The first party of the year (since March) is probably going to be an Independence Day party! Lemme tell you, by the time I get there, I want to feel GLAM. Gotta make up for all of those days I wandered around looking crumpled! If you did the Marie Kondo thing this spring and are feeling the wardrobe pinch now, let me try and help! We can plan the perfect summer outfit for the patriotic Lars girl.
It looks like life is starting again. To tell the truth, it’s caught me off guard! I have finally become comfortable isolating. Bras have become irrelevant and I’m mastering the art of the video call. Now that it looks like I have to put on real clothing and makeup again, and I’m getting nervous.
I know my nerves are silly – after all, fashion is a way to express yourself. Regardless of what you’re wearing, it should feel like you. I’m thinking a red white and blue outfit will be just the thing to get me excited about fashion again without adding stress. There is some semblance of a dress code, there’s a simple place to start: Color!
Red White and Blue Outfit Brainstorming
The vintage-kick back vibe of Independence Day fashion is so familiar it feels like breathing. But somehow it’s still refreshing! Put a new spin on an old favorite outfit. Or, go all out and invest in some statement pieces.
To me, Fourth of July fashion looks like old Levis, maybe cutoffs. On top is that red flag tee from Old Navy, big sunglasses and a swimsuit underneath. Oh! And your new DIYed tie-dye bandana, worn milk-maid style. That piece is essential.
Truthfully, I love that classic red white and blue outfit. But I have worn exactly that same thing each year since I was four. It’s time to spice it up. Remember my glam aspirations? At the moment, I’m thinking that I’ll pair my blue gingham maxi with something I have yet to find on top (maybe a swimsuit…) and red lips. It’s all about that red white and blue outfit color combo.
We at Lars have put our heads together (metaphorically, don’t worry, still social distancing) to brainstorm the perfect red white and blue outfit for the Lars girl! If you’re feeling risky, dare pairing red white and blue adjacent colors together, like hot pink, teal, and white. If you’re feeling classic, you’ll look fabulous in denim, a white button down, a neckerchief, sunnies, and red lips.
No matter how you’re dressed, remember to have fun with it. Enjoy celebrating!
PS: You can never go wrong with red lips.
Great Independence Day pieces
We are all for going ALL OUT for every holiday, but when looking for a specific holiday color scheme, it is still possible to buy pieces you will want to wear all season long! Like this red and white gingham headband – just image wearing that to picnics all summer! According to Vogue, linen is the “fabric du jour” and this tiered linen dress is what our puff-sleeve dreams are made of. Now that we all agreed to wear white past Labor Day, white wide legs pants like these are more of a staple piece than ever before. Pockets, an old fashioned collar, a unique shade of red, and EMBROIDERED EYELETS? I must be describing my dream summer dress! And this is just the beginning of all of the items I love for the 4th of July this year, explore the links below to see them all!
