The days are getting longer and warmer. In the mid-Missouri area late May through early September it isn’t surprising to see highs in the nineties and evenings in the seventies. Read on to get inspired on what to wear. Arches Footwear imagined three events, of many, to set the mood: Memorial Day weekend, Show-Me State Games and the Total Solar Eclipse.
For him: Day trippin’
Memorial Day 2017 will be a great time to celebrate the start of summer in style. Whether it’s a staycation around Collegetown USA in Columbia, MO or a quick jaunt to the Lake of the Ozarks he’ll want to stay cool. He can try a classic white polo, fedora, some slim shorts and a pair of Volley OC Palm sneakers for a West Coast vibe.
For her: Stylish spectator
Friday July 21, 2017 the Opening Ceremonies for the Show-Me State Games will take place. It is typical for highs to be in the low 90’s, so the name of the game for what to wear will be all about light and airy. She can try a mix of blues and tans to express a more serene and nature inspired look. The Havaianas Swarovski embellished sandals could be a nod to the olympic tradition of gold medals, but will also be great to walk around in with the backstrap feature.
For her: Golden Girl
A total solar eclipse will take place Monday, Aug. 21, 2017 and Columbia, Missouri will be in the direct path of totality. Being home to the state school, the University of Missouri, Columbia residents are often adorned in black and gold. Being an SEC school, style is an important factor even if it is lights out for 2 minutes and 26 seconds at 1:12 p.m. She can show her Mizzou tiger spirit with a comfortable animal print flip flop from Havaianas, layered tanks, a bit of gold jewelry and her favorite pair of slim dark denim jeans.
