Style 101: 3 Fourth of July Looks to Wear Now

In theory, Independence Day is a casual family-focused occasion that celebrates both American freedom and Americans’ love of summer, but in reality, it is often far from laid-back. Between all the party invitations and parade routes, it can be hard to find time on the Fourth of July to ever sit back and relax. Forget about finding something versatile to wear! This season, however, we’re declaring our own independence from the same ol’ American flag T-shirt and baseball cap that we’ve been wearing for years, and we’re trying something new and fashionable. Keep scrolling to discover 3 looks for 3 unique Fourth of July festivities that will surely inspire your own wardrobe tomorrow morning. Now, if only we could do the same thing for all those appetizers we promised to make for the block party…

Make it to the parade on time with a little help from this all-American ensemble that we built from the ground up with our skate-inspired Marianne slip-on. A ruffled cotton top is a flirty alternative to the standard T-shirt, while white denim shorts and star-shaped earrings set a patriotic tone. Finish with blue aviator shades and a picnic basket packed with yummy treats so you can head straight from Main Street to the park!

A retro red sundress and our white leather-and-jute Reese sandal make the perfect pairing at an afternoon pool party. Just slip a gingham bikini into Naturalizer’s ladylike Beadit bag–as well as those go-with-everything star earrings–for impromptu diving competitions.

After the sun sets, the parties get started! Watch Fourth of July fireworks in high style with our denim Zahn bootie and a body-conscious red romper. Cargo-inspired patch pockets let you free up your hands to hold sparklers, while star-shaped earrings and a necklace dripping with dazzling firework shapes add Instagram-ready glamour.
