9 Looks for Memorial Day Weekend and Beyond

Some people still chain themselves to age old fashion rules like wearing stockings with dresses and matching your shoes to your purse. I and most of the free world threw that and a few other fashion rules out of the window years ago, especially the whole white on Memorial Day regulation.

The last Monday in May is a day of remembrance and celebration, so the nation should be comfy and stylish. You will be engaging in some serious BBQ handling and hammock lounging, so your clothes need to be well suited. Here are nine look ideas courtesy of a few Houston based retailers and inspired by the latest summer trends.
