Even if you're stuck at home, even if you didn't make it to the beach, even if your friends are all getting tan while you're not... you still get one great perk out of Memorial Day: you can now wear white again!
While we're not religious adherents to the "white only after Memorial Day" rule, we do get excited over whipping out our pristine summer threads for the holiday weekend. You can wear those white jeans proudly, embrace that white blazer, maybe even break out some new Keds or (if you dare) test-drive a white leather bag.
Need encouragement that you can wear white? See these celebs wearing white (both before and after Memorial Day) and get inspired. Happy holiday weekend, everyone!
