The holiday weekend is officially here and you’re scrambling about, searching for cookout dish recipes, hostess gifts, and outfit ideas. The struggle to show your patriotism in a chic way has never been more real. It the American flag print bathing suit tacky? The red striped t-shirt boring? Master the Americana style this Fourth of July with these 5 patriotic fashion pieces and how to style them.
Chambray Romper: There’s nothing more American than denim in every type of garment. This season go for chambray, a lighter, softer material with a denim look. The romper is the ultimate effortless outfit choice. Dress it down with white Converse or pair your romper with red sandals or heels for upscale cookouts.
Bandanas: Rosie the Riveter with a twist. Replace your necklaces with a tied bandana to make any outfit look more patriotic. Make a bandana the statement piece of your outfit, pairing it with a simple white top and denim cutoffs.
Red Heels: Avoid stilettos on this fairly casual holiday. Opt for a chunky heel in a bold red tone to pair with cutoffs, raw hem or white jeans, and dresses. A versatile choice, your shoes can be the standout piece with a simple outfit or pair them with another small red accessory, such as a clutch, that pull the outfit together from head to toe. Whatever you choose, red heels are sure to make your look patriotic.
Wide Leg Pants: This style is perfect for a classier look this weekend. With a loose yet flattering fit, wide leg is the way to go for a summer pant. Try a bold color or pattern to brighten your look like the royal blue style below, or a pinstripe to complete your patriotic look. To avoid losing any height in these pants, pair them with a heel and fitted top.
Graphic Tee: The graphic t-shirt is a classic look for the Fourth of July. This year, add style to the look by pairing a graphic tee with a jean skirt or tucked into white jeans with simple accessories. Instead of an overdone flag print top, choose a more subtle look–a white shirt with bold red or blue lettering, a striped top, etc. Complete the look with Converse, strappy sandals or espadrille flats.
