Red, White, & Cute: Independence Day Style Guide

Independence Day is just around the corner!  Whether you are attending a barbecue,  a club event,  a beach, or pool party, you have just a couple days to figure out what you are planning on wearing. Below I put together a few cute looks that you can use as inspiration while you are outfit planning.

I incorporated red, white, and blue into most of the looks just to show you that you can be patriotic without actually wearing the American flag somewhere on your person. Not that there is anything wrong with showing your country pride that way. This is just a more subtle alternative!

Check out the looks I put together for you!


Barbecues are generally casual.  You do not have to wear a pair of cut off shorts and flip flops though. Try wearing this light weight jersey dress with a pair of comfy wedges. The blue clutch and red lip with you give that touch of patriotism without looking over dressed. The retro sunnies complete the look and give you the hint of glamour every girl needs!

White Dress- $12.95- H&M
Strappy Sandals- $49.99- Zara
Clutch- $119.99- BCBG
Sunglasses- $13.00- Lulu*s
Ruby Woo Lipstick- $15.00- MAC


The fourth of the July is one those holidays that is generally celebrated all day and all night. Many clubs will be opening their doors as early as 3 p.m. to kick off celebrations. That mean you need a look that will carry from day into night. This hot backless number will turn heads without getting you the “where does she think she is going?” stares. These white wedges give you both sex appeal and comfort.  The gold link necklace and red clutch are the perfect way to accessorize the look.

Backless Dress-$48.00- Nastygal

Whether it is a pool party or a beach party you watch a look that is both hot and comfortable. Pair the white hot bikini with the white denim shorts. Throw the  chambray shirt on top. Make sure to leave it  unbuttoned. Hide your beach/pool hair under a straw fedora and keep the sun out of your eyes with these fabulous mirrored Ray-Ban sunnies. The red Keds will give you a completely patriotic look!

Bikini Top- $17.95- H&M
White Shorts- $19.95- H&M
Chambray Button Up-$29.95- H&M
Fedora- $12.95- H&M

Hope I gave you all a few ideas! Enjoy your Independence Day fashionistas!
