The Foolproof Way to Dress for a Labor Day BBQ

If there was ever a perfect time to dress for summer, that time would be now.  Labor Day weekend is a few days away, meaning it’s your last chance to wear your favorite summer outfit. And when you’re in need of a Labor Day weekend look, J.Crew is always a great pace to look. There’s a wide selection of colors, styles, and silhouettes — in stripes, classic solids, polka dot, and more.

Labor Day weekend is around the corner and regardless of whether you follow the antiquated guidelines of when you can and cannot wear white, you’re likely reaching for your whitest of white dresses this holiday weekend.

In anticipation of Labor Day, we selected nine perfectly transitional dresses to wear, just in time for the long weekend. Enjoy, and happy Labor Day weekend!
