Is anyone else, besides me, in disbelief that one week from today is the 4th of July??? Has anyone else besides me not finalized plans, yet?? Every year there is a big band concert at Gratz Park, everyone brings their own lawn chairs, and food and drink vendors are scattered about; it’s a pretty enjoyable evening!
SO to celebrate our Nation’s 238th birthday, I’ve put together three very patriotic, and very red, white, and blue outfits for this week’s style post. In years past, pretty much every single 4th of July I can remember, it has always been terribly hot and humid, and with outdoor activities being likely, staying cool and comfortable are a must. Whether you are hosting/attending a cocktail party, barbecue, or just hanging out with a group of friends, check out the styles below to help you put together your festive wear!
This dress from Target is a must for any summer activity, and with some well-placed pops of red, nautical sailor or Patriotic Princess, you can’t go wrong with sleeveless and strappy sandals.
Stars and stripes or dots and stripes, you really can’t go wrong with either and since dots and stripes are best friends, it’s a match made in fashion-heaven with this pair of shorts! If you want to keep the patterns to a minimum, opt for a solid pair of navy chinos or skirt instead. And to keep the sun off your face, this monogrammed floppy hat is too adorable not to have!
Stripes upon stripes upon stripes? Um, why not! The key is to mix different colored stripes as well as different sizes to keep it from looking overwhelming. Try a light baby blue paired with red instead of royal to create your patriotic/preppy look!
No matter what your 4th of July festivities may be, remember to dress comfortably because nothing fizzles a great evening like being miserable–no matter how adorable the outfit! What other ways could you incorporate red, white, and blue for your holiday attire?
