Independence Day Outfits

4th of July celebrations are just a few days away and if you're like me, the holiday just somehow managed to sneak up on you and you have absolutely nothing to wear for your Independence Day plans. I'm here to help make planning your 4th of July outfit a tad bit easier.  
Outfit #1

This is for you girls who love the laid back, nautical look. This outfit is what I call "patriotic with a twist." A pair of denim shorts should be a staple in your summer wardrobe. If your plans include watching fireworks on the night of the 4th, the weather can be a little cooler after sunset, so tossing on this nautical inspired sweatshirt with a pair of jean shorts and navy blue TOMS is the perfect choice for keeping warm and staying casual, but cute. This is a great way to dress patriotic without wearing too much red, white and blue. Keep your makeup pretty simple, but amplify your look with a bold red lip to tie everything together. 

Outfit #2
Not everyone is a fan of dressing head to toe in the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue on Independence Day. If this sounds more like you, then perhaps this outfit will catch your eye. 
Coral is a hot trend for summer, as well as colored denim. Here you'll see bright coral shorts paired with a soft, lace tank and coral accented accessories and shoes. This outfit may be less patriotic, but it definitely keeps up with the latest summer trends. It's also great for any occasion this summer such as summer BBQ's, parties by the pool, and a day of shopping!

Outfit #3
Maybe you're planning to dress up a little bit more, but still stay comfortable in the summer heat. Maxi dresses and maxi skirts are perfect for this style. 

Here we have a chevron striped, navy blue maxi skirt paired with a simple white tank. But what really makes this outfit is the accessories. Pairing this simple tank and skirt with a cute, white handbag and a pair of studded or strappy sandals really makes this look stand out. If I were wearing, I would replace the braided bracelet for more dainty bracelets to pair with the silver watch for my daily dose of arm candy. :) 

Outfit #4
Okay this is something I'd probably end up wearing. This look is versatile for any occasion you're attending on the 4th and it goes along perfectly with the patriotic trend without going overboard. 

This outfit is so simple, yet so put together. I love the color of this capri blue tank with the high-low hemline paired with scalloped, white shorts. Choosing two pieces with details like this can make your outfit look more put together than if you were to pair a simple blue tank and white shorts. The accessories are perfect in my opinion. What do you think? 
How about pairing this outfit with some red, white and blue nails?

Get patriotic with your nails! 

Hope some of these ideas helped if you're in a pickle planning your outfit this 4th of July! What are you planning to wear to celebrate our countries Independence Day? 

Happy 4th of July!
