August Long Weekend Wardrobe Essentials
The August Long weekend is coming up - don’t be sad that summer is halfway over, be glad we still have half the summer left to enjoy! Whether you’re heading to the lake or hanging out in the city, Style Bar has all of your long weekend wardrobe essentials covered.
For Relaxing in the Sun: Easy Breezy Linen Dresses
Maxi dresses will always be a warm weather staple for me! With a lightweight blend of Rayon and Linen, the Linea Maxi Dress will be your new favourite go-to.
For that Long Weekend BBQ
I’m a big believer in not wearing pants more than I have to. T-shirt dresses are comfy, cute, and look great with a pair of sandals and a hat at that long weekend BBQ you’re attending.
The Morgan Dress is a staff and customer favourite, with its relaxed fit, curved hems, side pockets and soft French Terry Knit material. Available in Black and limited sizing remaining in Denim Blue, Mauve, Mint and Lavender.
Worry not, fellow tall girls, we’ve got you covered too! The Dee Peplum dress features the same terry knit material as the Morgan, but provides more leg coverage. The adorable peplum detail dresses it up a bit, but is still an easy piece with its relaxed fit and racer back. Available in Lavender and Black.
Not into the dress idea? (I also often opt for pants at family gatherings so I can play hard with my nephew!)
The Goldie Ribbed Knit Tank pairs great with your favourite pair of jeans (or jean shorts - weather permitting). This 100% cotton beauty features contrasting adjustable tie straps and is the perfect length to tuck into high waisted pants.
The Nancy Tie Front Blouse is another great option (with the added bonus of some shoulder coverage to protect you from the sun).
For Patio Hopping With Friends
Some of my favourite summer memories were made on a hot day, hanging out on a patio with my best friends.
The Meet Me in Bali Maxi Dress and the Suzie Plaid Midi Dress are both great patio options! Their smocked tops are stretchy and comfortable, and their adjustable straps make it easy to get the perfect fit. Whether you love a bold and colourful floral, or a softer palette, either of these dresses will have you feeling pretty in pink!
For Cozying Up By the Fire (or on a Rainy Day)
Let’s face it - the weather has been pretty unpredictable and wet this summer. The Willow Sweater is perfect for curling up with a cup of tea and a good book on a rainy day, or keeping warm by the campfire.
We love its textured knit, boxy fit and ribbed hem and cuff details.
For the Future Mamas
You know we wouldn’t forget about you! We’ve got all of your long weekend essentials, from beachy dresses to wardrobe staples.
A tank top with a denim skirt is a classic summer look. This Snap Front Maternity Tank has the added bonus of being nursing friendly! The Off Duty Maternity Skirt has a super soft and stretchy jersey maternity waistband.
The Body Bootcut Unitard is a super versatile and comfortable piece, with adjustable straps and a built-in shelf bra. Its Bamboo and Spandex blend will keep you cool and grow with you. Throw on a lightweight linen shirt for a nice daytime look, or pair with a jean jacket, your favourite jewelry and a pair of heels for a night out.

Whether you’ve got big plans or are keeping it low-key this long weekend, Style Bar has what you need to have you looking and feeling good. These looks also all pair great with SPF and a hat ;)
