If you are anything like us, you likely share the opinion that it’s important to look festive, but not tacky. So when you are trying to decide what to wear on Fourth of July, don’t overthink it; let us be your stylistic guide.
Wearing red, white or blue independently of one another is a great way to achieve a non-tacky, but rather stylishly festive look. Wherever you can add subtle hints of the other colors, do! Just as long as you keep it consistent with matching hue accessories, you’ll be sure to look like an effortless American beauty. Here are three casual, yet utterly chic looks for your Fourth of July activities! Oh yes, and did we mention that all these fashionable finds are under $90?!
Whether you are heading to the lake or having a barbecue at a friend’s house, this Oh Baby Romper ($88), available at Free People (3.2%/9.2% Cashback) is the perfect Fourth of July outfit solution. It’s a classic staple and it’s absolutely to-die-for, don’t you agree? What’s more, by pairing such a gorgeous hue with a few shades of natural, your outfit goes from zero to impressively bold in a matter of seconds. These Vegan Tulsi Boots ($88), available at Free People (3.2%/9.2% Cashback) will instantly up your style game and after you purchase these boho beauties, your cool points go up by 1,000.
Don’t forget to artfully accessorize the rest of your look! After all, it is a holiday celebration – so make sure you dress up the details a little bit. The Boutique Hannah Shell and Bead Duffle Bag ($40), available at Boohoo (4.6%/10.6% Cashback) is a perfect way to subtly add a pop of charm without going over the top. Then, to complete the look, toss on this Oversized Nubby Panama Hat ($39), available at Urban Outfitters (3.2%/9.2% Cashback), for the finishing touch of effortless perfection. The boost to your ego will be totally gratifying when everyone at the party wishes they had on your ensemble.
If rompers just aren’t your thing, don’t worry; there are a variety of ways you can pull off the perfect Independence Day outfit while staying true to you. Wear a style you’re comfortable with and rock the all-time classic white-on-white look. An exclusively white outfit is a timeless staple and a Fourth of July yes! This Scallop Frill Tee by Topshop ($25), available at Nordstrom (3.2%/9.2% Cashback) adds the just the right touch of fun and flirty, while the Elastic Cuff Pleated Pants by Trouve ($46.80), also available at Nordstrom (3.2%/9.2% Cashback), are practical, comfortable and completely classy.
Then, dress like you mean it. Instead of wearing the same ole boring scarf your friends have seen you in a million times, dare to be a little different and wear this Tasseled Cotton Infinity Scarf ($45), available at Nordstrom (3.2%/9.2% Cashback). This isn’t your run-of-the-mill scarf that everyone and their mom has, and that’s what makes it so perfect. Impress your friends and family at the gathering and allow this scarf to explicitly show them you got style. Oh, and remember earlier when we mentioned to keep it hue consistent? To finish off this chic, all-American gal look, wear the ‘Deldonna’ Slide Sandal by Lucky Brand ($29.37), available at Nordstrom (3.2%/9.2% Cashback).
Festive ensembles need not be a rigid interpretation of that particular holiday. For instance, don’t feel obligated to limit your Fourth of July patterns and prints to stars and stripes. This Stephanie Kimono Printed Shift Dress ($35), available at Boohoo (4.6%/10.6% Cashback) is a perfect way to mix and match red, white and blue while staying incredibly fashionable and tastefully patriotic.
Gladiators are the perfect summer sandal — decidedly a contemporary fashion must-do. Try the Lola Ghillie Tie Up Knee High Gladiator ($70), available at Boohoo (4.6%/10.6% Cashback). The best part? You’ll be able to recycle these bad boys for the rest of this summer and many more summers to come!
