What to Wear to Celebrate ‘Merica!

It’s that time of year again! Cookouts, parades, fireworks, lazy days by the pool – everything you look forward to in the summertime jam-packed into one weekend! So what does one wear for such a festive weekend?

‘MERICA colors, obviously. But how? No offense, but as much as I love Old Navy, those flag shirts are a little 5th grade. There ARE plenty of ways to celebrate our country while remaining stylish (and not looking cheesy)

1. Gap star tank.Β I love this shirt from the Gap (featured here on For All Things Lovely). You can really wear this year-round! Pair it with a skirt as pictured below for a chic slightly dressier look or your favorite boyfriend jeans shorts for a casual affair:

 

2. All white with pops of color. I loooove this look from Corals & Cognacs. Summer is the perfect time to do all white. Add a pop of color and you’re instantly festive for the Fourth!

 

3. All over festive. I love this look from Brooklyn Blonde. Casual chic. Perfection.


4. Scarf it up. I happen to own a gauzy American flag scarf that I love to break out around the Fourth (or anytime in the summer). I love how Bows & Sequins styled hers with a nautical top and casual shorts:

 

What are your plans for the Fourth of July? More importantly – what will you be wearing!?

xoxo -A
