The Fourth of July is on a Sunday this year, and chances are, you've got plans. Whether it's a company gathering or a family picnic, rest assured that it's possible to look patriotic without looking ... tacky. Here are a few outfits I've put together that should suit just about any Independence Day occasion -- including the one at the end of the night where you create fireworks with your husband or boyfriend! Read on for some fabulous and (mostly) affordable ideas ...
The look above includes a Petite Stripe Jersey Blazer (Topshop, $110), a Daisy Fuentes Favorite Seamless Camisole (Kohls, $9.90 on sale) a Krizia Jeans pencil skirt (Yoox, $49 on sale) and the MIA Lorena Wedge Sandal (DSW, $44.95). It's perfect for a business get-together or dressier, indoor occasion.
For a more casual affair, I love this look, which manages to incorporate red white and blue without a hint of stars or bars. It includes a Full Tilt Women's Gingham Shirt (Tilly's, $15.97), a scoopneck camisole (Urban Outfitters, $16.00), the Lilly Pulitzer Callahan Short (Zappos, $60) and the Steve Madden Yaccht Boat Shoe (Nordstrom, $49.95)
For a neighborhood party, how about a cute star-covered top and slim-fitting crop pants? This is a Marc by Marc Jacobs top (Bluefly, $89), a Sexy Stretch Skinny Capri Pant (Bebe, $109), and the Jelly T-Strap Sandal (Gap, $19.50).
Oh say can you see yourself in one of these looks?
