How to Dress for July 4th Without Looking Like a 6-Year-Old
You’ve got a big weekend ahead: There’s the neighborhood barbecue, the local parade, your berry tiramisu to make and exploding fire to watch. Rifling around the back of your closet for that flag tee? Eh, not on the agenda. Consider these 7 elevated outfit combos, so you can still wave the flag but not feel obligated to wear it.
Team Red With Black Accessories
Chances are you already have a red dress, shirt or skirt hanging in your closet. Instead of rushing out for a pair of espadrilles, use black shoes and accessories to neutralize the look. Bonus: This get-up transitions well into dinner, post-fireworks.
Let Your Shoes Do the Talking
Throw on your uniform—boyfriend jeans and a white button-down (obvi). Then give the look a Fourth-of-July spin by adding bright red footwear. Wear it again on Wednesday and your coworkers will be none the wiser.
