The List: Shop for Memorial Day Weekend (And Beyond) With these Summer Style Essentials

My friends — we’ve rolled right through May quite smoothly and stylishly, haven’t we? It’s now on to Memorial Day weekend, which brings with it two things: 1) The proper start of summer and 2) The need for a bag packed full of summer style essentials (if you’re hitting the road this upcoming weekend, that is). Our #OOTD series will cover what to wear for Memorial Day weekend, but this edition of The List is all business — simply shop away.


Standard Deviation Beta Denim in Light Indigo — $98

A slim, light wash pair of jeans that are neither too slim nor too light in color.
A pleasingly light (but not too light!) wash, with a slim fit and an agreeable price — that’s a summer essential in my book.
Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots — $269
Tough boots that are still worth keeping around for the summer.
Don’t you dare think about stowing your stylish boots for summer — there’s still a time and a place for the rugged-yet-easy-to-wear Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots. Try ’em with light wash jeans and a short-sleeve henley.
Mollusk Surf Shop Benetau Windbreaker — $180
A bit of retro styling and a whole lot of durability through spring and summer rain.
Rather than throwing on a flimsy, store-bought poncho when it gets rainy or chilly on the water this summer, reach for a stylish rain jacket — the retro-tinged, cool-as-heck Benetau Windbreaker from Mollusk Surf Shop. Mission accomplished.
