OUTFITS THAT GO BEYOND WEARING STARS & STRIPES
Fourth of July may look a little different this year due to the pandemic. Sadly, we will have to limit gathering in large crowds to watch fireworks or going to parties. But don’t let that bring down your style! Looking for an outfit that goes beyond the traditional Stars and Stripes? Here are a few chic Fourth of July outfits to try!
CLASSIC & COMFY
You can’t go wrong with the classic white button-down and denim shorts. For example, I chose this top from Banana Republic and these high-waisted shorts (similar here) from Urban Outfitters. If you’re celebrating stay-at-home style in your backyard, this look is the way to go because it’s light and comfy. Plus, if you are a redhead, you’re lucky to have the best red accessory around! If you’re not, pair this look with a red earrings!
A sleek look with a pair of tailored high-waisted pant and a puff sleeve top is the perfect outfit for a Fourth of July date. I got these paperboy pants from H&M (similar here) and this lace top from Forever 21 (similar). Paring the entire outfit with large earrings (Similar by Lele Sadoughi) takes it to a whole new level. Complete the outfit with little pops of red, like my red heels (similar at Lulus), Coach wristlet, and a classic red lip.
Tired of the same ol’ colors? You don’t have to wear the traditional red, white, and blue to stand out this holiday. Try a bright summer color, like yellow! This yellow and white striped dress from ASOS is the way to go. I paired it with white accessories to keep the whole look airy on a hot day. Seriously, what could be more American than wearing a yellow dress while drinking a cold lemonade on the Fourth of July?
PLAY WITH TEXTURE
If you want to take a typical white and blue look up a notch, play with texture! The key is pairing it with simple pieces so that the accent can be the star of the show. This illusion top (similar here) illustrates this nicely, paired with a simple denim skirt from H&M. I completed this textured look with a hint of hot pink in my accessories. It’s a fun way to play on the classic red color.
Whatever it is that you do for the Fourth, please stay healthy and safe!
