Ahhh, 4th of July! This incredible and important holiday is one of the most important holidays in the American calendar and requires those who celebrate it to pull everything out of the bag. You need to cover your whole house in the star-spangled banner, you need to buy all of the food you could possibly fit in your car to fit for your family and friends, you need to put on the fireworks display to end all fireworks displays, and you need to pick the perfect outfit. So how do you celebrate America’s independence in style? Look no further…
Get your stripe on
If you’re just as obsessed with stripes as we are, there’s a high chance that you already have about 20 striped shirts and even more striped pants and skirts. It’s just a way of life, you know? The 4th of July is the perfect time to whip out all of these stripes and get your true stripe on the go. It doesn’t matter if the stripes on your shirt and your pants are going in different directions, because that’s the whole effect! You will be the human flag, and that’s what you shall be.
The trusty dress and sneakers
Is there anything more comfortable with wearing a dress and sneakers? We think not. You get all of the movement and free-flow of wearing a dress, but you don’t have to wear comfortable sandals that make your feet ache. Right now, this kind of retro vibe is all of the rage, and you can make your smart-casual look even more fabulous by grabbing yourself a leather or denim jacket and casually draping it over your shoulders. What more could you want?
The embodiment of The Roman Holiday
If you’ve ever seen The Roman Holiday, you’ll know that it was Audrey Hepburn at her finest. She showed off her impressive figure in the most elegant and classy way, and 4th of July is the perfect way to recreate this. The best way to do that is to buy an A-line skirt or dress that will cinch you in at the waist but float out at the bottom. Top this off with some stylish sunglasses and some quirky espadrilles, and you will be the best dressed at your street party. Guaranteed.
The denim overalls
If you’re going for a more casual approach to your 4th of July celebrations this year, you might want to invest in some denim overalls – because they will be a lifesaver. These overalls are extremely fashionable this year and can be teamed up with various different shirts to change the look to suit your style. You could go casual with a plain white tee, you could wear something floral and floaty, or you could even wear a bikini underneath. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing.
The matching co-ord
Hands up who loves a good co-ord? We don’t blame you, because they are sooo retro but so darn cool. Matching pantsuits and skirts are the best of both world because they make you look cool and smart, but they also show the world that you love to experiment with fashion. Wear brighter colors if you have an equally bright personality, or tone it down a bit if you’re not looking to steal the show – but definitely team this outfit with white sneakers, a plain white tee (cropped if you can risk it), and some swish sunglasses.
Looking for the perfect 4th of July outfit? Well, it doesn’t need to be as hard as it may seem, because there are so many options for you to choose from! The big question now is… which one will you decide to wear?
