Dressing for America's BIRTHDAY can be a tricky feat- you want to look fashion-forward and effortlessly chic, but retain an appropriate level of patriotism without looking daggy. Surprisingly, there are plenty of ways to transmute the classic "stars and stripes" motif into a funky ensemble that's hot AF and, dare we say, elegant!
Here's how you can infuse the red, white and blue hues into your Fourth of July edit!
The White Sun Dress
Sky's out, thighs out! Beat the heat in the balmy month of July with a trusty and pristine white sundress. Like every woman's little back dress, a white sundress is an effortless way to ease you through a sweltering and sticky Independence Day.
Whether you opt for a floaty midi dress or a slim-cut mini, a little white dress gives you the option to layer to your heart's content! Now is the time to incorporate those vibrant red block heels and throw over a lightweight royal blue blazer!!!

The Matching Blue Set
An all-white edit not your thing? Don't worry, we'd be worried about barbecue sauce stains too!!
Proudly show your Americana patriotism with a versatile and reliable set that transitions you through ALL of your day to night activities. This includes casual brunches, cocktails and the July 4th fireworks!!! No needless outfit change!
Patriotic Potpurri (The Printed Red Dress)
Nothing says celebration than romantic reds and funky prints that pack a punch!!!
Dare to be different this July 4th? Soft floral or Geo spots are an excellent alternative to the stars and stripes print. A red print dress is a great way to add drama to a daytime edit without going overboard. They're fun, party-friendly and make an immediate impact wherever you go.

Flying the flag (Preppy Stripes)
Fly the thirteen stripes with pride in... well red, blue and white stripes!!!
Like their subtle floral counterpart, this pattern is a great way to rep the red, white and blue theme without going over the top.
Whether you're opting for thin horizontal pinstripes to summery deck prints, stripes are a clean and subtle choice for dawn to dusk edits. A striped top or dress can create some serious depth and structure to contrasting block-coloured pieces and accessories. So go and experiment to your heart's content!!!
Starry Starry Night
Nothing screams patriotism than the fifty states!
Capture the spangled stars and work them into your day dress or scatter them throughout your sunkissed locks! Subtle and pretty, a selection of star-themed hair accessories or a star motif printed dress will raise any off-duty ensemble from a four to an eleven!
Mix N' Match
Lucky for you, nothing looks more sophisticated and summery than a well-coordinated Red, White and Blue look. There's almost a nautical appeal to the three shades.
If you're after a more subdued Fourth of July look, try bringing the iconic hues together using funky accessories. Pair a simple nautical stripe top with pristine white jeans and red block heels. Another option is combining a navy and white geo printed dress with white sunglasses and a classic red lip! All looks are patriotic enough for Independence Day but cool and breezy for the hot July month.
