With 4th of July just around the corner these easy to wear summer trends will be perfect for any BBQ or pool party.
For a classic and effortless look try this summer’s major stripes trend. Think StellaMcCartney’s tiered striped cotton blend maxi dress with its soft white, sky-blue, peach and red stripes it’s the perfect nod to the stars and stripes without overwhelming.
Or, try this Gucci Bow-detailed ribbed knit-trimmed pleated stretch-crepe mini dress for a more vivid look.
Stripes not your thing? Don’t distress. Solid colors are another easy choice this 4th of July -red, white or blue being the obvious color palette. You can’t go wrong with a white shirt dress white shirt dress – crisp and structured or floaty and feminine.
For a more dramatic statement, look no further than a single shoulder cut out dress or top. There are so many takes on this trend you’ll be sure to find a piece you love, whether it’s something romantic like Madga Butrym’s Marbella asymmetric ruffled silk-crepe midi dress or modern like Tibi’s One-shoulder stretch-faille top Tibi’s One-shoulder stretch-faille top with its pleated cuffs and boxy silhouette. Cropped pants (like these Tibi Wide-legged pants), waist cinchers and corsets are also great options for this year’s festivities.
When choosing your accessories this year don’t hold back. Oversized bags are a hit. They’ll not only stand out but they’ll hold anything you could possibly need for your 4th of July celebrations. Some other fun ways to accessorize are with a pair of over the top earrings -think 80s inspired costume jewelry – or one or more long pendant necklaces. Don’t be afraid to layer them.
To finish off your look, flatforms are a win win – both comfortable and stylish. I adore these Stella McCartney Striped Platform Slides to really get into the 4th of July spirit but there are loads of cute neutral tones too for the less daring.
