This weekend kicks off the unofficial start of summer. If you need last-minute ideas for Memorial Day celebrations through the rest of the season, I’ve got you covered with stylish outfits that stand up to the Carolina heat — from breezy floral maxi dresses to casual looks with comfortable sneakers. And they’re all available at local boutiques.
Heading to the beach? Try a breezy maxi dress paired with lightweight accessories.
This Rebecca Minkoff Lucy dress in blue ($298) is perfect paired with Schutz Heloise wedge sandals ($180), a Rebecca Minkoff Serra foldover clutch in blossom multi ($75) and a pop of color with bright yellow beaded earrings ($40).
Lipp Boutique: Hibiscus Off the Shoulder Top $94.00, Midrise Skinny Crop Jeans in Optical White $195.00
Invited to a garden party? Complement bold, floral prints with neutral pairings and geometric accessories.
This Milly handkerchief skirt ($550) with a Ramy Brook Lynn top in ivory ($275), Milly diamond square clutch ($295) and Schutz Felisa heels ($180) is airy enough to keep you cool but still looks polished. Keep jewelry simple and understated with minimalist rings.
