The Fourth of July — friends, fireworks and crazy delicious all-American backyard barbecue. What could be better? Looking fabulous, that’s what – in an Independence Day appropriate ensemble that a) won’t have you melting in the crazy summer heat and b) doesn’t make you look like you ARE the Fourth of July parade on two legs.
The truth is, it’s totally fine and expected that you’ll sport the old red, white and blue, but there are ways to display your patriotic flair while still looking cute and current. Of course, what you wear depends in part on just exactly where and how you’ll be celebrating said holiday, so I’ve created some pieces for some likely settings in which you might find yourself scarfing celebrating the freedom of the good ol' USA.
