It's that time of year again! It seems like I just did a post on Fourth of July outfits! I'm super excited about this one because it seems so festive, but not cheesy. For those of you who have been with me from the start, you know that I like simple minimalistic looks, and the fourth is always hard for me! I want to be festive, but I have a hard time wearing the big "USA" across my chest or buying American Flag shorts. I like things that can be worn in many different ways with many different pieces, and I like talking about them with you!
This look brings you red, White, and blue while still making you feel styled. Stripes are one of my favorite (and one of the only) patterns I enjoy wearing. This holiday is perfect to accentuate them! Even though it might be hot, these pants are light and airy for the daytime but provide just enough coverage for later when you're outside watching fireworks. These lace-up espadrilles are all the rave right now. I know what you're thinking! "Lynnie is following a trend?!" However, I only participate in trends when I know I can make them classics, and that's exactly what these are.
Camis are my EVERYTHING this summer. Name a color, I have it in a cami. They keep you cool, they're versatile, they can be worn alone, under things, tucked, tied, you name it. If you get hot, you can shed the layers and still be comfortable and cute. If you're going for something more casual, pop on some cute sneakers or sandals. You don't have to have heels or wedges to complete this festive look.
Another common misconception about Fourth outfits is feeling like you must incorporate all the colors, red, white and blue. This is so untrue! A cute white top would be perfect with these navy pants and it would still be just as festive! I'll pop some cute options below!
All of these pieces are interchangeable. That's what I strive for in my wardrobe. I like to collect pieces that can be worn in multiple different ways, and no one will notice it's even the same piece. Classic pieces can build a perfect wardrobe. This post is to show you that there's no need to go out and buy something overly festive that you'll only wear on this day. I'm encouraging you to use pieces that you already own and create a look based on your style.
Comment below what you think of this post and if you like my new style! Let me know what you'd like to see on the blog soon:)
