6 Celebs to Inspire Your Labor Day Weekend Getaway Looks

vacation style mobile

Labor Day weekend is not just a regular long weekend, it evokes many things, like nostalgia, back-to-school and a requiem for summer. It serves as a reminder of waning daylight savings and our near-visceral desire to celebrate the heck out of its passing, symbolizing a return to business as usual—no more summer Fridays, among other (less important) things. 

So before wedding season takes its final bow, you should be getting ready to take yours too, ideally with a long weekend escape that will go down in the books. 

There’s a slew of potential scenarios you might find yourself in during the working man’s holiday, and we tracked some of the dopest kits on style stars that you can emulate to make your last summer hurrah epic. 

Pinpoint your destination below, study the applicable fashion icon and get swaggy on your getaway. 

If you're jet-setting to a bougie beach town...

David Beckham

Not all seaside retreats are created equal, and for those of you who are more Hamptons than Jersey shore, you can re-create this Beckham moment: breezy linen slacks, form-fitting polo, casual upscale loafers… and let’s not forget the classy tan leather accents (belt, skin, wife, natch).

If you're planning a city escape...

Henry Golding

Hit the pavement in paradigm metropolis attire, i.e., layers of black threads. Anything casual will instantly feel more polished in the classic dark hue, so you’ll be both comfy and chic during your final tourist moment of the summer.

If you're off to the mountains...

Kanye West

If elevation is your game this Labor Day weekend, have a proper mountain-man moment and dress the part. Allow Kanye, of all people, to demonstrate: A cozy oversized plaid jacket will always do the trick. BYO fire-making skills.

If you're heading to a lake...

Zac Efron

A long weekend by a lake should always be casual, but a little color coordination never hurt anyone. Make like Zac and embrace neutral shades so you can be leisurely with nary an iota of sloppy.

If you're going hiking...

Shia LaBeouf

If you’re hitting the trails, consider wearing earth tones and a cool oversized sweatshirt. Comfy footwear is a must, but swap for boots if you’re doing treks that actually require a CamelBak.

If you're staying home...

Jeff Goldblum

Not into going anywhere? We feel you. If you’re gonna be staycationing, make it count and go out with a summery bang: Give that tiki top a farewell performance and thank it for serving you well. Bonus if it turns into a twinning moment with your significant other, as seen on the illustrious Emilie Goldblum here. Because if back-to-school is a state of mind, then so is a holiday weekend.
