What 9 Stylists Are Wearing, Watching, Eating, and Reading This Weekend

Even though we've been sheltering in place since March of this year, it has remained impossible not to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend. 

First celebrated in the years following the Civil War as a way to honor military personnel that died while serving in the armed forces, this practice became a United States Federal Holiday in 1971 and is now honored on the last Monday of every May. Over time, it has come to signal the unofficial start of summer with the openings of pools, beaches, boardwalks, and barbeques—not to mention incredible sales.

Of course, this Memorial Day Weekend will undoubtedly look different. Since many of us are still sequestered at home, the team at Who What Wear thought it best to reach out to our stylish friends across the country for some three-day weekend inspiration.

With that in mind, we caught up with nine of our favorite stylists to see what plans they had in store. While soft-serve ice cream, cute swimsuits, and great music are still on the agenda, this MDW is supplemented by our continued support of first responders, essential workers, and communities in need around the world—and perhaps a little more reading and TV than usual. 

So without further ado, I am pleased to present Who What Wear Weekend: Stylist Edition. To quote Elle Fanning in her latest role as Catherine the Great of Russia, I say "Huzzah!" 

And, of course, stay well. 

This weekend, I'm eating…
