July 4th is just a week away! Have you got plans to celebrate? Even more important, do you have an outfit, for your plans to celebrate? Whether you're ready or still working things out, here’s some outfit inspo for every July 4th occasion!
A Backyard BBQ is the definition of a classic way to celebrate July 4th. There's friends, food, and you’ll show up in the cutest outfit! You'll want something that could work in warmer or cooler temperatures while also being stylish and easy to move around in.
A light cardigan is a must so you’re covered (no pun intended) in cool, warm, or evening weather. Underneath, a flowy maxi dress or light paperbag shorts and a simple tank are just what’s needed to easily navigate the food table and keep everything camouflaged after you're done eating everything. To finish off the look, stack up with bold Cuff and Wrap Bracelets for that much needed outfit sparkle.
Off to the beach to celebrate? It’s always good to have an outfit that can easily cover up a swimsuit if you decided to head anywhere else besides the beach. But, something a little more put together, that doesn’t look like a resort coverup or an afterthought.
Jean shorts and a light, airy top like a linen button-down can achieve just that. You’re at the beach though, so let’s have some fun with accessories! A straw hat and flip-flops are a must. For jewelry, neon is perfect, adding a fun pop of color. Pick up a stacking set so you can choose if you want to wear them all or just one or 2. Pair them with a minimal gold layered chain to top it off.
Picnics are a great way to get out of the house and outside to enjoy July 4th. For this, you’ll need an outfit to accommodate all the sitting without compromising on chicness. Sitting outdoors, you might think, “oh I should wear pants”. Wrong! Who wants to sit with a button and zippers digging into your stomach the whole time?
The way to go is definitely a loose fitting midi dress or skirt! No tight buttons or zipper in your stomach and you’ll feel nice and airy. If it flows enough, you can still sit however you want to, plus it’s a great opportunity to make a matching look with your mini-me. With an outfit like this, you’ll want accessories that complement. A Layered Necklace or Chain with a flower pendant, simple Earrings, and a Knotted Bracelet keep things minimal but it'll brings the whole look together.
Whether you’re off to the neighbors or you’re the one with the pool, it’s the perfect way to celebrate a hot and sunny July 4th. You’ll want your outfit to be chic but still look like you could slink into the pool at any time (even if you don't have any intentions to actually do that).
So grab a swimsuit, flip-flops, and the cutest cover-up you own. Bonus points if it's monochromatic for an instantly trendy look. Pool parties are also the perfect place for some dramatic accessories. A wide brim hat is perfect for blocking out the sun AND adding the drama. Get yourself some bold gold accessories to finish off the look, like a pair of large Earrings and a chunky Bracelet. Gold pieces at Victoria Emerson are tarnish-resistant so they’ll hold up great against sweat or even a quick dip in the pool.
A day of fun, and family time checking out the local events. This could mean lots of walking, snacking and games to enjoy so you NEED to make sure you’re comfortable. Fidgeting with your clothes all day can make what was supposed to be a fun day, sour realllll fast.
A T-shirt dress is just what you need for an easy to wear piece that require minimal effort but provides maximum comfort (hot tip, wear spandex/gym shorts underneath for full protection). Add a jean jacket which can be tied around your waist with a pair of cute sneakers and you're all set. With a simple outfit like this, have some fun with the accessories! We’ve got straps for Apple Watches that look just like bracelets. Pairs perfectly with hoops and a gold bracelet on the other wrist.
It’s night time and everyone's patiently waiting for the fireworks. The temperatures have definitely dropped from this afternoon and things are a little chilly. Not to worry, you can still look cute.
Grab a sweater to pair with the shorts or pants you’re already wearing. If you’ve got on a dress, opt for a cozy cardi! And of course, wear sneakers to keep your feet covered. Because you’ve got a sweater on, it’ll be harder to see any bracelets or necklaces. Instead, opt for some stand-out Earrings like big hoops and show the hands some love with Ring stacks. This will give your outfit a complete and intentional feel, even when winding down for the day’s grand finale.
