God bless the USA, it’s that time of year again. The time to dust off the “holiday” labeled box in the back of your closet and make room for some red, white and blue in your July wardrobe. The 4th of July is all about showing your country pride. However, rather than decking out in stars and stripes from head to toe, opt for a couple statement pieces to show some love for the land of the free.
The highlighted ensemble this week epitomizes my mantra for paying a stylish patriotic tribute this holiday. On the sidelines of her town’s 4th of July parade route, this week’s Fashionista starts her look off right with an American flag graphic cropped tank. To complement her shorter length top and to add some extra flare to the outfit, she wears her favorite pair of high-waisted denim shorts with white eyelet trimming. She rounds off her USA influenced ensemble with a casual, yet attention-grabbing chunky red necklace. The emphasis is left to these statement pieces as she accessorizes with a neutral hued metallic sandal and classic Ray-Ban aviators.
Although this week’s Fashionista elected to shop for some stand-out pieces for the 4th of July festivities, this holiday can easily be approached through a DIY take as well. Either hit up the racks at the boutiques this year to find tons of America themed shorts and bottoms or make some unique ones of your own using an old pair of cut-off denim shorts. With fabric paint and the beloved Bedazzler, the possibilities are seemingly endless this holiday. When it comes to accessorizing for the big day, follow this Fashionista’s lead with an eye-catching bright red or royal blue neckpiece or cross-body bag to hold all of your must have items this 4th.
