Must Have: Fourth of July Weekend
The biggest celebration of summer, Independence Day, is nearly here. Isn’t it time you plotted out an appropriate outfit? This weekend’s must haves involves stars and stripes, or red, white and blue — anything that smacks of patriotism will do. The trick, is putting forth a stylish July 4th spirit without giving way to looking gimmicky, so we thought we’d offer up a few suggestions that hit the mark without going over the top. What are you wearing this weekend?
Denim is hot right now (*was it ever not?), and the variation on color, cut and style will play on the patriotic theme without being a one-trick pony. Pick up a red pair of skinny jeans and pair it with a white tee, or throw on your best denim jumpsuit or jean dress and accessories with white shoes and a white clutch. Voila! A thoroughly Americana look you’ll wear year round.
Don’t be afraid to rock your American flag themed tee this holiday, ’cause printed graphic T-shirt’s are trending. Choose a fully printed flag-inspired crop top, or a simple nautical stripes design paired with a flirty skirt or cut-off shorts — this look is a great way to marry style with statement.
There’s no better way to steal the show than wearing the color red. From a cherry red full length skirt to a muted crimson star printed onesie, don’t be surprised if you’re getting more attention than those oh-so-flashy fireworks.
You don’t have to don the red, white and blue to look thoroughly stylish this holiday weekend. Instead, opt for any one of the flag-themed statement accessories that are being doled out by the likes of Free People, Superga, and Tommy Hilfiger. Nothing says patriotism faster than slipping on a stars and stripes printed scarf or clutch.
The holiday is a scant 4 shopping days away, folks! What are you waiting for?
