How will you rock your USA pride on the 4th of July?

As the month of June comes to a close, we look forward to kicking off July with a BANG... literally! There’s no better way to start the month off right than rockin’ your U.S.A. pride on the Fourth of July. 

With July 4th one week away, its time to start planning what outfit you’ll be wearing to showcase your patriotism. Rockin’ the red, white and blue or the stars and stripes, sounds easy enough... Right?  For some, this is where it can get tricky.

The #1 clue you’ve fallen into the ‘worst dressed’ category for the night is if you’ve become the main tourist attraction—Leave the “ohhh’s” and “ahhh’s” for the fireworks grand finale... and not for your outfit.

If you still haven’t decided on an outfit for the Fourth consider today your lucky day! Here’s a list of 5 options to help you celebrate the Fourth of July in style. Let freedom (and fashion) reign for one and all!

Forget the stars and stripes... Its all about the blush and spikes this year for the Fourth! Neutral tones have been seen all over the catwalks and now this trend is making its way to a store near you! 

Channel your inner rock star by wearing an Americana inspired light-wash denim jacket with a pair of blush tone, spiked platform booties-- To make you feel all that more rockin', throw on a pair of oversized Lanvin shades and you'll be ready to make your stage debut-- or a fabulous appearance at your friends barbecue. Whichever you choose to do, you'll definitely be the center of attention!

Available at Sylvie Stripe Knit Top $75, Spokes Cutoff Shorts $65, Jeffrey Campbell Anti Platform $161, Berkeley Backpack $65, Available at South Moon Under- Ray Ban Rounded Wayfarer Sunglasses $129.
Mixing bright colors with the primary red, white and blue is a huge trend we're seeing this year for the Fourth. It can be a little tricky when it comes to mixing bright colors or prints with basic primary colors.

You want to make sure that you have neutral tone accessory pieces (shoes, purses, jewelry, etc.) These pieces will act as a happy median to the rest of your ensemble-- Otherwise, you might end up looking like a walking advertisement for Skittles-- which is definitely something we don't want to see happen!
