Remember those 4th of July outfits that you bought 3 years ago and never used again? They included those loud stars and stripes patterns that are only fitting on few occasions. That being said, you also don’t want to wear the same thing every 4th of July. I wouldn’t ether! Life is too short not to feel and look your best.
Here are a few examples on how to get more use of your 4th of July wardrobe:
Blazers are a great way to dress up almost any outfit. They make even the simplest look automatically look more put together. Whenever what I’m wearing feel too simple I turn to my handy dandy blazer to make it look more chic. Now of course you need your neutral colored staple blazers. That includes your tans, blacks and whites but you should also keep some fun pieces that add something interesting to your outfit.
This is where bright colors and patterns come in.
Don’t be afraid of color! I usually gravitate towards neutral colors myself. They always look good and work well with almost everything. Having a few staple pieces with a pop of color will elevate your wardrobe to new levels. Stepping away from our safe place can be difficult, even when it comes to clothes. Most of us wear them everyday hence in a way they become an extension of yourself. Ease into it. A blazer is the perfect way to start.
I see the blazers as an outfit addition. It’s not part of your base clothes. Those are your shirt and pants/skirt etc. It’s something you can easily take off and still be fully dressed underneath.
Meaning if you want to dip your toes into some fun colors and patterns blazers are the way to go.
A great pattern blazer is definitely the thick pinstripe.
Add a red shirt and some blue jeans and you have yourself an outfit!
You’ll be able to enjoy this light linen jacket all summer long. From backyard BBQs to days out on the boat you’ll look great no matter the occasion.
Shirts are a great way to switch up an outfit. While buying shirts for occasions such as 4th of July I try to make sure I buy something I can wear on regular days as well.
If you’re looking for a fun top to wear with your regular shorts or pants try mixing up the patterns.
This light sheer polka dot shirt will serve you well on a hot summer day. You can wear it on or off the shoulders and as low or high as you want it. It is a very versatile piece that you can wear again to a summer brunch with the girls.
If you want to stay a bit more on the safe side. Go with a striped button up shirt.
Wear with red heels and a clutch to finish your 4th of July outfits. You can wear this top buttoned all the way with a pleated midi skirt or open on top of a swimsuit.
Dresses, Jumpsuits and Rompers
I am combining these categories because you don’t need to wear additional clothes with these outfits. All of these can be worn alone and can go as dressy or as casual as you would like them to be.
