A Fashionable Fourth

July Fourth has always been one of my favorite holidays. For years I spent my summers life-guarding, and July Fourth is the biggest day of the summer at the pool. This day meant grilling out, tons of decorations, diving board contests and as I mentioned yesterday, a greasy watermelon competition. While my attire for the pool was always some sort of spirited swimsuit, now I go for a more fashionable look depending on where I am celebrating. Whether it be a backyard barbecue, destination vacation, day at the pool or special night for fireworks, these style tips are sure to have you ready for a fun and fashionable Fourth!

The White Pant: A classic white pant is the perfect choice for a stylish look while still showing your pride for the U.S of A. Pair it with a chambray shirt for a simple, effortless look, or dress it up with a red or blue tank. You can also add a simple heel or wedge before you head out to catch the fireworks.

The American Flag print: There are so many great tops, tanks, shorts and swimsuits that are embellished with the American Flag. This is a great daytime option, and my favorite is an embellished denim short paired with a white tank. 

The White Dress: Looking for a dressier look? Try your favorite white dress paired with a red or blue necklace. Keep it simple with a nude heel or your favorite wedge. You can also spice it up with a red or blue colored pump.

Denim: Pull out your favorite high waist shorts for the day and transition into a pair of classic dress jeans for night. Denim can be a great splash of blue for any look. I suggest a pair of distressed, high-waist denim shorts with a white lace top.

Accessories: It is easy to make any plain red, white or blue outfit a July 4th ensemble with a few added accessories. Throw in a few blue and red bracelets or add your favorite chunky necklace to take a simple outfit and make it fabulous!
