Memorial Day is often considered the unofficial start of summer, and for good reason! The three-day weekend is a harbinger of warm days, long nights, and good times to come—and, of course, a new wardrobe to wear for it all. Whether you’re planning a BBQ in the city or decamping to Fire Island or Phoenicia, “MDW” is usually your first opportunity to rip the tags off a breezy sundress or barely there sandals. But if you’ve yet to turn your attention to your summer look, don’t stress; you’ve still got 20 days to plan, and we have a few ideas for what you should pick up first.

To start, consider an especially on-trend tie-dyed bag like Prada’s mesh bucket; if you’re lucky enough to find yourself on the beach or by the pool, it’s just large enough to fit a bottle of sunscreen and a terrycloth hat. A strapless swimsuit like Solid & Striped’s tangerine maillot could work double-duty as a bodysuit under denim cut-offs, or simply throw a prairie dress on top for a little built-in SPF. As for new jewelry, don’t miss out on the seashell trend; Brinker & Eliza’s rosy pink necklace is an elevated, grown-up take.

Below, we found a few more items fit for the holiday weekend—and a blissful summer ahead.
