July 4th is coming soon and that means fireworks, parties and patriotism. A little fun in the sun is just what the doctor ordered following a long winter season. No matter where your festivities take you, show some pride in your country on this very special day. Many people wear star-spangled denim shorts, a red tie top and white loafers while others prefer a more stylish patriotic look. Want a chic Independence Day look? Check out these 5 fashionable trends:
- Casual Shorts and String Top
A cute pair of white shorts, with a bright red string top and a tan or neutral colored sandal, screams style mixed with American pride. What about the blue? Throw on a blue fringe necklace for an added splash of color. This ensemble is perfect for an afternoon BBQ with friends and family, a parade or a casual get-together with friends.
- Subtle Stripes
Nobody says that you must look like a circus tent covered in red, white and blue on the 4th of July. Go for a subtle striped look with an off the shoulder blouse designed with fashionable white and blue stripes. This symbolic stripped blouse incorporates a casual 4th of July fashion when worn with your favorite pair of white skinny-jeans and heels.
- Tie-Waist Dress and Wedge Sandals
Celebrate the 4th of July wearing a red, white or blue tie-waist dress and strappy nautical-inspired espadrilles. These figure flattering dresses are great for any type of celebration and the wedge sandals can provide a classy height without sacrificing the comfort you desire. This ensemble can be paired with a neutral colored hand bag, a festive pair of shades and accessories.
- Nautical Sun Dress
Going from one event to another? Hop from one 4th of July event to another without a wardrobe change. A thigh length nautical sun dress with flat leather sandals and canvas style along with a wide-brim hat, decorated with a blue ribbon, is perfect for the holiday. Throw in a vintage red or blue canvas style tote bag adorned in white overlay straps for a nice style mix. After you fill your stomach with picnic delights, toss your sun dress in the tote and bask in the sun wearing a blue and white stripped bikini.
- Embroidered Top and Jeans
Grab your picnic blanket and watch the fireworks in style. A white top with a hint of red and blue embroidering goes great with cropped jeans. Don’t forget to wear sensible shoes for walking around in the grass as you look for the best place to view the fireworks. A pair of platform sandals is ideal since they can get you where you want to be and then be easily kicked off for blanket time.
