Celebrate Independence day in style!

Submitted by on Monday, 4 July 2011 | No Comment

4th July marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence which took place back in 1776. This of course, gives Americans a great excuse to celebrate this momentous occasion every year with fireworks displays, barbeques and parades. Decorations and of course, clothing, follow a very particular theme of red, white and blue, the colours of the American flag and to help you celebrate in style this 4th July, we’ve come up with a few themed style suggestions for you to try out.

If you’re planning on heading to the beach or even a barbeque celebration party, we’ve got the perfect look for you. Keep it casual and cool in the heat with a striped halter dress, cute wedges or flip flops and a good sized bag. Don’t forget your sun-hat for the ultimate fashion accessory.

Beach and Barbeque party style:
1. Old Navy Striped Halter Dress, $42.94
2. Steve Madden Revolvve White Flip Flops, $23.95
3. Echo Terry Plastic Handheld Tote, $78

If you’re relaxing with friends or attending a celebratory parade, you can keep things extra casual with some cool hotpant shorts and a relaxed vest top. Flip flops and sandals are a must, as is a statement necklace or cool vest top slogan. For evening fireworks display parties, add a cardigan or cape to keep warm.

Relaxed style:

1. Topshop White Love Someone Print Vest, $32
2. Topshop Moto Flag Printed Hotpants, $70
3. ASOS Dico Copenhagan Flat Sandal, $43.10

If you’re off to a bit of a fancier ‘do’ to celebrate this prestigious occasion, you’ll want something a less casual than shorts and a vest top. We love bold coloured maxi skirts and dresses as they’re perfect for working the colour blocking trend and can be easily accessorised with a cool pair of heels. Any heel will instantly glam up an outfit so white not try some stylish clogs or a pair of stack heels.

Party style:

1. Blue Topshop 3D Flower Shift Dress, $100
2. Kenneth Cole REACTION Women’s Shine On T-Strap Flat, $51.99
3. Botkier nude leather ‘Bleeker’ crossbody clutch, $150
