Do your plans for Monday evening include a grill? Two questions: Can we join you? And what are you wearing?

We won’t be offended if the answer to the first question is ‘No,’ but we’d love to help you choose an outfit! Here are three of our picks for the perfect Memorial Day ensemble:

Take a cue from Vanessa Hudgens and try a high-low dress that’s breezy and basic. Her “Windsong” frock by Local Celebrity is $115; paired with a waist-cinching belt, statement necklace and simple sandals, it’d be the perfect pick for a day with pals. (Just don’t forget a cardigan in case it gets chilly.)

If you’d prefer pants, follow Jessica Alba‘s lead and build an outfit of summery hues. Her cuffed peach pants look perfect with her aqua top, cropped denim jacket and lightweight scarf. A bright bag, slick shades and sparkly shoes (like these, from TOMS, $54), make it effortless.

Another option is copying Taylor Swift‘s basics, which you probably already have in your closet: a short-sleeved white blouse and shorts. Add flats, a purse, sunglasses and pretty hair and you’ve got yourself a picture-perfect outfit.

What are you planning to wear out this evening? Have any summer style favorites so far?
