6 Fourth of July Looks That Aren’t Tacky

Some call it the official start of summer, we call it the season of blending fashion and festive for the biggest outdoor party of the year… 4th of July! Let’s face it ladies, when you’re singing Party in the USA or American Pie, you’ve got to look good with  your best style vibes on full display. Dressing up Americana doesn’t have to be all stars and stripes. Take outfits up a notch by shopping stylish red, white, and blue pieces you can reuse anytime of the year.  Without further ado, here’s our “fitspo” aka The LA Girl’s official 4th of July style guide with #OOTD’s that are more tasteful than tacky.

1. Americana Angel

Any kind of denim is perfect for the 4th as it subtly screams old-school Americana. But a denim jumpsuit will take it to the next level. Jumpsuits are all the rage right now and are essentially “a one-stop shop.” The only real job here is to accessorize, because a cute outfit deserves even cuter accessories. Pair your adorable jumpsuit with a pair of red or white cowboy boots, a red lip, some fun sunnies, or even a vintage-inspired bandana for a touch of Americana charm. The beauty of this look lies in its versatility, as you can effortlessly transition from going to a 4th of July parade to playing corn hole to a final firework celebration. Layer a lightweight cardigan or varsity jacket to change your outfit for varying weather throughout the day.

2. Red, White, and Refined

The 4th of July calls for a celebration of freedom, style, and of course our country’s spirited colors. Chances are you have some of these statement colors in your closet right now, so let’s put it together babes. Grab that flowy white mini dress (to keep things fresh) and pair it with your best, fiery red statement heels. A white mini-dress is the perfect base allowing you to accessorize however you please. If these two essentials are missing from the wardrobe it won’t be a bad idea to shop for them since you can style them year-round. To complete the look, add in some jewelry, like these dainty blue earrings, a simple watch, or even a cute cowgirl hat to be on the festive trend.  If it gets cold, add an oversized denim jacket to keep you comfortable while still maintaining your desired look. This look is perfect for a boat party or family gathering and truly combines simplicity with festivity in one stylish outfit.

3. Keepin’ It Casual

4th of July fashion can also be fail safe no matter what the event is, but only if you’re wearing this go-to nostalgic fit: a cool themed graphic tee and jeans. This effortless outfit will embody the spirit of Independence Day while allowing you to celebrate in comfort and style. These casual pieces can 100% be worn year-round too. We love tops that feature a design, a popular brand, or even an iconic American rock band. Match your themed top with a trusty pair of blue jeans either from your closet or shop for a pair with starry details (hurry, these are almost out). Finish this look off with adorable jewelry and a pop of color from your shoes and shades.

4. Poolside Patriotic

Beat the heat at any pool party or beach celebration with this “it girl” look! Make a splash in a playful one-piece bathing suit and a flirty mesh skirt or delicate linen pants. For  your one-piece, find a silhouette or color that’ll bring out the confidence and make you shine like a beach bombshell. Layer in  some lightweight bottoms of your choosing along with some classic slip-on sandals, and a festive-colored bag to look hotter than the bonfire. Don’t forget about the manicure. Brush on electric blue polish and slip on this unique ring  by Hulchi Belluni to get you into a festive mood.

Who doesn’t love the classy look of an iconic Ralph Lauren American Flag Sweater?  Combine this cozy knit staple with a pair of denim shorts, a kitsch trucker hat,  a simple ring or necklace , and classic sneakers. This timeless sweater and shorts combo will keep you not too hot at a daytime picnic, and not too cold during breezy activities along LA’s beautiful coast. Laid-back and effortless vibes are what we’re feeling for the 4th.

6. Cookout Couture

Last but not least, we want to make sure you’re prepared for any event including an upscale barbecue. Elevate your look with a sleek all-white bodysuit and swap out the denim shorts for a bold pair of red pleated ones. Slip on some fashionable white loafers for a touch of sophistication and finish off the look with these dazzling star earrings and a stylish leather purse to match your footwear.
