5 Cute and Easy Outfits for the Fourth of July
It’s that time of year where everything is sticky and sweaty but social demands require that you present yourself in something other than workout gear 24/7 (at least, my hope is you change out of your athleisure from time to time). It’s been awhile since most of us have been putting outfits together for activities and social gatherings and that muscle may have atrophied a bit. Things are starting to open up and many are traveling, hosting or attending parties this Fourth of July weekend. Don’t let the panic of figuring out what to wear dampen the joy of seeing friends again. I have curated 4 outfits plus a bonus pool or beach day look so the only thing you have to worry about is when was the last time you reapplied sunscreen.
All items can be found here in my online catalog. Items are shoppable in the Finds section by clicking on the image and purchasing directly from the retailer. All pieces have been styled into outfits within the Lookbook tab. No time or budget to purchase new pieces? This is still a great resource to shop your closet for similar items to create your own holiday weekend look.
Casual and Classic
This is quintessential classic cool. Who doesn’t own a denim short or pant or skirt that could be paired with a classic button up or popover top? Don’t forget to add some interest in your accessories with a colorful sandal and a summer hat that pulls double duty -- stylish and practical.
A cookout doesn’t have to mean shorts and a t-shirt. Why not opt for a comfortable and stylish maxi or belted linen dress? You will still stay cool but also look incredibly put together. Let the dress be the main show and reach for an easy slip-on sandal and metallic jewelry.
Garden Party Cool
White jeans are way too hot for a mid-afternoon in July. That doesn't mean you don’t have other options like a loose cropped pant in a bright summery hue. For a belted or high waisted pant, choose a short tank that hits at the top of the pant or go for a bodysuit that shows off the belted detailing. You will have “legs for days” when finished off with a tall wedge or heeled slide sandal.
Stylish lil Firecracker
A maxi skirt is another great option to pull off the stylish but comfortable look. I love a button up maxi that has an ample slit to let your legs breathe a little easier and for the look to be less matronly. A white bodysuit that stays tucked in by its very nature is the perfect partner for this piece. However, if you are still hesitant to try a bodysuit, a white or neutral colored tank top will look equally as cute. Add a metallic (which is treated as a neutral!) lace up sandal for some sparkle and top with a wide brimmed hat for the daytime.
Beach Day Ready
I am sure many will be pool, lake or beachside this weekend and if you are still searching for the perfect one-piece look no further! Summersalt has incredible patterns, cuts and colors that flatter every figure and they look amazing and stylish. I can’t say enough positive things. Feel comfortable moving around in your swimsuit with an added extra layer like a throw over poncho style shirt or a matching sarong.
