Maddie is a fun and flirty A-line paisley print dress you'll want to wear over and over again. A V-neckline and above-the-knee length shows off just the right amount of skin to balance out the elbow sleeves with matching chiffon flounce detailing. Easily wear this dress from day to night.

Lexi is vibrant and dynamic. Made from floral printed stretch jersey knit, this dress features an asymmetrical side ruffle for that added touch of movement and femininity. Wear Lexi to lunch or shopping during the day, then add a heel and a sweater or jacket and you'll be ready to go out that night.

Soaking Up Sun

Making a splash this Labor Day weekend? From laying out poolside to building castles in the sand, it’s the weekend for soaking up sun! So grab your suit, sunscreen and - of course - your most fabulous cover-up. 

Now let’s talk – covering up, without the cover-up. 

Let’s see if this sounds familiar… You’re out shopping for a new summer swimsuit. And after finding the can’t-live-without it, show-stopper, you find yourself browsing the racks next to the swimwear section…the cover-ups. And there it is. It’s the hand-woven, macramé, boho cover-up you suddenly realize you can’t leave without. Fast forward through TWO swimsuit seasons and it’s aging somewhere in the back of a cramped drawer having been warn once. The cover-up, cover up – we’ve all fallen for it. 

Ladies, it’s time to ditch the cover-up, and embrace covering up! Save money, while adding a new casual go-to to your wardrobe, with a summer dress you can throw on in a pinch. You’ll have a cute and comfy beach outfit that you can wear over and over again. You may even find yourself running to it, instead of your morning sweats, for carpool drop-off! 

We recommend the relaxed fit, Terri, or the slip-on, Nicole. 

Nicole is the ideal dress for both day and night. The neutral tones of this striped stretch jersey knit dress make it an easy go-to for months to come, while the side tie adds dimension and accentuates your natural curves. You'll turn to this midi-length dress time and again.

Terri is your go-to dress for looking both casual and put together. With an extremely comfortable, relaxed fit and above-the-knee length, this dress pairs well with your favorite flats or sandals.

On Holiday

For you there’s only one way to spend the last holiday of summer: vacation! And via plane, train or automobile, you’re headed for paradise…Or at least that quaint B&B the next city over. 

Whether you’re destined for Cancun or Cleveland, style your holiday like a seasoned jet-setter. 

Choosing the right travel outfits can help make your vacation even more enjoyable! Start by limiting layering, and stick with single garments. You’ll reduce your time getting ready and your suitcase size. Then fill you bag with pieces that are as fabulous as they are effortless. A summer dress with a relaxed silhouette is a vacation staple! From a morning beach stroll to sunset cocktails on a cruiser, the perfect breezy dress will keep you feeling comfortable all day long. 

We recommend an a-line silhouette, like the Stevie or Isabelle. 

Stevie is simply classic. This beautiful printed chiffon dress is fully lined and features a V-cutout with a silver bar for added flair. This version of Stevie is perfect from work to play to daytime events.

Isabelle is a classic A-line dress. The vibrant floral print with matching chiffon flounce sleeves are delicately sewn to the waistline, creating the illusion of a more defined silhouette. The soft and flirty flounce sleeves coupled with Isabelle's short hemline make this an ideal daytime or date night dress.

Whether your plans are cozy casual or extravagantly lavish, our Labor Day Fashion Guide has your perfect holiday style!
