While guys can get away with wearing their finest pair of overly-short board shorts and the most bro-looking tank top in the back of their trunk, for women, Labor Day weekend fashion goes far beyond day-to-day wear. Labor Day is the last official weekend of summer and whether you are heading to the beach, festival, winery or on a fab stay-cation, there are so many options for what to wear. Here are a couple of my favorite Labor Day essentials to wear before breaking out the boots and sweaters:

To the MAX: Nothing says the end of summer like a flowing and effortless looking maxi dress. Here are some of my favorite looks before we put the flows and frills away.

  • Cold Shoulder—This maxi combines two of my absolute favorite looks: off the shoulder top and a high slit. The Lovestruck Maxi Dress (; $53.95) is effortlessly chic and flowing and floral. What more can you ask for for?
The Pink Lily Boutique
  • Saucy and Sweet—If beach days or wine tasting are what your Labor Day dreams are made of, you’ll absolutely love the You Know Me Best Maxi Dress (; $46). Featuring a beautiful green, wine, light peach, coral, light pink, white, and light jade print, it's simply a must-have print for the final summer fling!
  • That’s a Wrap—Wrap dresses have been a definite must this year and Slipped Away Dress (; $46.95) will not disappoint. With a plunging neckline and high side split, it is the perfect combination of saucy and simple.

Made in the Shade: No look is complete with out some stellar sunglasses here are some of the best of the best to wrap up this summer season.

  • Round and Retro—Take a page out of John Lennon’s book with some super unique round shades to complement your look. Some of my personal faves are these classic Ray-Bans (; $150) which will never go out of style.
Quay Australia
  • Mirror, Mirror—Mirror shades haven’t definitely taken over in 2017 and these oversized Quay Indio Aviators (; $49.95) will not disappoint. With gold accents and pink lenses, they are a statement piece in themselves.

Odds and Ends—top off your look with these fab finds!

Cate & Chloe
  • Jewels and Gems—I have been all about crescent moon jewelry this year and the Jordyn Independent Necklace (; $60) is the perfect combination of boho-chic and beautifully simple. It can easily be dressed up or dressed down to fit whatever you are wearing!
Fair Seas Supply Co.
  • In the Round—If seeking out sandy adventures this Labor Day, the San Diego (; $128) eco-friendly round beach towel/uber-adorable picnic blanket is both chic and provides utility! Get those instagrams you’ve been dreaming of all summer on this beauty.
  • Floral & Flirty—Embroidered everything has been a summer staple this year and these Mari A. Wanita cognac sandals (; $39.99) kick this trend into high gear. With a unique cylindrical block heel and an adjustable ankle strap, these ultra-adorable heels will be the talk of the Labor Day festivities.
