The unofficial end of summer comes at sundown, and we’re not ready to say goodbye to the warm weather and long nights. If the summer has to end, the least we can do it send it off in style, right? Beyonce thinks so! To celebrate this day of not working, here’s so musical inspiration for your Labor Day barbecue, cookout, pool party, or day drinking fiasco. Watch and learn.
1. “Party,” Beyonce Featuring J. Cole
Bey’s trailer park soiree is the most fashionable summer cookout we’ve ever seen. Drool over the many fabulous outfits she models in both indoor and outdoor party settings, and marvel at the fact that summertime humidity never seems to affect her hair. Dice, pool toys, and late-night lawn mowing paints Beyonce in a light you may not have seen her in before–as well as provides suggested activities for your own party–but we give this one bonus points for the Kelly Rowland and Solange cameos.
