Shhh, do you hear that? It's the sound of future you having a ball and certainly not worrying about what to wear on Labor Day, because you'll be too busy having fun! It's your last attempt to make the most of the summer holidays – although technically the last day of summer is the autumnal equinox which is 22 Sept. this year.
So why not play with fashion and beauty and have a blast this Labor Day? It's probably your last chance to go all out until Halloween – unless you wear fabulously outrageous fashions on the daily, in which case I salute you – so you might as well embrace the spirit of the day. What you wear on Labor Day will of course, depend on your plans for the holiday. You might be jetting off for a long weekend away or holding the best Labor Day BBQ humanity has ever seen; however you spend your holiday will dictate your outfit choices.
That being said, there are garments, accessories, and beauty products you can wear that will suit a variety of events and can be utilized multiple times over the weekend. So here's what to wear on Labor Day to give summer 2016 the fantastic farewell it deserves.
