9 Sophisticated and Festive Fourth of July Outfits
July 4 is approaching faster than you know it. This year, we expect celebrations might get kicked up a notch as more people become fully vaccinated and more of the country opens back up. Rather than pull out your old go-to flag tee, why not elevate things a bit? Here are nine Fourth of July outfits that are equal parts stylish and festive to shake up your summer holiday.
1. Pick Two Out of Three
Don't own much blue? Don't stress, you can totally keep the color out of your outfit. In fact, any combination from the trio (blue with white, red with blue, etc.) will look just as festive without being quite so on the nose.
2. Don’t Try to Fit All Three Colors Into One Piece
Opt for monochrome separates (or dual-toned options like the dress worn above) rather than trying to cram red, white and blue all into one dress.
5. Ditto for accessories
Bold lipstick not quite your style? Tie a red and blue scarf around your ponytail to transform your favorite LWD from simply cute to really ready to celebrate America's birthday.
9. Tuck a Denim Shirt Into a Denim Skirt
Pay homage to one of the greatest American inventions, denim, by wearing it from head to toe. Tailored pieces, like a puff-sleeve blouse or a sleek pencil skirt look much better than cut-off shorts or a chambray tee, especially when paired with sleek white sandals and simple jewelry.
