We know there is a large contingent of us women who, for some reason, would never wear a Christmas sweater, but when it comes to the 4th of July will openly gravitate to stripes, stars and red, white and blue! In the midst of this Olympic summer, we are finding ourselves a bit in this boat as well…USA. USA. USA. So, whether your mid-week 4th of July plans are taking you to the ballgame or to the beach, to the lake or to the river, to the pool or to the neighborhood parade or just to the backyard, we’ve got you (stylishly) covered in the outfit department with these star-spangled selections from local boutiques.
This sharp look from Oak Hall featuring a blouse by Equipment ($225) and white shorts by ALC ($165) is beautifully accessorized from head to toe with a funky necklace ($495) and bag ($195) that add a pop of color and grounded with Loefller Randall shoes ($375). Each piece pictured here will really work for you in your closet well beyond the 4th of July.
I’m loving this easy-breezy Burning Torch Tunic ($325), Necklace ($175) and glasses ($75) from the always-stylish Kittie Kyle.
Their second look has a more preppy feel. Anchors away! Dress by Crea ($412), Scarf ($180), Bag ($45), Necklace ($48). All of these fab accessories can be mixed and matched in your wardrobe to keep you cool and cute all summer long.
Loving this look that Indigo is showing. The accessories tie together this festive and versatile ensemble featuring Joe’s Jeans Cherry Print Shorts ($148) and white woven top by GLAM ($58) that can also pull double-duty as a cover-up. The Marc Jacobs Meteorite Blue Handbag ($425), Kendra Scott Earrings ($68), Marc Jacobs Bangle ($88), and Lily and Laura Handmade Beaded Bracelets ($12.50 each or 3 for $30) make this outfit firework-ready and fool-proof!
The Pink Door
The Pink Door is your one-stop for all things Lilly Pulitzer and Lilly does not disappoint with these looks! The Libby Dress ($158) in the Sparkle Glow print actually glows in the dark. You won’t get lost in the crowd in this number!
Lilly Pulitzer also has created some great accessories to dress up that snazzy dress including the Ashley Wedge ($218) the Summer Chic Clutch ($118) and last but not least the Shell Yeah Long Necklace ($48) which handily features a bottle opener on the reverse! You know all the boys with imported beers will be flocking to you.
Why should moms have all the fun? Like the ladies version, this Little Lilly Classic Shift ($58) also glows in the dark.
Vineyard Vines by Oak Hall has the whole family covered for the 4th. Their Burgee Sail Tunic ($118) would be great for a day to-night event (sport your bathing suit underneath!) or a back yard bar-b-que! For something a little frillier, try the appropriately named Fireworks dress ($178)
The girls at Southern Couture will have you decked out from head to toe for the holiday with this patriotic chic ensemble featuring Amanda Uprichard top ($125), BCBGeneration shorts ($85), necklace ($25) and J.J. Winters clutch ($130).
Lansky 126 in the Peabody put together this effortless outfit for us that will take you well beyond your 4th of July celebrations. Featuring French Connection’s “Summer Silk Tie Blouse” in Venetian Red ($128), Citizens of Humanity “Thompson” Skinny Jeans in Midnight Madness ($195), Lily & Laura “Multi Glass Bead Bracelets” ($12 each or 3 for $30), Michael Kors “Light Horn Watch” ($180) and TOMS “Cenna Strappy Wedge” ($69).
Strut the Runway
How cute is this striped romper by L.A.M.B. ($415) paired with shoes also by L.A.M.B. ($285) and great blue bag by Melie Bianco ($115).
Have a Happy 4th of July! We are off next week, so have fun and we will see you back on July 9th!
