Style Inspiration: What to Wear on the 4th of July

Though Intern 1 aka Cliché came up with some great outfit ideas for what to wear on the 4th of July, I figured you can never get enough stars and stripes inspired style!
Our nation’s independence day is next week, and whether you’re going for cool and patriotic or fancy and understated, these three looks should have you covered.

The first look kicks off with American Flag shorts paired with a simple white tank and classic Chuck Taylors. Add a dash of funk with a Melody Ehsani Queen of the Jungle Necklace and bright red nails.

If you want to go for a wee bit more dressed up, opt for a statement shoe. I am *obsessed* with these Nicholas Kirkwood Patent leather-trimmed satin sandals:

Since they’re a lot, go for subtle with a Topshop bustier top and navy shorts. Finish off with a small Coach purse. And if you’re not in the mood for heels, you can always go with a cute flat, like this option by Giuseppe Zanotti:

More in the mood for something elegant? Slip on an easy red jumpsuit, like this option by Catherine Malandrino, buttressed by chic blue pumps.

Keep it cool with a neutral purse, a gold cuff, and simple hoops:
