Draw inspiration from the Star-Spangled Banner to show your patriotism this 4th of July. A flawless look is in the nuances. Here are several fashion tips to dazzle your friends during Independence Day’s festivities.
Stripes: This 4th of July, wear stripes and make a bold statement. I suggest toning things down with color. Wide navy-blue stripes over white will mute a busy pattern and still allow you to wear eye-catching accessories without clash. Kule’s casual collared Brooke Blouse is a rolled quarter sleeve top that would be perfect for any summer picnic or celebratory barbecue. You can also add a touch of red to the white and blue combination. For example, Ted Baker London’s Aloes Rowing Stripe Maxi Dress is a chic choice when heading out for the evening. The Aloes Rowing Maxi features a keyhole neckline accentuated by a golden adornment while the thick blue striped textile dress cascades into a deep maroon.
Accessorize: Add a bit of flare to your outfit with these fashion add-ons. For those lounging outside at the start of the day, a textured hat would be a lovely adornment. The Squishee® IV’ Wide Brim Hat by Eric Javitz is handmade cotton/viscose headpiece that looks like straw and is travel friendly. If a hat still doesn’t provide enough protection from the sun, try a fun pair of retro round shades in colors like yellow or pink. Prada’s Cinema sunglasses have rose opal lenses that match the holiday’s motif. At the end of the night, it’s all down to the fireworks, so I recommend accessories that sparkle like a spectacle. Chandelier earrings mimic the shimmer of the firework’s afterglow. Unlike the 4th’s pyrotechnics, the sparkle of Avanti’s 14k Two-tone Gold 3/8ct TDW Diamond Teardrop Chandelier Earrings will last a lifetime.
Red: This Independence Day, red will be the new little black dress. Red is a sophisticated and timeless color that can be paired with just about anything. A flouncy A-line ensemble is a classy option that can be dressed up or down. IEENA for Mac Duggal offers a Double V-Neck Fit & Flare Party Dress that will have you twirling through the night’s affairs. Red isn’t just a fabric color though. A bright red lipstick or polished manicure can also add a pop of color to any outfit. Dior’s Couture Color Rouge Dior Lipstick in Plaza is a showstopper that stays on for hours without drying out your lips.
