What To Wear :: 4th Of July

what to wear for the 4th of July

As you may know my education and background is in fashion and I consider it one of my top 3 interest {home decor and entertaining round out that list}. I love looking at and creating these style boards on Polyvore and I think it’s a nice change of pace to share these fashion {and home} ideas on the blog once in a while. Since most people will be planning some sort of outing next week for the 4th of July, I thought it would be fun to share some ideas on what to wear for different occasions.

Here are some of the cute pieces I found. Click on the collage to see individual items

backyard bbq

  • A backyard bbq is probably the most casual party you’ll attend. The food and activities could range from burgers to clam bakes, and horseshoes to corn hole. You want to be comfortable and cool! These pieces are cotton so they breath, and the red and blue, mixed with stars and stripes turns these outfits into festive attire. Don’t forget the shades and a hat!

pool party

  • So maybe you’re going to hang out at a pool party or the beach instead. Look like a fashionista simply by donning a swimsuit in red or blue. Add some stripes in the form of accessories, and a sassy cover up that takes you from the water to the tiki bar.

casual dining

  • For some of you it may be later in the day when you plan your activity, or you may be attending a more dressed up affair. I love to throw on an easy, breezy sundress for these occasions. More stripes and red, white, and blue color palette turn an ordinary outfit into a festive one. You’ll need sunglasses at the end of the day too, when the sun is low in the sky.

What are your plans for the 4th? Do you like to keep it casual or dress it up?
