While Memorial Day serves to honor the fallen soldiers who have given their lives for their country, families, and friends from all across the States also can’t help but take advantage of the impending weekend for some quality R&R.

While some groups prefer to hit the beach, some prefer to stay dry in amusement parks or leisure farms. Whatever your plans are, we’ve pulled five almost-summer looks to help you plan your weekend.

1. Bright Colored Tops and Denim Jeans

Bust out the bright colored tops and denim jeans, because the weekend calls for an early welcome to this tried-and-tested summer staple.

If you’re not the blue jeans kind of girl, watch out for denim cut-offs in white for that classy and casual look.
