Step out in Style in These Fourth of July Outfits
Discover how to put together an ensemble that is as classy as it is festive, and enjoy the celebrations with friends and family.
You may be ready to kick off America’s birthday celebration with some good old-fashioned fun at a BBQ or even a picnic. Enjoy a holiday-themed outfit that is both comfortable and stylish as you spend the afternoon outdoors. This is the perfect occasion for a deep red or navy gingham dress or a chambray button-down with a pair of white shorts. Leave the heels at home, and slip on a comfortable pair of wedges or red sandals to add a patriotic pop of color.
Dive into some R&R on the 4th with some peaceful time near the water. Blend your love for America with a traditional nautical theme by incorporating stars and stripes into your look; either bold navy blue and white designs or more subtle pinstripes are the perfect choice for a day by the sea. This is a great opportunity to pull out your floppy, wide-brimmed hat, and large sunglasses to protect your skin while still looking elegant. Another way to blend function with fashion is to wear a festive sundress over your swimsuit, making it simple to take a quick dip in the cool water and slip back into style.
If you are headed to a cocktail hour or rooftop party, choose an outfit with an understated patriotic appeal. White denim pants are a hot trend right now – pair them with a navy blazer and red heels for a bold complement. Another way to give a subtle nod to the holiday spirit is to choose a festive handbag to go with a classic outfit, adding personality without sacrificing sophisticated appeal.
