Whether you’re boating on the lake, watching fireworks in the park, or practicing the true American art of backyard barbecuing, the Fourth of July gives us all a reason to celebrate. Being a fashion addict myself, nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like planning the perfect patriotic outfit! While it’s tempting to throw together your favorite red, white, and blue solids and call it a day, why not look at this holiday as an opportunity to stand out while still staying true to our patriotic color scheme?
There’s no doubt all eyes will be on these Fashionistas this Fourth of July as they channel their inner ’50s to create an effortlessly fabulous look. For the first outfit, a classic, figure-flattering, red polka dot dress is paired with fun, vintage sunglasses to create a photo-worthy ensemble. To add a twist to her throwback look, this Fashionista is rocking white Adidas, one of my favorite modern trends that can be paired with a variety of outfits to add a cool, casual vibe to any look.
It’s no coincidence that these two Fashionistas are a match made in heaven, as the second look perfectly complements the vibrant, red and white dress with a touch of blue. For the second outfit, this Fashionista is staying true to her roots, wearing an all-American, vintage denim skirt from Levi Strauss & Co., found in the depths of my mother’s closet. One of the best things about fashion is that you can usually find a way to recycle it. Before breaking the bank in search of all the latest trends, try working with what you already have. You might discover a few hidden gems of your own!
To complement her vintage denim and bring out her summer tan, this Fashionista is wearing a white crop top with ruffled details at the neckline, framing a simple, gold star necklace in the spirit of the holiday. To complete her look, she is wearing classic, striped Adidas, because what’s more patriotic than the combination of stars and stripes? A red bandana or a bright lip color adds the perfect pop of color that’s sure to stand out!
Struggling to find a jaw-dropping ensemble of your own this Fourth of July? Look no further than the past and ditch your boring basics for a revamped look that will set off fireworks when you walk by.
