When it comes to the 4th of July, we’re not opposed to American flag bikinis… but this year, we wanted to dress the patriotic part a little more subtly. If your plans are casual, the 4th is a perfect time to break out the denim shorts. We love this pair from J.Crew since they are a bit longer and super flattering. A striped top, cobalt oxfords, and a nautical necklace complete the All-American look. If your plans call for something fancier (rooftop view of the fireworks, anyone??), you can dress it up a bit while still maintaining that casual summertime vibe. We love a bright dress, sophisticated sandals, and of course- a bold red lip! Don’t forget to pick up your party supplies, and you’re all set for a stylish Independence Day!!
